This gorgeous vintage wool coat with attached scarf is full length at about 46 inches. The pictures do not do it justice! The color is not accurately depicted as it has a rich, beautiful red color. It's a very well-made coat by textile giant J.P. Stevens using Forstmann woolen fabric from Germany. It has a faded union label that dates it to being made between 1974 and 1995 although the style looks to be mid 1980s to early 90s perhaps. It's a very heavy coat and has lovely red satin lining. I could find no label to identify the fabric but looks to be wool. The cuffs can be turned up so that the beautiful red and black wool contrast can be seen. The attached scarf is black wool with red satin lining on the other side. The whole inside is red wool and red satin. There is a Steven's Forstmann sewn-in label. As it is a vintage coat, it shows a few areas of wear including a small area on the left lapel as shown in the picture but this is partly just where the button is sewn on and doesn't really show when worn. The red satin lining shows a few small holes as pictured. The outside of the coat shows some light wear to the wool but it's hardly noticeable. This is a great unisex coat although originally made for women. It's a very heavy coat to wear. A beautiful runway piece! For references to length, model in pictures is 5'5" plus heels.
- armpit to armpit lying flat is about 22-1/2 inches
- side to side lying flat about mid-pocket slits is 25-1/2 inches
- length from shoulder to hem is about 46 inches
- arm length from armpit to end of sleeve is about 18 inches uncuffed but it really looks better to turn up a cuff so the red wool shows.
This is a large and heavy coat and will take one with a substantial body build to wear it. Guaranteed vintage and guaranteed to make you stand out from the crowd! *More vintage coats from the 1980s and 90s to be listed soon.
