This vintage overcoat was made in the 1930s by “Wear Well Clothes”  It is a classic double breasted style, with sharp peak lapels, and a 4×6 buttoning. It has a pleated and belted back, and a nicely tailored nipped waist. Functional breast pocket. It is half lined.  The coat is in very condition- a bit of fraying to the label, and some light overall wear. It is a heavy navy blue wool. The 44″ chest means it should fit a 36, 38 or 40, depending on the layering underneath.

Chest: 22″ (doubled = 44″)
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 25-1/2″
 Shoulder to Shoulder: 18″
Length (collar to hem): 48″
