My Vintage Coat

Last summer, while digging around some antique/vintage shops, I came upon this coat.  Honestly, I am not usually a 'Vintage Clothes Gal', but this coat spoke to me.  I slipped it on and fell in love. My husband took one look and said, "Buy it".  Eighteen dollars (that's right, $18) later, the coat was mine.
This pic was taken on a hot August afternoon!

It's from the 1950's and it's is great shape:
That's the arm - not a tear in sight!
It's wool and very warm.
I did a quick search of this company.  They started in the 1950's in New Jersey.

I bought a pair of dark brown leather gloves to match.  Yes, I paid more for the gloves that I did for the coat!

The coat has been worn many times this winter and I can tell you, it's very warm! 

Short and sweet this week, my friends.  I hope you enjoyed hearing about my 'Vintage Find'.  Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful week!
