This jacket is another real favorite. I always like anything from the Swing Era and the ’40’s.
Swing style with an open front, loose back and interesting pocket detail. The fit is so elegant. I also love the decorative buttons on tabs at the waist, which are made as extensions of the pocket flaps. Novel idea.
The material is a heavy rayon (I guess) twill, with a rayon lining. “Tailored by Lydia Fashions New York”. I could spend all day imagining the glamorous life it led!
Very smart for work or for evening. Black is always extremely practical . . . . . . .
