1939 dated A. Nash overcoat

http://www.ebay.com/itm/281050527362

This vintage overcoat was custom tailored in 1939 by the A. Nash Company of Cincinnati, Ohio.  It is a classic double breasted style, with a belted back. For some reason, someone has moved the buttons on the belt back to make it longer, but moving them back is a simple fix. It is half lined with a center vent. It has an early variant 1939 union tag which I have not seen outside of this coat.Chest: 24″Shoulder to shoulder: 19″Shoulder to Cuff: 26″    PhotobucketPhotobucket

Fire Department Jacket

http://www.ebay.com/itm/281033480027

This vintage jacket was made in 1949 by the Gibson Wear Well Company of 164 Washington Street, Boston, MA. It is a four button jacket, single breasted, peak lapel.  Unlike a uniform / workwear jacket, it has no lapel buttonhole, breast pocket, or any pockets at all for that matter.  The buttons are all silvertone, marked “FD”. It has a United Garment Workers of American union tag. It is marked a size 42, but its chest measurement of 44″ puts it more in the territory of a size 40.

Fit Reform Overcoat

http://www.ebay.com/itm/271111740248

This vintage coat was made by Fit reform from “Elysian” British wool fabric in the 1930s.  The fabric has the most incredible pattern and texture.  The buttons need to be re-stitched, the middle one is loose, the top and bottom buttons are not shanked and are too tight against the fabric to button easily.  It is single breasted, with handwarmer pockets and raglan shoulders.
Chest: 22″ (doubled =44″)
Center to cuff: 35″
Length: 46″
