Meet the "Silver Trumpeter" by Hart, Schaffner & Marx.
You read that right, 100% cashmere.
From Finney Woods Men's Shop in Haddonfeild.
The cut, label and two button cuffs date this coat firmly in the early 1960's.
I don't watch Mad Men like I know a lot of you do, but that coat is awfully Don Draper, don't you think.
The best thing about thrift stores is when they keep the 'good stuff' behind the counter because of its $20 price tag, and all day long people become incensed that they could have the nerve to charge so much for a coat. Until someone like me finds it and has to contain himself so as not to let on what kind of stealing it really is to pay so little for something so nice.
Everything's relative, I guess.
