1940s Brazilian herringbone tweed jacket

This vintage jacket was made in Brazil and sold in the late 1940s-1950s. It is made of a bold herringbone tweed material, with a brown mouton collar. It was sold by Alfred – Kalil Sehbe S.A. – Camia Do Sul. European influence is also visible in the hardware. Though made in Brazil, the Astro brand zipper (with interesting stapled grommet style male end) does up on the left track as opposed to the American way of having it on the right. The jacket has a quilted lining.

Chest (pit to pit): 25″ (doubled = 50″)
Shoulder to shoulder: 20″
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff):24″
Length (base of collar to hem) 26-1/2″
