Camps de Luca is perhaps the best bespoke tailor in the world. Joseph Camps was the star of the revival of Parisian Tailoring in the Sixties, and trained countless bespoke tailors (Francesco Smalto, Claude Rousseau, Henri Urban, Gabriel Gonzalez).
From his unique parisian lapel to the cigarette shoulder, a Camps de Luca suit, sportcoat or coat is a sign of understatement and elegance.
I propose a beautiful Camps de Luca coat in a grey heavy shetland wool, with a half-belt or martingale. It is the perfect garment for the winter, in town or in the countryside. You can wear it with a tweed sportcoat and some corduroys, a flannel suit, or dress it up with your best business suit.
As always with Camps de Luca, it is fully handmade, from the lining to the buttonholes, from the shoulder to the collar. It is in excellent condition, aside from a small hole (4mm in diameter) behind the left shoulder (see second to last picture). It is almost invisible and can be mended for 15 euros.
Today, such piece could cost you more than 10 000 euros and could take more than 6 months to make.
The coat is best fitted for someone with a 38UK / 48FR size. It can be worn as a long coat (mid-calf) if you're around 1m70 tall, or a shorter coat if you're 1m80 tall (just below the knee).
Here are the measurements
Sleeve length: 61cm (with 4cm of fabric to let out)
Waist at button: 51cm
Coat length: 106cm (collar included)
