Size 6 1940s Suit Jacket - WWII Era Chocolate Brown Striped Summer 40s Short Sleeve - Velveteen Trim - Nip Waisted Office Wear - Waist 26

$ 47.99

This 1940s jacket has a terrific look in sharp tailoring, budget priced as it's in less-than-excellent condition (see Condition Detail below). It's a nip-waisted design with a point lapel and faux chest pocket with chevron velveteen accents. There are cuffs to the short sleeves, original shoulder pads, and a trim hourglass silhouette. A great juniors size jacket from the mid-late 40s.
