    I have an M.K. Loo overcoat from the 50s also. My Aunt gave it to me, but it is a little too small for me to wear. It is a beautifully custom handcrafted fuschia tweed, with a fuschia lining that has a detailed quilted border. I’m not describing it very well, but it is really lovely.
    I guess I don’t know why I’m telling you this except that I haven’t seen the name M.K Loo anywhere else.
