Hi Guys,

It greatly saddens me to do this but I have to either sell this jacket to one of you guys or return it to the seller. I would prefer one of you to have it as I will have to mail it back to Italy, so to save that cost, I am selling it to you guys for what I payed for it on ebay which is $300 shipped in North America.

Here's the jacket:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...MEWA%3AIT&rd=1

I have bought alot from the seller so I know him pretty well, which is why he gave me such a good price on the jacket. Unfortunately the sleeves are about 1 1/2" too short as I didn't realize how high the armhole would be cut and as it has working buttonholes it would look ridiculous to extend it that much.

This jacket is exceptionally made, it has handstitching everywhere, and is magnificently cut, the picked stitching all over really makes it stand out and it has a very minor lining with inner pockets which makes it very versatile.

I can provide additional pictures from whichever angle you guys prefer.

I wish I could keep it myself......

Thanks,

Farooq

Farooq,

Sorry to hear that it did not work out for you. Where does the sleeve end? as long as it covers your wrist bone, it should be ok. If you want me to take look at it for you. Call me.

Hawk called u, left a msg.

GQGeek the shoulder is unconstructed, but the fit is impeccable and it sits very nicely. I was going to post the pics you requested but the site has limits on the upload size, I will email them to you.

farooq, I'm gonna have to pass since it's unstructured. I need a little bit of padding in the shoulders.

No worries GQgeek, I have very straight high shoulders, so for me uncontructed works well, I think for a unconstructed jacket it still keeps its shape quite well tho....

any other takers?? I'm pretty close to returning it if no one pipes up....
