Antique Edwardian Walking Suit Jacket Navy Blue Wool Size M


Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing

This is a wonderful late to post Edwardian era ladies walking suit jacket.  This walking suit jacket has an elongated silhouette that accents the figure.  It is made with squared lapels and wrist length split cuff sleeves.  It closes with a single button and two ties, each decorated with a matching button.  There is a large patch pocket at either front side bottom.  There are decorative seams at the upper back and emanating out from the pockets.  This walking suit jacket was once lined but the lining was removed except for the upper back - note that the edge is unfinished and interior seams are exposed.

Color: Dark navy blue

Material: Wool twill

Sizing: No size is indicated on this walking suit jacket, and although it should fit a medium size, please rely on the following measurements for fit, either comparing them to another jacket that you may own or your body measurements, allowing at least 1” less for fit (3”-4” at the chest):

Shoulders: 15 1/2” across seam-to-seam

Sleeves: 22” long

Sleeve Inseam: 16” long

Bust: 40” around, taken under the arms

Waist: 40” around, uncinched by belt, meant to be cinched

Hips:  44”

Overall length: 30" measured flat

Condition:  This walking suit jacket is in very good condition with the exception of the missing lining.  In addition, the buttons are missing from the cuffs and someone stitched the left cuff only rather than affixing a button, but this can be reversed.  I noticed one tiny fray on the collar (see last close-up photo). Also, because the lining was removed, the collar could use a stitching at the back so as to fold properly.  Otherwise, this walking suit jacket presents itself very well.  Replacing the lining is optional, but by adding a button at either cuff and stitching the back collar, this will be ready to wear.

This walking suit jacket features wonderful Edwardian era style.  Hard to find, sure to be noticed!
