RIDILUX: A cashmere/gold blend jacket

This $12,000 cashmere-and-gold woven jacket is one of those pieces you read about, and immediately you have to show to everyone around you, so that you can all form a loud "whoaatt?!" in disbelief.

Well, that's what I did. Saw it in Departures Magazine a couple months ago, and thought of it while I watched hot men try on discounted Helmut Lang suits at the Barneys Warehouse Sale today.

So this is the Luigi Bianchi Mantova Golden Jacket, and it is indeed 12K. It's only available from Burdi in Chicago, which is a boutique I've never heard of, despite my having lived in Chicago and been on its retail scene for years...
