http://www.ebay.com/itm/281560310641

This vintage overcoat was custom tailored in November of 1951 for a Mr. Leon E Nark of Hershey, Pennsylvania. The coat is a classic double breasted style with 3×6 buttoning and a belted back. The coat is half lined, and has cuffed sleeves, pick stitched lapels and flapped patch pockets. The fabric is wool but feels like it may be a blend with cashmere.

Chest (pit to pit): 23″ (doubled = 46″)
Shoulder to shoulder: 19″
sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 25-1/2″
Length (base of collar to hem): 47″
