1930s Armorknit overcoat

http://www.ebay.com/itm/281013663538

This vintage overcoat was made in the 1930s by Armorknit and was sold by Kennedy’s under their “Club Clothes” Label.  It is marked a size 40, but has a 52″ chest measurement, placing it squarely in larger territory. It has a 1936 union tag, which places its date of manufacture between 1936 and 1939.  It has wide notch lapels, raglan shoulders, and button cuffs.  There is a chew on the hem near the corner, and some staining to the lining near the label. This is some of the weightiest overcoat material I’ve felt- it really lives up to the “Armorknit” name.
Chest: 26″Length: 47″Center to Cuff: 36″
