Soft gabardine blazer
Black & White & Rita-Hayworth-worthy -- in full color. Nile-green gabardine jacket -- with lyrical lines. Collar is a sharp 'v'-turn at the neck, and then a swoop of figure 8. Triangular-shaped waist pieces slim the figure, pointing towards button. One button closure. Slanted front pockets. Fitted. Lined in turquoise rayon crepe. Medium-weight shoulder-pads. Square underarm gussets. Narrow. By Matlin -- purchased from 'the Metropolitan' of Dayton.
size & fit- large
shoulders (seam-to-seam): 15"
bodice (shoulder-to-waist): 15 1/2"
shoulder-to-hem: 25 1/2"
condition**- very good
Delightfully wearable shape, with no obtrusive flaws. Any small faults do not retract from wearability and will be fully-disclosed. Pics are taken in strong sunlight and colors bleach-out in some images.
Noted minor issue: one speck of bleach-dot on the neck-edge of collar. Slight fade along collar edge. Shoulders also show a slight fade as compared to the body. These are small imperfections and not noticable -- the jacket is very wearable.
Possible alteration: unusual 'square' gussets under the arms may have been added later by a seamstress -- but the material matches. See second to last pic.
** Vintage items are precious, pre-owned pieces of history. Many have unique dyes and handcrafted prints, artisan weaves and intricate hand-tailoring -- details no longer available except in modern couture. Please love & respect your vintage.
