a handsome smoking jacket in a red & black plaid taffeta, c1950's.

a wonderful collector's item, and a fabulous piece of history- i do not come across smoking jackets often, and this one is particularly beautiful.

the lining feels like a silk satin- it is black with scattered centaur logos.
one hidden button and tab fasten the jacket on the inside. come with original belt!
one breast pocket and two at front hips.

maker: a Bert Bacharach Original / tailored by Rabhor - Godchaux's , New Orleans

(Bert Bacharach was Burt Bacharach's father, and was a fashion editior/ authority)
also, here is an informative link re: Godchaux's department store, where this jacket was sold.

size on label: - please refer to measurements below.
condition: excellent vintage with no tears, flaws or discoloration. the lining looks wonderfulthe faintest odor of smoke. (but, of course)

no size label- fits like a mens L, but please refer to measurements:

across chest, armpit to armpit= 22.5"
shoulders=18.5"
