This is a vintage 1940s era suit jacket featuring a navy blue gabardine wool. The jacket has a large capelet collar which is beaded. Padded shoulders, long sleeves and does up at the front with four plastic buttons. The collar is decorated with iridescent blue beading. The pockets are very well made. The jacket is lined in blue satin fabric. There is no label.
Sizing: No size is indicated, but this should fit a medium. Please note the following measurements, all given in inches. Taking the tailored style of the suit jacket into account:
Sleeves: 24 1/2
Sleeve Inseam: 17
Overall length: 25 1/2
Condition: It is in very good condition. No stains or odors. There are two very tiny pinholes, one on the back right hand side and the other on the left lower sleeve, see last two photos There are also a couple of very hard to see wear spots to the wool on the front of the jacket.
This is a wonderful period suit jacket with attractive style and beaded decoration - these look great paired with jeans or a flowing pair of crepe or silk trousers - pairing the old with the new.
