This is a wonderful unused 60s era men’s suit jacket made in a bright green “Lincolnshire” wool fabric - Lincoln longhair sheep have been bred in that area of England since the Roman occupation, circa 40 AD and their wool is particularly valued for its length and dyeability, said to practically glow when dyed. The sleeve still retains its cloth and cardboard labels. The jacket has padded shoulders, high set notched lapels, a three covered button closure and sleeves have two covered buttons at either cuff. There is a flapped pocket at either side and a pocket at the left chest. The jacket has a single vent at the back that measures 6 1/2” and is still sewn closed with a stitch at the bottom. It is half lined in a striped green rayon lining.
Age: mid 1960s
