Although founded in 1975 Armani's heyday was undoubtedly the decade that spanned the late 1980s to the early 1990s. In part, this was because the new prosperity of those years enabled people to afford Armani... and in part it was because of the success of films such as *The Untouchables* which featured gorgeous 1920's-inspired clothing designed by Armani, and intended (by Armani!) to showcase the beauty of his signature flowing silhouette. It didn't hurt that the 1920s-style overcoats that were the *real* stars of the show swirled dramatically when their wearers opened them rapidly to deploy the shotguns they'd concealed underneath!
This jacket was made quite a bit later than Armani's heyday... But with its high lapels, three-button front, and autumnal brown colouring it has more than a hint of Armani's vision of the Prohibition era. Cut from pure cashmere, this is wonderfully soft and luxurious, with a lovely hand and drape.
Made it Italy, this is half-canvassed and fully lined. It is unvented, in Flusser--approved style, and has jetted pockets at the front. It also features three button cuffs with kissing buttons.
It is in absolutely excellent condition; the two lower front pockets are still basted shut!
Asking just $45, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA.
