Please note: the color of this sport coat is like that in photo #1 -

This handsome sport coat is in excellent vintage condition: there is a barely discernible spot on the right front that I was unable to capture with my camera.

Be sure to note the 6" long banded pocket at each hip; the right pocket has a change pouch inside. Note, too, the 4" long asymmetrical pocket on the left chest with its 1" band. Please note, as well, the iconic pointed lapels; with the boutonniere slit on the left side. There is an interior slit pocket on right side under which is the label of the store from which the coat was purchased (see last photo).

Invented in 1912 by Goodall in Sanford, Maine, the fabric used for Palm Beach fabric had undergone very little change until 1953 when the company started using a mix of linen, cotton and rayon; this mix breathed in warm weather and did not wrinkle as easily as pure linen suits. All Palm Beach clothing is washable.

Approximate measurements -
shoulder to shoulder: 17"
armpit to armpit: 19"
back length: 32"
sleeve length: 24"

Sure to enhance and/or be the focal point of your contemporary or vintage ensemble, this would make a wonderful addition to your vintage clothing collection; it is a fine example of wearable 1940s textile art and style.

Palm Beach Fabric was invented in 1912 by Goodall in Sanford, Maine and underwent very little changes until 1953 and on this suit it was comprised of Linen, Cotton, and Rayon, so not only did it breath in warm weather, it also stood the test of time and didnt wrinkle as easily, unlike pure linen suits.
