Absolutely gorgeous soft, short, thick-pile coat.....if there ever was a 'Cozy Coat', this is it! It has a little, stand-up collar, two deep pockets, and two slide slits.
The element I like best, though, is the half-belt! A major 60s fashion statement, this one has contrasting, darker edges and is fixed with big buttons at each end.
The big buttons on the front are just for show; the coat actually fastens with five buttons and button-holes in a flap in the lining.
There is also - if you need it - a little hook and eye fastening at the neck...you don't get cozier than that!
In all honesty, I have no idea whether this is real fur, or not...it doesn't have the coldness of the real thing, but I have to admit that the lining - which I have tried and failed to photograph - is a jacquard, with big, spotty cats in various poses woven into it.
In generally very good condition - the lining is complete, there are no stains or marks as far as I can see, although there are some small signs of rubbing at the edges where the fur has been turned and hemmed - there are years of wear in this lovely coat! Approximate measurements are 44"/112 cms under the arms; 37"/94 cms length, 24"/61 cms arm from shoulder to cuff.
