40s Vintage Women's Jacket Deco Details Navy Blue Pinstripe Large to Extra Large

$ 70.00 Sale Save

Deceptively simple with clean deco lines, enhanced by the subtle pinstripe! Gently fitted with princess style seaming that goes geometric above the bust, including a stylized wing that gives the illusion of a squared off padded shoulder without any pads. Collarless around the neck with dropped notched lapels. Horizontal welted handwarmer pockets.

SIZE: No size label. I wear a modern size 12 and the jacket feels a little oversized to me.

FABRIC/COLORS: Lightweight wool suiting, dark navy blue with a very narrow white pinstripe. Lined in black satin.

TAG: Ber-Sell Original Modes - The logo monogram is B & W though. An additional tag has a seal for "This article Berlou moth proofed, 5 year guarantee". I found some archived sources mentioning the Berlou method dating back to the mid 1930s.

CLOSURES: Two self fabric ringed buttons with bound buttonholes.

CONDITION: No stains, holes, tears or other issues noted on the outer jacket. There is some reddish color turn to the lining under the arms (no odor). I have repaired a section of lining hem that had come loose.
