This boxy 1960s short coat or jacket combine faux black curly lamb with a real mink collar in a natural shade of warm brown. The versatile jacket is fancy enough to wear for evening, but would also look lovely over casual attire, for everyday wear. The hip-length jacket is slightly flared from bust to hem, and the bracelet-length sleeves are slightly flared, also. It has 2 patch pockets just above the hem and fastens in front with 3 pretty, floral-design black plastic buttons. The mink collar can be worn 2 ways, both shown: with the 2 covered fur hooks attached to it in front either unfastened or fastened at the neck, which changes the shape of the collar. The faux curly lamb is almost as heavy as real fur, although not quite as warm, and lined with acetate satin. The jacket is designed with a boxy, moderately loose fit in mind, as reflected in the measurements. It fits me pretty well (size 6 petite). The smallest area is at the shoulders and upper arms, while the body of the coat is a bit more loose-fitting. I estimate that it will be best for approximately a modern size 4 to 8, depending on what you choose to wear underneath it. It is in excellent condition, appearing barely worn, if at all.
