This gorgeous black broadtail 1960s jacket or short coat has the distinctive moiré pattern and lustrous shine of this sheared, curly lamb fur. The jacket style is mid-1960s, intended for a boxy fit, bracelet-length sleeves, a rounded collar, and side slits at the hem. The sleeves/shoulders and bust are the smallest-fitting areas. Although the flat measurements make it look larger, I estimate that it will fit best/loosely for a modern size small, approximately a 34 to 36 inch bust. The jacket is lined with lovely black silk satin, trimmed with narrow black velvet ribbon. The 2 patch pockets in front are lined with black velvet—a nice detail! A single slip pocket is hidden in the lining, on the right side. The jacket fastens in front with 4 large, braid-trimmed, fur-covered buttons, plus a single hook under the collar. This 1960s broadtail coat is in very good, near excellent condition. The only issue to note is some wear to the edges of the bound buttonholes from normal use. The beautiful black lamb fur is sturdy and flexible, and should have plenty of wear left in it.
