1) PBM of Philadelphia Houndstooth

PBM is one of more overlooked and underrated American clothiers; based in Philadelphia, their products are the equal of better-known makers like Corbin. This lovely tweed testifies to that; cut from a wonderful chocolate and cream houndstooth, this has a British inspired double vent, is half-canvassed, and half-lined. The flap pockets are slanted--another British inspiration!--and it has a contemporary two button front, and subtle darts. The lining does show some wear owing to its age, but otherwise this is in excellent condition--and how often do you seen houndstooth like this? It was, of course, Union made in the USA.

Asking just $39, or offer.


Chest: 21 1/4
Sleeve: 23 3/4 (+2 1/4)
Shoulder: 17 3/4
Length: 29 1/8

2) Made in the USA of Scottish lambswool Boss Barleycorn jacket with overcheck.

Admittedly, this isn't as Trad as most of my offerings, and also admittedly Boss gets little love here (as it shouldn't, at full retail), but this is a wonderful jacket, and so worthy of offering! First, this is cut from wonderfuly soft Scottish lambswool, woven in Scotland by ALexander's, so this has a wonderful hand and drape. The colourway and patterning of the cloth is also terrific--a lovely classic grey and cream barleycorn, with a very subtle overcheck of lilac and burnt orange. The jacket is fully lined, and half-canvassed, has a three button front, jetted pockets, and is unvented, as Flusser would approve. It was also Made in the USA.

This lovely jacket is a steal at just $50, or offer, boxed and shipped in CONUS.


Sleeve: 24 1/2 (+1 1/2)
Shoulder: 19 1/2
Length: 31 1/8

3) BOLD BRITISH GUNCHECK in lambswool.

This is lovely! Cut from lambswool, this has a wonderful hand and drape, and the colourway is simply fantastic--a really bold British guncheck in tones on bracket, peat black, turquoise blue, and burnt orange--a truly lovely bold guncheck! This is half-canvassed, and fully lined, and was Made in the UK. It is unvented, in Flusser approved style, and subtly darted. It's in excellent condition, and a steal at just

$39, or offer.

4) Italian Spring jacket in silk, linen, and wool!

Like the Boss, above, this jacket isn't quite my usual style... But also like the Boss, it's a wonderful jacket that deserves a good home here! Cut from an E. Thomas superfine cloth that's a blend of silk (40), linen (35), and wool (25), this has a wonderful hand and drape, and its weight makes it perfect for the upcoming warmer weather. Beautifully styled, this has a three button front, a lovely lapel roll, and features dual vents. It is half canvassed and fully lined. Please note that my pictures don't come near to doing this justice--it's a lovely light tobacco color! I's in excellent condition. It was Made in Italy.

Asking just $49, or offer.

5) MADE IN ENGLAND Spring guncheck

Cut from a lovely lighter-weight cloth, this beautiful little gunheck would be perfect for Spring, early summer, and early Fall. The colouring is lovely and light, being a mix of tan cream, forest green, and with a bracken overcheck. It is a contemporary two button front cut with subtle darting, and four button cuffs. It is half canvassed and fully lined, and is unvented, in Flusser-approved style. It was Made in England, and is in absolutely excellent condition.

6) CLASSIC Grey Herringbone tweed with patch pockets!

This is lovely! A classic grey and cream herringbone tweed flecked with sky blue, berry red, pumpkin orange, and gorse yellow, this lovely jacket has patch pockets, three button cuffs, a full lining, and a single centre vent. It was also made in the USA, and is in excellent condition. This is a classic jacket, and a mainstay of anyone's wardrobe--so if it fits you, grab it! Surprisingly, this was made by Levi Strauss.... in the US, no less!

7) GRAIL! GORGEOUS Full Norfolk Tweed Jacket.


This is absolutely stunning! Cut from a wonderful grey basketweave tweed which is flecked with dark blue and russet, this beautiful jacket is a fully functional full Norfolk. It features the classic vertical tweed bands on both front and back, these serve to hold the integral tweed belt, that is adjustable and fastened by leather-covered metal-shanked football buttons. The two flapped front pockets are also fastened by these buttons, which are a lovely shade of light chestnut, and the perfect complement to the greys of the tweed. This jacket also features a fully fucntional throat latch. This jacket was made by Linnett, another overlooked but excellent American manufacturer, and was made in the USA. It is fully lined, appears to be fully canvassed, and is in excellent condition; there are a couple of loose stitches in the hem on the lining, but these could readily be ignored, and would be unlikely to be noticed by you anyway--I mention them more for my peace of mind!

This really is a GRAIL jacket-Norfolks are rare, American made fully functional Norfolks rarer still, and one sin this size even more so.... as such, it is a steal at just $125, boxed, shipped, and insured in CONUS.

Sleeve: 26 (+2 1/4)
