As usual, I came upon this jacket by surprise and was thrilled by the hand-tailored details. The true color is a nice wheat beige, washed out by the camera flash. The the gold thread-embroidered label would also not photograph well with the flash in my camera, but maybe you can get a close-up view of it with zoom-in feature. It came from a Melbourne store and is made of cloth, as all the older labels of best quality were done.
The jacket is fully lined. The buttons (all are present) are in plastic, with a basket-weave design. The fit is high-hip length in a boxy cut. Sleeves are bracelet length – all nice design features from the Kennedy era. Someday I’ll photograph it again on one of my models for a more elegant presentation – but, until then –
one of the nicest things of all, it fits me . . .

Another plus is that the fabric is a patented linen-poly blend that gives you the lovely texture without the wrinkling issues of linen.
