For sale is a gorgeous navy Hickey Freeman blazer in their "Madison" cut. The blazer is 10% Cashmere/90% Wool, with metal buttons, single vent, three pockets on the front, three inside plus a pen pocket.

There's no logical reason why those 'space bags' should reduce the overall volume of clothes when packed. When you fill a suitcase to the brim and force it closed, you are forcing any extra air out of the way to compress the clothes down, and unless you are packing a down parka or pillows, the minuscule amount of space you save through compression comes at the cost of the thick plastic used to construct those things, and the reduced amount of flexibility in packing. ...
