    VINTAGE BELT-BACK BI-SWING JACKET

    [​IMG]

    Perfect for Summer in British Postal Red hopsack!

    c. 42, 44. Measurements:

    Chest: 22 1/4
    Sleeve: 22 3/4 (+2 1/2)
    (Maximum sleeve length c. 25 1/4)
    Shoulder: 18 1/2
    Length: 29

    This is wonderful!

    Made in New York City between 1968 and 1976 as a reproduction of a 1930's-style blet-back jacket with a bi-swing back, this jacket is now a truly vintage jacket in its own right, having been made over 40 years ago--roughly the length of time that separated it from the 1930s jacket that it modeled upon when it was first made!

    Cut from a classic hopsack cloth that is the colour of a British postal pillar box, this has a two button front with darting. It has three flapped front pockets--the flaps are scalloped, and feature ornamental buttons. The back has a sewn-in half-belt, as well as a pleated bi-swing back for ease of movement. The jacket has two-button cuffs.

    It is half-lined in pale sepia red to complement the hopsack shell; it is also half-canvassed. It was Union Made in the USA.

    This lovely jacket is Very Good/Excellent condition (it has a single stitch pull, as shown, on the rear near the belt) and is a bargain at just $39, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA.
