1930s British Herringbone Sportscoat

This jacket is made of the most amazing soft herringbone fabric in brown tones with white and orange stripes breaking up the herringbone. The jacket probably dates to the early 1930s. The shape of the lightly padded shoulders and only very slightly displaced shoulder seams are indicative. There are two small pretty unremarkable cutters labels – one inside the interior breast pocket, the other in one of the hip pockets. Seems like this was probably quite a cheap/utility type jacket. At some point it made its way into the BBC Bristol wardrobe. The buttons are beautiful!
