Vintage Thai Silk Jacket with Embroidery & Coin Buttons


$ 120.00

  • Product Description

This is a striking silk jacket of Thai origin featuring quality woven silk.  The jacket has Chinese 16 brass coin buttons affixed to the opening, eight coins on either side.  I’m not a Thai silk expert, but I think that the jacket is made of a mix of “praewa” silk and “mudmee” silk.  It is made with mid-forearm length sleeves and has a contrasting patch pocket at either bottom side. Otherwise, this silk jacket is quite simple, yet very elegant, a beautiful piece to dress up an outfit. 

Age: Uncertain, but probably 1960s, given the look of the size label

Sizing: Size 42 is indicated, and although this silk jacket should fit a medium size, please rely on the following measurements for fit:

Shoulders:  16” across seam-to-seam

Sleeves:  18” long from the shoulder seam

Sleeve Inseam:  17” long

Bust:  38” around, taken under the arms, with a normal gap at the opening

Waist: 36” around

Length:  27”

Condition: It is in clean condition with no wear, tear, soiling, staining or odour.  This has been very well taken care of over the years.

Very rich looking silk jacket - Thailand has a long tradition of quality silk weaving!
