This vintage coat was made in 1950s by King-O-Wear Outerwear. It is a car-coat length, with a four button front. The coat has leather buttons, decorative stitching on the collar, large patch pockets, a ticket pocket flap, and incredible three button cuffs. The coat has short double vents, and a rare 1949 Amalgamated Clothing Workers of America union tag which I have only ever seen on other King-O-Wear products.

Chest (pit to pit): 24″ (doubled = 48″)
Shoulder to shoulder:18-1/4″
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 24-1/2″
Length (base of collar to hem): 33″
