Original 1940s 40s Grey Wool Suit Jacket With Gorgeous Pockets
This wonderful jacket was made in the 1940s from a grey wool. The garment boasts the padded shoulders and nipped waist that are so typical of the decade. The jacket has a v neckline combined with a notched lapel collar and single line of three grey coloured buttons extend down to the waist. The two faux pockets with stitch outlines have the most fabulous W shaped decorative pocket flaps with button decoration. Inside, the jacket is lined in crepe and has a maker’s label for Gerald Fisher Model.
Shoulders: 15” seam to seam
The jacket is in good condition, however there are some very faint stains to the front of the jacket which are barely noticeable. The crepe lining has staining to the neckline and underarms in particular and some wear and splits in roughly the same areas 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.
