Open weave wool coat
Owner of this coat, June Herman [nee Hansel], had previously modelled quite a different El Jay coat for the cover of The Aucklander magazine in July 1950. She recalls going to the El Jay showroom in Anzac Avenue to be fitted by Gus Fisher. She went on to do some modelling in Sydney before returning to live in New Zealand.
