1) Crafted in Philadelphia Brown Basketweave with ticket pocket!

This is a really lovely smaller tweed! Crafted in Philadelphia, this little gem has a fully functional ticket pocket in addition to the usual two lower pockets, has a single centre vent, is half-canvassed, and fully lined. It also features leather-covered metal-shanked "football" buttons, and is in absolutely excellent condition--the left-hand front pocket is still basted shut!

The colourway of this tweed is wonderful, and my pictures really fail to capture it. As well as the usual slate grey and dark chestnut brown of the typical brown and grey basketweave this has lots of dark damson purple woven in, which can only be really seen on close inspection, but is really terrific. As the lining complements this perfectly, being a lovely deep, rich, damson purple!

Given the beauty of the tweed, the excellent condition, and the lovely and unusual colourway, this is a steal at just $45, OR OFFER, boxed and shipped in CONUS!

2) BEAUTIFUL Harris Tweed in blue-grey herringbone

SOLD

This is a truly lovely jacket! A very recent Harris, this is cut from a lovely blue-grey herringbone cloth that would be perfect for Spring. Made in Canada, this is half-canvassed and fully lined, and features a single centre vent. It is in excellent condition, and appears to have been worn sparingly if at all, except with one flaw--a small, small bare spot right by the lower hem on the left-hand side. This isn't moth, nor is it a snag, and I've seen this sort of flaw before even on new jackets. Given this, my assumption is that this is some sort of weaving flaw. It's small and inconspicuous, and might have been there since the jacket's birth, but it IS there, and so how about

just $25, or offer, boxed and shipped in the CONUS?

3) Beautifully Complex Basketweave Harris Tweed

SOLD

Cut from a lovely versatile Harris Tweed in a dark basketweave, the colourway of this jacket is deceptively complex, but a base of dark charcoal shot through with lines and flacks of forest green, dark blue, and the occasional berry red--Harris at its subtle and complex finest!

The jacket itself is a contemporary (and very recent) two button model that is subtly darted. It features a centre vent, is half-canvassed, and fully lined. It's in excellent condition.

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

4) THE PERFECT TRAD SPRING TWEED!!! Crafted by Gordon of Philadelphia, in Philadelphia!

SOLD

THIS IS GORGEOUS!!!!

This jacket is absolutely stunning.

The tweed is beautiful.

The cut is superlative.

The construction is excellent.

Can you tell I like this jacket?

And it really is wonderful. Cut from a lovely lighter-mid-weight tweed, the colourway is simply beautiful--a classic Spring lichen green and cream herringbone, that's simply the perfect colouring for Spring. It's a 3/2 sack with a lovely lapel roll, and features lapped seams both along the sleeves and down the centre back. It also has a single centre hook vent, leather-covered, metal-shanked football buttons in the perfect shade of young chestnut brown, and a half-lining. It's half-canvassed, and was Union made in the USA.

This is a really beautiful jacket, and in absolutely excellent condition--this was worn lightly, if at all. Asking just $60, or offer, boxed and shipped in CONUS--which is a real steal for a jacket of this quality!

Chest: 22
Sleeev: 25 1/2 (+1 3/4)

5) BEAUTIFUL and RARE Plaid Tweed 3/2 sack by Princeton University Store!

SOLD

This is absolutely beautiful! First, the tweed is beautiful and striking--a gorgeous complex and bold plaid in peat black, Royal blue, and mustard orange, a pattern and colourway that's absolutely classic yet bold, and of a type that is very rarely seen anymore.

The construction and cut of this jacket do justice to the beauty of the tweed that it's cut from. Half-canvassed and half-lined, this lovely jacket is a classic 3/2 sack with a single centre vent and the classic two button cuffs. And, to top it all off, it was originally sold by Princeton University Store--when they sold real clothes, and not just branded hooded sweatshirts, Cliff Notes, and stuffed toy tigers!

This was, of course, Union Made in the USA.

This does have a small repair in the lining at the seam of the armpit on the right, and could do with a dry clean to freshen it up--which you'd do anyway, right?--and so is fairly yet fairly conservatively in Very Good condition. As such, how about just $59, or offer, boxed and shipped in CONUS for this trad. beauty?

6) GRAIL! J. Press Irish Tweed Jacket in Bold Plaid. GRAIL!

SOLD

This is absolutely gorgeous! There was considerable discussion recently about the Grail nature of these J. Press Irish tweed jackets, and this one is a beauty.

The patterning and colourway are absolutely wonderful--a beautiful bold yet muted plaid with bold vertical striping of dark mustard, jet black, and moss green. The tweed is a lovely thick heavy Irish tweed--tweed that's worthy of the name, and which would allow you to dispense with a topcoat on fresh Spring days. The jacket is cut as a 3/2 sack, with a twist--it also has a fully functional ticket pocket and twin vents, proudly proclaiming its Irish country heritage! It is half-canvassed and half-lined, and has the classic two-button cuffs of the trad. sack. It was Made in Ireland, of course, expressly for J. Press. The Press label is the "Three City" version--black, with New Haven, Cambridge, and New York emblazoned on it.

The tweed of this jacket is in excellent condition. The lining has an ink blotch under the pocket on the right-hand side, and a minor repair in the lining at the seam of the armpits. Overall, then, this jacket is in Very Good condition.

Given this, and given its Grail nature, how about just $60, OR OFFER, boxed and shipped in CONUS? smile.gif
