Vintage 1960s Mens Overcoat Crombie Scottish Wool Coat Sz M
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a vintage 1960s mens overcoat made under the Crombie Sealskin brand name by Freedman of Montreal Canada. Freedman was founded in 1906 by Lyon Cohen and went on to become one of Montreal’s largest clothing manufacturers - Friedman was the maiden name of his wife. As an aside, Lyon Cohen’s grandson was poet Leonard Cohen, who briefly worked at the company during the 1950s. This vintage 1960s mens overcoat is made of fine quality wool in a navy blue colour. It has high set notched lapels and does up with three buttons at the front. There is a flapped pocket at either side and the sleeves have two buttons at each cuff. It has a 12 1/2” kick vent at the back and this vintage 1960s mens overcoat is half lined in a black satin fabric. It is made in a shorter 1960s knee length (for an average height man)
