1930s style biswing jacket

A Los Angeles-based reader wrote to me and supplied photos of his recent commission with Enzo Caruso. The jacket is inspired by a specific example worn by Clark Gable in the 1935 film China Seas.

The Caruso jacket pictured below is made out a Holland & Sherry blue wool-cashmere mix and features a stitched, half-belted back, bi-swing shoulders and military pockets. In the right pocket, there is an additional insert pocket.
