The first time I came across this waistcoat was back in August ’09, when I was doing an internship at Net-A-Porter. I have to say it was love at first sight – I love those moments when you look at a clothing item and simply fall in love, is there any better way to describe it? The original price, £245, crushed me. I was delighted when, after having a look at the Net-A-Porter sales a few weeks ago, I found the price had been very, very reduced. I finally received it two days ago, and although it’s slightly big (I wasn’t too sure about the size, an IT 42 is a UK size 10, although it feels bigger), I love it dearly and know that we will have a good future together.
