Please note: This listing is for the blazer only.

This tuxedo jacket is in excellent vintage condition: I can find no flaws other than some inconsequential shredding of the partial black silk lining on the right front flap and a reparable torn seam on the left front flap. The sleeves are lined in oatmeal faille satin while the sides are lined in black silk. As the button is on the right side and the button hole on the left, it is most likely that this was originally a (small) man's jacket - now converted for a lucky woman's use!

Please be sure to note the gorgeous faceted black button famed in gold that was added, as shown in photo #4. There is a small watch pocket inside the right pocket. The large. pointed lapels are black faille.

Approximate measurements:
Armpit to armpit: 16"
Shoulder to shoulder: 14"
Hips (flat): 16"
Back length: 26 1/2"
Sleeve length: 23"

What a wonderful example of usable 1940s style at its best! This blazer would certainly enhance - or be the focal point of - your contemporary or vintage ensemble and would be a fantastic addition to your vintage collection.
