1) BEAUTIFUL Mint Green Blazer for the larger trad.


This is lovely, and perfect for Spring! Made in Canada for that bastion of Southern Trad Rubenstein's of New Orleans, this jacket is cut from subtly complex basketweave cloth--see the close up of the sleeve for details. It is unvented, in Flusser approved style, and half-canvassed. It is lined in a complementary moss green, and the buttons are green-toned also. This is in excellent condition--it still has its original inspection slips in the interior pockets.

Asking just $32, or offer.

2) MADE IN ITALY BEAUTIFUL Spring Olive-y camelhair

The fabric on this jacket is wonderful--far, far softer than camelhair usually is, with a wonderful drape and hand. The cloth was woven in Italy, and is a lovely pale olive soft herringbone--perfect for sipping a Martini outside in the Spring!

The cut is also wonderfully Continental, with a three button front, elegant darting, and twin vents--like the cloth, the jacket was also made in Italy. It is half-canvassed and fully lined. It is in excellent condition, except for a single start of a thread pull on the left-hand sleeve near the elbow--so, overall, this is in Very Good/Excellent condition. However, it was clearly rarely worn--all of the front pockets are still sewn shut.

This is thus a steal at just $30, or offer!

3) Princeton Clothing Co. vintage 3/2 sack


Made for Princeton Clothing Co. back when this was a minor competitor to Langrock, Hilton, Landau, and The English Shop, this lovely jacket is a classic 3/2 sack with a lovely high lapel roll. The cloth is a lovely Spring medley of lichen green, chestnut brow, and peat black, with an aquamarine overcheck. This is a perfect Spring jacket--all the more so as it appears to be cut from heavy cotton, or possibly lightweight gabardine. It is half-canvassed, half-lined, and has a center vent. It was, of course, Made in the USA, and features the classic two button cuff. Although there are no obvious flaws, this is an older piece, and hence is in Very Good condition.

As such, I'm asking just $28, or offer.

4) Lovely Basketweave with Overcheck Jacket by RL Chaps, with a 3/2 lapel!

This is a very nice jacket! Cut from a complex basketweave cloth with a subtle russet overcheck, this is that oddity--a darted jacket with a 3/2 lapel roll! Made in Canada, this appears to be half-canvassed, and is fully lined. It has a single centre vent, four button cuffs, and is in absolutely excellent condition.

Asking just $25, or offer.

5) 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

just $20, or offer.

6) 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 $39, or offer!

7) 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 $22, or offer, boxed and shipped in CONUS.

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

$22, or offer.

9) STUNNING Donegal Tweed by Magee--Made for Mullarney Bros. of Co. Sligo!

This is absolutely STUNNING!! Cut from handwoven Donegal Tweed, this wonderful jacket is a serious rarity, being both a three-buttoned tweed, and a handwoven Dongela that's a puppytooth.. with a fantastic colourway, being a slateblue and peat black puppytooth flecked with gorse yellow, moss and forest greens, pumpkin orange, and berry red. This Donegal easily rivals the more complex Harris tweeds, and is both striking and subtle. A really wonderful tweed, with great texture and a fantastic colourway! It was woven by one D. Hood, who has signed it.

The jacket does the tweed justice, too. Made by Magee, the main maker of Donegal tweeds, in Ireland, this is a rare three button jacket, featuring side vents and three button cuffs. It is half canvassed and fully lined, and the tweed is a wonderful substantial weight. This relaly is a fantastic jacket for the Fall, Winter, and early Spring!

Asking just $30, or offer, boxed and shipped in CONUS.

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

10) BEAUTIFUL Harris Tweed from Landau's of Princeton!

Landau's of Princeton is one of my favorite stores--they carry a lovely selection of lodens, tweeds, and Scottish woolens, and are invariably friendly and pleasant. I highly recommend a visit if you're ver in Princeton!

This jacket is a lovely example of what they offer. The tweed is a lovely patterning and colourway; a lovely rare barleycorn weave in charcoal, slate grey, and Royal blue, all of which are beautifully and subtly heathered together. The jacket is a contemporary two-button front, with subtle darting and four button cuffs. It is fully lined, half-canvassed, and has a single centre vent. It is in excellent condition!

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

[B11) BEAUTIFUL Cashmere and Wool herringbone jacket[/B]

This jacket is cut from a wonderful cloth that's a mixture of cashmere (10) and wool (90) and that was woven in Italy. It has a wonderful hand and drape, and the colourway is beautiful--a classic grey and cream herringbone, with petrol blue and manilla orange flecking throughout--a wonderfully complex and subtly colorful combination!

The jacket is subtly darted, with a three button front and jetted pockets. It is also unvented, in Flusser--approved style, and fully lined. It appears to be half-canvassed. I have the full provenance of this jacket, and it was only worn to be tried on. It comes complete with its original spare buttons and fabric swatch in their unopened packet. This is, of course, in excellent condition.

