    Incredibly Cool Vintage 1960s Suede Blazer.... from Corbin Gentleman's Clothiers!

    [​IMG]

    Made by one of the premier Ivy clothiers!

    c. 40, 42. Measurements:

    Chest: 21 1/4
    Sleeve: 25 1/2
    Shoulder: 19
    Length: 30 1/2

    This lovely suede blazer simply oozes vintage cool! Surprisingly, this was made by Corbin--one of the premier clothiers of the Golden Age of Ivy Style that was so wedded to the "Natural Shoulder" look that they had a line of trousers they (rather bizarrely) called "The Natural Shoulder".

    Since this was made by Corbin it is of very high quality; the suede is lovely and supple even after almost 50 years. This jacket is cut as a two button jacket which appears to be a 2/1 sack. It has a slightly Western influence with both a front and back shoulder yoke. The front pockets are flapped, and the jacket has two button cuffs; all of the buttons are metal-shanked, leather covered football buttons, and all are present and original. The jacket is fully lined, and has a single center vent.

    It was, of course, Union Made in the USA, between 1964 and 1976.

    This jacket has the usual markings and spotting that you'd expect from vintage suede--this just ads to its character and patina and gives it the cool that you can only get with genuine vintage pieces. It does have some very minor roughness on the left shoulder from rubbing, but the rest of the spotting and darkening of the leather is focuses near the hem, and appears to be natural wear rather than damage; this is supported by the fact that the cream lining is intact and in excellent condition. This jacket is thus in (conservatively) Very Good condition, and is an absolute bargain at just $49, or offer, boxed, shipped, and insured in the USA. (This will be shipped in a larger box to prevent creasing.)
