Vintage 60s Uniform Blazer Jacket Red & Green 1963
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a striking vintage 60s mens uniform jacket or blazer in red with green trim! It looks to me like something that an usher would have worn. It has notched lapels and does up with two brass buttons at the front. There is a patch pocket at either side and a pocket at the left chest. The pockets, cuffs and collar are all trimmed in green. It is fully lined in gray. The necktie is not included.
Label: Sainthill-Levine Toronto Montreal. Sainthill-Levine was owned by Abe Levine of Toronto and was in business from 1926 until 1977. They produced all sorts of occupational uniforms, including military uniforms.
Material: Super Rhino-Tex, which was a trademark fabric of Sainthill-Levine denoting wool or wool-rayon blend.
Sizing: Size indicated on label appears to be 43” chest with a 38” waist. It should fit a large size, tall, probably a size 42 - 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: 19” across seam-to-seam

This is a wonderful early 60s blazer. Striking color combination - sure to be noticed!
