    Another Caruso-made piece here. It is tagged a 52R Drop 7, but the measurements indicate that it would work for a 40R (I am a 39-40R, and I would need only to nip the waist a hair and shorten the sleeves).

    Fabric is a Loro Piana flannel wool (85), cashmere (10), and silk (5) blend. It is an amazingly soft fabric with very rich colors. I believe the color was described by the original seller as "dark purple," but it strikes me as a brown with plumb undertones. I think it is a fantastic fabric that pairs very easily with grays of all shades.

    I don't know a ton about MaCo, other than that it is Caruso made. It seems very high quality to me, and stylish. Fit is trim, and the shoulders are very light but with just a touch of structure at the sleeve head. It reminds me a bit of the Zegna Milano cut. Side vents, three-roll-two, fully lined. Sleeves have faux buttonholes but I imagine that converting to working buttonholes would be easy for a skilled tailor to accomplish.

    Chest - 21.5"
    Waist - 20.5"
    Shoulder - 18.25"
    Length (top of collar) - 31"
    Sleeve - 26"

    Price includes CONUS shipping. International will be cost less $10.
