    I recently got this Kuppenheimer Valgora Coat from the latter half of the 1930's, I believe.

    It's a blend of baby mohair, alpaca and wool.

    Will probably be wearing it tomorrow if I go out, as the cold weather has returned.

    I'm guessing very late 50s or 60s because of the really narrow lapels.
    Anyone out there got a better estimate?

    Same estimate here, can't narrow it down either. The Union tag is the 1949-1962 in the regular version without the (R) symbol. Could still be later than 1962, of course.

    Nice one, DH.
    Although I'm a fan of wide peak lapels I really dig that weaving!

    Nice one, Fastuni. Love the "coarse" texture of the herringbone weave and the scallopes.
    Was it an offer at the German 'bay? Think I recently saw a very similar one...

    Here's a couple. 1930s belt back, and perhaps an early thirties SB peak lapel.

    Nice ones, DM and Eddie. Like them all - the different button stances are good for comparing!
