Up for sale is an incredible NWT Raffaele Caruso mainline sportcoat. Size 40R US. Full canvas construction. Grail grey wool "hopsack" / "fresco" open weave fabric.

Raffaele Caruso needs little introduction here. One of the best suit/sportcoat makers out there. Full canvas construction. They make jackets for Ralph Lauren Purple Label.

This sportcoat is about as "Holy Grail" as it gets for grey sportcoats. Very SF-approved. It features soft shoulders, a 3-roll-2 button stance, and patch pockets. And the icing on the cake is the exquisite hopsack/fresco weave fabric. The texture on this is awesome. It's a very casual open weave that is sought after by many SF members.

I originally bought this jacket for myself but have enough grey sportcoats in my collection. It is still new with tags. Had the sleeves shortened by a tailor before I decided I didn't want it. Can easily be let out again by a tailor.

My loss is your gain!

A nice grey sportcoat combo. Looks great with tan pants

As worn by Cary Grant in To Catch a Thief, and RFK, among others

Bump for a really good deal!

That combo is going to be really tough to beat for someone that needs a grey sport coat.
