My idea was to have something in between a cardigan and a jacket made, and I think this will serve the purpose nicely. The fabric is the LL's Etna (a heavy, double sided pure cashmere) where I will obviously use the grey side. The jacket will be self-lined for maximum warmth, have no vents and four buttons role to two (!).
Compared to this photo the quarters will be rounded and the collar/lapel narrowed slightly. And it will be lightly canvassed. The fitting went very nicely and will see if I can get some photos from my tailor – forgot to take any myself.
