Sears Shawl Collar Mackinaw

http://www.ebay.com/itm/281017848697

This vintage shawl collar mackinaw was made by sears.  While it was made around 1970, the style remained unchanged since the 1910s save for material.  In the early models, they were generally wool, by the 1930s and 1940s,  many were canvas with sheepskin linings and collars.  This example replaces that sheepskin with acrylic pile, and the canvas shell with corduroy, but the idea is the same.  This coat has four main front patch pockets.  Two have smaller cigarette pockets on them, which close with Talon zippers.  There is a loop for closing the collar when it is turned up.  The coat still has all of its original tags and has never been worn.
Chest (pit to pit): 22″ (doubled =44″)

Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 24-1/2″

Shoulder to Shoulder: 17″

Length (collar to hem): 36″
