BEAUTIFUL VINTAGE Lighter-weight Shepherd's Check Jacket--Two Button Sack! c.40S

BEAUTIFUL VINTAGE Lighter-weight Shepherd's Check Jacket--Two Button Sack! c.40S

This is absolutely lovely--a wonderful vintage 1960s jacket in lighter-weight wool, originally sold by "Cruise Casuals" of Miami, FL (founded in 1962). The cut of this jacket is beautifully 1960s, being a rare two-button sack with a lovely roll to its elegantly narrow lapels. It is half-canvassed and half-lined, and has the shallow twin vent that was becoming popular in the 1960s with the British Invasion of Beatles-inspired style. The colourway and patterning are also wonderful--a classic black and white shepherd's check with a bold berry red overcheck.

This jacket is cut from a lighter-weight wool--it was, after all, designed to be worn casually (when that word meant something different than it does today!) in Florida, or on cruises when the breeze became brick at night. It was Union made in the USA, and is in excellent condition.

Asking just $35, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA--which really is a bargain for this vintage beauty!
