Vintage 1960s Black Mod Swing Coat NWT NOS New With Tags Empire Modes

Fantastic black swing coat from the 1960s, 1961 to be exact as it still retains all its original tags and one of them conveniently has the date on it which is faded but still barely legible. This is a black nubby material with cuffed sleeves and lined in an amazing white and black abstract floral pattern. Lining is rayon, exterior is a mix of cotton, acetate and rayon. There are side pockets and wider 3/4 sleeves. Label says serval things. One says empire Modes, which I believe is the designer. Anther says Korvettes, which I believe is the shop it was sold at. Then there are fabric contents and prices ( it cost $7.90 in 1961!and styles etc...The labels are as much fun as the coat itself. This is a lighter weight coat, more for fall, or spring, not the dead of winter if you live In a cold climate. Says its a small but I think a smaller medium would be fine as well.

Excellent vintage condition. Yep, its new, but at one point during its lifetime something happened and a few holes were the result. They almost look like pulls, like the fabric was pulled and subsequently pulled away from itself. There are only a couple of these, the largest about half an inch, and they run horizontal so follow the line of the texture of the fabric. This makes me suspect that some clever stitching would make them essentially disappear.

Measurements when lying flat. Doubled at bust, waist and hip
this is an open front so theres some play to these measurements.
Shoulder to shoulder: 16"
Armpit to armpit across bust: 40"
Waist: free
Shoulder to bottom hem: 40"

Please note: These are vintage, preworn and/or preloved items. I do my utmost best to list any issues, but signs of wear should be expected, and there are occasionally small things I won't deem worthy of note. Please feel free to send me a missive with any questions. I'm truly happy to help in any way possible and I'm always up for a chat.
