Killer! true rare vintage 1950's men's leopard faux fur tux jacket. Makers tag reads: McDowell Brothers, Oklahoma City. Features of the tux jacket are a beautifully luxurious black satin lined interior, main fabric is a plush faux leopard fur, black satin rounded tux collar, two 6 inch back vents at each bottom hem, one satin covered button front closure, two black satin covered cuff buttons on each sleeve of cuff, faux front waist pockets with black satin flaps, one large inside pocket, padded shoulders. Tag size reads 38 but I think it's larger, please go by the measurements below as sizes have changed through the decades and there is no returns if items don't fit.
Condition: Excellent vintage condition, looks like it was rarely worn, no rip, holes, stains or odors. This is a killer leopard tux jacket that will be the envy of anyone!
Color and or pattern: Black, brown, golden yellow and white. Pattern is leopard print.
Material: Medium weight, inside label reads 100% wool, except decorations. It feels like a cotton/wool blend quality leopard plush but it might be a soft 100% wool, not an itchy wool.
