This evening or dinner jacket is made in Italy from beautiful 100% cotton velvet which is black, but because of a pattern in the material which resembles a gray flower with a center dot of teal it looks lighter than just plain black. There are more of the teal dots done in vertical lines. This richly patterned velvet virtually gives the velvet an attractive sheen. The lapels are narrow and made from black satin. There are three pockets on the outside of the jacket....a handkerchief pocket and two more pockets....one on each side of the front panel of the jacket. The coat is fully lined with a black synthetic material and there are two interior breast pockets, one with a button and one without. The sleeves are long and have a flap detail with a single button at the cuff. There are two pleats at the back of the coat, one on each side. Shoulder pads are present in this jacket. The coat closes with a single button. This coat would be marvelous for any holiday party or ritzy evening affair.....for a gentleman, or, perhaps the lady who prefers the "Boyfriend" style jacket.
Condition: Very Good
The material in this jacket is just so interesting and it's in wonderful condition. The interior of the collar has one very faint mark which could easily be steamed when professionally cleaned the next time.....very, very faint and virtually unseen when being worn. The buttonhole that closes the front of the jacket has some minor fraying on one side. The coat lining is a little wrinkled. The white Versace label on the interior of the coat has a red spot present....please see the photo which shows this label.
Label: Gianni Versace, Made in Italy
There is a paper label (lower part of this label is missing) on the inside of the buttoned interior breast pocket, as well as a care and contents label.
