I got this jacket a little over 8 years ago when I was just getting started selling on eBay. I found it at a thrift shop in New York City, along with a few suits from H. Huntsman from the same donor. I've long since sold the suits, but this jacket was unlike anything I have ever seen, so I kept it for myself. Since I've had it, I only wore it 1 time - and to tell you the truth, I was too worried about damaging it to enjoy the experience.

The quality of this jacket is unbelievalbe...far superior to anything I have seen from any Savile Row tailor and definitely better than Brioni, Kiton, etc. It is completely hand made. All of the main seams are overlapped with hand stitches. The entile lining, which is made of beautiful silk, was put in by hand...even the main side seams of the lining were hand stitched together. The buttonholes were immaculately sewn with small & tight stitches...the best I have seen.

The jacket was tailored in 1994 by G. Cristobal of Madrid, Spain. It measures Size 42 Regular. It is a 2 button model with no vents. The fabric is a medium-lightweight cashmere - Extremely fine quality. Colors include light tan, pale gold, a light shade of copper, deep royal blue, olive green & 2 shades of red. The shoulders are evenly padded...not too much padding...not too little...I don't think anyone would complain.

Below are the measurements:

Shoulders at widest point - 19.5"

Width across chest - 23"

Width across waist - 21.5"

Length from bottom of collar - 30"

Sleeve from top of shoulder - 25"

Sleeve inseam - 16.75"

Lapel at widest point - 3 7/8"

Top buttonhole to bottom of jacket - 13 1/8"

Condition - AS NEW....PERFECT...FLAWLESS...ABSOLUTELY MINT!!!

Asking price - $1100.00

Based on what I've seen out there, you would need to pay over $7000 to get a jacket of this quality made in today's market, but it would probably be difficult to find a tailor who is capable and willing to do the work.
