Your Vintage Pretty for the Day:
A Carmel design...Mandarin length coat of Forstmann wool. Shades of Victory in Allied Tones...
Since this 1944 ad is in black and white, I wonder what the Allied tones were? Khaki? Forstmann was high quality wool, and was advertised heavily. I find a lot of tailored garments with the Forstmann fabric label. They had quite a marketing campaign for a fabric.The kind of publicity one would expect for a designer line.
