This is a vintage mod 60s ladies’ leather jacket made in Sweden by C.O. Ericson & Co of Malung and Motala. Ericson was founded in 1911 and moved its entire operation to Motala in 1971, so the presence of Malung on the label affixed to this jacket dates it to pre-1971. The jacket is made in a short style with two pockets applied to the left side. It has a narrow collar and does up with 5 silver snaps. It is lined in rayon satin.
Sizing: Swedish size 38 is indicated, which is supposed to be equivalent to a US size 8 (medium), but this is a vintage sizing, so please rely on the following measurements for fit, taking the thickness of the leather into consideration:
Sleeve Inseam: 15”
Bust: 36” around, taken under the arms
Waist: 33” around
Overall length: 21 1/2"
Condition: It is in very good condition with no pronounced wear, tear, odour or staining. The leather does have some toning, but this probably is simply a function of age and bestows a true vintage look to the jacket. There is a tiny hole, about 1/16” diameter to the lining at the neckline, but this is quite minor. Otherwise, the jacket is in very nice shape.
This is a great looking jacket - perfect mod styling, great Swedish look!
