FS: NWT 44R Samuelsohn wool/cashmere blend navy herringbone blazer

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
For sale is a BNWT Samuelsohn "Austin" model 44R navy herringbone jacket. This was recently picked up for an SF member but unfortunately he declined to purchase it, so it goes to the first person to PM me and pay. The details: fully canvassed, two button front, dual vents, four buttons on each sleeve. 90% wool, 10% cashmere. Very soft. Made in Canada. Chest across under the arm: 23” Chest at the top button: 22 Shoulders: 20” Length from bottom of collar to end: 31” Sleeves: 25.5 Color: dark navy herringbone. Viewed up close the color looks like like black and blue with subtle brown flecks (see last two pictures), but from more than a foot or two away it looks like a plain navy herringbone pattern. Price is $225 including shipping anywhere in North America. Retail on these jackets is about $800; STP is currently selling Samuelsohn jackets for $350 and up.

This is a really great jacket; high quality and very versatile. I have a couple of Sammy sportcoats in this 2B Austin cut and the lapel roll is truly beautiful (too bad these pics aren't too good).

I like the fabric, but haven't ever tried a Sammy on. a 46 inch chest with a 44 waist seems a little boxy - how does it translate when worn? I'm guessing this is a Fall/Winter jacket by the heft of the fabric. Can you elaborate on the weight of the piece as well as the cut? Lastly - I take it from the tag the fabric was made in italy- but the jacket in Canada?

Correct.

I put up a couple more pictures (taken with flash this time) to give you a better idea of the jacket.

I would call it three-season -- I probably wouldn't wear it in the summer, but its principally fall/winter.

The cut doesn't seem boxy but not slim either -- medium. EL72 could probably offer more insightful comment.

I'm not the seller but will try to help since I own a few Samuelosohns in this Austin cut. Sammy make all kinds of coats from sacks to very short/fitted Italian style jackets. I am a 38R in pretty much all RTW brands (Zegna, Canali, Isiai...) and I don't find these too boxy. They are not slim jackets but do have some degree of waist suppression.

46" chest on 44R jacket is relatively trim. I'm not sure what to make of the waist measurement because they are notoriously difficult to accurately report. That said, 44" on a 44R jacket is also not boxy.

All Samuelsohns are made in Canada (Montreal) and they use fabric from lots of places. I'll let the seller comment on the fabric's weight but I believe it's a fall/winter coat.

Thanks for the info guys. This looks to be a little on the big side for me (normally a 42R for anything but really slim cuts) but maybe not so much that I couldn't have it taken in. I'm trying to work a deal on a kiton right now, if it falls through I'll send you a PM.
