An original British made navy blue pinstriped three button Jacket dating from the 1940s.
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 is made from a typically heavy wool and is fully canvased which gives it a stiff, strong feel.
The jacket will suit around a 36" chest depending on desired fit and when laid flat measures -
Chest - 20 1/2"
Inside arm - 16 3/4"
Outside arm - 24 1/4"
Length - 30"
Shoulders - 17"
The jacket is in excellent condition for its age and it is still very wearable. There are some signs of wear and age but overall it is in very good condition with just one small hole to the cuff as detailed in pictures 4 and 5. Please study the pictures and bear in mind that this is a pre-worn vintage item of around 80 years old which may have small issues commensurate with age.
A nice original 1940s jacket which would look great paired with grey flannels as a sports jacket!
