Inside, the jacket is lined in satin, has a MB monogram as well as a maker’s custom order label.
The matching men’s jacket features strong padded shoulders to give an exaggerated silhouette. It is cut in a double breasted style with a horizontal lapel collar with decorative button holes on each side. A pair of functional slit waist pockets and a similar breast pocket combines with an inside pocket to give plenty of space for keys and a wallet.
