This is a vintage men’s tuxedo dinner jacket that was custom tailored during the 1940s.  The jacket is extremely well constructed - fitted at the waist and with large pads in the shoulders.  The jacket has silk satin covered peaked lapels, typical of the period, and a four button double breasted closuret.  Each of the cuffs has three buttons.  There is a jetted pocket at either side and one at the left chest.  The jacket is made of black wool, very nice quality.  It is fully lined in black satin and there is no back vent. There are no pants.    

Age: early 1940s.  

Label: No label, but this is definitely a quality made piece
