This jacket is in very good vintage condition. It can be worn straight away! There are a few minor issues, which are not a huge deal, and does not affect wearability of the garment. There are a few small stains, see photo for the largest one which is located on the back of the left arm. There is dirt/wear on the back collar, and some fading on the shoulders - most likely from being hung near a shop window. The lining seam on the right armpit is splitting as well, see photo. You will also find random "picking" of threads in some places, again, not very noticeable.
Again, this garment is 70+ years old, so none of these issues are really out of the ordinary for something of this age. The seams are very much intact, and lining is attached well, with the exception of the right armpit, as stated.
It should also be noted, I have NOT laundered this jacket. So it is very possible some of the issues (stains, picking) will be resolved with a proper cleaning and pressing.
There are no tags to this jacket. It feels to be wool gabardine. There is NO stretch at all to this jacket, so please note measurements carefully.

Sleeves: 24.5" Shoulder: 6.5" Total: 31"
