Smart little lightweight 40s wool jacket in a fine plaid check pattern of cream, yellow, black and some fine lines of blue. Contrasting plain black shoulder design in front with decorative faux pocket flaps above the bust. Small slot pockets to the hip. High collarless neckline. Jacket fastens with three small covered buttons to the neck and has a matching black belt to cinch in the waist. Lined in black rayon. Tailored by Kipness.
The jacket is not labeled with a size but fits approx a XS-S. Please refer to the measurements for your best fit and please note that you may need to leave a little bit of room for movement depending on desired fit.
Chest: measures approx 35" closed but would best fit smaller, I would estimate for 32-34"
Waist: approx 28" but would best fit smaller (belt measures 24" on smallest setting and 28" on the loosest - I would estimate this to be a good fit for a 25-26" waist
16 " from shoulder to shoulder
Sleeve: 23" from shoulder to cuff
Sleeve: 17.5" from underarm to cuff
Good condition with some flaws, though none that is veru noticeable when worn.
-Lining is intact except for three holes to the back. Perfectly wearable as is, but could also be patched. Not visible when worn in any way.
-One tiny discreet darn by the top button and one even slighter to the corner of the faux pocket flaps, both photographed.
-Buttons have been replaced but look very much in keeping with the style, so this isn't noticeable.
-Belt has had three repairs where the backing has split. Would be an easy belt to replace as it is plain black.
-One faint mark to the placket, circled in photos.
