Long Ivory Wool Swing Coat, Stewart's of Baltimore, vintage 1950s, size ranges

$ 82.00 

This long ivory-color wool coat has a classic 1950s swing silhouette, flaring from shoulder to hem. It is a high-quality piece with excellent tailoring from Stewart's of Baltimore.

This coat would be a standout and functional piece in a current winter wardrobe. It mixes and matches well with casual and formal wear. I love it with jeans, boots and a tunic, or with a pencil skirt ensemble. It is a warm and pretty piece.

The woven and brushed wool fabric is by Stroock, a designer of high-end 1950s woolen fabrics; it has a lovely, soft texture. The collar has an interesting fold-back detail, and the coat has two front patch pockets. The sleeves are wrist-length, cropped to show off long sleeves or long gloves.

The three original large buttons are each covered in a spiral of satin braiding. The collar closes with a thread-wrapped hook and eye closure and a fabric-covered snap. The coat is fully lined in a cream-colored, smooth satin.

This coat is in excellent vintage condition, with few signs of wear. It has been well cared for and is clean. It has three labels: "Stewart's of Baltimore," "Rosewin," and "Exclusive Fabric by Stroock, 488033, Creator of America's Most Distinguished Woolens."

The size is unmarked, but it would fit a range because of the swing style and angled tailoring at the shoulders. It would fit a size 4-14, depending on specific measurements and desired fit.

Shoulders (across back): 17-19 inches (flexible due to angled seaming)
