    It needs to be altered.

    This is a beautiful piece of craftsmanship. This is the sort of thing that you probably couldn't even get from most bespoke these days.

    It's like machine-hand-made; it's that well-made.

    Nice jacket, LK, but I like the copy of Women of the Left Bank in the background much better. J/k. Anyway, I agree, wear it and post a pic! I'd be curious to see with what you'd wear it. I'm assuming some sort of very crisp silk ascot will be involved. [​IMG]

    The stitching looks stunning. I can only imagine how great the attention to detail is. Is the colour of the jacket accurately represented by the photos??

    Note the very unusual pockets.

    I love how unbelievably dated this item is--I think it is late '60s, early '70s.

    The stitching and attention to detail is stunning. It makes some of the very expensive RTW--and some bespoke--I've seen look cheap.

    Some years back (way before the server crash) I posted some pics from a 1918 catalogue of gentlemen's "furnishings" that I found in my grandmother's attic. In addition to showing VERY pointed-toe shoes and flat-front pants all-around, one of the jackets had pockets like that with similar stitching. I need to look around and see if I can't find those pics.

    EDIT: Found the pics and started a new thread (so as not to hijack LK's nice jacket!)

    What no original 'Signal' magazines on your bookshelf?

    I'm looking for a nice loden colored jacket myself. There is a nice cashmere Black Label one this Fall that I will try to snag come sale time. Did you specify the construction or is this some rarely seen model?

    It looks like a jacket someone would wear in the countryside after a hunt or a day in the field.

    I also got a very stylish and '60s 100% Mongolian Cashmere blazer and a vintage 1960s Begg of Ayer scarf in cashmere.

    All in exceptionally fine condition--they were from a private sale.
