Up for your purchase consideration is a c1980's vintage CHANEL Black Wool Suit Jacket! This stunning jacket is a light-med weight textured wool with black fur trim all around the bottom, the neck, up and down the front closure, and above the pockets and the sleeves wrist and cuffs. The jacket is also trimmed with a silky like trim. The jacket has a slightly tailored fit with open darts at the back shoulders. The neckline has a "V" shape and there are no lapels. This is "The Classic CHANEL Jacket" with a sophisticated and funky spin! There are no tags on this suit jacket that I can find.
This is a preowned garment that is in very, very good vintage condition. It appears to have been carefully worn and properly cared for. A few items require mentioning. There are NO Labels/Tags on this jacket that I can find. There is nothing that informs me of the fabric content or is there the famous CHANEL label. There is NO signature trademark chain around the bottom. The jacket is fully lined with a black silky satin lining. There are NO logos on the lining either. The only thing that indicates that this is possible a CHANEL garment are the buttons. There are (11) eleven of them. Three (3)buttons grace each of the sleeves and another five (5) down the front. The chest pockets and the waist pockets have no buttons.
The skirt for this jacket is no longer available. However, I am showing it with a vintage ST JOHN Marie Grey santana knit jacket. This lovely skirt is for sale in a separate offering.
This jacket was acquired from an estate of a well traveled and designer conscious woman! I have another CHANEL suit of hers that I will be posting later this month. That suit has all of the logo's and trademarks of this great Haute Couture House of CHANEL! Although this gives some provenance surrounding this suit; because of the non evidence of the tags and labels this jacket is being sold under the assumption that it is indeed CHANEL. However, I cannot not make a guarantee. The buttons have the CC gold tone logo on black enamel disks, under glass. With that said along with the fact that the skirt is no longer available, I have priced it lower that my online and other e-store counterparts. Why not check around the 'net and see. Soooooooo whomever you are--someone is going to get a great deal!

Welcome to OLD THINGS ARE NEW! I sell pre-owned women's designer and vintage fashions on eBay and Etsy also. Many of my items are found in high end boutiques and department stores and my vintage garments are sold at the local Vintage Clothing Shows. I mainly sell store returns and others that have been purchased at auctions and estate sales.
Quiet a few of my garments are new and they will have the original retail price tags as well as any mark down pricing. In most instances my garments may have signs of shelf life i.e. handling as customers have tried on them on in the retail stores. Others might have manufacturing/distribution flaws such as loose threads, missing beads, buttons or sequins, a small snag etc. However, never will they make the item unattractive; in any event I will always do my best to describe them and inform you. With that said, no matter what; the selections are tasteful, classic, sophisticated, beautiful to wear and to behold! YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED.
If you are shopping for conditions that are perfect and flawlessness or you require a brand new garment that has never been tried on or handled before, then this is not the item for you. I suggest that you purchase your items directly from a retail establishment. If clean and recycled bubble wrap, tissue and shipping supplies bother you--then this is not the e-store for you. Your purchase is a Final Sale and it is sold "AS-IS. There are no refunds nor exchanges.
PLEASE NOTE: Free Shipping and Handling only pertain to U.S. Addresses Only! International buyers please contact me first--NO exceptions please as I only ship INTERNATIONAL PRIORITY MAIL. I will ship within seven (7) business days of your cleared payment. If that falls on a Sunday then I will ship the next day Monday. Please keep this in mind. Thank you for stopping by and happy shopping!!
