1960s Norell Green Wool With Silver Buttons Military Coat

The color is the first thing that catches your eye. In a sea fo black vintage coats this deep green hue is a refreshing change. The double row of textured silver buttons that run down the coat and give it that fantastic military feel are the next thing to catch your eye. Those two things along with the high neat collar, pocket details and chic cut make this Normal Norell couture coat a classic that will never go out of style. Norell was particularly known for his meticulous cut, fit, and use of quality fabrics. He made clothes that lasted and this coat is absolute proof as it looks as fresh now as the day it was made. The cut of this coat is beautiful. It skims the body in a long lean line and is very flattering. It is sharply tailored and the military feel of the cut and detailing is fabulous. Immaculate in its construction, it is a stunning example of why Norell is considered one of the great American couturiers. Excellent condition
