Watumulls 1940s cold rayon Hawaiian swing jacket | S-M

1930s - 1940s Clothing




This stylized tropical print cold rayon 1940s swing jacket sold by famed Hawaiian clothing retailer and manufacturer Watumull’s has a bold floral and abstract design in turquoise, coral red, and black. It really pops against the bright white background! The jacket has a hook and eye closure at the high collar, its only fastening. It has triangular shoulder pads at the top of the elbow-length sleeves, and 2 patch pockets. I love the way that the fabric design has been utilized: turned horizontally at the collar and sleeve hems, and for the pockets, turned vertical along the jacket’s front opening and for the sleeves, and used diagonally at the back of the jacket. The front of the jacket hangs relatively straight, but the back has some swing or fullness to it at the hem. It is most fitted at the shoulders. In very good, near excellent condition, this fabulous rayon print Hawaiian 1940s ladies’ jacket has a few picks in the fabric at the back left hem (see photo). I see no other issues—it’s a beauty!
