This is a classic true vintage 1940s women's suit jacket/blazer, and it is pretty spectacular.

It was likely part of a 40s suit skirt set, but we think it will work quite well with a black or gray skirt -- or especially a pair of black trousers a la Katharine Hepburn.

The piece is a wonderful representation of wartime fashion, as the focus is more on the cut/fit, and not on bold colors. It's truly Old Hollywood style, and a fitted blazer looks flattering on everyone.

There are numerous details to love about this piece. It comes with a lovely pink silk lining for a pop of color without being too showy, and it has a beautiful black velvet collar and cuffs.

The buttons give the jacket a kind of military look to it as well, making it easy to recognize as World War Two fashion.

It was made for Raphael Weill's famed San Francisco department store The White House by the Duchess Royal brand. The store was especially well known for its emulation of French architecture -- and French fashion.
