This is a1970s era black velvet jacket that was made in France by Yves Saint Laurent.  The jacket has padded shoulders, wide notched lapels, a large patch pocket at either side and a pocket at the left chest.  It is tailored to be form fitting with a tapered waist and slightly flared bottom.  It closes with two buttons at the front.  There are four buttons at either cuff and the back bottom has a double vent.   The jacket is fully lined in a dark grey coloured fabric that is woven with Yves Saint Laurent throughout.  It has a pocket built into the interior at either side.  The jacket was too small for my mannequin form, so I photographed it open and also on a hanger, buttoned up.

Label: Yves Saint Laurent Made in France

Fabric label:  92% cotton / 8% rayon

Sizing: There is no size label, and although this should fit a small size, probably about a US size 34, 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” across from shoulder/sleeve seam to shoulder/sleeve seam

Sleeves: 24 1/2” from the shoulder/sleeve seam

Sleeve inseam: 17”

Chest:  38” around, taken under the arms

Waist:  33” around

Overall length:  29”, measured flat

Condition: It is in very good condition with no stains, odors, wear or tears - this jacket looks to have seen very little use and has been well cared for over the years.  Please note that I have lightened the photos in order to show the detail on the jacket - it is really black

Excellent French quality by a renowned Parisian designer….great looking jacket if it fits - would make a great boyfriend jacket for a girl!
