Fabulous 1950s H.B. Burnett Faux Fur Leopard Swing Car Coat

The H. B. Burnett made some of the best faux fur pieces and I am always on the look out to snag one. They were loved and worn so to find one in as mint condition as this one is a treat. It is very well made and the faux fur is of very high quality for its time period. The leopard print has a fabulous sense of depth and texture and I love that the colors are a real tawny soft blend rather then the stronger, more orange toned pieces you often see. It fabric gives the coat just enough weight so that the lines are held perfectly when it is on but doesn't make it feel heavy or unwieldy. The leopard print acts like a neutral in that you can pair it with pretty much anything and any color. It closes with a double row of buttons down the front and the cut through the body is more to the full side like a traditional car coat feel of the time period with that touch of the earlier swing coat in the lines. I love the wrap over collar and flap pocket detailing on each hip. It flares out as it reaches the hem and is quite fabulous. Excellent condition
