A) Crafted in Philadelphia Brown Basketweave with ticket pocket!

SOLD

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 $39, OR OFFER, boxed and shipped in CONUS!

1) PBM of Philadelphia Houndstooth

SOLD

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 $30 > 28 > 25, or offer.

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 $42 > 35 > 32, or offer, boxed and shipped in CONUS.

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

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.

5) MADE IN ENGLAND Spring guncheck

SOLD

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.

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.

8) Harris Tweed 3/2 sack.

SOLD

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 $15, or offer, shipped in CONUS.

9) GRAIL! CASHMERE herringbone 3/2 sack.

SOLD

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.

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

SOLD

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 $20, or offer.

11) 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

12) 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.

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

SOLD

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 $35 > 32, boxed and shipped in CONUS, or offer?

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

SOLD

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.

26) AN IVY LEAGUE BEAUTY! Shawl collar from The English Shop of Princeton.

No listing of Ivy league formalwear would be complete without an offering from The English Shop of Princeton--and so here one is! This is an Ivy Classic--a beautiful shawl-collar tuxedo from one of the Big Four of Princeton's Ivy league clothiers. And what a shawl collar--lovely and narrow, this was the height of cool in around 1963, which is the era this jacket dates from. This is cut so beautifully and classically that it could slide from a stuffy cocktail party at the President's House (the real President, of Princeton University, not some suspect politician...) to a jazz dive with ease.... as no doubt it did! Fully canvassed and fully lined, this has a single vent, two button cuffs, flapped pockets, and covered buttons. It's in wonderful condition, with the exception of some minor fraying at the back of eh collar, on the inside, as shown, and some discoloration to the interior label. As such, this is in overall Very Good condition.

This would be PERFECT worn with tartan trews for a tradly holiday look... which is how I wear my own TES c. 1965 shawl collar!

Asking just $21, or offer--a steal for an American Ivy classic!

Measurements:


Chest: 21 1/2
Sleeve: 25 1/2 (+1)

27) ANOTHER IVY CLASSIC! Shawl-collar tuxedo from a Dartmouth clothier!

If Princeton is the well-groomed preppy of the Ivy campuses, Dartmouth is the slightly tousled cousin, with a hip flask of bourbon in a coat pocket and Bean Boots under the cuffs of the tux..... But you wouldn't guess it from this Ivy beauty, which is as lovely as its TES cousin, above. Made for the Dartmouth University outfitters James Campion, this beauty has the same narrow shawl collar lapel as the TES tuxedo above; however, this is that rarity, a sack cut tux, and features uncovered buttons, and tradly two button cuffs. It has flapped pockets and a single button closure. Did I mention that it's a sack tux? The cloth is slightly heavier than the more refined tuxes, above, and is perfect for a slightly unheated house in a NH winter--who needs heat when you have bourbon, after all? This jacket is a wonderful tradly item, and would be perfect with tartan trews! It has a very, very faint scuff to the lapel, and is an older tux, so conservatively it's in Very Good condition. It was Union Made in the USA.

Asking just $20, or offer.

28) Hickey-Freeman Customized Shawl Collar Tuxedo--from 1975!

This is absolutely beautiful! In excellent condition, it's a shock to realise that this tuxedo is from 1975; it could easily have been purchased yesterday. Fully canvassed and half-lined, this has flapped pockets, a single center vent, a single button closure, and four uncovered cuff buttons. It's in absolutely excellent condition, and was, of course, Made in the USA.

A steal at just $22, or offer.
