This long coat is made from a shiny silver heavy weight fabric - that's similar to what's used for potholders - that's quilted in a diamond pattern. I've fully lined it with a dark gray taffeta. It has a 36 front 2-way zipper, so you can unzip from the top or bottom. It's a bit tapered at the waist and flares at the bottom for ease while walking when zipped up.It could be worn by a man or a woman. Please feel free to contact me with questions.
