Doncaster was one of the first direct-sales clothing operation in the US, having been founded in 1931. They sold high-end women's clothing and accessories online and via direct sales through a network of “consultants” who sold goods out of their homes and at parties. It closed forever in 2018 after 87 years in business. I bought my first Doncaster jacket in red boiled wool in the late 70s and it cost a small fortune. I still have it. So when I saw this gorgeous jacket from Doncaster Silks offered a my local consignment store, I couldn't resist, even though it's a few sizes too small for me. This jacket is definitely vintage, with sewn-in shoulder pads and a nubby feel from the woven silk threads. There are at least three silk textures, from smooth beige to thicker black and ivory crisscrossing strands. Smooth, traditional silk lining. Two 1.5" open pleats under the "pocket" tabs and one in the back. Gorgeous statement buttons - three to close the jacket, one on each front "pocket" tab and one each at the wrists. Bust: (pit to pit, flat, across the back) 19" Waist: (seam to seam, flat, across the back) 18" Sleeve: (shoulder seam to wrist) 22" Length: (shoulder to hem) 19" There are no stains, tears, seam issues or odors, but there are a very few "fuzzy" places where the thicker strands have been rubbed a bit, and a few visible thread ends which can be trimmed or left as is to preserve the vintage-ness.
