1970s Jean Muir Deep Navy Full Cut Suede Caped Jacket

This wonderful little jacket has a 1940s feel to it with its full, caped design. Muir made it from a deep navy suede that is very flattering and a touch softer then a black would be. Muir excelled at working with suede and leathers and I really love the pieces I find from her using either, though they are a bit harder to find. The cut of this jacket is so easy to wear. It is cut loose and easy through the body - really almost like a cape with sleeves. The sleeves have that same wide cut feel to them and each is cut extremely full and wide and at their ends they are actually a full 26" around. The neck and hem are defined with a band of matching suede and I love the little curved notches at each side. The sleeves are set into the shoulder with a series of pleats that give it those forties feel. It has no closure and just slips on over just about anything. Excellent condition. 

Unlined and slips on to wear with no closures. It has been cleaned by a leather specialist. Marked a UK vintage 10/US8 but its open cut will fit a wide range of sizes
