Soft as a dream and warm as it can be, this gorgeous vintage fur jacket from the 1940s combines the simplicity of luxurious black mink with a simple short cape design. Structured in the shoulders for a Katherine Hepburn ‘Old Hollywood’ brand of striking chic, the interior jacquard lining adds a softer sweetness with its feminine motif of oversized bows.

Generously represented stalking down catwalks for several years running, and popping up on street style blogs with everything from slouchy vintage denim and heels to skinny pants and fancy flats, fur has returned to the fashion fore in a major way. For the many who love fur but not the ethical concerns behind buying it new, vintage pieces like this one can be a happy compromise that sacrifices nothing in terms of style.

-Irvin Meller ‘Ladies Tailor’ Louisville
-no size label (please refer to shoulder measurements)
-Content: no content label – genuine fur with the look and feel of black mink
-Cross Shoulder: 17”-18”
-Total Length: 28”
-Condition: Very Good / As-Is (Priced as-is. Fur is overall in gorgeous condition with some fairly minor lightening and wear to the high-friction area down the length of both front edges. This has resulted in a few small areas of balding just along the edge – acceptable and minor. Lastly, one of the ribbons that was sewn inside for purposes unknown has shredded, the second has begun to shred as well, but this does not seem to effect the function of the cape. This damage is not visible from the exterior. Buyer will most likely want to remove both ribbons, as they do not seem necessary for wear.)
