Boardwalk … More Long & Skinny for Struttin’ on the Promenade

This jacket’s from approx the same time in the 1920s than the one I posted before (http://wp.me/s2K0Ej-skinny). It has several features (skinny long fit, narrow lapels and tight button placement) common with the other one instead of the narrow natural shoulders it has very heavily padded ones – Who says men’s fashion isn’t faddish? This one is made by that venerable old American company Hart, Schaffner and Marx and is extremely well made in very sober dark blue serge material. Enjoy, and ignore the cat fluff on the back:
