Original 1940s 40s Vintage Aubergine Gabardine Blazer With Amazing Geometric Collar And Pockets
This fabulous blazer was made from rich aubergine purple gabardine in the 1940s. It was cut in the classic hourglass silhouette of the period with padded shoulders and a nipped waist. The sharp notched lapel collar has wonderful geometric stitch detailing at the edge and leads to four beautiful fabric covered buttons with square centres. The huge triangular pockets add a stunning detail to the jacket. Inside, the blazer is lined in blue crepe and is without maker’s labels.
Bust: 38” (tight 40”)
Shoulders: 16 1/2” seam to seam
The jacket is in very good condition with only a few tiny grazes and repaired seams as pictured. There is some slight discolouration to the inside of the collar and the lining which is not visible when worn.
