It came from Simpson's originally and is a wool/viscose blend. I need to have it cleaned, and I need to find new buttons for it. Otherwise it is perfect, with no tears in the lining at all, and I am smitten with it! It's all about the collar and that lovely weave.
Today I had a bit of a dream thrifting experience. Thrifting, lately, has been difficult; I've been far more choosy, and I am convinced the prices have doubled (they are still inexpensive, of course). A few weeks ago I found a coat for sale in estatesale's Etsy shop and seriously considered buying it. I have had a few bad experiences in the past little while with respect to buying vintage clothing online, and I hesitated... and I hesitated just long enough for someone else to snap it up! I kept the coat in mind and continued to browse the coat racks, looking for something similar. Was I ever surprised to find this one! And it fit, too! And it was $20! I was giddy.
