Eldridge/Harry Rothman polo coat

I picked up a camel hair polo coat today with a tag (below) which reads:
distributed by
Harry Rothman
Fifth Avenue
Hand Tailored

It feels canvased to me. Anybody know anything about either Eldridge or Harry Rothman?

I'll post pics of the coat later when I have a little more time.

Hi, I'm a little late to the thread grandfather was Harry Rothman. While I don't know anything really about the exact coat, most if not all of the clothes in the store were sold with his own label. He would get the post-season clothes from the big guys and resell them at a discounted price. Eldridge was a street that he liked as a child. That's where the inspiration for the name came from.

That being said, what size is the coat and would you be willing to part with it?
I have sent a message to him as well. This was very interesting for me as well a there is unfortunately very little info out there about his store which was pretty big at the time. 2 of my cousins have opened a clothing store with the name, but it is not the same.
