Vintage Canada Majestic Mink Coat with Belt Palomino Tan White Size S / M
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This product is unavailable
This is a vintage mink coat made in a very attractive off-white colour, leaning towards tan - I think that this colour may be called “Palomino”. The coat has a matching mink fur belt that has a large brass buckle, but wearing the belt is optional as the coat is tailored to accentuate the waist in any case. The coat is made in a classic style with a below the knee length. There is a satin lined pocket built into either side. It has a high set notched collar that can be worn either down with an open neckline, up or closed as it has a hook and loop at the neckline (see photos for different poses). It is lined in cream white satin fabric. It has a large interlocked “LL” monogram on the interior, but this is stylized to almost look like a design, so shouldn’t bother anyone, but could be easily removed if desired.
Label: Canada Majestic Mink. Canada Majestic Mink is a trademark of the Canadian Mink Breeders Association and a sign of quality fur having been used to make this coat.
Retailer label: Simpson’s Fur Salon. Simpson’s was a good quality Montreal department store. In order to adhere to Canada’s 1972 bilingualism law, Simpson’s dropped the apostrophe from its name to become “Simpsons”. Because the name on the label has the apostrophe, this coat dates prior to 1972.
Sizing: No size is indicated, but this should fit a small to smaller medium size - please rely on the following exterior measurements for fit, taking the thickness of the fur into account (compare measurements with a similar fur coat that you presently own or to your own body measurements, taking the cut of the garment into account):
Shoulders: 18”, estimated, due to raglan sleeve
Sleeves: 28” from the collar seam
Sleeve inseam: 19”
Bust: 38” around, taken under the arms
Waist: 32” around uncinched by the belt
Hips: 36” around
Overall length: 41”, measured flat
Condition: It is in very good condition with no splits, matting or wear - the fur is fresh and strong and has very good glaze. This coat looks to have seen very little use and has been well cared for over the years.
Excellent quality mink coat in a very attractive color....years of use left in this coat with proper care!
