    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 ...

    Where can one purchase those 1930s style Donegals??? You never see those patterns at Magee of Donegal's site.

    from OFAS...

    I won this overcoat some time ago. It has a half belt. It also has a pocket with a small Talon zipper on the inside. There are no labels though. It's not super heavy but feels as though it will be very warm.

    Wow-that's an incredible cut for a man's coat. Did you move the buttons or did it come like that?
