Our ever popular Americana Jacket in 'Abraham Moons' Shetland plain weave wool in moss green tones. One word...'exquisite'.
A practical yet elegant 1940s style jacket based on an 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.

I love my jacket.
It is the oldschool kind of wool that is a bit prickly and keeps you snug and warm even if the wind is comming in from the sea and is rather cold. Perfect when you want to get out of your big winter jacket/coat but it is still to cold to go without a jacket.
The stock photo of the is a bit misleading colorwise as the other review states. Mine is not the green gray color pictured, but the treads in the fabric have both fibres of bottle green and dark brown. It is a brownish and green kind of color.
I am a bit bigger than size 18, so I can only button it in the waist on a good day, not every day. But it fits nicely in the front, so I’m happy.
I hope to be back for another jacket at some point. I would love a navy one.
Since the color is called "moss", I was expecting a dark green jacket. It does have some greenish hue to it, but I would call it a flecked charcoal. It's a beautiful color that will go with everything; as good as black, only more interesting. The lining is in silver. Just dreamy.
I own the Americana jacket in every color made available by the House of Foxy. The quality of the fabric and the fit are superb. Please keep them coming in more colors:)
