Unidentified Mess Jacket A scarlet cotton mess jacket with crimson silk lapels and dark green cuffs. We do not know which regiment this is.
Ideal collectable item, or a good base for a fashion or steampunk jacket.
Date: Undated. Undoubtedly pre WW2, possibly of WW1 vintage.
Sizes:Jacket approx 32/34" chest. Actual measurements are:
Chest Width (laid flat): 17"
Waist (width, laid flat): n/a, worn open.
Condition: Light wear. No rips/tears or damage other than holes to cuffs where buttons have been removed. Noticeable marks/stains to lower front right (see photo). A dry clean may improve but is unlikely to remove marks.
Items are sold as seen, and described as accurately as possible. Please note that all items are used and therefore a certain amount of wear is to be expected. Any fundamental defects/deficiences are stated. Many items have been tailored and therefore sizes may be approximate.
