Arthur Chapnik menswear

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Last week I picked up an Arthur Chapnik blazer in a nice brown and black weave. It was second hand but in great shape and seemed to fit. Made in Italy, etc. Then I discovered it was short size, and looked it, alas. I've googled the guy and searched him on ebay. All I find is some womenswear sold at Neiman-Marcus. Does anyone know anything more, for ex., where the men's stuff is sold?

The jacket is relatively contemporary, with a three button closure, narrow lapel starting above the third button. What is a "#2 or #4 make jacket"? Please explain.

There used to be a numbering system based on the number of man hours it took to make a jacket in a factory. A #6 garment had the most hand work. A #4 had less hand work A #2 still had a canvas front but was mostly made by machine. An x make was a fused garment. Carl
