1) Brooks Brothers "Brooksgate" Glen Plaid

This is a lovely jacket! Cut with a standard contemporary two button front, this is subtly darted, and features a a single centre vent. It is half-canvassed and fully lined, and the colourway is a lovely combination of dark cream and slate grey, with just a hint of green in some of the grey lines. This was Made in the USA, and is in excellent condition.

2) Harris Tweed 3/2 sack.

A trad. classic! This is a brown herringbone Harris Tweed, cut as a 3/2 sack. It's by JAB--but Old School JAB,when it rivaled Brooks' better offerings. It's half-lined, and features a single center vent, letaher-covered, metal-shanked buttons, and a lovely lapel roll. HOWEVER, it does has a flaw--a small but distinct hole on the left hand shoulder at the back, which, to be honest, is too large to go unnoticed and would cost a decent amount to reweave, owing to its size. But this would still be a terrific knock-around jacket for the weekend! As such, it's in wearable condition, and so

just $16, or offer, shipped in CONUS.

Measurements:

Chest: 21 1/2
Sleeve: 25 1/4 (+2)
Shoulder: 18 1/2
Length: 32

3) GRAIL! CASHMERE herringbone 3/2 sack.

This is the first cashmere 3/2 sack I've seen--and it's lovely! Cut from luxurious two-ply cashmere, rather than the thin stuff that's so common today, this is a lovely rich dark honey brown herringbone. It features a centre vent, a lovely lapel roll, and half-canvassing. It has single button cuffs. It does have some minor flaws: There is a fray at the hem of the lining on the left hand side, and some loose stitching in the lining at the vent. There is also a small fault in the weave--not a snag--on the left-hand sleeve. As such, this is in overall Very Good condition.

This was Made in the USA.

Asking just $40 > 35, or offer.

Chest: 21 3/4
Sleeve: 23 1/2 (+2)

4) HEAVY HARRIS TWEED JACKET by Hardy Amies for Hepworth's.

This is a FANTASTIC jacket--seriously thick and heavy, this is Harris as it should be! A classic and standard brown and cream herringbone, this is a jacket you could easily use in place of an overcoat. Designed by Hardy Amies for Hepworth's, this isn't tagged as such, but was clearly made in England. It has a single centre vent and single button cuffs. It does have a single missed stitch on one sleeve, and the full lining shows signs of wear and rumpling, so this is in Very Good condition only. As such, it's a steal

at just $29 > 25, or offer.

Measurements:


Chest: 21
Sleeve: 24 1/2 (+2)
Shoulder: 18
Length: 29 1/2

5) GORGEOUS, GORGEOUS BOLD PLAID 3/2 Sack by Southwick!

THIS IS GORGEOUS! I'll let the pictures describe the beauty of the patterning and colurway of this wonderful jacket, and just mention a few of its other features. First, it's a 3/2 sack. It has a fully functional throat latch, using a throat latch tab on the collar. The colar is lined in leather, and it features leather elbow patches. It also has leather-covered football buttons. It was made by Southwick, and is fully canvassed. It was, of course, made in the USA. It is unvented, in Flusser approved style.

It does have a flaw: there is significant water staining to the inside of the lining on the right-hand side, as shown. Otherwise, this is in excellent condition. However, because of this damage I'm asking

just $50 > 45 for this beauty, boxed and shipped in CONUS.

Measurements:


Chest: 23 1/2
Sleeve: 24 3/4 (+2 1/2)
Shoulder: 20
Length: 32 1/2

6) Pendleon Basketweave Tweed--with patch pockets and elbow patches!

This is a lovely jacket! A lovely basketweave in shades of grey and cream, this features patch pockets, suede elbow patches, a single centre vent, and football buttons. It is fully lined, and was made in the USA. It is in excellent condition, except for one flaw--the former owner decided to write his initial in marker pen in the interior, under one pocket! Because of this, I'm asking

just $25 > 22 or offer.

