Beautiful tapestry velvet coat from Henri Bendel, New York in a perfect autumnal palette. Olive green background with a sort of Aztec/South Western motif in blend of copper, gold, russet and evergreen. Single breasted with three beautiful wood buttons. Each cuff has a trio of matching wood buttons in smaller size. Flap pockets can also be tucked in for a slit pocket effect. Dramatic wide lapels. In the style and cut of a traditional riding jacket but without the slit/pleat. Has the weight of a coat more than a blazer, could be worn either way. Fully lined in deep olive green silk rayon fabric. While tapestries and velvets are currently all the rage, this classic coat will always be in good taste.
