Vintage 1950s Reversible Silk Faille Jacket Black and White Ladies Size L
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a wonderful 1950s era outer jacket made of a “faille” silk fabric, a type of thin grosgrain finished silk. The jacket is reversible so can be worn showing mostly black with off-white turned cuffs and collar or worn on the opposite side, showing mostly off-white with black collar and cuffs. The off-white colour is in a cream white tone. The jacket is made with a shawl lapel and cut wide to fit loosely. It has raglan type sleeves with turned cuffs - very stylish!
Sizing: No size is indicated, and although this should fit a large size, please note the following measurements for fit, taking into account the style of the jacket:
Sleeves: 28” from the neck opening
Sleeve inseam: 15”
Bust: 50” around, taken under the underarm - note that this appears large due to the raglan sleeve - should fit loosely
Bottom: 46” around, again, should fit loosely
Length: 23 1/2” measured flat
Condition: It is in very condition with no wear, tear, stains or odour. This jacket looks to have seen little use and has been well cared for over the years.
This is a very stylish outer jacket - excellent quality 50s fashion!
