It has extremely short double vents and a narrow lapel with doubled-in toggle pockets.
put it on!
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.
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?
pocket details and color are grand. nice find. i love brioni...
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.
What a fascinating jacket! What colors do you plan on wearing with it?
That looks like a very nice jacket. Congratulations!
