The Movie Star Coat
You know this coat.
The one you wrap yourself in when you slip into Shubert Alley on the way to your dressing room.
Or the Polo Lounge at the Beverly Hills Hotel.
The one that Hayworth and Gardner wore.
This coat isn't subtle, but that's why you'll love it.
Comes from the period when the French fashion houses reopened and put an exclamation point on the hourglass cut.
Call it 'refined decadence.'
Call it sexy.
The Movie Star Coat (No. 2888). The wrap style and self-tie belt will make you feel safe, warm, and like a million bucks. (Still worth something, even after inflation.)
Oversized lapels and collar. Plush wool and cashmere blend. Pick-stitching along the collar and front edges. All staples of the era.
Try flipping the collar up if you really feel like causing a stir (and you will). Imported.
