Corduroy Belt-back jacket

http://www.ebay.com/itm/272122917001

This vintage jacket was made in Yugoslavia in the 1970s by Chess King. It has 1930s proportions and detailing, with a high button stance, moderate peak lapels, double breast pockets and a fancy pleated, belted back. Though tagged a 42, sizing is notoriously inconsistent brand to brand, so refer to the measurements. With a 44″ chest, this best fits a 40.

Shoulder to shoulder: 18-1/2″
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 25″
