1) BEAUTIFUL Anglophile Guncheck, Made in France by Korn of Paris!

This is absolutely exquisite! Made in France by Korn of Paris, this is fully canvassed and fully lined, and exemplifies the French love of the upper-class English country look. (The Bon Chic Bon Genre--BCBG--French look draws heavily on the fabrics and colorways on the English upper classes, with gunchecks and windowpanes being perennial favourites!) Cut from a beautiful British country green twill with a complementary windowpane overcheck in rich chestnut and bracken, the patterning and colourway of this wonderful jacket are perfect. It's a contemporary two button model with darting and three button cuffs. It features an Anglophilia twin vent.

Asking just $35 > 29, or offer.

2) Lovely British Guncheck, Made in the UK.

This is a lovely, classic English jacket! Made in the UK, this is a traditional guncheck in a medley of bracken, peat black, forest green and moss green, on a traditional tan base. Half-canvassed and fully lined, this is a contemporary two-button front model, with subtle darting and two button cuffs. As you'd expect fom an English sporting jacket this has twin vents. It's in absolutely excellent condition.

Asking just $35 > 32, or offer.

3) CLASSIC IVY/TRAD 3/2 sack tweed from NORMAN HILTON

This is beautiful! Made by Normal Hilton, one of the great trad. clothiers of Princeton, along with Langrock, Ballot, The English Shop, and The Princeton Clothing Co., this is cut from a traditional and classic brown herringbone tweed. IT HAS ALL OF THE TRAD DESIDERATA! This is, first, a tweed 3/2 sack. It also has lapped seams along the sleeves, across the shoulders, and down the centre back, as well as a single hook vent with a lapped seam. It is half lined, and half canvassed. It has two button cuffs; the buttons are all likely horn. It has lovely natural shoulders! It was, of course, Made in the USA!

The interior label has been removed--although it still carries the Hilton label in the inside of the interior pocket--otherwise this is in absolutely excellent condition.

4) WONDERFULLY TEXTURED DONEGAL-ESQUE TWEED!

This is a wonderfully textured tweed! Cut from a beautifully slubby Donegal-sque cloth, the most striking feature of this tweed is its wonderful texture, reminiscent of dry stone walls in Co. Sligo and the rough-hewn stones of a barn's foundation. The colourway does full justice to the texture; a lovely heathery mix of browns, creams, mochas, and peats. The cut of the tweed matches its casual country texture; two large patch pockets adorn the front, suede elbow patches protect the sleeves, and the buttons are all leather-clad, metal shanked football buttons. It is a contemporary two button front with subtle darting, and was Made in the USA. It's in excellent condition.

Asking just $29 > 25, or offer.

5) Classic Brown Herringbone Tweed--with patch pockets!

This is a lovely classic brown herringbone tweed, with the ever-desirable and increasingly rare patch pockets, complete with pocket flaps! This is a contemporary two button front model with subtle darts. It has three button cuffs; all of its buttons are the traditional leather-covered metal-shanked football buttons. It has a single vent, and was, of course, Made in the USA. It's in excellent condition.

This was sold at Maury Robinson's, the upscale clothier in Trenton--when Trenton was itself upscale. Robinson's gained some measure of fame when it managed to "poach" Vincenzo Paxia, one of the better tailors in the area, from Langrock of Princeton! As an aside, Vincenzo is still tailoring, aged 81, from his home in Trenton.

Asking just $25, or offer.

6) WONDERFUL Princeton Clothing Co. 3/2 sack tweed.

SOLD

Solid colour tweeds are rather rare, and this is a lovely example. Made by The Princeton Clothing Company--one of the traditional Trad. clothiers of the Golden Age of Ivy Style--this has all of the Trad/Ivy desiderata. Cut as a 3/2 sack, it has large, deep, flapped patch pockets on the front, as well as a lapped center seam, and a single hook vent--which also features a lapped horizontal seam! This jacket is half-canvassed and half-lined, and was Union made in the USA in the late 1960s. It has, of course, two button cuffs.

This does have a small blemish--shown--on the bottom edge of the left-hand patch pocket, as shown. Because of this, this is just in Good/Very Good condition, and hence is just $25, or offer.

Measurements:

Chest: 22
Sleeve: 26 1/4 (+2)
Shoulder: 18 3/4
Length: 32
