This is simply gorgeous! Half-canvassed and fully lined, this stunning jacket is cut from cloth that is either very lovely, slubby silk, or else a slubby silk-linen blend. (There's no fabric content listed, alas, but it's clearly silk.) The texture is absolutely wonderful--women just want to stroke this, and so I must issue a disclaimer that I'm not responsible for any marital discord that wearing this jacket out in public might cause! The hand and drape are also marvellous, as is the cut--a lovely 3./2 sack with a high roll. This also features the classic two button cuffs, and a single vent--but this is no vintage piece, instead being fairly recently Union Made in the USA. But it's the colourway of this jacket that takes the prize--a simply beautiful grass green, with a bold and beautiful overcheck in red and cream. I tried for about half an hour to capture the beauty of this jacket, and failed... So whoever buys it will be very pleasantly surprised!

It's in excellent condition.

This jacket was made for Bunce Brothers--the uber-trad Mecca of the Western Reserve area of Ohio, with stores in Cleveland, Shaker Square, and orange. Alas, Bunces' is no more--an obituary was posted on AAAC here:

Given the beauty and rarity of this jacket, it's a steal at just $60 > 49 > 45, OR OFFER, boxed and shipped in CONUS! International inquiries also welcome, with shipping at cost.

Measurements:
Chest: 22 1/4
Sleeve: 25 (+2)
Shoulder: 18 1/4
Length: 31 3/4
