Today’s big thrifting finds were a pair of vintage double-breasted over coats.
The first one is a glen plaid double-breasted long coat. The tag suggest that the coat is a size 42 but it fits my 38 chest very well. There is absolutely no need to have it taken in around the torso area. However, I may do some slight alteration work to change the buttons and reduce the length of the back center vent, which is extremely high.
Here is a close up of the pattern and the buttons on the coat. The color combination is a dark red, black, gold, and cream.
The second find is a tweed double-breasted herringbone, window pane over coat with a touch of speckled pattern. The size is listed as a 40 but this one fits fine, also. I doubt if I change any aspect of this coat.
Close up of the pattern and buttons. Color combination consists of brown, tan, orange (window pane), and red speckles.
I found each coat for the low low price of $14 a piece. Please join me and give a warm welcome to the two latest additions to me eclectic closet.
saw these two on Andre 3000 and John Legend…
