Vintage 1950s Faux Fur Leopard Cheetah Swing Coat Featured At Metro Retro Vintage

Warm Up In This Retro Faux Leopard Swing Coat

I could swear my mom owned this very cool jacket I spotted on Metro Retro Vintage , BTW very clever name for an online vintage clothing store on Etsy.com. Metro Retro Vintage is also a member of my site I Antique Online.com

Here is how Metro Retro Vintage describes this wonderful faux leopard jacket:

1950's Faux Leopard Jacket

You’ll love swinging about town in this cool and rockin' vintage 50's faux leopard print swing coat. Throw on a pair of black pencil pants and some cat-eye glasses, and you’re ready to go!

The posh rockabilly style coat is animal-free and comprised of a synthetic "fur" in a leopard spotted pattern, in colors of golden orange/brown color with black and beige.

It has a notched bib style collar, long sleeves, oversized brown buttons and round patch pockets.

The neat coat has a good solid weight, and is fully lined in a brown satin fabric with small patch of red on the bottom inside lining (see close up pic) – however this is hidden inside the coat and neither shows nor detract.

Wonderful condition, with fur vibrant and intact.

*Remember – bulky coats may add an inch or more on the outside, but fit smaller within, so please note the following measurements and make a generous allowance for ease.

Bust – 42 inches
Waist – 42 inches
Hips – 42 inches
Length – 28 inches
