Vintage Loro Piana Black Cashmere Top Coat with Mink Collar

 

When it comes to luxury labels where cashmere is concerned, the pinnacle, hands down, is Loro Piana.  What began as a family of wool merchants in Italy over a century ago, the family owned company of Loro Piana has honed their craft to what has become THE luxury label in woolens and especially in cashmere. This full length black cashmere top coat, dating from  the mid 1980s to the early 1990s,  is fashioned from the softest, most luxuriant fabric you will probably ever lay your hands upon. Truly an exquisite gentleman's coat, it is  double breasted with four buttons at the waist and features a notched shawl collar trimmed in mink. Welted flap pockets rest at either hip, with a welted chest pocket and sleeves sporting a quadruple buttoned cuff. Carrying Neiman Marcus' own men's label, Marcus Collection as well as the Loro Piana label, the coat is fully lined in Neiman Marcus embossed platinum hued satin, and is in excellent condition.  Chest measures  42", shoulder 18.5", sleeve 25, length 49" with a 20" rear vent. sold
