    Bought this off Chorse123 when he was selling the lot of sportcoats. Its a NWT beautiful jacket I just thought the contrast in the colours would be more substantial, and as such it doesn't match with the outfit I wanted to pair it with. I want to recoup what I paid so $300 shipped anywhere in NA.

    It fits slightly large for a 38R so I would peg it more like a 39R.

    This is a spectacular jacket guys. Someone should snag it asap. FYI, the measurements I had were: Shoulder: 19" Chest: 42" Waist: 39.5" Length from bottom of collar: 30.5" Sleeve: 25" So yeah, this would probably fit a 39R or 40R well. EDIT - if they were my measurements I'd probably buy it back!

    I can't believe no one has bought this. It's a truly stunning jacket and if the measurements worked for me I would definitely buy it. The Zegna jackets I kept from that sale are probably my favorites. Extremely comfortable and well made from excellent material. Off the rack at Saks or Bergdorf this would be a $1800+ jacket, I think.

    I can answer that! Full canvas--very nicely made, too.

    I met Farooq this evening (a great guy) and tried on this jacket. Unfortunately, the fit wasn't right for me but let me say that it's a stunning coat and I really wish it fit me so that I could buy it. The fabric is simply out of this world and the pics do not it justice at all. The weight is perfect for 3/4 seasons and the color and pattern is very versatile. If these are are your measurements, you are crazy not to buy this sportcoat.
