Let me start off by saying that this thrift find is now one of my favorite sportcoats and perhaps one of the nicest I have ever purchased. Ever! Here are the stats: 59% cashmere, 41% silk in a beautiful blue windowpane pattern with a Bemberg lining, half canvas interlining, side vents and ‘three-roll-two’ horn button layout. So nice!
But what’s even nicer is what I paid for this like-new condition sportscoat: Only $37.00 including shipping on eBay (check out my post on buying used suits on eBay here)! An excellent thrift haul find! A jacket of this quality typically sells for over $900. I have a fondness for windowpane patterns, and this is about as nice as they come in ready-to-wear menswear. It is a beautiful sportscoat, both in fabric and construction. What is more, it fits me perfectly without alterations.
This sportscoat is made by Peerless Couture, a high-end label from Peerless Clothing, a respected Canadian suit maker that produces suits for well-known labels such as Chaps, Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger and Andrew Fezza Collection. One of my favorite thrifting finds ever!
If you like higher-end men’s clothing brands such as Oxxford, Samuelsohn and Zegna, be sure to check out this vendor c-suiteattire on eBay (this is who I purchased my jacket from). They are not the cheapest. However, the quality of their clothing is excellent.
