Vintage 1950s Tailored Black Wool Jacket by Irene Lentz SZ S

Irene Lentz's suits and jackets have the best tailored details. This black wool suit jacket (no skirt) has an extremely wide lapel and collar that almost covers a lovely welted breast pocket on the right side. The buttons are covered with tiny bound buttonholes. And the jacket is nipped in with darts. Shoulder pads, of course. And hem weights.  Those front hip pockets? The right one is somewhat standard and ends in the dart. The left one? This one is an open welted slit, set higher on the hip than the right. It's not a pocket â�� and the lining on the back is fully finished. Perhaps a slot for a scarf? Or hankie? What you see in the photos is the fabric of an unrelated skirt. The jacket is fully lined in black silk.

Label: Irene exclusively for L.S. Ayres and Co.
