Here is a fantastic, boldly dramatic two-toned wool twill gabardine band jacket in contrasting colors of red and black with gold braid trim.
The main body of the jacket is red, while the upper collar lapel, epaulets, welt flap pocket tabs and peaked sleeve hems are in black, lending this a decidedly Circus Ring Master look.
Made for: Laura Lakin (37" bust)
This has gold-toned brass buttons with a band lyre on them. One is missing on one of the epaulets.
This is fully lined, and has sweat guards. There are 2 inside pockets.
Label: H. I. Weiman & Sons. Philadelphia
Estimated 1950s vintage, could be earlier.
24" sleeve length
48" around the hem
Halloween or Theater Costume Idea: Ring Master. Lion Tamer: just add: tight black pants, tall boots, stove pipe hat, whip, whistle
