This beautiful handsewn suede jacket lives on my manikin (besides she's much smaller than me) so I can enjoy this old 70's treasure everyday. I recently found it at a Goodwill for $20. It is lined and beautifully made w/pinked detail edges on yoke, collar and pockets. White metal eyelets give a nice contrast. Satin label inside says FRANCA Hecho en Mexico, D.F. 30 years ago I had another one not nearly as nice but I sold it long ago. I like fringe - cowboy and hippy styles and have about 60 old 1940-70's sewing patterns that I've used in designs for myself and customers.
I added the last picture of me 1989 - tram to mountain above Palm Springs. LOVED this suede fringe jacket and I STILL wear sneakers like these....
