Vintage Edwardian jacket in a rich black velveteen with low nap. This early teens style dates to c. 1911-1913, and is a shockingly sturdy piece for Titanic era fashion. The black velveteen is styled in a cutaway fashion, and has a diagonal, asymmetric closure, which is a popular detail for the period. The collar is decadent, silk faced, with decorative crocheted buttons. The cuffs of the structured sleeves have the same treatment. This jacket is fully lined with the original seafoam lining.

This jacket is clean, sturdy, and ready to wear. The lining has shredded (not shattered), however) at the upper back of the neck, along the edges the underarms, and along the sewn edges. It's still mostly intact, and not falling into dust. There is rubbing with frayed away bits at the underside of each sleeve cuff. The jacket really is sturdy and wearable, though, and looks positively fantastic on.
