ANOTHER UNUSUAL FIND FROM MY CLOSET – TRUE VINTAGE EARLY 1950’S COAT

IMG_0114

Love this true vintage coat!  Beautiful wool, by Sterling, also with a one-button closure and lovely shawl collar.  This kind of sumptuous material is pure vintage and the pattern makes it unusual.

Neutral colors make it perfect for any cold season – autumn on into winter.

It was a surprise find that I snapped up in a flash!  Most of my finds are that way, which is what makes vintage-hunting so much fun and such a wonderful bargain.

Iconic ’50s/early ’60s Suede #Coat w/Mink Trim

Iconic '50s/early '60s Suede #Coat w/Mink Trim

I have found several coats like this in my searches for #vintage #fashion. Obviously, it was a very popular style in the late’50s/early ’60s, in a fall/spring weight rather than for winter. They are made of fine #suede, with covered buttons and two front pockets. The collar can be worn open or hooked in front to form a cowl.
All the coats I have seen have been in earth tones of beige to dark brown, rust and olive. These are beautiful coats. In my experience, suede is not difficult to care for if you don’t mistreat it.
I always clean any little spots with a foam cleaner made for suede and a brush. Ask your shoe/leather repair professional for advice and always read directions carefully on any care product before using. Add some gorgeous true vintage #coats to your wardrobe!

A COAT OF A BEAUTIFUL COLOR

This true vintage coat doesn’t get the showing it deserves in this photo.  Imagine it on a larger figure and glowing in deep ruby red.  It has just one small, hidden button closing it in front.  This allows for movement on the body and an elegance different from a coat with buttoned front but is still very warm.

100% Virgin Wool, a beautiful lining and deep slash pockets are common quality elements in these vintage garments.Image  It is definitely a “statement” coat and will last for years.
