This is a 1960s cashmere overcoat overcoat dated to April 13th, 1965 on the tailor’s label.  This this 1960s cashmere overcoat was custom tailored in Lisbon, Portugal. The fabric is extremely soft, and although there is no content label, I am 99% sure that this is pure cashmere in a navy blue colour.  This 1960s cashmere overcoat is made in a classic style with higher set fairly wide notched lapels, has a six button double breasted front, padded shoulders, flapped side pockets, and a 17” kick vent.  It has a matching fabric belt and is fully lined in black satin rayon and is beautifully stitched and finished.

Label:  Santos & Nascimento Lisboa Av. Liberdade, 177

Condition:  This 1960s cashmere overcoatis in very good condition - it’s obvious that it saw very little use.  It is very clean and has a nice finish with no noted wear spots, tear, soiling, staining or odour.  The only issue is that the lining to the left armpit needs a few stitches, very minor (see last close-up photo). 

This is a wonderful vintage 1960s cashmere overcoat - nice custom tailored quality in a beautiful fabric….
