Made from Crespi fabric, milled in Italy by a family firm founded in 1797!

J. Crew's Ludlow jackets and suits have acquired something of a cult following among those who like a contemporary twist on 1960s style, and it's not hard to see why.

Cut from lovely cotton fabric sourced from Crespi of Italy--a family owned company that was founded in 1797, and is a member of Les Henokiens, a group of family-owned companies that are over 200 years old--this is cut as a contemporary two button jacket. It is darted, and features the signature narrow lapels of the Ludlow cut.

This jacket has lots of lovely details which have earned it its following. It has pick stitching on the lapels and lining, four button cuffs, and the pockets are edged in J. Crew's signature neats fabric in dark red and green. The sleeves are lined in Hickory stripe.

It is half-canvassed and fully lined, and is in excellent condition--it still has the tag attached that should be removed before wearing! It has a single vent.

Asking just $35, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA.....making this perhaps the best-priced Ludlow jacket available anyway today!
