LOVE FINDING TRUE VINTAGE JACKETS WITH STYLE!

What a find! Made in 1940’s/1950’s style, this jacket was custom-tailored by someone with expert skills. Some of my favorite colors – deep plum and teal green. Nice tailoring with patch pockets and those wonderful buttoned tabs at the cuffs. Fully lined, and with modest shoulder padding – my favorite!

At first, I thought it might have truly been a 1950’s coat but on closer examination, I decided that it is probably a retro version made in the 1970’s or 1980’s (but I could be wrong about that). Both of those decades had a 1940’s revival period. So fun and it fits, so I’ll wear it a lot when the weather is cooler. For now, it must be stored to protect the fabric which is a wool blend.

I did find a couple of blouses made in the ’60’s or ’70’s, but they’re not distinctive enough to show in a post. I’ll just enjoy wearing them. So, that’s it for my most recent haul but I’ll be back at it in a few days and my handbag reprise continues for some time.
