Phergus Paris Cashmere Mink Jacket Sport Coat Blazer Sz 40
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a blended cashmere mink jacket made in Italy for the Phergus Paris brand name. It doesn’t appear to be a well-known brand, but it does appear to have been a brand of exceptional quality. From what I can tell, the brand name belonged to a parent company by the name of Aetos Chrysae (Joel Varjacques), which has a men’s store called Olden located at 189 St Honoré in Paris, the rue St Honoré being where all of the high end shops are. The brand Phergus was established in 1994 and retired in 2014. The Olden store sells Brioni and d’Avenza, so Phergus was competing against those highly regarded brands. This blended cashmere mink jacket is made in a classic style with medium width notched lapels, two button closure, four button cuffs, a flapped pocket at either side, a chest pocket and a flap vent at the back. It is fully lined in Cupro, which is a type of rayon that is made of regenerated cellulose fibres from cotton waste.
