This is such an amazing piece.
Made in the 1930s by Peter Robinson, this inky black boucle wool coat is a wonderful example of 1930s tailoring. The fabric is nubby with a slightly rough texture. It has slim fitting sleeves with seamed cuff detail and the double collar is seamed in the same way as the cuffs. The coat fastens with 3 oversized mother of pearl buttons and when both lapel buttons are fastened the coat has a stand up collar. The collar is versatile and can be worn with both buttons fastened or it can be left with just the middle button fastened, showing off the double lapels. There are no pockets and the coat is fully lined with black crepe.
A truly spectacular piece!
Will fit up to a 36" bust but to ensure that it will fit you properly, please compare the following measurements to a similar coat you already own.
Measurements taken on the outside;
Flat bust 18.5”
Flat waist 18"
Flat hip 20"
Shoulders between sleeves 14.5”
Underarm sleeve length 17.5"
Neck to hem 44”
Very good with some minor points to note;
- there is a darn on the front left of the coat right beside the middle button. It looks like the button has been moved to make the coat a little bigger and the darn looks to be covering where the original button was
- there is a darn on the back right shoulder
- a darn on the left side seam
The darns aren't too noticeable due to the texture of the fabric
- there is some slight iron shine on the lining
- there are a few small holes in the lining
