Vintage Unused New Wave Mens Outer Jacket 1980s Wool Windbreaker Large 46 NOS
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a wonderful mens outer jacket, almost like a bomber style windbreaker, made in a “new wave” style. The jacket is made of tones of black and light and dark grey wool with specks of red and yellow colour. The pattern consists of light grey vertically rectangular shapes against a textured background. It has design features of the New Wave fashion movement - wide shoulders, wide inset sleeves that taper to the cuff, a box pleat along the sides, adjustable belt at the waist that extends around the back that cinches the waist, collar that can be zipped up to cover the neck, adjustable belts at the cuffs and a flap that covers the zipper, secured closed with three snaps. There is a small vertical pocket hidden under either box pleat in addition to the side pockets. The jacket is fully lined in a black quilted fabric that is stuffed with filler for extra warmth. It is unused and retains the retailer’s hang tag with the original price of $135, a lot of money during the early 80s.
