No idea. It's listed as "lama" so I marked it as such.

It is soft but has a bit of heft to it and drapes very well. It has guts, so the minimal lining feels like it wouldn't be a problem with drape.

No, they are different critters, so I'm sure they are made of llama wool as stated. I was simply suggesting that llama fabric might be similar to alpaca. RJman mentioned in another thread that he had a llama coat, and he also just took possession of an alpaca sportcoat. He might be able to compare the two. I have alpaca sportcoats, but no experience with llama.

Gotcha. I have limited experience with alpaca.

My experience with llama (limited to two garments) is that it adds a touch of roughness and thickness (for lack of a better word...different than weight) to a wool blend, much like alpaca. Like alpaca (and like wool, for that matter), I believe the base material can be woven a number of different ways, so I have some alpaca blends so soft as to be almost mistaken for a cashmere and others rough enough to be a heavy tweed. My guess is that, in this case, it would make the jacket a touch more rustic.

Okay everyone. Last day on the Styleforum exclusive. These are going to be made available far and wide tomorrow afternoon, so get them while you can.

The remainder (minus a few) are up on eBay with low starting bids and still excellent buy-it-now prices:

It looks like the 46/56 have not shown up yet on that page. Here they are:

Are you measuring length from the top or bottom of the collar in your Ebay listings?

Bottom of collar, as I believe is the standard way to measure length.

Fiddlesticks, just missed this. Ebaying I go...

All ebay listings have been revised for more easy viewing of the pictures. You learn something new every day, and apparently today's lesson is that the picture viewer stinks, and makes it difficult to see large images.

Just a little over two days left on this. A number of the jackets have sold, a few have bids, and the rest loaded with watchers.

wish I wasn't balls deep in other purchases already so I can jump on one of these. Their are a couple of beautiful 40's that I am shocked have not been BIN'd. Hopefully, you sell some for more than your BIN price, as sometimes happens on ebay

Can't wait to get mine! And damn those working buttonholes on the 38R in lama wool. 1-1.5" shorter and I'd get it too.

I think every 38/slim 40 on StyleForum is looking at that jacket and being foiled by the arm length. I'm in that club.
