This is such a classic piece of tailoring from the 1940s.
Made by Martinex, it is made from slightly textured wool and is fully lined. A wonderful fit and flair Princess coat it has exceptional detailing with large pleats in the front and back skirt sections, huge shoulder pads to give the statement 1940s silhouette and beautiful detailing on the cuffs.
A timeless piece.
It will fit up to a 42" bust, depending what you're going to wear under it. However, to ensure that it will fit you properly, please compare the measurements below to a similar item you already own.

Very good with minor points to note;
- there is a small darn between two of the buttons. It can't be seen when the coat is done up
- it has been stored for a number of years and so has very mild storage odour
- the binding on the bottom of the coat has been replaced
