This delightful swing jacket from the 50s is made of thickly textrured boucle in colors of yellow with cream and black!
It has a clutch front with wide lapels, flared hem and tapered sleeves.
Two black buttons provide visual accents toward the back of the pockets along the sides of the jacket.
This has bust darts coming down from the neckline seam under the collar.
The label: National Recovery Board, Coat and Suit Industry. Consumer Protection Fair Labor
Lined in yellow faille. There is a repair under the (wearer's) right arm in the lining; this is not visible when worn.
bust: up to 52” (side seam to side seam at underarm, and doubled)
29.5” Long from center back of the neck to the hem.
17” shoulder point to shoulder point
5.5” from neck point to shoulder point
23.5” sleeve length (2 piece sleeve, not just one pc)
10” sleeve hem opening
66” swing at hem (side seam to side seam across the back, and doubled)
Freshly dry cleaned, and ready to wear: the only flaw being the repair mentioned before.
These are fantastic transitional season coats, they look terrific worn layered over thick sweaters with a pencil skirt, or with wide legged trousers. We love it worn over all black, it's very dramatic!
