These are perfect for the holidays! Made by Chipp of New York--THE Ivy League/Trad tailors--these are flat-front and cuffed--as you'd expect! They also have a very nice tailoring detail of a small "flap" at the top opening of the pockets, designed to reduce stress on them when used. These are, of course, all wool. They have the usual degree of discolouration in the lining from age and wear, and a VERY small snag hole on the top on one thigh on the front. This is very...

AQUASCUTUM TRENCHCOAT MADE FOR LANGROCK OF PRINCETON! Bruce Boyer described Langrock of Princeton as one of the best four Ivy league clothiers in the country, and he wasn't wrong. Langrock was THE Ivy League clothier during the Golden Era of the Ivy League look, and ever since it closed its doors for the last time in the 1990s its products have become increasingly rare, and as a result have been increasing in desirability and, alas, price--even damaged examples of...

This is absolutely beautiful!

THIS IS GORGEOUS! I don't use the term "Grail" lightly, but this beauty deserves the name if anything does. First, its pedigree: This coat was originally sold by Joseph Keefe, The Sports Center of Haverford, PA--an utterly Ivy store that catered primarily to the families of the boys attending Haverford prep. school. And it's clear why they carried this coat--from the classic, thick Irish herringbone tweed that it's cut from, to the beautiful, flowing cut of the coat, to...
This is old school Barbour, dating from when all of its products were made in South Shields, England, and were designed for function, not fashion! This coat is thus made with Barbour's old-style waxed cotton, not the considerably inferior peach-fuzz Sylkoil that's becoming ubiquitous in its outerwear. It's in sage, and has a wonderful patina; it won't need rewaxing this season, but it'll be due next, so this is ready to go. This coat is a true trenchcoat, with Barbour's...
