This is a typical men's samba jacket, made in Brazil with hand applied/glued acrylic crystals and rhinestones. There are 3 main sizes, Small, Medium and Large. Pair it with one of our sparkly men's samba shirt, vest and pants and you are ready to look like a ***"Malandro" sambista! Traditionally a Malandro will use a white jacket and a stripped red/white t-shirt and white men's samba shoes, however in a more sophisticated event or in a group a black, dark attire is required.
The crystals are not too much, but enough to look like a professional sambista. It's nicely scattered to have an elegant look.
This is traditional men's samba look!!
In Brazil a size SMALL would be size 38, a size MEDIUM 40-42, a size Large 46 and above. If you want to send us your measurements we can check against our jackets, but we do not custom make jackets. Our sizes are an average size.
***Malandragem (Brazilian Portuguese: [malɐ̃ˈdɾaʒẽȷ̃]) is a Portuguese term for a lifestyle of idleness, fast living and petty crime – traditionally celebrated in samba lyrics, especially those of Noel Rosa and Bezerra da Silva. The exponent of this lifestyle, the malandro (masculine adjective), or "bad boy" (rogue, hustler, rascal, scoundrel), has become significant to Brazilian national identity as a folk hero or, rather, an anti-hero. It is common in Brazilian literature, Brazilian cinema and Brazilian music.
We will ship each costume from its country of origin. Please email us with you shipping address. We will send you a final payment after the costume is ready with the correct shipping price. Each receiving country might have import restrictions, pelase email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Each costume is hand made exclusively to your size, quantities and style. We would prefer, on a general rule to give you the exact shipping rate AFTER the product is completed. Like this we can weight & measure the product or costume. Some costumes require a bigger shipping box. Some parts of your costume has odd size boxes (like a back wing for example, or a headdress), so we need to address that need at the shipping office. Therefore, the shipping price is given when the costume is 100% complete. We may ask you to send a separate shipping payment (we will invoice you) and NOT CHARGE upfront for shipping on your 1st costume payment. This will give you the client, the exact shipping price and not an "estimated" shipping price. In general terms we use Brazilian Post Office that can easily track the shipments on their website. If the customer prefers, we can use FedEx. Which ever way you choose to ship your product we prefer to talk to you via email and find the best solution, a less costly shipping method before we ship the product. It seems only fair on our point of view!
