Vintage Sea Foam Green Jacket, Forstmann Woolen Company, ca 1940s

$70.00 USD



  • Wool
This wonderful jacket is in very good vintage condition: there are a few light spots on the right front that would most likely come out with a cleaning and a few stitches are needed on the right peplum, on the seam; there are 3 pin holes on the back and 1 on the front which can be gently mended from the back. The lining has been removed but still remains visible in some places.The interior label reads: Forstmann Woolen Company, Passaic, N.J. 100% Virgin Wool.

Please be sure to note the iconic tailoring of the jacket: nipped waist, flared peplum, rounded lapels that echo the rounded detail between the lapels and the shoulders; note, too the sassy belt at the back. There is a shoulder pad on either side.

Approximate measurements:
shoulder to shoulder: 16"
arm pit to arm pit: 17"
waist: 28"
sleeve length: 22"
length: 22"

You are sure to make a grand entrance wearing this topping off your vintage or contemporary ensemble...what a wonderful addition to your vintage clothing collection! This is a fine example of wearable 1940s textile art.
