An original British made navy blue three button Jacket dating from the 1930s.
This style of jacket was extremely popular in the 1930s and 1940s. It could well have originally been part of a suit but would also likely have been worn with grey flannel trousers or slacks - a very popular casual look during this period. The jacket is cut in a typically 1930s style being short in the body and featuring no rear vent. The single breasted front and notch label are also classic of British jackets from this period as is the full rayon lining.
The jacket will suit around a 35" chest depending on desired fit and when laid flat measures -
Chest - 19 1/2"
Inside arm - 17"
Outside arm - 24"
Length - 28"
Shoulders - 16 1/4"
The jacket is in good condition for its age and it is still very wearable. There are some light marks to the front which can be seen in the pictures and a number of small repairs, mainly to the arms which have been well done and due to the dark colour of the fabric are only noticeable on close inspection. Please study the pictures and bear in mind that this is a pre-worn vintage item of around 80years old which has some flaws and is far from perfect condition.
A nice original pre-war jacket which would look great paired with grey flannels and a sports jacket!
