Cary Grant would so have loved to be seen in this!

This exquisite dressing gown/smoking robe - made by the venerable company State-O-Maine, in excellent vintage condition: I can find no flaws other than a few barely discernible spots on the collar, a tiny white spot on the sash and another on the cuff of the right sleeve; It looks to have been rarely worn. The fabric of the robe and the lining feels like buttery silk but I believe it to be a fine blended rayon or satin. While this piece was deigned for a man, it would be wonderful as a woman's "boyfriend" robe, as well.

Please be sure to note the beautiful shawl collar - 4" at its widest and 2"wide around the back; note, too, the gorgeous 2" wide and 43" long sash; the sash, collar and 3" wide cuffs are all solid Merlot while the body of the robe has Merlot on Merlot striping. There is a roomy 6" pocket at each hip and a 5" wide breast pocket on the left side - all 3 pockets are edged in solid Merlot. The interior is lined in Merlot.

Approximate measurements:
Armpit to armpit: 22"
Shoulder to shoulder: 19""
Back length: 54"
Sleeve length: 27"

What a wonderful example of 1940s - 1950s distinguished men's style at its best! This dressing gown would certainly enhance - or be the focal point of - your contemporary or vintage ensemble and would be a fantastic addition to your vintage collection.
