Here’s a beautifully made vintage black wool jacket made under the Givenchy Sport label whose style is truly timeless! Made in the late 1970s, this jacket looks just as nice today as when it was first worn by the previous owner. Lots of fine details and quality materials have been incorporated into this fine vintage coat. The lapels are notched, top stitched and slightly generous. In fact, there’s top stitch detail at the bottom of the coat and on the two flap pockets on each side of the front of the jacket, too. There’s a breast pocket on the top left side of the coat. There is a small bit of padding in the shoulders (NOT the huge pads of the 80’s in this coat). Princess seams on the back of the coat and a seam on each side of the front give the coat a nice shape…..not extremely fitted, but not boxy either. The sleeves are long without any cuffs and the coat is completely lined with black satin. The coat closes at the front with two round gold tone buttons with the famous Givenchy logo. At the bottom of each sleeve there are three smaller round buttons that are the same as the ones used to close the coat with the exception of the size. These buttons on the sleeves are purely for decoration and are not functional. This vintage 70s Givenchy Sport wool coat appears to have been worn so very little and will be a “Go To” coat for many years to come!

Please be aware that although the size sewn into this coat indicates Size 16, this coat is definitely NOT Size 16 by today’s standards. I wear Size 8 and this coat is just a bit too large for me, so I would venture to say that this coat is a generous Size 8 leaning towards a Size 10. As always, please refer to the Measurements given below to make sure you get a proper fit.
