Vintage 1950s Mens Collarless Sport Coat Wool Jacket Master Built NY Size M


Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing

This product is unavailable

This is a 1950s era mens sport coat or blazer jacket made in a rarely seen collarless style.  The fabric is made of “greige” wool - a combination of beige and grey, with a slight greenish tone to it (at least that’s what I perceive), subtle and attractive colour.  It closes with two buttons and has a deep rounded cutaway at the bottom..  The shoulders has small pads and there is a pocket built into either side with a flap - you have the option of hiding the flap inside the pocket for a jetted pocket look (see photo).  There are two buttons at either cuff and the back bottom has a 4 1/2” deep double vent vent.   The jacket is half lined in a brown acetate fabric.  It has a pocket built into the interior right and left sides. 

Label: Master Built Clothes Fifth Avenue New York

Union label:  ACWA (Amalgamated Clothing Workers of America) label that was in use from 1949 until 1962 (no registration mark on label)

Sizing: No size is indicated, but this should fit a medium size, probably a 40 - please rely on the following measurements for fit (compare measurements with a similar jacket that you presently own or to your own body measurements, taking the cut of the garment into account):

Shoulders: 17 1/2” across from shoulder/sleeve seam to shoulder/sleeve seam

Sleeves: 26” from the shoulder/sleeve seam

Sleeve inseam: 18 1/2”

Chest:  44” around, taken under the arms

Waist:  41” around

Overall length:  31”, measured flat

Condition: It is in very good condition with the exception of a small opening to the lining of the right armpit (see last close-up photo), very minor and just needs a couple of stitches. In addition, there are a few tiny whitish spots at the end of the left sleeve, really very minor in that they are very difficult to notice, and mentioned only in the interest of full disclosure. Otherwise, no pronounced wear, tears, stains, or odour - this jacket looks to have seen moderate use and has been well cared for over the years. A dry cleaning will be beneficial, although it is very wearable as is.

This is a very sharp 50s or early 60s era jacket....hard to find collarless men’s blazers of this period!
