DROP! STUNNING Cantarelli jacket in wool, cotton, and silk. c. 41, 42. NOTE UPDATED CHEST MEASUREMENT! Utterly Neopolitan, with a special "Vintaged" finish! OFFERS VERY WELCOME!

Will Ship To: Anywhere

This is absolutely GORGEOUS! This jacket is so beautiful it's hard to know where to start....

Frankly, I tend to pick from the trad side of the clothing menu, and to be honest didn't really understand the fuss about Caruso and Cantarelli... until I saw this jacket. It is, simply, stunning. The cut is wonderfully--utterly Neopolitian, with almost no construction at all; this jacket just elegantly and insouciantly lounges around on whom it clothes, never pushing its own elegance forward but simply conveying it wholesale to its wearer. Naturally, to achieve this the cut is superb, with very soft shoulders and an amazingly beautiful lapel roll that just curves upwards like a breaking wave in a way that puts all but the best 3/2 sacks from Hilton and Langrock to shame.

The fabric has a wonderful hand, and, obviously, simply a superb drape, being a blend of wool, silk, and cotton. The jacket is quarter-lined, showing off its flawless internal construction, and canvassed. It also has the ever-desirable twin vents (both hook vents), a very elegant and slim silhouette, and plenty of handwork throughout. It also boasts patch pockets! And its colourway is wonderful--a lovely dark-dusk blue with a bold navy overcheck that, despite its boldness, complements perfectly its background and both blends in and stands out.

This jacket was finished so that it appears "vintaged", rather than distressed--a process that (unlike those used by cheaper manufacturers) clearly has not adversely affected the garment at all, but merely achieved the desired look.

Naturally, this jacket was Made in Italy. It is in beautiful condition, having recently undergone a specialist dry-cleaning in Princeton.

Given its beauty, this is a steal at just $115 > 105, OR LOWER OFFER, boxed and shipped in CONUS.

Measurements:

This is tagged an EU size 54, which is a US 44 (or possibly 42 for some makers), and it is closer to a 41 or 42. Please check the measurements--and thanks for your interest!

Sleeve: 26 3/4 (+1 1/2)
Shoulder: 19
Length: 32

NB: My pictures don't come close to doing this jacket justice!

Great seller and awesome piece at a steal price.
Agree that Cantarelli is underrated, I like the exotic fabric and finishing on their garments.

Is this a size 54? I think that's what I see on the label.

Please note my updated chest measurement--there was a typo. in my original ones, which made the chest smaller than it actually is.
