This delightful garment could be worn by a man as a smoking jacket or by a woman as a dressy jacket over a dress, skirt, or slacks. The brocade fabric has an oriental design done in light natural tones of white, olive, taupe and a touch of gold. The rich burgundy shawl collar, cuffs and pocket details are edged with a braided rope detail of burgundy, navy and cream. The jacket is in very fine vintage condition, including the lining and pockets and all seams. The only small show of wear is on each of the cuffs at the wrist fold where a small area of the burgundy fabric shows fabric underneath...only visible to the wearer.
The jacket measures approx. 20 inches across from shoulder seam to shoulder seam. The sleeves measure approx. 25 inches from shoulder to wrist. The jacket measures approx. 30 inches from mid-shoulder to the hem. The back waist area of the jacket measures approx. 20 inches across however the front crosses over with approx. 16 inches on each side at the waist. It is a roomy jacket and looks great open or tied at the waist.
This is a gorgeous wearable jacket and will be a nice addition to a vintage clothing.. collectors wardrobe. It would make a wonderful gift for the person that has almost everything. It is full of possibilities...
