This one-of-a-kind oversized jacket has a wonderful cut and an interesting silhouette. The black fabric is heavier weight new European linen. The inside collar, centre front of the jacket, and the front patch pocket all have a contrasting facing from vintage repurposed French cotton mattress ticking purchased in the markets of Provence.
The facings feature the taupe, red and cream stripes from the mattress ticking. The pocket features an original, neatly machine sewn, patch mend, that has been applied in a slightly crooked manner.
The sleeves are bracelet length. There are no contrasting facings inside the cuff on this jacket. This jacket has one pocket.
The fabric has been pre-washed and will not shrink if washed on cold and hung to dry.
The generous boxy silhouette of the jacket will fit a range of sizes. Please review the measurements provided (see last two photos for this jacket) to ensure that this would be the right size for you.
Fabrics that are not new linen are listed as vintage or antique as it is difficult to date fabrics and, when sourcing fabric, my focus is on its tactile nature and its reflection of a history of use and/or workmanship.
