Norman Norell was an iconic and sadly short lived American fashion designer. His tailoring skills are unparalleled, and each section of this blazer proves it's true. It comes in unworn condition, clean and perfect. The cut and material will never go out of style. The body of the jacket is made from six separate pieces, two darts, and the sleeves are made out of two pieces each. The jacket's closure is one button about 7.5 Inches above the Hemline and it even has a welted buttonhole made by hand. The lining is of course handsewn to the jacket and has no stains or holes, it is just as intricately tailored as the exterior of the jacket. The jacket is shown on a size 4/6 mannequin and fits it snuggly. I estimate the size to be about a 4, or just under that size. When reviewing the measurements please remember you will be wearing something underneath the jacket and allow for that room.
In real life the cream color of the fabric has a very slight heathered coloring . The Norman Norell label is stitched into the jacket, it has a slight tear in it. Below is the tag for the store it was originally sold in, the Tribout shop in John Wanamaker in Philadelphia
