    Last week I picked up an Arthur Chapnik blazer in a nice brown and black weave. It was second hand but in great shape and seemed to fit. Made in Italy, etc. Then I discovered it was short size, and looked it, alas.

    I've googled the guy and searched him on ebay. All I find is some womenswear sold at Neiman-Marcus. Does anyone know anything more, for ex., where the men's stuff is sold?

    I haven't heard that name in ages.

    There were some shady dealings years ago. they used to have a loft around 5th and 20th Street or Broadway. Used to be Also known as Arthur richards.

    they used to have a small factory or gave the work to one of the local factories. Moderate price #2 0r #4 make jacket.

    The jacket is relatively contemporary, with a three button closure, narrow lapel starting above the third button.

    What is a "#2 or #4 make jacket"? Please explain.