7) ANGLO-IVY HYBRID TWEED, by Scotshire.

I can say with absolute confidence that you're not likely to encounter anyone else wearing a jacket like this--and if this were in my size it wouldn't be here, as I love its quirkiness!

This jacket is what happens when Ivy tweeds mate with their upper-class English counterparts!

This is, first a jacket with a 3/2 lapel roll, so it's clearly Ivy. But it's darted. SO it's not classically Ivy. And it has a fully functional ticket pocket, so there's an English hacking jacket somewhere in its heritage. And it has twin vents, further confirming its English parentage! But it also has very natural shoulders....

The tweed is lovely--and of a sort that is rarely seen anymore, since it's a pattern popular in the late 1960s, which is when this jacket is from. It's 3/8 lined--again, unusual--and has three button cuffs. (A hint of normalcy!) It appears fully canvassed, and was Union made in the USA made for Nat Greenblatt of New Haven, clearly aimed at the Yale crowd. (Don't like Yale? I have a Harvard tie for sale in one of my tie threads!)

This has a very small smudge of something by one of the buttonholes, which might or might not come out with dry cleaning. (It's not very noticeable, and I tried to capture it in the close-up picture of it.) Given this, this lovely quiry jacket is in Very Good condition, and hence just

asking $29 > 25, or offer, boxed and shipped in CONUS.

Chest: 20 1/2
Sleeev: 26 3/4 (+1)

8) BESPOKE Cashmere Twill (?) Jacket with working surgeon's cuffs!

This is wonderful! made by Robert Tailor in 1980 at The Mandarin Hotel in the British Crown Colony of Hong Kong, this jacket carries no fabric content tag, but it's almost certainly thick, heavy cashmere twill... extremely soft and luxurious, with a wonderful hand! It has fully functional surgeon's cuffs, a wonderful custom paisley lining, and a single back vent. The colourway of the fabric is wonderful--a wonderful, rich dark chestnut and peat black, that my pictures utterly fail to capture! This is in excellent condition.

Asking just $40 > 35, or offer.

Chest: 21 1/4
Sleeve: 25 (+1)

9) CLASSIC Charcoal Herringbone Harris Tweed

This is a lovely, classic Harris tweed! Half-canvassed and fully lined, this lovely jacket is a classic charcoal herringbone, with the classic Harris vertical striping in red and blue. This has a centre vent, is a standard contemporary cut, and is in excellent condition. It was Made in the USA.

Asking just $35 > 32, or offer.

10) STUNNING AND RARE! Solid Blue Harris Tweed, with patch pockets.

Solid colour Harris Tweed is a rarity, and this one is absolutely gorgeous--a beautiful shade of blue, just the shade of Peter Rabbit's famous jacket--apparently the most beautiful shade of blue that the Lake District sky produced, according to Beatrix Potter! In addition to its rare and lovely colourway this jacket hasjust the right amount of Harris tweed hairiness that's so often lacking in modern Harris.

It's also a lovely cut--a standard model, certainly, but with flapped patch pockets, beautifully styled lapels, and a single centre vent. It is half-canvassed, and half-lined. It also features metal-shanked football buttons.

Don't be fooled by the fact that this was made for Jos. A. Banks, as this was the Old School Banks, when it rivaled Old-School Brooks and Press, and was a major purveyor of canvassed suits and 3/2 sacks. This is easily comparable to the Old, Good, 346 line of Brooks, if not just a bit better.

This jacket is in truly excellent condition--it was clearly worn very, very sparingly, if at all. It's absolutely gorgeous, and far better in person than my pictures indicate.

Given its rarity and beauty, how about $50 > 45, boxed and shipped in CONUS, or offer?

[B11) Lovely slubby rough-hewn tweed! Made in the USA.[/B]

12) Wonderful Green Plaid Vintage 3/2 sack.

