I do have another question about the jacket. Do you think the lower gouge makes it look really dated or is it still in the realm of classic?
Thanks again...other comments are welcome......I'll make sure I ask what you guys think again before I jump into a purchase like this again.
First off, you did make a good call about the seller- he posts here as Carlo and is very well regarded. Owns Carlo Franco, which makes very nice shirts and ties.
As far as the jacket goes, on closer inspection, the gorge isn't really that bad. I do find the cloth a bit dating, but I think that the overall fit and quality of the garment will override that. (Also, it's probably worth restating that gorge and button stance are different things. The Kiton 3-roll-2 buttoning seems to be rather constant across the decades.)
