Vintage Chocolate Brown Mouton Swing Coat, ca 1940s

$275.00 USD



  • Faille
  • Mouton
This opulent coat is in excellent vintage condition: I can find no flaws other than a needed mend in the seam of the interior of the left pocket. The hide is supple and luxuriant. There is a fur hook and eye set just under the collar and 2 more about 1/2 the way down the front. The interior is lined with a matching brown faille.

Mouton fur is actually sheepskin that has been sheered to resemble beaver or seal; "mouton" is French for "sheep." This fur is extremely warm and durable. Please be sure to note the iconic rounded collar and the 4" wide cuff at the end of each wide sleeve. There is a deep side slit pocket on each side.

Approximate measurements
shoulder to shoulder: 16"
arm pit to arm pit: 19"
hips: 40"
sleeve length: 24 1/2"
length: 41"

This would make a wonderful addition to your vintage clothing collection; it is a fine example of wearable 1940s textile art.