Asking just $39, or offer.

12) RARE Italian 3/2 tweed sack!

This is a wonderful rarity--if it's your size, grab it! Made in Italy, this is a 3/2 sack jacket--but a very, very unstructured one, combining Italian tailoring with an American classic style. It is quarter-lined, and unvented, in Flusser-approved style. It has a lovely lapel roll, and the pockets are flapped. It features three button cuffs, and appears to be half-canvassed.

There's no fabric content on the tweed, but it's extremely soft, so I wouldn't be surprised if it was either shetland or possibly even a wool-cashmere blend. What is certain is that the colouring and patterning is wonderful--a lovely dark forest green-brown herringbone, flecked throughout with blue, burnt orange, red, cream, and brown. It was made in Italy.

This is in excellent condition.

Asking just $35, or offer.

13) Lovely Nailhead Camelhair with Windowpaning by Thos. David. Horn buttons!

This is lovely, and a perfect jacket for Spring! Cut from wonderfully soft camelhair, this jacket is a beautiful charcoal nailhead, with a lovely windowpaning overcheck in russet and blue, which manages to be both subtle and bold at the same time--not an easy combination to pull off!

The jacket is a standard two-button front jacket, with subtle darting. It features four button cuffs--and I believe that all of the buttons are horn. The jacket is fully lined, and half-canvassed, and features a single center vent. It was made in the USA, and is in excellent condition.

Asking just $35, or offer, shipped in the CONUS--the buttons alone are worth this!

14) BEAUTIFUL Kevin & Howlin Donegal Tweed.!

This is beautiful! Cut from a rare and lovely checkerboard tweed in black, mustard, and slate grey. Made by Kevin & Howlin of Dublin, this is darted, fully lined, and has dual vents. It has single button cuffs, as is standard in older UK firms, and was Made in Ireland.

This does has several small holes throughout, some of which are shown, but this are hard to see owing to the complexity of the tweed. As such, this jacket is just in Good condition, and hence is just $14, or offer.

It also has lapped seams down the centre back, and along the sleeves. It has some loose stitching in the lining at the vent, and is slightly rumpled from storage, and so is conservatively in Very Good condition.

1) SUPERB c. 40, 42R. Custom Made 3/2 Tweed Sack Suit by Brigg's of Providence, RI.


This is stunning--a beautiful bespoke 3/2 sack tweed, c. 40, 42R.

Brigg's of Providence is now long gone, having been replaced by Marc Allen, which is a more fashionable version of the old store. They still offer custom tailoring, though, and specialise in Loro Piana cashmeres and Barberis woolens which you'll select from one of their signature orange club chairs, so all is not lost!

This suit is a beauty! A perfectly cut 3/2 sack jacket with a wonderful lapel roll, the jacket is half-canvassed and half-lined. It's cut from a mid-weight tweed, with a terrific colourway that my pictures don't do justice to at all--a wonderful complex basketweave with an overcheck of blueish-slate grey and fading bracken brown. This cloth is mid-weight, making this a wonderfully versatile, three season tweed. The jacket has three button cuffs, and a single centre vent. It's in excellent condition.

The trousers are also beautifully cut, and are, of course, flat front, with a ticket pocket concealed flat against the waistband. They are cuffed.

This suit was built in 1982--although it might have been made yesterday. It's in excellent condition, but with two small flaws: There is a small tension tear at the corner of one of the back pockets of the trousers. Given its location, this would be a very easy fix for your local tailor, but it does need attention if the trousers are to be worn. And there are some minor pen marks on the lining by one of the interior pockets, as shown.

A tweed, sack suit from a prominent regional trad. tailor? Given the flaw, how about just $75 > 70, boxed and shipped in CONUS, OR OFFER? Please note that the jacket alone is worth this..... so securing a complete tweed suit at this price is a steal!

2) BEAUTIFUL Southwick 3/2 sack--dark grey glen plaid!

This is stunning! Cut from a wonderful dark grey glen plaid cloth that features a very subtle forest green overcheck, this lovely suit is a 3/2 sack cut, and is both fully canvassed and fully lined. It was, of course, Union made in the USA, and features a single centre vent and three button cuffs. The trousers are pleated and cuffed. It does have some minor, minor shine from pressing on the sleeves, but otherwise is in absolutely excellent condition. As such, this is a steal at

just $35 > 32 > 30, or offer.

1) Velvet Tuxedo

The last tuxedo offering from the AAAC member whose closets yielded up the two jackets, above, this lovely velvet dinner jacket/tuxedo is features satin peak lapels, covered buttons, a single button closure, likely half-canvassing, jetted pockets, and a single vent. It is also fully lined, 100% cotton, and in excellent condition. This is also the top of the line for Banks, and so is comparable to Brooks' offerings. If you'd like a velvet dinner jacket, and this is your size, GRAB IT!

Asking just $45, or offer.

2) AN 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.

3) 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.
