Tye Yourself Up!
1955 Coat Norman Norell The Metropolitan Museum of Art
Why do I like a belted coat so much for the Rack? Anything that nips in at the waist is good and this is an easy solution to coats that fit the rack but have too much volume at the waist, one of my chronic problems.
Current trends dictate that even if the jacket comes with a buckle belt that it be tied, but I think you're fine either way.
And a belted coat for Prudence!
Retro Rack is also on facebook where I post additional images and fashion thoughts.
