Impressive men's reversible costume jacket in ivory on one side, red on the other. Feels like a cotton duck or twill on the ivory side, also feels vaguely weatherproofed. The red side feels like cotton blend and is lightly ribbed. Has buttons that look like celluloid or bakelite to me. When its reversed, the red side has a black velvet collar. Both sides have pockets. My best guess as to age of this is an older 40s or 50s. To me it has a vaguely old west style, but really would work for a wide variety of looks.  Label Reads: none.
This comes from an enormous collection of Old Hollywood Movie Costumes I was lucky enough to stumble across. More about those later after the measurements so please read on...
Great vintage condition. This was clearly used for the purpose it was intended.. Its stained on the outside in several places though most of it is still unmarked. Thats it really. Other than that its still in fabulous shape and very wearable.  Please note that all items in this Costume section may have minor other flaws ( or example; missing snaps, small areas of loose seams, pinholes, etc..)  that I have not listed as its just not possible to find and or list every minor thing as these have lived quite a life! Priced accordingly, As Is and Final Sale.
Measurements taken lying flat. Doubled at bust, waist and hip.
Shoulder to shoulder: 16"
Bust ( or chest): 44" 
Waist: 46"
Hip: free
Shoulder to bottom hem: 39"
PLEASE READ: I acquired an absolutely enormous collection of Hollywood movie costumes. Ranging across the board from Paramount, Universal, Unified Costumers and more. The last known film much of the items were used in was Lawrence of Arabia but we have no way of knowing which ones and there are others from other films. Most likely they were used on extras or smaller roles, I have not come across anything I can pinpoint to a major name from that film.  Many of these were made much earlier, and I have found dates written on tags within from as early as the 1940s, though I believe some are even earlier.  I have given as much information as I can about each item in the listing. Much has been lost to time however.  That said, these are an extraordinary piece of movie history and I'm honored to be a part of it all.
Please note: These are vintage, preworn and/or preloved items. I do my best to list any issues, but signs of wear should be expected. Please feel free to convo me with any questions. I'm truly happy to help in any way possible and I'm always up for a chat. Any accessories shown, including crinolines, are for display only, not included unless otherwise stated.
