This pretty semi-cropped double-breasted jacket from the 80s is labeled Liz Claiborne Collection, and is made of a super soft rayon-linen blend hounds-tooth plaid that is beautifully matched.
Design elements include:
Faux bound pockets
2 piece sleeve with triple buttons at the sleeve hems
Princess seaming front and back give this a very flattering V shape, it reminds us of some of the terrific office wear and jackets worn in the 1988 movie "Working Girl".
Labeled a size 8, this measures:
17” shoulder point to shoulder point
Length from center back of the neck to the hem is 24"
Sleeve length from shoulder point to sleeve hem: 24"
Underarm to sleeve hem: 16.5"
38” around the hem
Fiber content: 78% rayon, 22% linen
Fully lined in a beautiful menswear striped satin.
Great colorway of black and white with pale yellow looks fabulous over all black, or all white, or really dramatic over all yellow, if you dare! Best bet? accessorize with yellow for a real POP of color with this!
Condition: Excellent. No flaws. Just back from the dry-cleaners and ready to wear.
