Vintage 1930s 40s Dressing Gown Sherlock Holmes Smoking Pipe Red Satin Mens M L

by poppysvintageclothing.com

  • Product Description

This is a fabulous mens vintage dressing gown with a woven pattern consisting of a man in a top hat gesturing with his finger and a smoking calabash pipe, the type favoured by Sherlock Holmes, as well as another billiard style pipe.  The pattern is in a silver grey against a red satin background.  It has a fairly wide shawl collar and has a patch pocket at the left chest and at either side.  It cinches at the waist with a fringed sash belt in matching fabric.  The sleeves have turned cuffs.  The gown is made in a full length and is unlined.

Age: 1930s, maybe early 1940s

Label: Fashion Plate

Material: Probably rayon satin - nice quality with good fall

Sizing:  No size is indicated, and although this should fit a medium to large size, please rely on the following measurements for fit:

Shoulders: 18 1/2” across seam-to-seam

Sleeves: 26” long

Sleeve Inseam: 17” long

Chest: 45”, taken under the arms and depending on overlap

Waist: 44” around, but meant to be cinched

Overall length: 49 1/2“, measured flat

Condition: It is in very good condition except for a some yellowish toned moisture staining to the interior at the lower back (see last four close-up photos), more visible on the interior than the exterior.  On the exterior, the grey pattern demonstrates some yellowing in places, but the red appears to be unaffected.   A good dry cleaner might be able to rectify this, but they would have to be familiar with older fabrics.  Otherwise, this dressing gown presents itself very well.

This is a fabulous example of a vintage men’s dressing gown, wonderful Sherlock Holmes-like smoking pattern - striking colour!
