1940s Days Whipcord Cruiser Jacket Size S/M
四十年代 Days 馬褲呢 (Whipcord) Cruiser 夾克 尺碼：S/M
This jacket is a nice example of why whipcord was such a popular fabric in the 1940s and 1950s. Whipcord is tough as nails, and even a jacket like this one that is nearly 80 years old still looks great. It has only one pin-sized hole on the back, which is shown in the pictures. After so many cleanings, this jacket is soft and supple with a great vintage look. It drapes nicely and is smooth to the touch. The jacket is union made, and the union tag is still visible, although faded completely away. The Talon zippers all function well, although they're a little bit tight from age. There are outside pockets galore, including a rear zippered pouch, and an inside chest pocket as well. There are a few minor flaws, in addition to the small hole. One of the middle snaps has rusted and is a little tight. There is also some faint pilling on the left underarm. The photos also show an extremely faint light stain on the back. Otherwise, this is a great jacket with many decades of wear left. Fits like a U.S. men's S/M. (I am 5'8" tall, 165 lbs, with a 39 inch chest, and the jacket fits a little loose on me in a t-shirt, with enough room for a sweater underneath.) Please consult photos and measurements for more details.
