VINTAGE TWEED SHOOTING JACKET Made for Mullin's of Wilmington This is a lovely example of a tweed shooting jacket! Cut from classic brown and cream herringbone tweed, this shooting jacket--which from it heft is clearly intended to be outerwear--has all of the features that you'd want in a functional utility jacket; this was clearly designed for use, not for merely looking the part.

BEAUTIFUL AND RARE LODEN JACKET! Made in Austria Loden cloth originated in the Austrian Tyrol, where it quickly became a favourite with hunters, shepherds, and others who spent a lot of time outdoors, owing to its water-resistant properties and the high degree of warmth that it gives relative to its weight. The fabric is produced from the coarse wool of Alpine mountain sheep which has a natural short pile; this is woven into a loose cloth which is then...

"Alpacuna" was a cloth developed by Jacob Siegel Co. of Philadelphia; it featured a combination of at least 50% alpaca, blended with...
ICONIC POLO COATS! From Hickey-Freeman and Pendleton! Not surprisingly, the Polo coat owes its name to the camelhair coats worn by Polo players between chukkas.... and as such it was originally an English, rather than an American, garment. But the English Polo had only a distant resemblance to what would quickly become an American style icon. They often lacked any form of buttoning, closing only with a belt, and were essentially glorified bathrobes..... which was...
