This vintage coat was made in the 1950s by Frank Bros under the Frankoat label. It was sold in Vincennes, Indiana by Albert’s, Inc. It is made of a gray tweed wool, with a velvet collar to give it that Chesterfield overcoat style. By the way it wraps from the front to the back of the collar, my guess would be that the velvet collar was added by a tailor after the coat’s initial manufacture. The coat has a plain back and cuffed sleeves.

This vintage overcoat was custom tailored in 1939 by the A. Nash Company of Cincinnati, Ohio. It is a classic double breasted style, with a belted back. For some reason, someone has moved the buttons on the belt back to make it longer, but moving them back is a simple fix. It is half lined with a center vent. It has an early variant 1939 union tag which I have not seen outside of this coat.Chest: 24″Shoulder to shoulder: 19″Shoulder to Cuff: 26″
