This suit jacket could be the clue we need to find him.

I doubt it's a suit jacket. I'm changing the buttons from the super dark brown horn to something lighter to make sure no one makes the mistake you're making.

Even so, it will look just fine as an odd jacket with different buttons.

I'm not great at spotting hand-made buttonholes, so I couldn't really tell you if those were. They look pretty clean, and Oxxford does great buttonholes. From what I understand, it also finishes the backside of buttonholes, which could account for the neatness on the reverse side as well. Finally, I'm getting an Oxxford vibe from the angle of the lapel hole, another thing for which the company is a bit distinctive. I really have no clue. This is just a guess based on a few things.

Wow. What is shocking here is that you would take the time to answer so thoroughly for Moo.

Moo, is it center vent? If it is, don't bother changing the buttons, just sell it. Trust me.

It is. I don't mind center vent. Have another with it and it works fine.

Hmm. Whether it is in fact a suit jacket, it appears to be one--particularly if the pockets are flapped or besom.

This is probably the last coat to originate from the Boston store. It was accidentally sent to New York with their inventory as the store was quickly closed. I was visiting the city the following week and the finished jacket was delivered to my hotel.

Meh. It'll look fine as an odd jacket.
