Grayhound belted back tweed jacket
This vintage jacket was made by “Greyhound” in the late ’50s or early ’60s. The dating is a tad tricky to be exact on because of the unusual design of it. It has a four button front, moderately narrow lapels, with no buttonhole, yoked shoulders, and a working belted back. The belted back is a throwback to suit designs of the 1930s. This one adds a twist to it. It is stitched down in the back, but extends further up. The ends are free, and can be used to cinch the waist in by way of button adjusters.
Chest (pit to pit): 24″
Shoulder to shoulder: 21″
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 24-1/2″
Length ( base of collar to hem): 30″
