"Skirt" of coat has four overlapping tiers of monkey fur. Velvet on back of coat has rows of pintucked detail. Long, tight-fitting sleeves have slit cuffs. Coat has two exterior pockets. Fully lined in bright red satin. Please note that this vintage fur is from the Colobus guereza monkey, which is not endangered and is listed on the IUCN as a species of "Least Concern".
