VINTAGE GEORGE DAVID FASHIONS SCARLET MOHAIR COAT - LARGE SIZE
A vintage George David Fashions mohair coat in a gorgeous shade of scarlet.
From Wikipedia and my thanks to them: "Mohair is usually a silk-like fabric or yarn made from the hair of the Angora goat. Both durable and resilient, mohair is notable for its high luster and sheen which has helped give it the nickname the "Diamond Fiber" and is often used in fiber blends to add these qualities to a textile. Mohair takes dye exceptionally well.
Mohair is warm in winter as it has excellent insulating properties, while remaining cool in summer due to its moisture wicking properties. It is durable, naturally elastic, flame resistant and crease resistant. It is considered to be a luxury fiber, like cashmere, angora and silk, and is usually more expensive than most wool that comes from sheep.

The coat is in a gorgeous shade of scarlet and the coat color is much prettier in real life as it is difficult to capture the beautiful shade with a camera. Double breasted with pretty matching scarlet buttons. Beautiful mohair furry texture to the coat. Two angled pockets on the sides. Fully lined with scarlet taffeta.
Perfect with slacks, a skirt, over a dress or jeans when you want to be warm.

We examine each item carefully and note any imperfections, but unless an item is said to be new, please don't expect it to be perfect & even some new items have small imperfections. I will always state in the description if there are any imperfections & I never do repairs but leave them to others who are better able to do them than me as that is not my expertise.
Please remember that unless specified all items have been used and will show varying signs of use or wear. We always list the obvious imperfections to the best of our abilities. However, some slight imperfections that will not show or affect wearing or using the item may slip by or not be considered worth mentioning.
Vintage nightgowns & peignoirs may be delicate so I do not wash them in the machine. I wash them in lukewarm water with Woolite or some other mild soap, then rinse & hang dripping wet in the shower.
Since these are vintage items, a bit of extra care needs to be taken with them so they remain beautiful & I definitely would never put a vintage nightgown or a peignoir in the dryer as it would ruin it.
The items are sold as we find them. We do not dry clean, launder, alter or repair vintage clothing and they should be cleaned or washed upon arrival. Please make your selection carefully & check the measurements as there is no return on clothing or other items.
