Women's Cropped Cream Leather Jacket Vintage 90s Lacing Detail Extra Small VFG Hoban North Beach
A great little leather jacket, probably 1990s, from North Beach Leather. The jacket is semi-cropped, angling down into a subtle vee at center front, hinting at a corset look. It is shaped with an angular version of princess seaming - shoulders are lightly padded, to enhance the nipwaist look. The collar is oversized, and stops at the top of the vee-neck. The fitted lines of the jacket front are set off by woven "ladders" of narrow leather stripes in a braided pattern.
SIZE: Labeled size 2
|Length from back of neck
FABRIC/COLORS: The outer is a soft supple cream colored leather. Lining is satin acetate.
TAGS: Michael Hoban, North Beach Leather, made in China
CLOSURES: The jacket closes with a substantial metal Riri zipper up the front.
CONDITION: There is subtle wear-related discoloration, some "patina" and some of it a decrease in surface color. It is most noticeable along the bottom edge of the right sleeve - see closeup. There are a few grayish marks with a tiny surface nick at the right elbow - see second closeup. And lastly, I see a small mark near the lower zipper that looks like it came from a ballpoint pen - see third closeup. No other issues noted.
