This vintage coat was made in the 1920s. It is made from heavyweight mackinaw wool, and from its rugged material and cut, was probably intended more as a working overcoat than a dress one. It is double breasted, with a relatively narrow wrap, a broad collar and beautiful brown buttons. It has a buttoned rear belt, which likely buttoned to segments to form a full belt. As is typical of coats which had the option of wearing with or without, it only has the back belt. This coat has chunky buttoned adjuster belts at the wrists, flapped cargo pockets and is un-vented. Typical for mackinaws and work coats of the time, it is unlined save for the sleeves, with the warmth coming from the heavy weight of the dense wool. This one ended up selling for hardly anything after a bidder canceled his bid within hours of the end, revealing all the other bidders high bids and scaring off any potential new bidders.
