1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    A great piece made by Caruso for Vakko in a heavier weight 85% wool, 10% cashmere, 5% silk fabric. Very similar in cut and quality to their work for RLBL, but with softer and more natural shoulders (no roping). Full canvas construction, nice pick stitching, and incredible craftsmanship in its unlined construction. Sleeves and buttons can be adjusted. The brown suede elbow patches and collar lining, flapped patch pockets and slivery horn buttons make it easy to wear both for work or out in more casual settings.

    Was bought NWT and very, very lightly worn by me--no more than 5-6 times.

    $250 shipped CONUS

    Measurements:
    Shoulders--18.75"
    Chest--22.5"
    Sleeves--26.5"
    BOC--29.5"

    Let me check the measurement again, as it surprised me too and the jacket doesn't fit short on me.

    It's the sleeve length that does it for me, normally I find them too short but this is long!

    They can certainly be shortened!
