Gorgeous Original 1940s 40s Vintage Charcoal Grey Striped Blazer With Red Velvet Accents By I. Magnin
This fabulous blazer was made in the 1940s from charcoal grey wool with a subtle stripe. It was cut in a classic hourglass silhouette with padded shoulders and a nipped waist. The top section notched lapel collar has been adorned with a decorative lipstick red velvet panel to add a beautiful accent to the jacket. The striped fabric has been cleverly used at a right angle to delineate the placket and the tops of the mock bust pockets. The jacket fastens with a single row of four black buttons, which have also been used to decorate the pockets. Turn up cuffs finish off the sleeves and tiny functional pockets have cleverly been hidden in the side seams. Inside, the blazer is lined in red crepe and bears the maker’s label for Bass New York, a retailer’s label for I. Magnin and the National Recovery Board tag.
Shoulders: 16” seam to seam
The blazer is in very good condition with only some slight discolouration to the lining at the shoulder which is not visible when worn.
