There’s nothing quite like doing what you really love. And we love vintage, so when this vintage velvet blazer came across the radar, it was a terrific day. It’s a super lux and plush velvet with a fantastic designer and tailor. Gorgeous buttons, super stylish lining, fully canvassed, I could go on and on. Lanvin designed the jacket and for some reason, they often used their linings as the only logo with no other label in men’s suiting in the 50s and 60s. The best part of this vintage piece though for me is the the tailor. We were able to piece together a history of the jacket’s tailor who was a survivor of the holocaust, and in Auschwitz at age 11. Here’s the label.
Side note: We have a vintage 60s Lanvin sharkskin suit with Lanvin lining and no label as well. If you have any information as to the reason behind vintage Lanvin suits with no labels, please leave a comment!
