This is a limited edition colourway - only some sizes now available.
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...
An indispensable jacket for any 1940s enthusiast - creates a VERY 1940s silhouette with its strong shoulders and nipped in waist where jacket body blousons over.
Goes beautifully with our Sailor or Swing Pants and 40s Whirlaway Skirts. Jacket is made from a Italian wool blend and we have enhanced the style with light tone top stitching on buttonholes, collar, centre front & waist. We have lined the body in a lovely quality viscose lining fabric.
The other key 40s features are the bishop style sleeve with button cuff and the classic 1940s style collar.
- long sleeves with smoke shell button cuff
- 4 large shell buttons
- 2 front pockets with top stitch detail
- fully lined in our rayon crepe
- outer fabric is wool blend in check
Length of jacket from back of neck to hem - approx 47cm

Proudly made in Great Britain.

I deliberated about buying this for so long, it had sold out in my size but I was thinking of trying the size up I just couldn’t quite pull the trigger...and then one fine morning when I was browsing I noticed that one is my size was showing as available! So I did it! I ordered it! And I am now so glad I did, it is so much more perfect than I expected and I am also glad I got it in my true size by the chart and did not size up. It makes every vintage style dress I own and every a line skirt suddenly make sense for fall. The brown and grey pattern make it look equally good with browns and blacks. I have wide shoulders and the fit is extremely comfortable through the arms while still being overall very flattering.
That's my third Americana Jacket, and each one is amazing!
I just love them. This is a must have in any 40's wardrobe.
Moreover the quality and the details are wonderful.
