This piece was made in the 1940's and carries the coveted CC41 label on the inner.
Beautifully tailored it is made from medium weight smooth wool in dark brown and has a fine brown pinstripe. Smart detailing it is double breasted, has shoulder pads, to give the iconic shape of the era, three pockets and is fully lined.
Looks great worn open in a more casual style but also looks really smart fastened and worn with high-waisted trousers or a skirt.
This will best fit a 36"/37" bust but to ensure it will fit you properly, please compare the measurements below to a similar piece you already own. All measurements taken on the outside of the piece.
Flat bust 20" in front and 18" in back
Flat waist 16"
Shoulders between sleeves 14.5"
Underarm sleeve length 15.5"
Good/very good with some minor points to note;
- light foxing on the lining
- underarm lining staining
- someone moved the buttons at some point to make the piece smaller - there are the faintest marks on the outer but the main marks showing this was done are on the inner
