Rare: Vintage, slim cut ladies' frock coat, 32-33" (long) VTR769


This is a very rare, slim-fitting vintage frock coat in a 32-33" size.

Sadly we do not know the maker but it's beautifully tailored, and carries lovely detailing including silk lining in the sleeves, working cuff buttons and button-hole.

We rarely see vintage coats in the frock style (with a seamed waist), and very rarely in a genuine 32-33" bust.

This also has a slim-fitting 30" waist so it will suit a slender lady.

It has a lovely length of 28 1/2".

It's a heavy Melton wool, with a cotton tattersall lining to the upper body, silk lining in the sleeves and a charcoal wool skirt lining.


- 3-button front

- single vent to the rear

- one outside ticket pocket (the lining in the pocket is torn so it will need repair if to be used)

- two large button-fastening ticket pockets

Condition report: It's in excellent condition. The lining of the ticket pocket needs repair. The buttons need updating (we will likely do this), and there are some sections of the weatherproof skirt lining which need re-stitching.


It measures 16 1/2" across the bust when laid flat

28 1/2" in length from bottom of collar to hem which is long for this bust size

Waist 30" (15" across the narrowest part of waist when buttoned and laid flat)

Outside sleeve measures 21" with 2 1/2" of hem available

Shoulder to shoulder 16"
