B. Altman's was one of THE great New York department stores. It was the first to move to Fifth Avenue, which at the time was primarily residential, designing its palatial four-story building to fit in with the surrounding mansions--it was directly opposite the mansion of the socialite Mrs. Astor (of the Astor family), and, unlike her mansion (which was demolished to make way for the Empire State Building) Altman's store still stands... although now as part of CUNY rather than as a store in its own right. (It closed in 1990). It was designated a New York City landmark in 1985.

In its day Altman's was one of the most exclusive department stores in the city--and this jacket shows that its upscale reputation was fully justified.

Cut from a wonderful slubby, almost-raw silk in an elegant black and white nailhead pattern with a subtle berry and Royal blue overcheck, this is a contemporary two-button jacket with subtle darts. half-canvassed and fully lined, this has a single center vent and was beautifully Union Made in the USA.

Dating from the period before Burberry became a more fashionable brand, this is wonderful old-school quality with a lovely American heritage.

Asking just $35, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA.