SOLD

This is lovely--and very, very 1950s/1960s Ivy! The patterning is almost a glen plaid, while the colourway is a wonderful green base, with overhecks of mustard, red, and grey--my pictures don't do this justice at all! This is a lovely high-roll 3/2 sack, almost a 2.5/3 roll, with a lovely roll and lovely narrow lapels. It has the classic two-button cuffs, a single centre vent, and is half-lined in a wonderful green paisley. It's half-canvassed. It could do with a press and a dry clean to freshen it up, but with these it will be in excellent condition--right now, it's just in Very Good condition. So, how about

14) A LITTLE BIT OF IVY HISTORY! Tweed from The Student Tailor Shop of Princeton.

SOLD

This is INSANELY RARE!

Perhaps no other retailer has had such an effect on Ivy style as The Student Tailor Shop of Princeton, which even went so far as to circulate a memo to the incoming class of '51 telling them that the style of clothes worn at Princeton differed from other places, and advised the men to acquire grey flannels and white bucks, among other things. Mainly active in the 1940s, this retail establishment was run by Princeton men, for Princeton men, and its view of how to dress was accordingly influential on campus, and then beyond.

This is the very first STS jacket I've ever seen--and I've seen a lot of Langrock, English Shop, Ballot, and old-school Hilton, so I think it's fair to say that this jacket represents a very, very rare piece of Ivy Style indeed.

That's the good news.

The better news is that while this jacket does have some lining issues, the tweed itself is in excellent condition--repair the lining, and this will serve you for the next fifty years, if cared for properly!

And what a tweed it is. A very high-roll 3/2 sack, almost a three button sack, this lovely jacket is the epitome of Princeton style, being long, elegant, and with very narrow lapels. This is clearly from The Golden Age of Ivy Style. The colourway is awonderful rich, dark chestnut and dark peat black in a classic herringbone. This jacket has two button cuffs, a single centre vent, and is half-lined. It was, of course, Made in the USA. It is fully canvassed.

The tweed is in excellent condition. The lining has some frays at the hem, and a small rip at the back on the seam near the shoulder. These are all easy repairs. The jacket is also missing a front butto--again, a easy repair, and if you can't get an exact match I suggest replacing the button set entirely--a very easy job for a dry-cleaner tailor.

Given these issues, this jacket is conservatively in Good condition, maybe more accurately Good/Very Good condition.

And it's from the STUDENT TAILOR SHOP OF PRINCETON UNIVERSITY!

Given its rarity, historical interest to Ivy buffs, and sheer beauty and wearability.... how about $29, or offer, boxed and shipped in CONUS?

16) BEAUTIFUL Classic Harris Tweed--dusty tea-rose pink and light blue striping!

I love the tweed of this jacket--in part as I interviewed for my first academic job in a jacket with just this colourway, and since at least two members of the Search Committee commented on it I'm sure it helped me!

The jacket is a classic Harris Tweed--a light grey-tan herringbone with vertical stripes of dusty tea rose pink and light blue running through it. The cut is a standard two-button front contemporary style, with the classic leather covered metal shanked buttons that fit Harris tweed so well. It is half-canvassed, and has a single centre vent. It is half-lined, and was Made in the USA.

Asking just $39 > 35, or offer, for this classic jacket.

Chest: 24 3/4
Sleeve: 26 (+2)
Shoulder: 18 3/4
Length: 32 1/2

17) CLASSIC Harris Tweed in slate-grey herringbone with PATCH POCKETS!

This is lovely! made by PBM--a rock-solid trad, clothier--in Philadelphia, this lovely Harris Tweed is the classic slate-grey and cream herringbone pattern and colourway. It also features leather-covered, metal shanked buttons, flapped PATCH POCKETS, a single vent, and half-canvassing. It's also half-lined, and was, of course, made in the USA.

Apart from what is literally a pinprick in the lining at the back, this is in excellent condition, and a steal at just $35 > 32, or offer.

Measurements:


Chest: 24 1/4
Sleeve: 26 1/2 (+2 1/4)
