1) Oxxford Alpaca/Wool minature windowpane jacket.

SOLD

This is absolutely gorgeous! Made by Oxxford--one of the premier American clothiers--for Bergdorf Goodman, this beautiful jacket features a miniature windowpane check on a base of mid-navy blue; the checking is in complementary blue and lichen green. The jacket is cut from cloth that's a blend of Alpaca and wool, giving it a beautiful hand and wonderful drape. Made in 1996, this could just have easily been retailed last week; it's in absolutely excellent condition.

The jacket is half-lined and fully canvassed, and you'd expect from Oxxford. Oxxford's "Manhattan" model, this is very subtly darted and has a single centre vent and four button cuffs.

The original retail on this was astronomical, so how about $65, or offer, boxed and shipped? smile.gif

This is a lovely, beautiful, classic Harris tweed jacket from one of the traditional clothiers operating in Princeton during the height of the Golden Era of Ivy Style. Cut from a lovely--and increasingly rare--basketweave Harris tweed in shades of brown, cream, and peat black, this is a contemporary two button jacket with subtle darts. The buttons are all metal shanked leather covered football buttons that are the perfect complement to Harris, and these are in a lvely shade of chestnut brown. The jacket has a single centre vent and is half lined. It was, of course, Made in the USA, and is in excellent condition.

3) VINTAGE Dunn & Co. Harris Tweed jacket. MADE IN BRITAIN!

SOLD

Dunn & Co Harris Tweed jackets are THE classic British Harris tweed jackets! This is Harris Tweed as you want it to be;seriously thick, sturdy, heavy, and slightly bristly. Dunn & Co jackets had their heyday in the 1960s, when they were sought after by American academic on sabbatical at Oxford or Cambridge, who considered them to be both quintessentially British and exceptionally good value.

This jacket carries its heritage extremely well, being thick, heavy, and sturdy--it's a testament to the quality of this jacket that the tweed shell appears none the worse for wear in the slightest despite been almost half a century old. The tweed is a lovely basketweave, with shades of black, gold, cream, and forest green--a wonderfully 1960s tweed! This is a classic three-button front British jacket--proudly Made in Britain--and is darted, as jackets made from this degree of tweed should be. It has a single centre vent and single button cuffs. (Please note that the cuff buttons have been replaced, and are not perfect matches to the front buttons.) It is half-lined--although the lining has suffered some minor staining and fraying, as shown. Given this, this is in Good/Very Good condition.

Asking just $35, or offer.

4) TRAD/IVY GRAIL! Langrock of Princeton Glen Plaid 3/2 sack jacket

THIS IS WONDERFUL!

Langrock was THE Ivy store in Princeton during the heyday of the Golden Era of Ivy Style; indeed, during the 1980s it ran an ad. boldly proclaiming that it was the ONLY store in America that adhered to the American Look--an utterly unveiled criticism of Press, Brooks, and its local rivals The English Shop, Hilton, and Ballot's. And Langrock meant this; everything it sold was classically Ivy; nothing darted was ever allowed to be sold... a decison that unfortunately led to Langrock's demise when fashions changed.

This jacket shows just why Langrock was so influential. Cut from a beautifully soft woolen cloth in a classic yet bold Glen Plaid in autumnal bracken, peat, and cream, this jacket is absolutely wonderful and utterly Ivy. It is a 3/2 sack--of course!--with a lovely fluid lapel roll. It two button cuffs, is fully canvassed, and features the ever-desirable two patch and flapped front pockets. It has a single centre hook vent. Naturally, it was Made in the USA. It is half-lined.

The exterior tweed is in excellent condition; there is, however, some staining and fraying in the lining at the armpits; the fraying could be easily patched, and not only won't be seen when worn, but can only be seen if you're checking for damage there. Because of this, however, this jacket is in Very Good condition, and hence is an absolute steal at just

$45, or offer.

5) CLASSIC Brown Herringbone Harris Tweed

The brown herringbone, like its cousin, the grey herringbone, are the two foundational staples of every man's classic wardrobe--so if you don't have a brown herringbone, and this is your size, grab it!

This is a lovely, heathery, mossy, brown herringbone, cut from classic Harris Tweed. This is a contemporary two button front jacket with subtle darts and three button cuffs. It is fully-lined, and features a single centre vent. It is a very recent jacket, and is virtually unworn; indeed, the basting threads are still evident in the opened front pockets, and it still retains its original spare button (included). It has one small flaw--a weaver's missed stitch on the front near the hem, which was there since the jacket was new as it is a flaw in the handwoven fabric. This jacket is in excellent condition, and is a steal at just

$39, or offer.

6) VINTAGE 1960s two-button sack; utterly Ivy 1960s!

SOLD

This is wonderful! Dating from 1966, this is a rare two button sack jacket, cut with beautifully narrow 1960s lapels, and a wonderful lapel roll! This jacket is a wonderful example of conservative yet fashionable 1960s tailoring; the beautifully soft fabric is a wonderful dark burgundy vase with a a miniature geometric overchecking in jet black--a wonderfully 1960s pattern and colourway!

In addition to being beautifully cut the jacket is also fully canvassed and features a twin vent, a nod to the increasing English influence in tailoring and music at the time. It has all of its original 1960s buttons, and features two button cuffs. It's half-lined, and in absolutely excellent condition--the only flaw is some easily repaired fraying at the hem, as shown, and some fraying on the surface of the original 1960s interior lapel.

This lovely jacket is ready to serve you for another half-century, and is a steal at just

$29, or offer.

8) ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS! Nick Hilton grey herringbone by Samuelsohn, with HOLLAND & SHERRY cloth!

This is stunning!

It's hard to know where to start in describing this jacket, so let's start with the cloth. An absolutely beautiful classic mid-grey herringbone, the cloth is by Holland & Sherry of Savile Row, London--who justly claim to provide the best cloths in the world. And this is no exception; beautifully soft with a wonderful hand and drape, the quality of this can be seen before it is felt.

The tailoring of the jacket fully lives up to the quality of the cloth that it is cut from. Made by Samuelsohn in Canada, this is impeccable; a three button front with darts, hinting at the English military heritage of Holland & Sherry, this is fully canvassed and fully lined. It's absolutely beautifully made, with kissing four button cuffs and a twin vent. (This jacket was a Made to measure garment.) It was retailed by nick Hilton of Princeton--the son of Norman Hilton, one of the great Ivy clothiers.

It is in absolutely excellent condition.

This is a truly gorgeous jacket; new, it cost a fortune, but now, it's a steal at just $65, or offer.
