This is a very stylish and absolutely top quality suede, beautifully made 'bomber style' jacket which is fully quilted. Designed by the well known Italian design house Christiano di Thiene c. 1970's whose quality leather garments are still coveted today. The rich suede is a gorgeous light but rich burnt caramel color.
Collar, cuffs and bottom of jacket are done in a finely woven elasticated wool mix in a perfectly matched shade, which catches the gentle gathering of the leather. The front panel of the jacket is not gathered which gives a neater fit to the front. The sleeves are wide and roomy and will be comfortable even if the jacket is worn over a bulky sweater. The full lining is elegant and slightly iridescent. Zippers are top quality and all working 'as new' and easily. In addition to the front closure, there are three zipped front pockets and one zipped pocket to the interior. This was purchased in Italy in the 1970's and shows almost no wear at all, no fraying or stretching to the collar, the cuffs or the bottom band - the elastic remains springy and fresh. All seams are secure and completely intact. It will be a wonderfully warm and cozy jacket without being too heavy. (Please note: the flash needed to give light to the photos bleaches the color slightly so please look at all photos - the first few photos are a more realistic representation of depth of the color).
The size is a European 52 which equates to about an American 42 Men's size. Although it was originally worn by a tall lady, it could certainly appeal to either a man or a woman. Ladies US size 16-18. It carries the designer's label Christiano di Thiene 'Leader in Leather' and a 'Made in Italy' label.
Condition: This has been well stored for years and the condition is nearly new with no stains or damage, nor any odour other than that of fine suede. Very slight rubbing and light soiling to the bottom of the sleeves just above the cuffs and to the interior of the hip band on the inside - all of which could most likely be brushed out with a suede brush.
Shoulder to shoulder 23"; Sleeve length 23"; Hips 38"; Chest under arms 46"; Back - Collar to Bottom 29".
