    Show Us Your OVERCOATS

    Below is my favorite overcoat. It's British, no label, and the construction and quality point toward the 1930s. A Donegal herringbone tweed -- dig those colorful flecks! Plain back.

    And here's one from a local Goodwill. From the later 1930s, I reckon. The wool has heathery variations of Fall colors, hard to pick up in the photos. It has the weight, density and slightly fuzzy texture of a horse blanket. Plain back, no half-belt.

    To be continued ...

    I just picked up four of them the other day. One is dated 1950. I'll get some pics.
    Well, ain't this place a geographical oddity. Two weeks from everywhere!

    Nice coats. I have a couple to post and also some other stuff. I need to get the time to take some pictures.
    By the way, what's the difference between an overcoat, a topcoat and a greatcoat? Are they just different names for the same thing?

    Interesting ... your polo coat has a collar that's more typically found on an Ulster coat. Like it!

    Repeat post from the Powder Room thread

    Look what I found!

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I rarely go into this thrift shop, because it's picked over so much. But look what I found on my visit last week! The wool coat is in perfect condition and was $5!! The only thing I love more than the coat, is me wearing it!

    <snipped non-overcoat comments>

    Happy happy me.

    I have a couple. Nothing fabulous like the other ones on here. None of them are very good pictures of them, either.


    (me goofing around. Disregard the cane and tennis shoes)
