Outstanding craftsmanship in this jacket. Body of jacket is 100% wool - red and navy striped pattern on a dark ivory or flax colored background, fully lined with navy blue matte satin. Label reads: Betty Jean Original - LW & Co. - Reg. U.S. Pat. Off.

Slit pocket with bound edges at each side of the front. All buttonholes bound. 2" split cuff on sleeves.

The details and care put into garments of this era are one of the things I LOVE about them. Check out the UNIQUE DETAIL of a bound hole hidden under each side of lapel - They don't show if you're not using them, but allow you to wear a scarf around your neck and draw the ends through to show on the outside of the jacket. (See photo - scarf not included in sale)

Only flaw I can see is one tiny moth hole (approx. 1/8") in right sleeve (upper front, slightly toward underside of sleeve). As you can see in the photos, the detail of the fabric camouflages it pretty effectively. It's really only noticeable if you are looking for it. If you would like to see a close up picture of it with a measuring tape, send me a note.

I would consider this jacket x-small / small. Measurements taken with garment laying flat - Bustline: 36" - Waist: 28.5" - Neckline to hem in back: 23.5" - Sleeve from shoulder seam to cuff: 24" - Shoulder to shoulder in back 16"
