Vintage 1970s Yves Saint Laurent Black Velvet Mens Jacket Made in France Small
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
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!
