    Lovely blue windowpane on grey herringbone sport coat in lightweight tweed
    Probably dating from between the mid 1940s and early 1950s.

    Condition
    Very good.
    Has been thoroughly cleaned-dry cleaned as well as washed!
    There are three repairs to holes:
    one on the top of the sleeve - done by previous owner
    and two more by me which are almost imperceptible, as I have used different coloured threads to blend the repair in with the weave.

    Don't forget to mention the lovely patch pockets! It's ventless and probably a 1940s jacket by the great Californian institution of 'Sportswear' (love their stuff!).

    GOOD LUCK.

    Meta, I'm interested. I assume it is too roomy for you?

    Will send a PM.
    BTW your 1952 suit alterations are almost finished.

    A bit too big for me. The seller messed up the measurements.
    I have replied to your pm.

    If Fastuni should pass on this I'd like to be next in line.

    Anton, I will let you have this one.
    I must be honest - it is also too large for me.
    I intended to take in the seams to make it fit a Sz.40/42, but better it goes to someone who can leave it in the original size.

    Thanks, Fastuni. This is pretty much exactly my size.

    Metatron, PM sent.
