    I am hoping to get some information about this jacket. It has a bit of a back story. It was gifted to me around 7 years ago by a woman who was a model in Italy. She claimed that this piece was custom made for her around the 1980's. I don't know the legitimacy of that claim but i have been searching online for months trying to find any information about it, or the designer. Im coming up short every time i look! If anyone can help me i would be so very grateful!

    Hi, apparently Oscar Valentino is a brand that still exists, I found it online, it apparently makes men's shirts.
    Try this link: https://www.yoox.com/it/uomo/shoponline?d=19217&dept=men&gender=U&page=1&season=X or this one https://www.viaitaliamoda.com/product/oscar-valentino-camicia-uomo-slim-fit/

    but maybe the most interesting link is this one: https://www.foxybrownvintage.it/prodotti/camicia-anni-70-oscar-valentino/
    it lists a woman's shirt, from the '70s and the label - if you zoom you can see it quite well, looks almost like the one of your jacket.

    Hope it helps!

    It's a beautiful jacket, but a care label like this points at it having been factory-made, not custom made. Maybe the previous owner had it altered in some way by someone else to fit her? Does it have shoulder pads?
