How was your Saturday? I had a more relaxed day but I stayed busy!
Today I want to talk about Five coats styles from the 1940's that shape the coats we see today.
1. Wool Trench Coat- First style of coat heavy enough to protect from the rain.
2. Swagger Coat- A longer version of the box coat. aps style. The Swagger coat is longer to cover clothing.
3.Polo Box Coat- Polo Box coats are lightweight and do not have a clouser. They are nice coats to layer under the long coats, or wear on a cool night.
4.Wrap Coat- A lightweight coat made with smaller pockets, and a tie to wrap around instead of buttons or a zipper closure.
5. Rain Coat- After pinning wool to coats,making wool coats, or adding oils to coats; coat designers came out with the rubber in the 1940's for raincoats. They didn't last as long as they do now, but they were a work in progress that has changed into amazing coats to protect you from the rain and last long now.
Thank you for all the support and for reading my blogmas.
