Awesome Vintage 60s Poppy Print Spring Jacket/Coat -
If you're shy and want to blend in with the crowd, then this almost neon-psychedelic poppy print Spring jacket probably isn't going to work for you. There's not a chance in Hades that you'll be overlooked when you're wearing something this shocking and bright.
This vintage 60s jacket is made of a poly jersey knit. It's the nice kind--not thick or bulky. The fabric has a smooth soft hand and a nice drape and flow. The slightly a-line cut, lean sleeves and mandarin collar are utterly chic and contemporary looking. Bound button holes indicate that even though this vintage jacket doesn't carry a big name label, it's still a well made garment. (That's what we love about vintage. Old clothes were simply made to last.) The coat is lined in olive acetate fabric.
It's true. This outrageous coat is not for the meek. With the world in the current state that it's in, we think designer Elsa Schiaparelli probably had it right. "In difficult times fashion is always outrageous.”
VERY GOOD. There's a very slight discoloration on one of the sleeves. The lining is quite clean, but has been repaired professionally at the armholes. There are a few faint, light spots on the jacket that are hard to find. They blend in with the print

Thin polyester that moves like jerseyFabric Notes:
This fabric is feels sort of crepe-y, sort of like jersey. It has lots of movement. If you think of those slinky disco shirts, imagine that being a bit more weighty and less filmy. It's like that. It's fully lined in acetate that's mustard color with a tinge of olive to it.
