For Sale:
Bespoke Slim Fit Black Blazer 36R

Will Ship To: Anywhere

This essential piece of the sartorial puzzle was designed for and made by--well, in conjunction with an old Brooklyn tailor--a guy who soon went on to work on suits at Duncan Quinn. It shows: the fit, the materials, the look--all are perfect. I hope my admittedly terrible photos give some indication of that. You'll note that I've also taken a photo of the "label": mine was the fourth of five black sport coats that he designer and tailor created; each was made to the specifications of the individual buyer.

Details:
-Italian wool (not a summer jacket, but I wear well into the spring)
-slight sheen to fabric
-two-button front enclosure
-center-back vent

The fit is the right kind of modern: the silhouette is slim but still structured (normal level of padding at shoulder); the length is a touch shorter than your average suit jacket, but that's an advantage if you pair this with more a tapered jean. Measurements below:

Pit to Pit: 18.25"
Shoulder: 16.25"
Length (hem to collar): 28"

I accidentally put a tear into the jacket at about the wrist-level of the right arm; I've included a photo of the patch-up my tailor did (it looks like a very small cross when examined closely).

I've loved this blazer for four years--only giving it up b/c I couldn't resist splurging on a Kris Van Assche blazer.

$75, shipped.

FYI: I'm 6'0" but a size 34 now, having lost 10-12 pounds (from 148 to 137) since the jacket was made for me, hence why it may appear less form-fitting in the pics than it is likely to be on you.

Whoever is wearing it in your fit pic.  I assume it's you...?  Hard to tell from the angle, but it looks like it may be 3-4 in. too short for you.
