Vintage Winter Coat Harrod's - Size: One size (see dimensions) - Red - Coat

£150.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

A stunning dark wine-red 1950s coat from Harrod's. The person who donated this item to us has noted that it was bough by her father for her mother in 1955 or 1956 and has been in their family since.

About knee-length, with a single button beneath the wide faux fur collar. Smaller decorative buttons on the cuffed long sleeves. Side ties on the inside (for tightening the garment fit). Two diagonal welt pockets. Fully lined.

Harrod's, London.

No composition or care labels. Possibly a wool mix outer with acetate lining.

No size label. Dimensions:
Total length (from top of shoulder to bottom) - 108cm/42.5"
Shoulder width (across top) - 38cm/15"
Outer sleeve length (from top of shoulder) - 56cm/22"
Inner sleeve length (from under arm stitch) - 40cm/15.7"
Width at bust level - 54cm/21.3"
Width at waist/hip level (pocket height) - 60cm/23.6"
Fur collar width (at widest point) - 12cm/4.7"

The coat's outer is in very good condition; however some of the cuff stitching and the inner lining need repair, as the latter has pulled away at the stitches in several places and along the bottom of the garment.
