Maybe I should more with out the gun
There are some who would agree...
But, in the end, it's all about the coat.
I just used it for fun/looks 1920's-30s
Nice looking coat, mid-fogey.
Here's another one of mine. The white thing on the lapel is a curling button I put on.
Nice heavy wool. Pebbled buttons. Belted back with a deep pleat to the vent, which buttons up.
1965 issue- East German?
I just bought a heavy wool Korean War era overcoat with button in liner.
It has 7th Army patches on the shoulder. Will try to post pics soon.
I just love animal prints, and I can't wait to receive my new treasure.
my husband HATES "animal print" anything- I think he thinks they are a little "ab fab" or something.
But most gals I know, especially vintage lovin' gals, can't get enough of leopard print/ zebra printa, spots, etc
My Hat looks black lol but its not.
This one is black
Dinerman, that 1st one of yours...the one with buttons got crosses. Swiss army surplus I'd bet on that.
I got one JUST like this for Christmas (Ebay). Even the clasp is exactly the same. Mine has no furrier's label in it, so I knew no way to date it except for the bakelite.
holy cow that looks great, Diner!!!! Rappson you say?? any other details??
i have an interesting contemporary coat that has a hint of vintage...ill get some pics...
My newest overcoats
My first piece of vintage couture, circa 1960's. I got it a couple months ago, but it needed some repair work, and I decided to NOT go to the first alteration person in town after she told me I should "Just throw away all those old clothes" and made a face. :eusa_doh:
and my new $3.25 1950's overcoat that I got today. Gotta love it:
It looks handmade, very well hand made at that.
I found today a original victorian jacket (1890) and a new 1930's overcoat last week as well a 1930's overcoat.
I hope everyone else is getting as much use out of their overcoats as I am today. It is Freezing in NYC!
Today I pulled out my Korean War era overcoat. It weighs about 10 lbs but is worth the effort to wear.
Now this one isn't mine of course...
..but it is the one that Tom Hanks wore as Mike Sullivan in 'Road To Perdition'. Available on eBay as we speak!
Which one of us will end up with this beauty?
Vintage Rainfair raincoat with removable wool lining. It's in perfect shape with a great glenplaid pattern. It even has a throat latch. Paid $10 for it at thrift:
It is probably late '80s or early '90s, but very nice nonetheless.
That is a great coat.
Not me - I've already got one just like it.
