A practical yet elegant 1940s style jacket based on the American deadstock jacket from the wartime. We have been inspired by the best bits and enhanced...

This jacket is only fitted at the waist as the body is loose. So please choose from your waist.

My size was sold out and I had to wait until a new shipment came in.. and I’m happy I did! The tweed wool is beautiful and the cut is flattering. I love the tight waist!
I saved up for this coat, and boy was it worth it. Proper shoulder pads and a very nipped in waist. If you are between sizes I suggest you opt for the larger one, and absolutely choose by waist size. I ordered the 16 and my measurements fluctuate between B40W32 and B42W34 (currently in the latter). The jacket is roomy in the bust and I suspect the buttons can be moved somewhat if you'd like to make any slight adjustments. I could definitely wear a light cardigan underneath.
The jacket is quite light, but the wool keeps me warm and toasty in the chilly Scandinavian autumn. It is also lined with a beautiful sage green rather than the chartreuse colour seen in the picture. As always, top quality!
