I was the lucky guy with the quick mouse click who grabbed this RLPL for a great price. It came today and it is beautiful and perfect. Kind of a light grey with some darker grey mixed in. Super soft 100% cashmere - mid-weight. Brand new condition - basting threads on sleeves and shoulders - sleeve buttons are unattached and in a little cashmere bag in the pocket. Its a bit wrinkled from shipping but no odors, marks, nothing - tags still attached on sleeve.
Ok - here is the problem - this is my first RLPL and I guess I didn't appreciate fully the slim fit/suppressed waist. It just doesn't look good on my build and I don't want to undertake the extensive tailoring that would fix it. But, on an average build - or on anybody who knows and likes how RLPL fits them - this jacket will be fantastic.

So - you know what I paid - way under market. If you want it, PM with offers and any questions

Given my summer-long massive eating binge, about a 37. The jacket "fits" in the sense that it buttons and it doesn't "pull" into the X. It just doesnt fit as nicely on me in the way that a Zegna or a Brioni does.
