#958 - c. 1920's Cut Velvet, Wool and Stone Martin Fur Coat! Hollywood Memorabilia. Worn by Julianna Margulies in The Newton Boys film starring Matt McConaughey and Ethan Hawke! I love Hollywood memorabilia and combined with my love of antique clothing, well... I get goosebumps! Let's start with the fact that this coat is extraordinary (even without the Hollywood connection... but that makes it even better!). Now I say cut velvet, but I'm not sure it's not some kind of cut sheared fur... it seems too coarse for velvet... but the movie people call it velvet so I'm following their lead. However they call the fur Mink... and I think that it's Stone Martin on both the collar and cuffs, so... who knows! I do know that the 3rd material is wool and that the button is bakelite. Speaking of the wool, you've gotta look at the close-up photos to see the intricate stitching detailing! It's fabulous! Excellent condition. Now for the Hollywood connection, the coat still has the original tag hanging from the arm with the movie title, scenes and Julianna's name.
