An original 1939 dated British double breast 6x2 Jacket made by 'Brian Walsh'.
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 large, peaked lapels are also typical of the era as is the rayon lining. The materials are heavy, designed for warmth and make the jacket 'hang' very nicely - much better than modern lightweight fabrics!
The jacket will suit around a 36" chest depending on desired fit and when laid flat measures -
Chest - 20"
Inside arm - 17 3/4"
Outside arm - 25"
Length - 28"
Shoulders - 16 1/2"
The jacket is in good condition for its age and it is still very wearable. Overall the jacket is in excellent condition with some signs of wear and age. Please study the pictures and bear in mind that this is a pre-worn vintage item of over 80 years 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 as a sports jacket!
