Arrigo alpaca topcoat

    This is an alpaca Ulster-style topcoat which is being made by Messina tailor Arrigo, whom I describe in my guide to Sicilian tailors.

Alpaca should probably not be your first choice in topcoating fabric. This particular alpaca is made by the Italian textile mill Agnona. The fabric could be an interesting third or fourth choice for a casual topcoat if you're looking for something different from the usual wool or cashmere options.
