This is an original CHANEL jacket from the 2005 in a safari style cut, in the finest dove grey pure wool.
The exaggerated long lapel is incredibly elegant, and tapers to a sharply cut front of four pocket features, two false pockets at the bottom, and two functional pockets at the breast. All have classic Chanel coin buttons, with a perfect central line ending in vents at the bottom.
This jacket is non closing, and hangs perfectly sharp to the body. Generous cut sleeves end at a cuff with three gold coin buttons. The lining of the jacket is matching dove grey silk, hand finished stitching at every seam.
The Chanel label is well attached with hand written details by the maker below.
The condition of this vintage Chanel is excellent. There are no marks or stains, no holes to the wool whatsoever, and no snags or blips.
All buttons are present, and all in great untarnished condition. Lining is in good order. Label is in good order, the handwritten tag shows some discolouration. There is one tiny hole in the lining near the sleeve the size of a pin head, barely worth mentioning.
