Jackt #2, YSL 2008 2 Button Peaked Lapel Dinner Jacket

I picked this up at the Rive Gauche store near St Sulpice in June 2008 - that store is now shut down. This particular jacket is one of the finest crafted jackets I possess. The lapel is thick and plush, the silk soft to the touch. The lining is luxurious and detailed well beyond my expectation of an off-the-rack jacket. I adored the subtle details like 'Le Smoking' embroidered into the inside pocket. It is a shame a jacket like this spends most of its life in a suit cover. My only complaint is that it is two button and not a single button in the traditional sense.
