50s Men's Suit Coat Jacket Rockabilly Red Flecked Sharkskin$95.00
DETAILS: This is a wonderful vintage 1950s men's suit jacket - it can be styled conservatively for the Mad Men look or taken in the direction of Viva las Vegas Rockabilly with a change of accessories. The jacket is styled with lightly padded shoulders and medium width notched lapels. The body is gently fitted, with a center back vent. There is a besom left chest pocket and a pair of bound handwarmer pockets with flaps, as well as a small faux flapped watch pocket above the right handwarmer pocket. The lining is cropped in back, typical for this era - it has inner bound pockets on both sides of the chest front. Seams are beautifully finished using clean-stitching.
