This is a STUNNING jacket! Cut from an Italian-milled fabric that's a blend of wool (95%) and cashmere (5%) the drape and hand of the fabric are beautiful. It's also lightweight enough to serve as a summer office jacket, and could readily carry you through both Fall and Spring. The quality of construction of the jacket fully lives up to the quality of its cloth; it is fully canvassed and beautifully cut; it is unvented, in Flusser-approved style, and features both three...
