Vintage 1930s-40s black velvet swing coat with vibrant plaid taffeta lining. It has a pointed collar, structured shoulders with built-in padding, two hip pockets, and an open fit with no closures. It can also be worn with the sleeves cuffed, as the velvet shell continues inside the lower part of the sleeves. There are a few condition notes, detailed below, but it is still very sturdy for its age and totally wearable.
