Great Vietnam souvenir jacket, vintage from the 1960's. I believe this is made from cotton with a silk lining. The lining has a couple small holes on the inside, does not affect the jacket at all. The size is rather small, the measurement across the shoulders seam to seam is 19". The length from the bottom of the jacket to the top of the zipper is also 19". The neck diameter is about 14", the length fropm the bottom of the collar on the back to the bottom of the jacket is 23". The sleeve length from the underarm seam to the end of the sleeve is 17". The front and back are embroidered, on the front with a tiger and a flower, on the back a map of Vietnam with place names listed. T is some fraying to the silk thread from the Danang part to the Hue part of the Vietnam map and would probably have to be repaired.
The bottom tooth of the zipper is missing, so it's kind of hard to get started but works fine once it's in.
Color is BEAUTIFUL as this was stored for decades. My guess is that this is a SMALL size, but you can take the meausrementsa for what they are worth. Be happy to measure anything else, just ask.
