1) RARE Cashmere blend (?) Welsh Tapestry Tweed

SOLD

I very, very rarely see Welsh tapestry tweed, and it's even less common to see one that's readily wearable, as they tend to be an acquired taste. And it's even less common to see one that appears to be woven from cashmere... But this tweed meets all of these criteria!

Cut from tapestry tweed in a wonderfuly complex yet utterly wearable pattern (please see my close-ups for details!) this beautiful jacket has no fabric content, but the tweed appears to be either pure cashmere or a cashmere-heavy blend, judging by its extremely soft and yet hardy hand. The jacket was a bespoke model made in Hong Kong at the legendary Mandarin Hotel, and features a wonderful paisley lining that goes beautifully with the complex yet understated pattern of the tweed. It is a standard two button front jacket with a single centre vent. and two button cuffs.

If this is your size, grab it--you're not likely to see another like this again, and most definitely NOT at this price!

Asking just $30, or offer.

Measurements:


Chest: 21 1/2
Sleeve: 24 (+2 1/2)
Shoulder: 18 1/2
Length: 28 1/2

3) Unusual vintage 1950s/1960s two button sack

Rarer than its 3/2 brother the two button sack i sa trad staple--and this is a lovely example! Cut from rougher, slubbier tweed this little gem is utterly 1950s/1960s collegiate, with a dark petrol blue base with bold old-gold and light blue striping running vertically through it. This sort of cloth really isn't seen any more--and nor is this sort of cut, with a lovely lapel curve into the front and a sack cut. It's half-canvassed and half-lined, and has a single center vent. It also has the classic two-button cuffs, and was Made in the USA. It is clearly an older piece, and could use a dry clean to freshen it up, so it's in Very Good condition only.

So, how about just $20, or offer?

4) Lovely Orvis Glen Plaid slubby tweed

SOLD

There's no fabric content listed, but this might well be a wool-silk blend, as it has that lovely slubby texture of such.

It features a zippered interior security pocket, darting, and a single vent. It was made in the USA, and is in excellent condition.

6) Gieves & Hawkes "Bespoke" wool and silk jacket. c.42R.

This is something of an oddity! It was certainly made by Gieves & Hawkes, but I'm not convinced that it was actually bespoke, since it lacks a client name and is also tagged a 42R on the original interior G&H tag. perhaps "Bespoke" was a rather misleading name for one of G&H's MTM or OTR lines of clothing?

In any case, this is a very nice jacket indeed, with a versatile colourway (pearl grey, with a subtle overcheck of blue and chestnut) and a very nicely textured hand--as one would expect, since it is cut from cloth that is a blend of silk (70) and wool (30)... and so has all of the identifying small nubs and pulls that is typical for this blend! it is half-canvassed, fully lined, and has a single center vent. It was Union Made in the USA.

Asking just $35, or offer, shipped in CONUS.

7) BEAUTIFUL 3/2 sack for The English Shop of Princeton by Corbin. PATCH POCKETS!

SOLD

This is absolutely lovely! Half-canvassed and half-lined, this wonderful jacket is cut from mid-weight tweed in a heathery light tobacco colour. (Please do see my close-ups of the cuffs for a better idea of its beauty--my pictures don't do it justice at all!) It is fully canvassed. It features three button cuffs and the ever-desirable patch pockets, as well as a single center vent and a lovely lapel roll. This jacket was Made in the USA by Corbin--one of the most undervalued of the major traditional USA clothiers, in my view--for The English Shop of Princeton, one of the Big Four Princeton menswear shops. (Now, alas, gone.) This jacket is in absolutely excellent condition, and a steal

at just $40, or offer.
