1950s-1960s Robert Lewis plaid peacoat

http://www.ebay.com/itm/281424741232
This vintage coat was made in the late 1950s-early 1960s by then popular outwear maker, Robert Lewis. The design is somewhere between a peacoat and a mackinaw. The two have always been close in design- hip length and double breasted, with the fabric being a large part of what sets the designs apart. This one is a close copy of a post-WWII peacoat in terms of cut (with the pea coat anchor buttons really cementing the style), but made in classically mackinaw napped wool plaid fabric. The muted plaid makes it suitable for both casual and more dressy looks. The coat is lined with a warm pile material and quilted sleeves.
