Original Vintage 1940s/50s Gabardine Jacket

By Heller Sportswear, Made in England.


Stunning 1940s jacket, fashioned in wonderful chartreuse gabardine.

It features a ‘Swift’ metal zip, elegantly pointed collar, button cuffs, hip pockets, elastic to back waist, tartan check lining.


This jacket has lots of signs of wear including numerous holes, predominantly to fabric at back. Would benefit from a launder as a bit dirty around pockets. The front waist used to have elastic (there is some discolouration along the front where it was) but looks fine as is. Please view photos.

Priced lower according to flaws.



I would estimate this jacket to best fit a UK8 depending on required fit but please look at measurements below:

Please check neck to waist measurement with your own. This jacket may fit better on someone with a shorter measurement.
