RESERVED FOR SARA - PLEASE DO NOT PURCHASE - LAYAWAY PAYMENT 2 of 3 - due 30th October 2021
This amazing blazers was made from grey gabardine in the 1940s. It features the quintessential hourglass silhouette of the period with strong padded shoulders and a nipped waist. The super sharp notched collar can even be buttoned higher if desired on a could day but adds a real style element as it is. The blazer fastens with six large fabric covered buttons at the front and had sharp turn up cuffs. Matching buttons adorn the unusual triangular mock pockets at the sides of the jackets. These give a real lift to the hem of the blazer which creates a peplum effect and emphasises the nipped waist. It is the kind of tailoring you really only find on 1940s pieces now! Inside, the blazer is lined in soft pink crepe and bears the maker’s label for Rizik Bros of Washington.
The blazer is in good condition with only a faint mark on the placket and a tiny seam pop under the arm as pictured. The lining has been stained at the shoulders (likely from the shoulder pad material used) however whilst very noticeable inside, thus is thankfully barely visible from the outside.
