    Vicuna is the rarest and most expensive material in the world
    historically used for Presidents and royalty. Suits and coats
    made using Vicuna wool range in price between $15-$50 thousand
    dollars. See below for more details on this incredible material.

    You will be the best dressed man in the room wearing what
    kings have worn for centuries.

    This jacket was made in Hong Kong using a blend of Vicuna wool
    and cashmere.

    Jacket has a two button front, is fully lined and center vented.
    The overall condition is excellent.

    Fits most closely to a 46 Regular, but is not labeled
    so please rely on measurements for best fit.


    Measurements:

    20" top of shoulders, 24" pit to pit, 24" sleeves with 2" to let out,
    30.5" length from bottom of collar.

    USA only


    Vicuñas produce small amounts of extremely fine wool, which is very expensive because the animal can only be shorn every 3 years
    and has to be caught from the wild. When knitted together, the product of the vicuña's fur is very soft and warm. It is understood that
    the Inca valued vicuñas highly for their wool, and that it was against the law for any but royalty to wear vicuña garments.
