Tailored Ladies Jacket & Waistcoat (Set)

R200.00

Today’s rather stylish jacket and waistcoat came from the same home as the beautifully made Chinese silk coat and jacket we sold previously. Today’s duo are obviously very different in style (and size – I assume these were from her younger years when she was a bit skinnier!), but as with the other items, these are great quality, having been tailor-made. Unfortunately the condition is an issue again, with the fabric on the jacket having worn through in one or two spots (the waistcoat seems fine), but again the clothes are lined, so you don’t notice the damage quite as much. The other issue is that the fabric (which almost looks woolen) is slightly scratchy, even with the lining, so I wouldn’t recommend wearing them without something underneath – not that you’re likely to wear a wooly winter jacket with a t-shirt anyway. Otherwise I’m a really big fan of this set! The dumb valet doesn’t do it justice at all – it gives the shoulders a rounded look, when in fact this is quite a sharply tailored set! I’m not sure of the size, but my guess would be a 32/34 – I ‘m a 36 and I could get it across my shoulders, but couldn’t do the jacket or the waistcoat up over my bosom!

Please note that we’re away until the 16th December so there will unfortunately be a delay in the couriering of items
