Alberg red blazer with black velvet collar

Now on eBay!
This vintage jacket was made in the late ’50s or early 1960s by Alberg of Montreal.  It is a bright red flannel blazer with a black velvet collar.  Very much a hunt inspired blazer.  It has a short rear vent, one button on each sleeve, and no breast pocket.  There is some slight staining to the front of the jacket, which could probably be taken care of with a dry cleaning.  The jacket is half-lined in dark red.
Chest: 22″
