Curly lamb fur jackets and coats were common dressy items for mid-century women to own. I picked up this example because I don’t have one in this length and I just love the tailoring.
Of course, the cut and finishing are beautifully-done. The lining, especially, caught my eye with it’s embroidered design and the original owner’s first name and last initial stitched inside.
Such fun to wear! Today, without the rigid rules about dress, an old fur coat looks just as great over jeans as with formal-wear. I love enjoying these vintage garments while they last and am happy to watch real fur go out of production.
