7) c. 36R 3/2 sack in Summer Red for E.J. Hickey of Grosse Pointe, MI.


SOLD

Grosse Pointe is--and especially was--an extremely affluent waterfront suburb of Detroit, packed with large Georgian mansions on its wide tree-lined streets. E. J. Hickey was the clothier of choice for its inhabitants, providing the Ivy Style that they had got used to in college.

This little gem of a jacket shows that Hickey's could easily compete with The English Shop and Langrock's when it was at its best. Cut as a classic 3/2 sack jacket this is cut from absolutely beautiful summer red hopsack--a wonderful colour! It is half-canvassed and half-lined, and features the classic two button cuffs of a true Ivy jacket. It has a single centre vent, and was, of course, Made in the USA. It also features the ever-desirable patch pockets! This is in excellent condition, except for a small blemish on the back of one sleeve, as shown.

As such, this is in Very Good/Excellent condition, and so is just $40, or offer--a bargain for a jacket of this quality, in this size!

9) GORGEOUS Vintage Silk Jacket by DAKS, tailored in England by Simpson's of Piccadilly!

This is a stunning jacket!

DAKS was started in 1894 by Simeon Simpson as a bespoke tailoring operation, and quietly ran for 40 years in the original family until it soared to fame in 1934 after it produced the DAKS trouser--the first self-supporting trousers, that utilized elastic in the waistband and that sold for 30 shillings--a fortune at the time, when a whole bespoke suit could cost 50 shilling. So confident was the company of their success that they made up 100,000 pairs before announcing them to the public. They were an instant hit, and DAKS became a household term for high quality and innovative traditional clothing.

Fuelled by this success, Alexander Simpson, who was taking over the company, decided to open a store that focused on high-end clothing. This was Simpson's, and was opened in 1936 in Piccadilly, just by Savile Row... a marketing move that Alexander made deliberately, as he wanted his clients to be able to compare the quality of his goods to those of the Row.

SImpson never lost its concern with fine tailoring, and this gem of a jacket shows exactly how good their wares could be. Likely dating from the late 1950s or early 1960s, this beautiful jacket is cut from pure silk, although this isn't apparent at first sight, and the quality of the fabric is superb--beautifully soft and uniform in appearence, with just a hint of slubbiness to reveal its origins. The colour is a wonderful light orangey-tobacco; my pictures really don't do t justice at all. It has a traditionally British three button front with high lapels and darting; it also has the traditional British single button sleeves, and three patch pockets. It is absolutely beautifully cut, and is half canvassed and half lined.

It was Made in England.

At first sight it appears to be in excellent condition. However, close inspection reveals that it is starting to fray at the cuffs and teh hem--not unexpected for a pure silk jackets that's likely over half a century old. However, these frays are only JUST starting, and so could easily be repaired through darning.

Given these, however, this jacket is in Good/Very Good condition--this is a conservative estimate!--and so is a bargain at just $35, or offer.

Tagged 40R--this is a vintage sizing--this measures:

Chest: 21
Sleeve: 22 1/2 (+1 1/2)
Shoulder: 18
Length: 29 1/4

Asking just $25

11) VINTAGE 1960s three-button summer jacket

This is lovely! Utterly 1960s, this three-button sack jacket features classically narrow (but not too narrow) lapels, jetted pockets, unmistakably vintage 1960s buttons, two button cuffs, and a single centre vent. It is half-canvassed and half-lined in a classic 1950s - 1960s geometric pattern lining.

This jacket has no fabric content listed, but it appears to be a wool-cotton blend. The patterning and colourway are also pure (conservative) 1960s; this shade of dark green is just never seen outside of 1950s and 1960s tailoring, and the vertical stripes give this piece a classic vintage look.

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

Owing to its age this is just in Very Good condition, primarily because it has minor surface pilling throughout--as would any jacket of this vintage with this fabric content. But, this is perfectly wearable, and hence a steal at

just $22, or offer.

Measurements:


Chest: 21 3/4
Sleeve: 24 (+1 13/4)
Shoulder: 18 1/2
Length: 28 1/2
