Vintage Henri Bendel NY Leather Motorcycle Jacket Ladies Size M
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a pre-owned leather motorcycle style jacket sold by upscale New York retailer Henri Bendel. The jacket features buttery soft leather and has many of the features of a motorcycle jacket, including a zip-up chest pocket and side pockets, zippered cuffs, a snap-down bottom pocket, a zippered front closure, a notched lapel that can be worn with an open neck or closed and a cinch belt around the bottom. It is styled with a dropped shoulder and tapered sleeves. It has a satin acetate body lining and nylon fabric sleeve lining. It was made in Korea, but is of very nice quality, as you would expect of any item that was offered at Henri Bendel. Difficult to date precisely, but most likely 1990s.
Material: Genuine Leather
Sizing: Size “M” is indicated, but please rely on the following measurements, taken from the exterior, for fit, taking the thickness of the leather and the style of the jacket into consideration:
Shoulders: 25” from the dropped shoulder seam to the other dropped shoulder seam
Sleeves: 17 1/2” from the shoulder seam
Sleeve Inseam: 15”
Chest: 46” around, taken under the arms, should fit “blouson”
Waist: 36” around, uncinched by the belt
Overall length: 24 1/2“, measured flat
Condition: It is in very condition with no pronounced wear or tear - the only wear, other than creasing, that I can see are a couple of tiny light surface scuffs at the left shoulder, really nothing - otherwise, this jacket looks like it saw little use and was very well cared for.
This is a great looking jacket with lovely soft leather - excellent quality!
