Immaculately Tailored 2003 Alexander McQueen Ivory Jacket w Silk Satin Lapels
This jacket is dated to 2003 and showcases McQueens strong tailoring background and master cutting abilities. This is a a piece that would have been produced for retail and was not shown on the runway. Something that you see often with his work during this period as his popularity was skyrocketing and demand for his work was booming. The jacket is cut with a nod to a traditional men's tuxedo. I love that it has been made out of a beautiful ivory colour instead of a classic black. This gives it an unexpected bit of freshness and lightness to the very refined cut. The shoulder are sharp with just a tiny turn up at their peaks. Each sleeve is cut on a slight curve in the proper manner of tailoring a sleeve and each has a row of four buttons to finish them at their ends. The blazer is shaped with a female body in mind and is cut in at the waist for shape. A matching cream coloured silk satin lapel curves around the neckline and runs down to the waist. To close the jacket there is an attached pair of French cuff style buttons that you put through proper buttonholes on either side. Flap pockets sit on each hip and a there is a single breast pocket. The inside is lined in a cream silk satin that matches the lapel. The workmanship is meticulous and it is a beautiful jacket. Excellent condition
