Vintage 70s Shearling Jacket Schianto Italy Ladies Size S M
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a wonderful 70s era shearling jacket made in Italy by Marco under the “Schianto” brand name - Schianto is Italian for “knockout”. The exterior of the shearling jacket has a fine suede finish, very soft, as one would expect from a fine quality shearling. It has a plush fur collar and cuffs and the same plush fur lines the interior of the shearling jacket. The fur is dyed using the unshorn fur of a long hair sheep. The open edge is made of matching coloured leather. There is a snap down flapped pocket on either side of the chest and two loops at either cuff - I’m unsure if there had been belts through the loops or if they are simply meant to decorative. There is decorative stitching on the loops, pockets and edging the leather trim. It closes with four buttons.
