Yes, and I have the official picture as proof! Great item for the aviation collector or PAN AM collector. This uniform and key are part of American Aviation history. Please inquire about other PAN AM collectibles I have and if you have any questions please submit them. Thank you. Evan-Picone Career Apparel Angelica is on the label of the jacket. E. Picone re-designed the uniforms back in the early 1970's for PAN AM. This is a fine quality PAN AM signature blue uniform with attached white bodice crepe de chine body, to the skirt, and a lined jacket. The official gold plated or brass shiny buttons with the signature globe design on them by Waterbury Co. Inc. Conn.(CT) engraved on the reverse of the buttons are on the front and cuffs. The lining of the jacket is a matching blue crepe de chine and the same blue fabric lines the skirt. Jacket is Size 6 Petite, Dress/Skirt is Size 10 Average. Flight Attendants were allowed to order custom sized skirts/dresses and jackets upon being fitted in Miami, FL for their optimal size uniform. This uniform is in very good to excellent condition. No wear spots. T is a tiny minor coffee? spot on the back of the lower jacket. Not very noticeable. Otherwise, the uniform looks new to me. Very well made with overstiched seams and blue top stitching on jacket. It has been stored in a heavy plastic garment bag for many years in a bedroom closet, not the attic or basement. This uniform dates from when PAN AM was the biggest and best international airline in the world and was welcomed, admired, and respected in all of the countries in 6 continents it flew to back in the day. This is from the era when people actually "dressed up" and put on their "Sunday bests" when flying! First Class service was like dining in a 4+ Star restaurant with heavy silverplate flatware, white cotton linens, crystal glassware, and fabulous cooked to order food! Too bad PAN AM is still not in operation. Shipping: I will ship within 2 days of funds received and cleared. I will ship FedEx if the cost is lower for non-breakables.
