Vintage Faux Fur Coat Reversible with Red & Green Leaf Pattern Ladies Size M
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a vintage faux fur coat made in Canada by Shiff. The coat features a leaf print in red and green against a black background. The coat is reversible - you can wear it with the faux fur on the exterior or with the plain black fabric on the exterior. It has rounded raglan style sleeves and a shawl collar that can be worn either up or down (see photos). It does up with two buttons at the waist. There is a pocket built into either side.
Age: most likely 1980s
Label: Shiff Montreal Canada Made in Canada (inside pocket because the coat is reversible). Shiff had roots dating to 1919 when Salomon Shiff, a recent immigrant, started his clothing business in Montreal. Shiff closed during the late 1990s
Fabric label: 100% Nylon / 100% Modacrylic with 100% Polyester backing
Sizing: Size 9/10 (medium) is indicated, but please rely on the following measurements for fit, taking the thickness of fabric into account:
Sleeves: 28” long from the neck seam with the cuff turned, 31” long from the neck seam with the cuff unturned
Sleeve Inseam: 17” with the cuff turned
Bust: 50” around, taken under the arms
Waist: 46” around
Overall length: 37"
It is in very good condition with no pronounced wear, tear, staining or odor. The coat looks like it saw little use and was well stored over the years. I have not cleaned it, but it appears clean and ready to use.
This is a wonderful 80s period faux fur coat - the pattern pops against the black background and you can reverse the coat if there is precipitation….
