This gorgeous 1940s jacket is a warm, unlined woven wool in the richest hue - it's burgundy, but with the bold warmth of a fuchsia. The Tribly Briefs line, from what I was able to find of them, was a line made for women 5'3" and under, so if you have a petite height, this jacket may be a perfect fit! The standout feature is the chest pocket on left, made of perma-pleated, self-fabric leaves and a bow. It closes at the waist with a single large self-fabric covered button. A really smart piece over dress, or paired with skirt or slacks!
The skirt shown is available here:
Label: Tribly Briefs, Fabric by Pacific Mills/ Original Design, US Patent Office, Pat Pend
Condition: Good plus, as is with repairs.
This jacket is clean and ready to wear. There are two existing self-fabric patches to moth holes, one at the far left to the left of the leaf pocket (see pocket image) and one at the far left above the hip. The fabric was taken from the selvage, leaving a missing piece (see photo.) I've mended three other small holes I've found. Wears beautifully and is sturdy and fresh. Mannequin photos are washed out, but still trued to color.
