$ 219.00This is a magnificent full length opera coat from about the 1940s or 50s in black silk velvet. Incredible shaped collar! Slightly puffed shoulders, though no shoulder pads. Simple clean lines with no front closure. Fully lined in black satin. Label reads: Bergdorf Goodman Fifth Avenue at 58th Street. Small to smaller medium I'd say.
$ 79.00Deep espresso brown lightly boucled two piece suit circa the 1940s, maybe 50s. The jacket is really the star here. It has these fantastic buttons! The sleeves are not quite full length, but a bit longer than 3/4. The bottom hem in front has a slits at either hip. Shoulder pads. Its kind of a shorter, more boxy shape, that makes me think 60s, but the woman I got it from said her mother wore it well before then and there are definitely things about it that make me think she's right. The skirt is A line, has several darts at the waist for a nice shape, and a metal zipper at the side. Both jacket and skirt are lined in what feels like rayon. The body is probably wool. Medium size, I'd say. There are two labels. The designer ones read "Friedmont" and are in both jacket and skirt. Then there is an additional one for the store it was sold at, reads: "Housemans, Grand Rapids".
$ 116.00Fantastic hip length opera coat from the 1940s in lush black velvet. Look at the beautiful gathered sleeve cuffs! Lovely rounded collar and three velvet covered buttons. Open from about the ribcage down. Large shoulders pads with the velvet pleated round them to the back. Fully lined in lovely gold silk ( or maybe a silk or rayon blend, its very fine). No label. Medium to large size I'd say.
$ 45.00Classy tailored camel colored jacket. Has a rounded lapel, and five pearlized buttons up the front, padded shoulders. The sleeve cuffs are folded up and have a cute rounded corner detail. There are pockets at either hip, though they are open on the interior of the jacket so I wouldn't plan on using them unless you want to stitch up the open part inside. Nipped in tailored waist. Small size, I'd say. Label reads: "Weathervane tailored by Handmacher in a Celanese acetate fabric".
