No Reserve!!!!!!!Up for sale is a brand new, never worn Alamo original Rome jacket studded with genuine Austrian Swarovski crystals in a size medium. This jacket was purchased by me from the Alamo office in the Empire State Building in late 1989 in NYC. I was a buyer at that time and purchased this jacket for myself. It was never worn and was kept on a cushioned hanger in cold storage all this time. This jacket retailed for $900.00 in 1989. Most buyers are rightfully concerned about the color fade and yellowing that takes place on these 20-25 year old jackets. Since this piece was kept in cold storage all of it's life, t is zero color fad, zero yellowing, no fold marks and no odor of any kind. This jacket has NEVER been exposed to sunlight (direct or indirect), cigarette smoke or dust. Tony Alamo was a world renowned designer to the Stars. In the mid-seventies he designed custom clothing for stars like Elvis and James Brown. These exquisite custom art jackets were worn by numerous celebities. They were featured in magazines such as Vogue Nov 1987 and Woman's World Dec 1987. When Rolling Stone magazine did their 20th anniversary issue in April 1987, Tony Alamo was the only designer mentioned in the 50 page article on style.Measurements are as follows:Waist - 20" acrossChest - 24" across (x2 equals 48")Sleeve - 24" from top of shoulder to end of cuffHeight - 29" from top of collar to bottom edge of waistThe jacket size is a very generous medium as shown by the measurements. The jacket can be made larger by removing the inside shoulder pads.. I have a 100% positive feedback rating and I am including a 7 day money back guarantee (no questions asked). You will never see any Alamo piece in this pristine condition.
