1) GORGEOUS Custom-Made Tweed Suit, by Brigg's of Providence.

SOLD

This is absolutely gorgeous! This was made for John Brill, Princeton class of '58, who grew up on the family farm in Delaware, and spent his summers throughout his life at the family compound in Maine. A skilled attorney, after graduating from the University of Virginia law school he practiced law at the top white-shoe firm in Rhode Island, specializing in protecting family capital. He loved country pursuits, especially fishing, and had this suit made for the more formal country events in Maine and Delaware.

Sensibly, he chose Brigg's for his clothing, the traditional Ivy store of Providence, a worthy rival to Press and (old school) Brooks up the road in Boston. This suit is absolutely beautiful. Cut from sturdy basketweave tweed in cream, light brown, peat, and loden green, it is cut as a traditional English three button country jacket, with slightly oversized pocket flaps and finished cuff buttonholes. The jacket is fully canvassed and half-lined in a beautiful and country-appropriate loden green lining which picks out the loden green in the tweed weave.

The trousers are flat-front and cuffed, and feature an on-seam ticket pocket at the waistband. This suit was built on 25th January, 1979... almost 37 years ago to the day! However, you couldn't tell this from looking at it--it's in absolutely excellent condition, and could easily have been made last week. The only flaw is a couple of tiny pinholes in the lining from a dry-cleaner tag, as shown.

Tweed suits of this quality are extremely rare, so if this is your size, grab it! Asking just $89, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA.

Chest: 20 3/4
Sleeve: 26 (+1)
Shoulder: 18 1/8
Length: 31 1/2

Waist: 16 1/2 (+2)
Inseam: 32, with a 1 3/4 cuff (+1 1/4)

2) LOVELY Vintage Glen Plaid Tweed suit. Made in the USA.

This is lovely! Union-Made in the USA, the glen plaid patterning of this suit is a subtle and unusual combination of classic black and cream glen plaid patterning, with subtle single-thread overchecking in beautiful sunset orange and sky blue. This suit appears to be half-canvassed, and it is half-lined. It has a single centre vent, and a contemporary two button closure with subtle darting. The buttons are lovely, and unusual! The trousers are flat-front.

This suit is in excellent condition, and is a bargain at just $49 > $45 or offer.

Measurements:

Chest: 20 1/8
Sleeve: 24 1/2 (+1 1/2)
Shoulders: 17 1/2
Length: 29

Waist: 18
Inseam: 29 5/8 (+2 1/4)

3) Anderson-Little Vintage three-piece tweed suit.

This is wonderful! Cut from a classic brown herringbone tweed, this is a truly lovely and rare three piece tweed suit, an item that's becoming increasing rare, and correspondingly sought after. The jacket is a contemporary two button front jacket with subtle darting; it is half-canvassed and half-lined. It has a single centre vent, and four button cuffs with finished faux buttonholes. The vest is a classic single-breasted vest with two functional front pockets. The trousers are flat-front and uncuffed.

This suit was Union Made in the USA.

This is in excellent condition except for two tiny pinhole holes on the front of the trousers, as shown. These are tiny--I only found then when doing close-up photography--and so could easily be repaired if you so desire. They are likely the result of pins; they are not moth, or tears! Given this, however, this suit is in Very Good/Excellent condition.

Asking just $59 > 50, or offer--a real steal for a tweed three piece that was Made in the USA!

Measurements:

Chest: 22 1/2
Sleeve: 26 1/2 (+1 3/4)
Shoulder: 18
Length: 31 1/2

Waist: 19
Inseam: 31 3/4 (+3)

Width of vest: 22
Length from tip to tip: 26 1/2

4) Brooks Brothers "Brookscool" navy 3/2 sack suit in poplin.


SOLD

This is lovely! Cut from Brooks Brothers' contemporary Brookscool poplin, 52% cotton, 18% polyester, 30% coolmax fabric. this is a classic navy blue 3/2 sack suit with the ever-desirable patch pockets with flaps. It appears to be half-canvassed, and it is half-lined. It has a single centre vent. The trousers are flat front and cuffed. This has a very small mark on the front, as shown; this is faint, and should easily come out with dry cleaning. It also has a tiny rub wear on the edge of the right-hand cuff, as shown. As such, this is in Very Good condition, and so is a bargain at

just $45, or offer.

5) Classic Grey Pinstripe 3/2 sack suit by Corbin.

Corbin is one of my favourite American clothiers, and this wonderful classic suit shows why. Cut from classic, conservative grey pinstripe, this is a very high-roll 3/2 sack. It appears to be full canvass, and is half lined. It has a single centre vent, and three kissing button cuffs. It has very natural shoulders. The trousers are flat-front and cuffed. It's in absolutely excellent condition, and was, of course, Union Made in teh USA--Corbin does not run offshore manufacturing!
