Pretty cool. I like that if you saw someone wearing this, you would never guess that it's nearly 70 years old.
Also interesting: Client of the other A&S jacket offered by seller may be Louis Gimbel III, of the Gimbel's dept store family.
Client for this one is hard to read.
Looks like its from the same original client. The one linked to in this post was made for a L.S. Gimbel.
Generally, I'm against wearing striped jackets with odd pants.
But this one is obviously special. It would look great with a nice casual slack, or even jeans. And the fact that this coat is 70 years old only makes it better.
Too bad it's missing the trousers. :-/ Nice find, that.
That's just my size. 98.6% seems a little low for ebay. Anyone know if he's a reputable seller and if the jacket is the real deal?

No experience with the seller but why would anyone fake a 70 yr old jacket?
