Men's Raffaele Caruso Black Label- Grey Wool Angora Ashgora Sport Coat- 54IT/44US

Excellent condition

This is a beautiful piece with a soft hand; an excellent pick up for Fall/Winter wear.
 
Raffaele Caruso makes extraordinary suits with beautiful handwork for their own signature line (from which this coat comes) as well as a number of the top big name brands (Ralph Lauren Black Label, Cifonelli, Smalto, etc.). They are not widely distributed in the US but they are one of the handful of tailored menswear connoisseurs' "go-to" brands for extremely high quality, beautiful clothing that doesn't carry the cost of sponsoring James Bond movies in their pricing. Nonetheless, new sport coats are not inexpensive-- ranging around $1,600. In short-- this is a great deal on a beautiful coat that I wish I could keep, but I bought it on eBay, and it's just too big for me!!!

Adriano Dirnelli describes Caruso:
 
Raffaele Caruso — This is probably the best mass-produced suitmaker in the world, manufacturing for the all the best brands globally. I have Caruso suits from a dozen different brands, and they are all stunning. When I walk into a menswear store anywhere in the world, and when one suit on display looks and feels better than all the others, I usually discover on closer inspection of the inside label that it was made by Caruso. To be that good, consistently accross so many different brands, is a major achievement of industrialization succesfully applied to handmade garments.
 
 
The good people on Ask Andy are similarly enthusiastic:
 
I received the Caruso suit and special sport jacket and  they are the two most beautiful garments I’ve ever seen!
