Some time ago, I happened upon this treasure in one of the local thrifts--truly one of the gems of a decade of thrifting. Rarely does a day go by that I don't lament not being able to wear this coat. But the simple reality is that I'm not ever going to fit into it, so I offer it here with the hope that it'll find a good home. Quick description: dark charcoal chesterfield top coat from the 1930s; flap pockets; chest pocket; peak lapel; velvet collar; center vent; fully lined in black bemberg; 3-button front; nipped waist; near mint condition; very heavy fabric (20oz+). My best guess is that it's a size 36, so good news for the more slender among us. A few measurements: 19" across the shoulders 23 5/8" sleeves 41" chest 42" long Cost? Nothing. I'll even spring for the postage. It's but a small gift to a forum that has given me so much. However, if you were so generous as to offer in return perhaps a nice pocket square, a Carlo Franco tie or one of the new Mulberrywood grenadines, I certainly wouldn't say no. Just a few conditions: (1) You must agree that the coat is for your use only and that you won't attempt to resell it. (2) You must live in the United States or Canada. (3) So heavy is the coat that I'd prefer it go to someone generally north of the Mason-Dixon line--someone who'd get some use out of it. But I know there are some southern precincts where the winters can be particularly brutal, so this requirement isn't firm. (4) PM me to let me know of your interest.
