Just bought this cashmere L. Barbera jacket, slightly used, although the fabric is Fall/Winter weight the jacket is light as a feather. The pocket is trimmed in the shell fabric, pick stitching on the sleeves looks very nice. The button holes on the front of the jacket look machine stitched, but the buttonhole on the lapel is hand stitched. Is this an Attolini?

Bump.

Was hoping somebody might have an opinion on this.

I really don't know, but that's a gorgeous jacket.

I read in a previous post that jacket like yours with inside pocket lined with shell material indicated Attolini made. However, an additional clue is the green rectangle label with "Luciano Barbera" in red.

That generally indicates vintage Barbera. Or in the case of more recent stuffs, diffusion line.

Liked the jacket so much I picked up another one from the same seller. Same deal: cashmere Barbera probably by Attolini dark grey with an English tan windowpane pattern and less than $200 for a gently used jacket that fits pretty much perfectly and has working buttonholes on the sleeves. Can't ask for much more than that.
