VINTAGE 30s / 40s NITE CLUB WRAPS BLACK VELVET OR VELVETEEN EVENING JACKET - PERFECT OVER EVENING CLOTHES OR WITH JEANS
A beautiful vintage 30s / 40s black velvet or velveteen bolero cropped jacket by Nite Club Wraps.
I have lightened several of the photos so the detail may be seen. The fabric is very soft and lush. The jacket has a heavier substantial feel to it - not lightweight but a medium weight. Large velvet covered button at top of jacket for closure. Fully lined with a nice fabric - rayon, maybe? Shoulder pads to give shape to the tops of the sleeves that have 4 rows of tightly sewn gathers as shown in the lightened photos. Full sleeves because of the gathers which are really lovely. Wide 3" band on end of the long sleeves so they are billowy.
Tag inside jacket which says "Coat & Suit Industry - National Recovery Board" on one side and the other side says "Consumers' Protection Law - KUF - Manufactured Under Fair Labor Standards."
The Vintage Fashion Guild site had this to say about the label and my thanks to them:
"The National Recovery Board was brought into effect in 1934, as part of the New Deal. The Coat and Suit Industry National Recovery Board was a trade organization that came about in order to assure that garments were made in accordance with the Fair Labor Standards. The label assured consumers that the garment was made by workers who were not working excessive hours and who were being paid a fair hourly wage. This label is seen from the mid-1930s into the 1960s."

We examine each item carefully and note any imperfections, but unless an item is said to be new, please don't expect it to be perfect & even some new items have small imperfections. I will always state in the description if there are any imperfections & I never do repairs but leave them to others who are better able to do them than me as that is not my expertise.
Please remember that unless specified all items have been used and will show varying signs of use or wear. We always list the obvious imperfections to the best of our abilities. However, some slight imperfections that will not show or affect wearing or using the item may slip by or not be considered worth mentioning.
Vintage nightgowns & peignoirs may be delicate so I do not wash them in the machine. I wash them in lukewarm water with Woolite or some other mild soap, then rinse & hang dripping wet in the shower.
Since these are vintage items, a bit of extra care needs to be taken with them so they remain beautiful & I definitely would never put a vintage nightgown or a peignoir in the dryer as it would ruin it.
The items are sold as we find them. We do not dry clean, launder, alter or repair vintage clothing and they should be cleaned or washed upon arrival. Please make your selection carefully & check the measurements as there is no return on clothing or other items.
