Original 1950s Men's Single Breasted Jacket by 'George Downie' Size 46

Code: 52542


An original navy blue pinstripe men's suit jacket dating from the 1950s and in a large size. 

This jacket is cut in an earlier style and could almost pass for a 30s or 40s jacket. It features a three button front and pronounced lapel shape, typical of the 1940s and also has no rear vent which is another trait of jackets from an earlier period. It was common for older men to still have the suits cut in the same style they had for many years resulting in later examples such as this turning up. 

The suit jacket is well made and the pinstriping has been matched on the pocket flaps which is always a sign of quality. The cuff features three buttons and is none functioning. 

The jacket is fully lined and features a single interior pocket. The original tailors label is present inside this and bears the makers name of 'Geroge Downie Sons' of Newcastle. The words 'Military and Mufti Tailors' are also present as is the address of 62 Grey Street. 

The jacket is a large size which will fit around a 46" chest depending on desired fit. When laid flat it measures - 

Chest - 26 1/2"
Inside arm - 17 1/4"
Outside arm - 25 3/4"
Shoulders - 19 1/2"
Length - 31 1/2"

The jacket is in good condition as can be seen in the pictures. There are some signs of wear and use which are to be expected with a vintage piece such as this. Please study the pictures before purchasing. 

All in all a nice original jacket in a large size.
