Tweed Hollywood Jacket

This one may not have the immediate flash and bang of the two tone variety, but it’s wild in its own right.  The cut, those pocket details, and oh that fabric.  This vintage tweed hollywood jacket has some really killer detailing. It has four patch pockets, all are pleated. The larger, lower set are flapped.  The jacket is rolled to the third button, but has five, all evenly spaced. The buttons are leather knot / football type, but could probably stand to be replaced.  The top button is missing, the third is in the pocket, as is one of the sleeve buttons. The jacket is fully lined, but I can not locate any labels.  It has classically ’40s wide padded shoulders.  The flecky tweed is heavy and soft- comfortably casual
