I am selling another Sartoria Partenopea garment, this time a spring/summer sportcoat. This is an absolutely gorgeous jacket, a real masterpiece of Neapolitan tailoring. For those who don't know, Sartoria Partenopea is an Italian maker that has been compared favorably to Kiton. I think the fabric may not be on the Kiton level, but the quality of manufacturing here is outstanding, easily equal to Brioni and probably better than Isaia. I'll post pictures and full measurements tonight, but here are the details: Silk (37%)/linen (33%)/wool (30%) blend, slubbed orange/peach/gold color jacket. The color, a solid color with a little light variation in the slubs, is a little hard to describe. It's a great spring/summer color, but not for the sartorially meek. Then again, I don't think any of the meek know about Partenopea. It's a three-roll-2 button, single breasted jacket with three open patch pockets. It's tagged a 50R, drop 7. The sleeves are unfinished and basted closed, ready for your tailor to put in working button holes. The buttons are included. All in all this is an awesome coat. It's marked as MSRP $1050, which I think is almost certainly lower than its original retail price. Partenopea is a bit of a secret, and certainly a deal. The jacket is yours for $400, including free UPS ground shipping in the US. I can ship internationally but will add the cost onto the total. EDIT: I forgot to mention that this is fully canavased with a lot of handfinishing. That basically goes without saying, but for those who haven't seen SP's work, I thought I'd add it.
