Hand Tailored Double-Breasted jacket cut from Scottish wool, by Maiwo Yang & Co., Hong Kong.  c.40

Hand Tailored Double-Breasted jacket cut from Scottish wool, by Maiwo Yang & Co., Hong Kong. c.40

Maiwo Yang & Co have been prominently featured in the memoirs and histories by the essayist Franciso A. Cruz, since they employed his father after the family's escape from Communist China. This jacket is a lovely example of the firm's work. First, it is cut from Scottish wool--this is clearly stamped on the edge of the bolt from which the back of this jacket was cut, and is visible as the lining has been left unfinished to conform this. (I can have the lining sewn shut if desired before shipping.) The patterning and colourway of the cloth are lovely; the cloth is a very dark, dark navy birdseye with lighter blue accents heathered in, with a very subtle red overcheck.

The jacket is cut as a double-breasted jacket with six brass buttons, all of which are functional; it has two button cuffs. It features two front hacking pockets, and it is fully canvassed and fully lined. It has a single centre vent. It comes complete with all of its original spare buttons attached to the interior.

This jacket is in excellent condition, and a bargain at just $35, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA. International inquiries welcome, with shipping at cost!

Please PM with interest and offers!
