This vintage sheeplined coat was made in the early 1930s and was sold by the JC Penney Co. It has a nice early Penney’s label. It has a green cotton shell, with leather reinforced handwarmer and cargo pockets. As is typical of the style, it has loops instead of buttonholes. The coat is lined with sheepskin and has a sheepskin collar. Sleeves are blanket lined and there are knit storm cuffs. It appears that the sleeves were shortened at some point, exposing these cuffs.

Chest (pit to pit): 25″ (doubled = 50″)
Shoulder to shoulder: 21-1/2″
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 23″
Length (base of collar to hem): 35-1/2″
