Made in Zaragoza, Spain, by the third generation of the Gimeno family to own and run the family business of Justo Gimeno, this is a stunningly beautiful and unusual garment, to be worn in more casual settings in lieu of a sports jacket.

 

Taking its name from the Count of Teba, a famed huntsman who has this jacket designed for use in the field, the teba jacket has a distinctive collar, three patch pockets, shirt-style cuffs, no vent and a straight hem. It has extremely soft shoulders and a four button front with a lovely lapel roll at the top.

 

This particular jacket is in the classic navy, and is New and unworn with its tags attached. This jacket is designed for warm weather wear, and is cut from gossamer-light blend of 60% wool and 40% linen--an extremely luxurious summer fabric that is solid to the eye, yet so light that you can almost see through it when you hold it up--you even verify this in the pictures below by looking at (or through!) the back of the jacket in the main picture! This is unlined as is traditional, and impeccably tailored.

 

The original retail on this jacket in the United States was $695; it was only available at a few very exclusive and niche stores, such as The Armoury in New York City. (A branch of an upscale Hong Kong clothing store that offers such exotica as Japanese bespoke eyewear and reproduction 1960s selvage jeans.) Last year Spoo on Style Forum was selling these new for $250, which was an incredible deal. Not to be outdone, this jacket is a mere $175, OR OFFER, boxed, shipped, and insured in the USA.
