I’ve begun an exercize of tracing and measuring my clothes to dissect their construction without actually taking a knife to them. Below is a vintage coat by the long defunct Richman Brothers. I like the modest fake fur collar and the rectangular double pockets. I am guessing from the label that it was made after 1980, but could very well be earlier.

via Vintage Fashion Guild:

Richman Brothers was established in 1877 in Portsmouth, Ohio. Self-described as “The World’s Greatest Clothing Factory,” by 1928 the company had 31 menswear stores in 30 cities. They also sold their suits and tuxedos by mail. Woolworth’s bought the Richman Brothers company in 1969 and closed its 260 stores in 1992 after an unsuccessful attempt to sell the subsidiary.
