    Hi all,

    I have a question regarding this garment. I was convinced this is an outerwear coat until I saw the label that says Lounging Apparel. Upon some online research, I found out that this company made robes, nightgowns and such but I can't possibly imagine that anyone would lounge on the couch in this. How was this worn? Was it truly a house coat? Also, I think this is late 50s or early 60s. Thoughts on the period?

    Not sure what the fabric is exactly but it is something synthetic, almost like shag but shorter haired.

    I enlarged one of your photos and it looks like an acrylic fleece. Probably a dressing gown rather than coat, although it does look like a coat. Coats of this era are usually wool or a wool mix.
