1920s Sheuerman mackinaw coat

http://www.ebay.com/itm/271766836676
This vintage mackinaw coat was made by Sheuerman Bros of Des Moines, Iowa. It is double breasted, with broad lapels, patch pockets and a buttoned belt. The coat is gray with a subtle overcheck. As is typical of mackinaw coats of this era, it is unlined. The construction appears that there was a vent that has been closed, possibly the coat was shortened. The label is typically 1920s, with a black background and yellow lettering. Sheuerman’s slogan was “from sheep to shape”.

Chest (pit to pit): 22″ (doubled = 44″)
Shoulder to shoulder: 16-1/2″
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 27″
Length (base of collar to hem): 36″
