    Hi, y'all. I'm sort of at a loss with this one. Is it a robe with a specific purpose/use/cultural history? (It reminds me of a choir robe) Or just a gorgeous jacket? And, when/where is it from?

    Not sure why, but something about it makes me feel like I should post it here to try to get some more info.

    Things to note:
    --has pockets
    --open front
    --very stiff outer fabric
    --see photos for topstitched and interior construction details!


    Any information/ideas are much appreciated! Thanks so much!

    Thanks for the help! I probably would have just thought "swing coat" if not for the color combo & rows of top stitching, which make it seem more choir robe-like. =D
