@Poli: I think a jacket is rather a "saco" or a "chaqueta". And "esmokin"/"smoking" is a tuxedo.

Btw., "gaván" should rather be "gabán".

En chile, jacket = chaqueta o vestón, pero sabemos del uso de la palabra saco.

Chaquetón es un abrigo corto.

Sorry, didn't know. In Spain we say bolso. When we use bolsa we mean: bolsa de plástico, bolsa de la compra.
