This essential piece of the sartorial puzzle was designed for and made by--well, in conjunction with an old Brooklyn tailor--a guy who soon went on to work on suits at Duncan Quinn. It shows: the fit, the materials, the look--all are perfect. I hope my admittedly terrible photos give some indication of that. You'll note that I've also taken a photo of the "label": mine was the fourth of five black sport coats that he designer and tailor created; each was made to the specifications of the individual buyer. Details: -Italian wool (not a summer jacket, but I wear well into the spring) -slight sheen to fabric -two-button front enclosure -center-back vent The fit is the right kind of modern: the silhouette is slim but still structured (normal level of padding at shoulder); the length is a touch shorter than your average suit jacket, but that's an advantage if you pair this with more a tapered jean. Measurements below: Pit to Pit: 18.25" Shoulder: 16.25" Length (hem to collar): 28" I accidentally put a tear into the jacket at about the wrist-level of the right arm; I've included a photo of the patch-up my tailor did (it looks like a very small cross when examined closely). I've loved this blazer for four years--only giving it up b/c I couldn't resist splurging on a Kris Van Assche blazer. $75, shipped.
