Nice 1970s Vintage Mens Gray & White Houndstooth Overcoat from The Men's Store at SEARS. The coat features awesome super wide notched lapels. There are three large black plastic buttons up the front, one under the collar and one on each cuff. In addition, there are two extra buttons sewn into interior lining. The coat is made of a thick but lightweight knit fabric. The fabric has a bold houndstooth design in gray and white throughout. The coat is fully lined in a silky black nylon taffeta lining. It appears that there was a zip out winter lining at one time which is no longer present. The coat features two large exterior side pockets and a large single center vent on back for superior ease of movement. The coat is in very nice shape for its age! A handsome mens vintage overcoat!
