Description

This creamy mustard yellow wool swing jacket has been trimmed with black outerwear velvet on the collar, sleeves and pocket flaps, and three large round black buttons replaced the original buttons. This one-of-a-kind fashion is a medley of fine wool and black velvet trimming. This one-of-a-kind jacket would be a great idea for a gift under $90 (with free shipping to any address in the USA, and discounted to shipping to all addresses outside the USA).

This jacket style is a swing style, not meant to be fitted, and that's why I purchased it, so that the lower edge would swing around. The actual measurements are:
* Shoulder-to-shoulder: 15" (38.1cm)
* Bust: 42" (106.68cm)
* Length: 25" (63.5cm)
* Sleeve length: 22" (55.38cm)

I purchased this vintage 1940s jacket in January, 1989 at a consignment boutique in Chicago, and added the trims and changed the buttons the same month. So, technically it is all "vintage" by Etsy standards. I altered the jacket so that I could wear it over a black cashmere turtleneck and some skinny black velvet jeans that I had at the time.

The jacket was from Hytken's in Louisville, Kentucky, and made from 100% Stroock Exclusive Fabric (Stroock was creator of America's most distinguished woolens). The lining color matches the woven wool color, and I think that it's a matte silk (or something very similar). The jacket is in excellent condition.

There are two pockets (the lower flaps) and two faux pockets (the upper flaps), and I covered those and the upper part of the collar with an outerwear black velvet. I also put trim of the black around the bottom of each sleeve. The original buttons were changed out for three large black round buttons.

The jacket has been stored unworn in my pet-free and smoke-free home for the last 20+ years and is in excellent condition!
