1940s Slate Grey Blazer with Scalloped Edge Pockets, by Ritaville, 40in Bust
The 1940s tailoring is unrivaled, and this is a wonderful example of how something understated can still be fabulously detailed. By Ritaville, this slate grey gaberdine blazer is great addition to the wardrobe as it will go with many colours, outfits and eras. The classic silhouette is apparent with the wide shoulders, nipped waist and flare at the hip with simple notched collar and exquisite tailoring. But the best detail about this jacket is the pockets, the scalloped edges reminding me of little grey clouds. Just perfect!
