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! 

Label: None

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:
