This vintage overcoat was made in the 1920s-1930s by Regency House of London and New York. It was styled in Golden Square, London, and was sold by Carson Pirie Scott & Company, a high end department store based in Wisconsin. It is made in an extremely bold black and white herringbone tweed, with raglan shoulders, broad lapels, a plain back and button adjuster cuffs. It is half-lined, as was typical of overcoats of this period. There is an internal breast pocket, a smaller pocket, and a button on throat latch for cold weather.
