    Decent price, but not a steal. Good seller too.

    For $500, go MTM.

    Get it; however, be prepared to return it if the tailoring costs are not worth while

    If you do return, go MTM

    not only is that some ugly fabric, but at 5'5", it will likely be too long.

    with your build, id spend that money on mtm.

    It's a suit jacket? Looks lke it should have matching trousers to go with it.

    Just ask the seller if it's an orphaned jacket.

    I doubt its an orphan since 89% cashmere is very very likely a jacket only cloth given the weaving. This cloth would not hold up well as a trouser.

    The only significant % cashmere trouser suitable cloth you will see have a very tight worsted weaving. Cashmere is just not an abrasion resistant or tenacious fiber and needs all the help it can get in that department.
