    Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!

    I’m hoping you might be willing to weigh in on whether or not you think this coat dates from the 40s or 50s. It’s a lovely coat – robin’s egg blue with textured gray stripes, shawl collar, slightly flared sleeves, double welt pockets, underarm gussets, terrific mitering, clutch style. I was leaning toward the early 50s, but the other label I've seen online for a Continental coat that's styled by De Groot is clearly a more recent label, leaving me to opt for an earlier 40s date for the coat. Any ideas?

    Many thanks for your time,

    Jennifer

    Thank you, Mary Jane! Sadly it has a few little moth dings, but these are inconspicuous enough to still let the coat shine through.
