Up for sale is a beautiful buttery-soft lambskin leather jacket by made the French company Façonnable. Façonnable is an international high-end men's and women's tailor founded in Nice, France, by Jean Goldberg in 1950. His first shop in Nice was frequented by film stars in need of tuxedos and gowns for events such as the annual Cannes Film Festival. Jean Goldberg's store gained great notoriety across the French Riviera, dressing stars of the era such as Tony Curtis and Cary Grant in Goldberg's unique style of classic tailoring with a modern twist. In 1961 Goldberg retired, his son Albert Goldberg took over the Nice workshop. He created a new fashion footprint shifting it to the ready to wear market. After a visit to New York's Brooks Brothers store, Albert Goldberg produced a collection of ready to wear outfits for men and renamed the business 'Façonnable', a variation of the word "Façonner" (English: "to create").
This jacket was purchased at Nordstrom in Scottsdale Fashion Square in Arizona back in the late 1990's, was worn only a handful of times then stored away until recently. It's in excellent condition with barely any visible wear, still looks like brand new. Constructed with an extremely supple lambskin leather which is ultra smooth to the touch (like butter!). Has full zippered front closure and and snap-closure slant pockets. Also has zip close interior pocket with a small pen pocket. Insulated quilted lining, elastic rib-knit cuffs & hem and button-tab collar closure for added warmth and protection from the elements. Original price at Nordstrom was $995.00, this design is no longer in production.
