Acquisitions: Morning Coat

Two weeks ago a very kind gentleman gave me a 1914 morning coat made in newcastle. The gentleman said he got the coat in the 1960s when he traded a Harris Tweed jacket for
 it in the middle of a street in London.

Cuff with hand stitching around the edge.

Close up of button.

Sleeve lining.

Chest quilting.

  1. What a beautiful gift! I'm sure that person was inspired by your passion :) Is there more of a story to share about receiving this coat?
