This is a perfect lightweight coat or long jacket for spring and fall, in a fab 1960s mod style, made of a smooth, satin-weave wool in variegated stripes of tomato red, royal blue and mallard green. The coat or jacket buttons closed down to about waist level, with navy plastic buttons. It has a cute “button-down” collar (with functional buttons) and a tiny chest pocket with button trim. Bust darts shape the upper bodice slightly, but the jacket is intended to have a fairly loose, boxy fit—see measurements for details. The three-quarter-length sleeves have single buttons at the cuffs. There are 2 slit pockets, one at each side seam. The smooth, slightly shiny, lightweight wool fabric feels more like a textile normally used for suiting or dress fabric, and should be a comfortable layer for moderate temperatures. Like many 1960s clothing items, this jacket is smallest/most fitted at the shoulders, so please check that measurement carefully, and feel free to ask us any questions about sizing. In very good condition, the jacket has some fading to the purple acetate taffeta lining fabric only—not seen from the outside, or when worn (see inside-out photo). The youthful style and colorful stripes will make this 1960s jacket or coat a fun addition to your outerwear wardrobe!
