Embroidered Vintage 70s Vietnam Tour Jacket -
This Viet-Nam tour jacket is a great piece for the collector or for someone who likes things that are bold and graphic. On the back there's a big yellow map of Saigon with each region carefully embroidered. The sleeves each have a fire-breathing dragon emblazoned on them.
This is likely a woman's jacket as evidenced by the embroidery on the chest. Finding a jacket that owned by Carol seems like a rare find. Carol must have liked this quite a bit as there's some fade and wear to the cotton. It's still a fairly deep black and there aren't any picks or pulls in the embroidery.
This piece of war memorabilia is one of our favorite areas of collecting as it speaks to the specificity of time and place. That's why we love souvenirs of all kinds. If we didn't already have a favorite in our closet, you can bet this wouldn't be hitting the site. But, since we believe that sometimes it's best to pass along treasures, you can own this jacket just buy clicking the "buy me" button below.
Very good to good. There is a small pull in the cotton poplin and some dirty residue on the right shoulder (back.) See photos. Some uniform fade and wear, mostly at cuffs and collar.
