Vintage Fashion Guild forum by the 1960s the 'G.A.' had been dropped from the Dunn and Co labels, so that gives me a vague date for it. I was quite surprised it was so early, as the colours in the tweed are more exuberant than I'd expect from a lot of menswear - there's rust and a vibrant jade green in the mix. Thinking about it, the 1920s-30s was quite a time for bold menswear, the 20s in particular. Could this jacket be from that date? I have no idea how the labels changed over the years, and a search on Google Images and Pinterest didn't help - I couldn't even find many adverts.
Anyway, I like my new jacket. I wasn't sure if it would fit me when I bought it, but figured if it looked dreadful I could always pass it on to Vix. But it fits! So sorry, Vix, you're not getting it. And neither is Mr Robot who insisted on trying it on in case he could nick it. He said it made me look like a woman from a Woody Allen film. "The one who he cheats with, or the one he cheats on?" I asked. "Or the one who's cheating on him?" He wasn't sure. But I'll take a bit of Diane Keaton style, even if it's happening accidentally.
