1930s-1940s ClothCraft blue tweed overcoat

This vintage overcoat was made in the late 1930s-early 1940s by Clothcraft for the Standard Clothing Company of Williston, North Dakota. It bears an Amalgamated Clothing Workers of America union label, though the way it is sewn, you can’t see whether it is a 1936 or 1939 variant. My guess would be a ’39. The coat is double breasted, with handwarmer pockets. It is made of a heavy blue tweed. The coat is half-lined, as was typical during this period.
Chest (pit to pit): 23″ (doubled = 46″)
Shoulder to shoulder: 16″
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 25-1/2″
Length (Base of collar to hem): 45″
