An original British made Black Lounge Jacket made by 'Burton' in the 1930s.
This style of jacket was extremely popular in the Edwardian and interwar period. Often referred to as a stroller jacket, this style was seen as a more casual alternative to full morning dress and was popular with professionals working in the town and city for many years. The jacket is cut in a typically 1930s style with a two button front and peaked lapel. Three buttons are fitted at each cuff and there are two flapped pockets to the lower portion of the jacket. The jacket is cut short in the body and features no rear vent which are again typical traits of this era. The cloth is a dark black coloured wool which features a very subtle herringbone stripe pattern.
The interior of the jacket is fully lined and features a single interior pocket and a hanging loop to the collar. Below the pocket the classic silver on black 'Burton The Tailor of Taste' label is present and inside the pocket is a card label with various details on it.
The jacket will suit around a 36" chest depending on desired fit and when laid flat measures -
Chest - 20"
Inside arm - 17 1/4"
Outside arm - 24"
Length at back - 27"
Shoulders - 17 1/2"
The jacket is in good condition for its age and it is still very wearable. There are some light marks to the front which aren't overly noticeable and some limited signs of wear but overall it is in good condition. Please study the pictures before purchasing and bear in mind that this is a vintage, pre-owned item which may have small issues commensurate with age.
A great looking vintage stroller jacket!
