Handmacher 50s 60s Vintage Suit Jacket Braid Trim Chanel Style

Understated elegance, so Chanel-like in its classic chic! The jacket has the short somehat boxy silhouette typical for the late 1950s and early 1960s. It's styled with princess seaming, notched lapels and 3/4 length sleeves.Cleverly placed small handwarmer pockets are positioned at the bottom edge of the jacket, seamed in such a way as to blend into the shaping seams. The collar, lapels, front plackets and pocket tops are bound in silky black braid.

 FABRIC/COLORS:

The fabric is black, rather crisp and tightly woven with good body - the jacket is so well made that there's nowhere to snip fabric from for a fiber burn test, but based on look and feel and awareness of typical Handmacher quality, I'm going to guess a silk/wool blend. This might fall into the catgeory of bombazine. The jacket is fully lined in a lightweight faille that feels like silk.

 

TAGS:

Tailored by Handmacher. The jacket also has the union label used between 1955 and 1963. Handmacher suits were well known in the 1950s and early 60s for their fabulous quality and attention to detail.

 

CLOSURES:

Three large black plastic buttons with bound buttonholes.
