I have two beautiful and rare items of leatherwear to pass on today--a gorgeous shearling coat from Bloomingdale's, and a wonderful Made in Italy leather jacket from Armani!

As always, I offer FREE SHIPPING IN THE CONUS; International inquiries are welcome, with tracked, Priority shipping at cost.


Please PM with interest and offers!

1. GORGEOUS shearling coat from Bloomingdale's.


This is absolutely gorgeous! Made from genuine shearling, this coat is both beautiful and functional. Cut from durable and luxurious shearling, the fleece interior of this coat is beautifully warm. The colouring of this coat is wonderful, with a dark chocolate brown exterior and a rich mocha interior; the exterior shell has a slightly "flecked" effect under certain lighting conditions, rather like the flecks and sparkles of light on snow--hence the designation of this colouring as "black snowtop".

The jacket is beautifully cut, and features two front slanted pockets and one interior security pocket. It has a button fastened front, with all the buttons being beautifully secure, and military style cuffs which can be turned back to show the shearling lining. The sleeves are shearling lined, and the neck is designed to show off the warm interior or else be fully fastened. The locker chain is intact and solidly secured, and the front corners at the hem are reinforced with the leather facing--a very nice touch that speaks of the attention to detail that went into this coat. The buttonholes are all reinforced with leather backing, too.

This coat was designed in Canada, and was made for Bloomingdale's. It's in absolutely excellent condition, and will last you for decades with good care.

Asking just $100, OR OFFER, boxed and shipped in CONUS.

Tagged a 42, this measures:

Chest: 24 (remember, this is a shearling, and so this measurement is slightly larger than normal)
Sleeve: 25 from shoulder; c. 37 measured like a shirt.
Shoulder: 23 1/2 (see sleeve measurement, above; the shoulder slopes as always in shearlings, so this is larger than usual)
Length: 33

2) STUNNING Made in Italy Armani leather jacket

This is absolutely beautiful! Dating from when Armani was King, and all Armani products were of the very highest quality, this beautiful leather jacket is a wonderful exemplar of why Armani was so desirable before the diffusion lines took over.

It's difficult to know where to begin with this jacket, so let's start with the leather, which is beautifully, buttery soft--from the very first touch this is clearly a very expensive, luxurious jacket. The construction of the jacket reflects the leather quality--all of the seams are thickly double stitched, and beautifully placed and shaped to provide this jacket with the drape and elegance that Armani was known for. This jacket features two front pockets, and drawstings at both the waist and the neck; these are both intact and fully functional. The jacket fastens with both zipper and studs, all of which operate cleanly and smoothly. The jacket is lined in a wool blend (75% wool, 25% other fibre), which is soft and warm; the interior of the sleeves are quilted for ease of wear, and the shoulder area in quilted for extra warmth. The jacket has a single interior pocket. The colour of the jacket is hard to describe, but might be best construed as a dark mid grey. The cuffs are elasticated and buttoned; the elastication is still fully functional and has no loss of stretch. The jacket features ventilation grommets under the arms.

The jacket does have some minor scratches and nicks (on the shoulder and on one sleeves), but these are very minor. It also has some areas of fading on the front and on the sleeves, which present as blotches; these add, rather than detract, to the character of the jacket, and make this a wonderfully expensive jacket that you won't be afraid to wear! There is also a button missing from one cuff.

Owing to these imperfections, I would say that this jacket is in Very Good condition overall, and, as such, I'm asking just $85, boxed, shipped in CONUS OR OFFER--a steal for a jacket of this quality and in this size!


Chest: 23
Sleeve: 23 1/4 (from seam); c. 36 measured like a shirt.
Shoulder: 22 3/4 (see sleeve measurement; this shoulder drapes)
Length: 27 1/4
