This is a rare find. This supple nubuck suede jacket dates to the 40s . It is a Mexican Mariachi band jacket..It is made of extremely soft and supple suede and lined in brown cotton twill. The jacket is decorated with white soutache decoration and has a large intricate leather applique which is the Mexico Coat of Arms depicting a golden eagle on a prickly pear devouring a snake. More about this symbol can be read here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coat_of_arms_of_Mexico
This particular version of the Coat of Arms has been used since 1916.

For the most part this jacket is in very good condition.There is some wear and slight soiling consistent with age. The twill lining is showing some wear but this always replaceable by a good tailor or seamstress.

Measurements:
Chest 38"
Collar to hem 21"
Sleeve 24"


This is truly a piece of vintage folk art.
