Scope and content

Beige boating jacket with blue and red stripes. The stripes are in sets of three, one red either side of a wide blue. These stripes are spaced across the fabric, around 15cm apart. The jacket has a pocket on each side, created with facings. The top facing becomes the pocket bag on the inside, and is top stitched to the main body creating the visual of a patch pocket, with the patch stitched on the inside of the jacket. There is a patch pocket on the front left chest with the Sidney Sussex College coat of arms. The centre front and the sleeve have two buttons each, engraved on the back with C&J Weldon London. The jacket is unlined, the back seam finished with extra seam allowance which folds back on itself and is hand stitched and pressed, resembling a lapped seam. The sleeve holes are bound and the sleeve seams are raw. Made in UK.
