40s Crop Jacket – Ocean check wool
Strong shoulders, an elegant shawl collar and diagonal patch details perfectly capture this iconic look. The early ’40s boxy shape places a lot of emphasis on the upper body and we put a lot of effort into creating the perfect shoulder shape. This resulted in a significant shoulder pad and roll with three tucks into the sleeve head. The shawl collar softens the style by adding that extra detail. The non-functional diagonal flaps below the shoulder emulate a pocket and are hand finished. Fully lined
We have been wanting to make this fabulous new 1940s style crop jacket since a similar style was spotted in a photograph from 1941. The ‘crop’ or bolero jacket captures the boxy styles of the early ’40s perfectly and has been created here in a stunning blue/green check 100% wool from Yorkshire Mill – Abraham Moons.
