When a garment is made of truly fine wool, you can really tell it by how soft the material feels....and this jacket is made of some of the finest, soft wool ever! The color is a nice medium gray....not too dark and not too light, but just right! The jacket is well tailored and fitted and is beautifully detailed with gray cording and top-stitching. The long sleeves are turned up at the cuff and the cuffs are tacked on the underside to stay in place. There are two front pockets slightly hidden in the curved detailing. The notched collar is the signature "V" collar. The three buttons which serve to close the front of the jacket are dark mottled gray with a silver tone signature "V". The buttonholes are well finished. The inside of the jacket is fully lined with matching gray material and there are shoulder pads in this jacket. A very classy jacket!
Condition: Very Good
Yes, there is one issue....a small hole to the left of the top button between the cord and top- stitching. I have photographed this hole and it actually looks far worse in the photo than it does when you are looking at the jacket. It's sort of like a gray on gray hole.....not bad at all. On the inner lining there are several very small stains....very small and hardly noticeable at all. This jacket is in very clean condition and I would not hesitate to wear this jacket anywhere.
