Richmond Depot Jacket and CS issue shirt
I have for sale a Richmond depot early war jacket made by Jim Warehime. This is a fantastic jacket and very comfortable! It is a Size 38-40 and I am hoping to get $180 + $10 shipping, but I will accept reasonable offers.
The jacket is made of a light grey satinette and is trimmed on the collar and cuffs with hand applied black cotton tape. It has 12 small buttons back marked “Perfection-Paris” with all buttonholes hand sewn. The jacket has epaulettes held down by the same buttons that close the jacket. It is very lightly used with no staining or soiling to mention.
The construction on this thing is beautiful, almost the entire jacket is hand sewn, with the internal seams being the only machine sewn areas. The lining appears to be completely hand sewn and is hand set into the jacket around its perimeter completely by hand. There is one breast pocket set into the lining on the left hand side. All the top stitching is hand done and is very small and neat. All the tape trim on the jacket is hand applied.
This style jacket could also apply to a home procured coat so it is versatile. Don’t let this jacket pass you up!
I have pictures now but can’t post them, so shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or PM here on the forum and I can get you those.
I almost forgot! I still have the CS issue shirt made from a W&W kit. It is completely hand sewn by me. I intended this for me but it is way to large. It should fit someone up to around a 44 chest but i would not be surprised if it fit up to a 46. $100 +10 shipping and handling. If you want pictures just shoot me an email.
