This jacket is a wonderful example of Bonnie Cashin and Sills sportswear designs, simple, sophisticated, and timeless. Made of a light tan cotton and trimmed in leather. Bomber style, wide tall collar, long sleeves, boxy silhouette with elastic waist band. Accompanied with Cashin's signature brass turn locks down the front and at the pockets. Unisex styling and light weight. Fully lined brown gingham plaid pattern (still used by Coach as a signature fabric) with Bonnie Cashin Sills label circa early 1960s.

Condition: This item is in wonderful vintage pre-owned pre-owned, only flaws to note are some faint marks on the inside collar and a few marks on the body of the jacket. (These flaws are so minor and unseen when worn. I have tried to photograph them in natural light). Brass closures are all tight and sturdy and have original patina. No signs of wear to the leather trim. All Cashin items where acquired from an owner of a large collection of similar Cashin pieces and stored in cotton bags in a cedar closet. Now you can own a piece of fashion history! Any variations of color or texture if present are due to the natural hides or textiles not due to wear or damage.

A little bit about Bonnie Cashin, she was one of the most innovative designers America ever produced. She was among the first designers to create and popularize what was a uniquely American approach to clothing—sportswear. One of a handful of women to make significant and lasting contributions to American fashion design, Cashin’s collaboration with Sills was when she had her greatest impact and when her signature style solidified. They pioneered the use of leather in high fashion clothing, and Cashin introduced the concept of layering clothing as well as brass hardware for garment closures. She later used the signature hardware when designing Coach handbags. Cashin won three Coty American Fashion Critics’ Awards for design, two of them while working with Sills. - Costume & Textiles Department The Ohio State University
