    This was purchased from Lance (Virtualclotheshorse) a few years ago when I thought I was going to have a winter wedding. Ended up having a summer wedding and it's probably been worn less than five times. I recently moved to a warmer climate and I see no reason to keep.

    -pure and liquid cashmere
    -peak lapels
    -ticket pocket
    -buttoned pleat
    -surgeon's sleeves
    -fully lined (black in body and Borrelli grid plaid in sleeves)
    -handwork throughout (real handwork, not machine-made visible stitching)
    -velvet collar
    -all-black (over-exposed photos so you can see details, but it's all black)

    Measurements:
    length from top of collar to bottom: 42"
    sleeve along the outside seam: 26.5"
    chest under the arms: app. 40" (this is a hanging measurement)
    back width at top of shoulder seams: 19"
    back width at narrowest point of shoulder seams: 17.5"

    For reference, I wear a 39R in jacket and have 33" sleeves.

    Of course, shipping including to CONUS and I'll steam and brush coat before shipping. I think I might have the original tags which I'll throw in.

    (Seven day bump)

    7 day + bump. (Apologies if that's not the interpretation of the current bump rules; I haven't sold much under the new regime.)
