I have 2 jackets made in the 80s with big shoulders and fabulous materials. One is Italian linen with cream blue and red stripes which is the more traditional style with long lapels and tapered into the hip from the wide shoulders. The other is a printed linen jacket with the dreaded wide shoulders, contrast lapel with banded bottom buttoning under my crotch point. I love these jackets because of the fabric and now that I can fit them again, I wonder if there is any way to make these current or do I just chuck them. There is just no wearing them now with THOSE shoulders, but would love to get more life out of them. If I had bought them I wouldn’t fuss so much, but I get so attached to all the me that went into them, not to mention the mula!
