1) VERY SMALL Classic herringbone Harris Tweed


There's been some discussion on AAAC's Trad Forum about how difficult it is becoming to find Harris Tweed in the classic cream and grey herringbone colourway and patterning--so I'm pleased to be able to offer this classic wardrobe staple here!

That this is a classic Harris, however, doesn't confer Grail status on this jacket--its size does. This is a very small (but perfectly formed!) Harris Tweed, ideal for a small chap.

This jacket is half-canvassed, fully lined, and has a centre vent. It features the classic football buttons that are perfect with Harris, and these are a beautiful, rich, glossy chestnut brown. It has a contemporary two button closure, and three button cuffs. It also features one of the more unsual Harris Tweed labels; the small rectangle, rather than the large square. Naturally, the Orb is present! It is in absolutely excellent condition.

This is a beautiful, classic, standard Harris Tweed--in miniature! A Grail indeed.

Asking just $50, or offer, boxed and shipped in CONUS.


Chest: 17 1/2
Sleeve: 24 1/2 (+1 3/4)
Shoulder: 17
Length: 30



2) BEAUTIFUL and STRIKING Plaid Tweed!


This is terrific! Cut from a wonderfully striking and beautiful plaid tweed, this is a perfect Fall and Winter tweed, which would be absolutely wonderful with khakis, cords, or grey flannels! The colourway is just terrific--a slate-grey background with a bold cream overcheck, a bold burnt orange overcheck, and also subtle overhecks in pale lichen blue and green. Wonderful! It's half-canvassed, half-lined, and features elbow patches (which are original to it) in a lovely slate grey, which complement perfectly the slate-grey base colouring. It has a single center vent, is subtley darted, and features four cuff buttons. It was Union made in the USA, and is in excellent condition.

Asking just $35, or offer.

3) BEAUTIFUL Classic Harris Tweed--Made in the USA!


This is a lovely, classic Harris Tweed! Cut from a lovely heathery mossgreen, lichen blue, and slategrey herringbone, this features the classic and subtle vertical Harris striping in brown and new-bark tan. This is half-canvassed, half-lined, and features a single vent. It also has classic metal-shanked football buttons, that are the perfect complement to Harris tweed. It was Made in the USA. It's in excellent condition.

4) Lovely, classic, brown herringbone tweed! Made in Canada.

This is a very, very nice tweed! Cut from classic brown herringbone, this features a very subtle blue vertical stripe throughout, that can be hardly seen except of close inspection. Made in Canada, this is half-canvassed and fully lined. It has a standard two buttn front, subtle darts, and three button cuffs. It's in excellent condition. And I'm asking

just $20 > 18, for a half-canvassed tweed--or offer!

5) STUNNING Nick Hilton Wool and Cashmere Made in Italy herringbone jacket!


My pictures come nowhere close to capturing the true beauty of this jacket!

This is STUNNING! Cut from a beautiful cloth (95% wool, 5% cashmere) with a superb hand and drape, the colourway of this jacket is simply wonderful--a classic light brown herringbone with a perfectly complementary overcheck of subtle cornflower blue. Beautiful! The jacket is also half-canvassed, and fully lined in a wheatgold lining that brings out the cornflower overcheck perfectly, as well as blending with the herringbone. It is subtle darted, has a two button closure, and four button cuffs. It was made in Italy for Nick Hilton, whose jackets have recently been receiving widespread praise. And this shows why! This is in excellent condition.

Asking just $50, or offer.

6) BEAUTIFUL Thos. David CamelHair Glen Plaid with overcheck


This is an absolutely lovely jacket! Cut from 100% Camel Hair, this is lovely and soft with a terrific hand and drape. The colourway is also lovely--a cream base, a chestnut brown glen plaid, and a Royal Blue overcheck. This is beautiful, and my pictures don't do it justice at all--the colours are much, much richer than shown here. It is fully lined, and half-canvassed with a single rear vent. It is in excellent condition, and was Made in the USA.

Asking just $40, or offer.

8) 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 $18, or offer?

10) 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 $25, or offer, shipped in CONUS.
