This gorgeous jacket was inherited from its owner’s Mother and has had a full life over several decades.  Unsurprisingly, age has taken its toll.  The lining had disintegrated around the armholes and at the hem and all but one button had vanished.  As both the fabric and construction were of good quality and the outer was still in good nick, restoration was well worth undertaking.

The lining was removed and replaced with new in the same colour.  The sleeves were relined with specialist sleeve lining.  This is harder wearing, to take into account activity from writing, driving, and bag carrying.  As the jacket is a sage green wool similar to that used in uniforms, the buttons were replaced with vintage buttons of the WW2 era.  I hope it has many good decades ahead.

Relining prices from £70, for men and women.,
