    Paul Smith London is decent quality, tho fused.

    Lapel and shoulder of your specimen make it look rather old & costumey.

    huh, I've never seen "Paul Smith Sportswear" tag, and it says "Made in Hong Kong" which I thought was a more recent development for his lower lines. Being that it's not mainline it's gonna be fused but it's an odd auction since he describes it as from the London line which it isnt. Regardless, the overall look of the jacket doesnt seem worth it.

    Hm, well I figured it was worth tossing $17 on, but I wasn't really sure about the timeline as it looks like it's from awhile ago from the picture. I think a lot of the appearance issues are due to the mannequin though, but we'll find out. I've wanted a green/blue plaid jacket for awhile though.
