I purchased this exceptional exclusive piece from Eth0s in Shanghai last year. I feel this is a fantastic opportunity to get your hands on a very desirable hand made piece from one of the world's foremost Artisans, Geoffrey B Small. Due to having sizing issues with my (abnormally) broad shoulders I had never quite managed to fit in and so has it remained hanging in my wardrobe ever since.
The condition of the Jacket is absolutely immaculate and includes all original tags, original handmade autographed bag, and hand autographed on the underside by Geoffrey himself. Described as Jacket but is a light coat.
Please refer to the beautiful photo's taken by Eth0s detailing the elegant fit: https://www.eth0s.net/collections/geoffrey-b-small/products/geoffrey-b-small-long-work-jacket
SPECIAL HAND MADE DESIGN
An Eth0s Shanghai China Exclusive
This super limited edition WSJ06 handmade long work jacket design is one of only 7 pieces of its kind made by hand in the entire world. Of these, just 2 pieces were created for all of China exclusively for Eth0s in Shanghai. This piece is from our 1940’s French Atelier single-breasted 4-button long work Jacket reproduction pattern from our tailoring research, using an elegant extra fine double-faced pure worsted wool woven for us in Biella Italy, then individually hand washed in our studios for extra aging and softness. This piece also features intriguing pocket shapes and forms unique to the original design plus rugged and extremely time consuming authentic period technique single-needle double-stitching construction throughout the entire piece, and remarkable real horn buttons made exclusively for us by the legendary Fontana family of button makers in Parma, and real hand-stitched buttonholes in pure silk Bozzolo Reale Milano Seta thread which require at least 8-10 minutes to create each one. Variations in color and color density are not imperfections or irregularities, but specific characteristics of the special hand washing technique. Please treat buttons and buttonholes with care. We recommend professional clean only or hand wash cold water and protecting buttons with foil or plastic wrap when washing. Do not put in washing machine or machine dryer.
