Vintage Baumler Mens Overcoat Mohair Wool Blend Coat Topcoat Size M L
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a pre-owned mens mohair and wool coat made in Canada under license to Baumler, which is a German manufacturer known for using quality fabrics. The coat has a small squared collar, does up with two visible buttons at the neck and four hidden buttons down the front, relaxed shoulders, vertical side pockets, adjustable belted cuffs and a matching sash belt. The coat is lined in a striped satin rayon fabric. There are two inner pockets built into the lining and a zippered pocket built into the interior fabric. The fabric is beautifully woven in a chevron design in a blend of 50% mohair, 35% virgin wool and 15% polyamide (for strength). The fabric has a beautiful finish - please view the extreme close-up photo.
Label: Baumler Men’s Fashion. I think that this coat may date to the 1990s.
Sizing: The coat is sized as a European size 50, which should fit a US size 40, but it may fit a slightly larger size. The coat fit my husband who normally fits a 42, and the shoulders were a little wide for him. Please rely on the following measurements for fit, taking the style of the coat, which is wide across the top, and the thickness of the fabric into account as well as whether you may want to wear a suit jacket underneath:
Shoulders: 20” across, from one shoulder/sleeve seam to the other shoulder/sleeve seam
Sleeves: 25 1/2” from the shoulder seam
Sleeve Inseam: 19 1/2”
Chest: 52” around, taken under the arms
Waist: 50” around, meant to be cinched with the sash belt
Hips: 50” around
Length: 47 1/2”, measured flat
Condition: It is in very good condition with no signs of wear, tear, stains or odours - really, I don’t think that this coat saw much use.
This is a nice quality coat - excellent mohair and wool blended fabric……
