Made in Italy- Ralph Lauren Signature line jacket, from the defunct line we all know and love, something of an intermediate step between Black Label and Purple Label. 51% silk, 49% cashmere, in a beautiful brown and gold fabic that's a sort of very fine birdseye. In excellent condition, with 4 nicely done working buttonholes on each cuff.

Please see the tag; based on years of reading about this particular line here on SF, I was under the impression that these pieces were made by Caruso, but this appears to be a Corneliani tag.

Size marked 42R, but if you're familiar with these you'll know that they're quite slim, with a very striking cut. Semi-roped shoulders, very slimming button stance- this is for a slim, fit guy... no sucking in the gut to fit into this one.

Sleeves: 24" along outside, measured from sleeve head intersection with shoulder seam
Chest: 41.5"
Shoulders: 17.75"
Length, back from top of collar to bottom hem: 30.5"

Asking $110 shipped via USPS Priority Mail in the US or Canada; Internation bidders to pay actual shipping, but I'll do what I can to keep the cost down for you. This is a really nice piece.

Nice jacket and super price. But with 17.75" shoulders you should probably put 38 in the title go guys that this will fit look at it. No way this fits any 42R.

RL Signature was made by Corneliani - just to a nicer level of finish than the Polo stuff. I had two RL Sig pieces in my normal size that I wanted to fit me so badly, but I had to sell them off NWT. The cut and the roped shoulders kick ass on these.

I got the jacket and it turns out the shoulder measurement was slightly off; my measurement puts it at 18.5". It fits excellently in the chest and shoulders (Caruso Sartoria Parma in 42R is my normal go-to) and dead-on in the sleeves (which is a good thing because of the working buttonholes) but due to my 10" drop I needed the waist slimmed down a little more. Picking it up from my tailor in 10 days.

Congrats on a great deal then....and damn, I should have kopped myself!
