Hugo Boss Orange Label Sport Coat Blazer Jacket Limited Edition Handcrafted Sz L
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a blazer or sport coat made by Hugo Boss as part of their “Orange Label” limited edition line. The jacket is “handcrafted” and features rather unusual design detailing - great if you like to wear something that’s a little outside of typical. It is made of a very good quality wool blend. The jacket has peaked lapels, relaxed shoulders, a two button closure, the button made of hammered brass, similar three button cuffs, a chest pocket, flapped side pocket and light blue decorative stitching against a black denim look wool that is peppered with white flecks. It has a blue denim interior pocket.
There is a large label stitched to the interior back of the jacket with light blue stitching that is visible on the back - I guess that if that stitching bothered you that you could remove it. The label reads:

I think that this jacket is close to being vintage. The Orange label was introduced in 1999, but I’m unsure about when the Handcrafted range was introduced. In any case, a unique piece from Hugo Boss - nice quality jacket with a lot of interesting finishing touches!
