Gorgeous Original 1940s 40s Vintage Tan Camel Blazer With Arrow Details By Forstmann
This fabulous blazer was made from camel coloured wool gabardine in the 1940s. It was cut in the classic hourglass silhouette of the period with padded shoulders and a nipped waist. The small shawl collar has been adorned with a beautiful arrow tab decoration and there decorative mock pockets at the waist and hip. The jacket fastens with four gorgeous embroidered and fabric covered buttons at the front and turn up cuffs finish off the sleeves beautifully. Inside, the blazer is lined in crepe and has a maker’s label for Forstmann as well as the National Recovery Board tag.
Shoulders: 14” seam to seam
Length: 23 1/2”
The jacket is in very good condition with only a few very small marks and pinholes/grazes as pictured.
This garment is available to purchase with or without dress shields. These clever little contraptions have been made by our seamstress to an original 1940s pattern and can be simply attached to your garment by tack stitching at the corners of the underarm seam, pinning (we wouldn’t recommend that, it hurts if it goes wrong, so if you try this, it is at your own risk only) or inserting tiny poppers. They then stand ready to absorb any sweat and body odours as needed and you can simply detach and launder them instead of your garment, saving you a fortune in dry cleaning bills.
They are equally suitable for suits, blazers and dresses and come in two different options:
1. Pure cream cotton for your heavier weight dresses, blazers and suits
2. White cotton muslin for lightweight summer dresses (so they don’t show through the fabric)
They are universally sized and super easy to use even for a sewing novice as only a couple of tiny stitches are required at each side to secure them.
We sell Dress Shields as a standalone item or at a discount if you purchase them with a garment. We will select the appropriate type to match the garment you have purchased.
