DROP! LAST ONE! EXQUISITE Bespoke Jacket (c.44) in Loro Piana Zealander fabric, Cashmere, and wool. Handwork everywhere, surgeon's cuffs, the works!

Will Ship To: Anywhere

I've been asked by a rather distinguished acquaintance to find new homes for a considerable amount of the clothing that he no longer wears owing to weight gain and retirement... and what better place to begin that here? He's aristocratically disinclined to try to "maximum return" on these items, and he dislikes ebay, so they're being passed on here in the hope and expectation that they will find new homes with people who appreciate fine clothing.

These jackets are exquisite! They are all bespoke, made by Charles, and boast simply lashings of handwork; the buttonholes are all hand-sewn, the lapels and edgings feature pick-stitching throughout, as do the interior seams, the pocket flaps, the collar...... and so on. The cuffs are, of course, fully functional. All of these jackets are fully lined, and they all feature symmetrical sets of interior pockets: The original owner was training himself to be ambidextrous so that he could fully utilize the custom-made pair of left and right-handed double-barreled shotguns that he had had made for him at Purdey's of London in the late 1980s, and which he used to hunt gamebirds in Scotland each year. The bottom two pockets are sealable with Velcro, as the owner disliked interior zippers in anything but leather jackets and he kept his grandfather's pocket watch (from the First World War) on him at all times, and wanted a safe place to keep it. All of the jackets are ventless, as he believed that (twin) vented jackets were only useful for persons who rode (horses) frequently, and he disliked single vents.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THESE ARE THE LAST OF THESE JACKETS THAT I HAVE AVAILABLE, AND THAT NO MORE WILL BE COMING! No. 4 is STILL AVAILABLE!


And if you've purchased one from me, please do feel free to share the compliments on it publicly that you passed along by email--unlike their original owner, I'm not an aristocrat, and so I'm not shy of positive publicity!

Prices are, for the reason offered above, low to begin with, but offers are still very welcome.

PLEASE NOTE THAT MY PICTURES DON'T DO THE BEAUTY OF THESE JACKETS JUSTICE AT ALL!
