2) BEAUTIFUL Brooks Bros. 3/2 sack in brown with orange windowpane!


This is a gorgeous jacket! From Brooks Brothers' old "346" line (the old, good line, not the modern version) this is a lovely 3/2 sack with a beautiful collar. The colourway is also lovely; a muted brown with discreet burnt orange windowpaning. This jacket is half-lined, is cut from lighter-weight wool, and features two button cuffs. It was Made in the USA. The collar could do with a re-press at the back, hence this is just in Very Good/Excellent condition, and hence it's just

5) Lovely Corbin 3/2 sack slate-blue blazer!


This might be an orphan, but given its colouring and cut it could easily be converted to a covetable Spring and Summer blazer, simply by switching the current buttons for a set in blonde horn--and I'd strongly advise doing this, as this is a lovely garment!

Made by Corbin, one of the great and most underrated American clothiers, this lovely jacket is a 3/2 sack, with a half-lining and a single center vent. It is half-canvassed, Made in the USA (as far as i know, Corbin make nowhere else), and is in excellent condition. This is a steal at

6) 40L Brooks Brothers Glen Plaid Three Season jacket

This is beautiful! Cut from a wonderful glen plaid in various shades of versatile brown, this lovely recent jacket is a more unusual three button front with subtle darting.

7) Southwick SIlk, or SIlk/Linen, summer 3/2 sack jacket


This is absolutely beautiful! There's no fabric content, but from the lovely slubby texture and nubbiness this is obviously silk, or a silk-linen blend which is silk-rich. It's half-canvassed and fully lined in a complementary ivory lining, and is a classic 3/2 sack cut. It was Made in the USA, has a centre vent, and is in excellent condition. This is wonderful, and if it fits you, grab it!

8) Italian miniature houndstooth 3/2 sack jacket from Brooks Brothers

This is lovely! Made in Italy, this lovely Spring-Summer weight jacket is all wool, and is cut from a lovely miniature houdstooth. Half-canvassed and fully lined, this has a single centre vent, and is cut as a classic 3/2 sack. The breast pocket is still basted shut, and it's in excellent condition apart from a very, very small blemish on the lapel that I have only just noticed, and had to squint at to make sure that it wasn't just part of the pattern. This is hardly noticeable at all, and might well come out with a dry clean, but it is there, and so this jacket is

9) Brooks Brothers classic navy blazer.


Another one that needs no introduction! This is a three button front, single vent, fully lined blazer. It's cut from 100% worsted wool. It does have some fraying in the liner under one arm, and some minor shine under the front breast pocket from pressing, hence is in Very Good condition only.

10) Polo University Club navy blazer.


Another jacket that needs no introduction! A classic two button front, single vent, half-canvass and fully lined. This needs to be pressed, but otherwise it's excellent, so it rates as being in Very Good/Excellent condition. It was made in the USA.

12) BEAUTIFUL Vintage Anderson-Little Windowpane Jacket

This is absolutely GORGEOUS!!!!! Cut from lightweight wool, this beautiful jacket is a very high 3/2.5 roll sack. It's half-lined, fully canvassed, and features a single vent. The colouring and patterning are beautiful, and it was made by the old-school Anderson and Little when it was a trad/Ivy staple! It was, of course, made in the USA.

This is WONDERFUL, in excellent condition, and a steal at just $65, 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

$30 > 25, 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 $40 > 35 > 32, or offer.
