Great funky 70s longer-length jacket with big lapels and big patch pockets with flaps. It's made from a woven acrylic fabric which can be machine washed, and is fully lined.
It has two labels: one - quite hard to read now - says 'Fashionwise' and has the co-op symbol; there's also some tiny writing at the bottom which I can't decipher; the other gives washing instructions.
In generally good condition, the lining has been neatly repaired, there is a little 'pull' in the fabric on one lapel, and the slightest possible mark on one sleeve (faded, and will fade further with use); otherwise, I can't find any faults in it: it even has its spare button! (Please see the photographs for these tiny flaws.)
It's a style to be worn unbuttoned, so the size is fairly free. Approximate measurements are across the shoulders: 17 ins/43 cms; across the back under the arms: 22 ins/56 cms; length from shoulder: 23 ½ ins/60 cms; length from back of neck: 30 ins/76.5 cms.
