http://www.ebay.com/itm/271670853068
This vintage overcoat was made in the 1930s and was sold under the Fifth Avenue Year Bonded Clothes label. The coat is a 3×6 double breasted, with flapped pockets and a breast pocket. The back is belted, and the coat is half-lined, with a flannel underlayer to the lining. The coat is made from a heavy boucle wool, giving it a nice textural depth. I can find no wear to the coat, and the rear vent was never opened.

Shoulder to shoulder: 18″
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 26″
Length (Base of collar to hem): 47-1/2″

This vintage shirt was made by Palladium Fifth Avenue in the 1950s. This type of lace up pullover was popular following inclusion of a similar style in such programs as Disney’s Davy Crockett serial. This sueded cotton version is a fairly sedate interpretation of that look.
