1) BEAUTIFUL and CLASSIC 3/2 sack summer jacket from The English Shop of Princeton!

SOLD

This is absolutely beautiful! From The English Shop of Princeton, one of THE major purveyors of Trad clothing during the Golden Age of Ivy Style, this jacket is wonderful! Cut from a lovely sturdy yet breathable hopsack, this jacket is a beautiful rich olive green, accented with brass-coloured buttos--the classic 3 on the front, with the top one being ornamental since this is a 3/2 sack, and two at each cuff, in the classic style. This jacket is half-lined, and half-canvassed, and features the ever-desirable patch pockets! It has a single centre vent.

It was, of course, Union made in the USA.

This really is wonderful; I'm always conservative with vintage pieces, but this is very conservatively rated at Very Good/Excellent condition. As such, it's a steal at just $49, boxed and shipped in CONUS--with offers welcome!

2) NEVER WORN! STRIKING and beautiful scarlet jacket from The English Sports Shop of Bermuda!

SOLD

This is absolutely wonderful, and perfect for an Ivy summer! I have the full provenance on this jacket, and so can say with certainty that apart from being tried on it was never worn by its former owner. Described by the New York Times as offering clothing that is "vintage [i.e., classic] Preppy Handbook", this jacket is a beautiful example of their wares! Cut from lovely lightweight cloth in a striking tropical red, this is half-canvassed and fully lined in lightweight cream. It features three button cuffs, a single centre vent, and a contemporary two-button front. It has very natural shoulders.

This is, of course, in superb condition, having only ever been tried on--the front pockets are still sewn shut!

Asking just $45 for this new summer beauty, or offer.

3) Lovely silk or silk blend jacket

This is a very nice, easy-wearing jacket! Although there's no fabric content listed it;'s clearly silk, or a silk-blend, as it has the classic nubby texture of raw silk jackets. The colouring is also classic for silk summer wear, being a lovely pearl grey in a Donegal-esque patterning. This jacket is a contemporary two-button front, has four button cuffs, and is in Very Good/Excellent condition.

Asking just $22, or offer.

4) FANTASTIC original 1960's "Mad Men" conservative cotton 3/2 summer jacket!

SOLD

THIS IS AWESOME! This is exactly the sort of jacket Don Draper would have worn in the summer! This ORIGINAL 1960's Ivy Style jacket is cut as a 3/2 sack and has a wonderful lapel roll. The colourway is wonderful--a conservative dark check that makes this utterly versatile. The last jacket I had like this received several offers very quickly, so if you'd like it, I suggest you move fast!

It was Union-Made in Philadelphia by PBM, one of the great American clothiers that is often overshadowed by H. Freeman, Corbin, and Southwick, despite having exceptionally high quality goods--some of my favourite tweeds have been from PBM.

Plus, this jacket is a "Trendsetter Original"--beautifully 1960s!

This jacket has the classic two button cuffs, is half-lined, and appears to be half-canvassed. It is a 3/2 sack with a lovely lapel roll and a single centre vent. It's an original 1960's jacket, and it does have two minor flaws--a slight mark in the lining from ink (possibly acquired around 1967!), and the start of a pull at the left-hand corner of the front chest pocket. This is almost unnoticeable--I literally discovered it just now while checking the jacket for the fifth time--but it could do with a small fix--an easy $10 job from any dry cleaner tailor.

Because of these two flaws, this jacket is in Very Good vintage condition, and hence is just $27, OR OFFER, boxed and shipped in CONUS!

Measurements:

Chest: 20 3/4
Sleeve: 25 1/4 (+1)
Shoulder: 17 3/4
Length: 29 1/2

5) English Lawn Tennis Summer Blazer!


SOLD

This is a lovely, classic summer blazer for the Anglophile! Cut from medium-lightweight cloth in a lovely rich shade of blue, this is part of Lord & Taylor's Wimbledon collection, and was approved by the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club. It has a contemporary two button front and four buttons cuffs. It is fully lined in a lovely boating jacket lining that's perfect for an English summer garden party. It has a single centre vent and the ever-desirable patch pockets! This was Made in the USA.

This is in Very Good/Excellent condition, and is a steal at just $30, or offer!

Chest: 21 1/4
Sleeve: 25 (+2 1/4)

6) 38R PURE LINEN jacket by Boss--Made in Italy.

Boss gets little love here--and it shouldn't, at full retail. But sometimes it manages to produce a gem of a jacket--like this one! Made in Italy, this is cut from pure linen, giving it a wonderful drape and making it exceptionally soft. It has a modern 3 button front, and is unvented, in Flusser-approved style. It is half-lined, and features the ever-desirable patch pockets. This is in absolutely excellent condition!

The original discounted retail was $279, so how about $39, boxed and shipped in CONUS--a discount of $240! wink.gif

7) BEAUTIFUL & CLASSIC Gingham jacket by Hardwick!

Like PBM, Hardwick is one of the more overlooked American trad. clothiers--a pity, as their lighter-weight clothes have been Ivy summer staples for years. And this beautiful gingham jacket shows why. Made in the USA, this jacket is wonderfully versatile--as comfortable as seersucker of vintage Madras, but with a more subdued patterning, and hence much easier to wear. This jacket is fully lined in an ivory-coloured lining, has a single centre vent, a two button front, and three button cuffs. Although there is no fabric content listed it is clearly cotton. It was made in the USA, and is in absolutely superb condition.

Asking just $35, or offer.
