1) J. Press Summer Summer 3/2 sack

SOLD

This is absolutely beautiful! Cut as a classic 3/2 sack, the patterning and colourway on this jacket are wonderful. The patterning is a summer version of a guncheck, with a classic cream base with a background check of beige; the overchecking is in the light blue of a morning sky in Scotland, moss green, maize yellow, and sepia tea rose pink.

The jacket is half-canvassed and fully lined, with three button cuffs and a single centre vent. It was Made in the USA. There is no fabric content listed, but I suspect that it is a linen or cotton blend, with wool..... I suspect this as it does have some very minor surface pilling in places, which indicates some cotton content. The jacket also has some minor water stains in the back shoulder area of the lining. Owing to these minor flaws--and they are minor!--this is just in Very Good condition, and hence is

just $45, or offer. This is truly a steal!

2) GORGEOUS J. Press "Presstige" Summer 3/2 sack, cloth by Magee of Ireland!

SOLD

(Claimed through my Facebook page, WaterhollowTweed--which is where many items are previewed!)


This is quite certainly someone's Grail jacket! First, the fabric. Loomed in Co. Donegal, Ireland, by Magee, the premier Irish clothiers, this is almost certainly Irish linen, possibly blended with lightweight wool to prevent rumpling while maintaining coolness. The patterning and colourway of this jacket are simply gorgeous; a classic herringbone in light Spring green with a windowpane overcheck in cornflower and sky blue. This jacket is absolutely beautiful!

It is from J. Press' "Presstige" line, and is cut as a classic 3/2 sack. It is half-canvassed and fully lined. It has a single centre vent and three button cuffs. It was Made in the USA and is in absolutely excellent condition.

Asking just $69, or offer.

3) BEAUTIFUL J. Press "Presstige" Summer 3/2 sack, cloth by Magee of Ireland!

This is also likely to be someone's Grail jacket! First, the fabric. Loomed in Co. Donegal, Ireland, by Magee, the premier Irish clothiers, this is almost certainly Irish linen, possibly blended with lightweight wool to prevent rumpling while maintaining coolness. The patterning and colourway of this jacket are simple, beautiful, and classic; a subdued lichen green herringbone with flecks of cream throughout!

It is from J. Press' "Presstige" line, and is cut as a classic 3/2 sack. It is half-canvassed and fully lined. It has a single centre vent and four button cuffs. It was Made Union made in the USA and is in absolutely excellent condition.

4) BEAUTIFUL Orvis 3/2 Jacket in Slubby Ivory Silk--with Patch Pockets!


This is beautiful! Cut with a classic American Ivy 3/2 lapel roll this jacket has very subtle darting giving it a trim and elegant silhouette. The cloth is a wonderful slubby silk in ivory, with plenty of interesting texture. The jacket is half-canvassed and fully lined, and features the always desirable patch pockets. It has three button cuffs, and a single centre vent. It does have a couple of minor blemishes just below the top button and to its right; one of these is concealed when worn by the lapel roll, while the other is barely noticeable--and in any case might come out with dry cleaning. Thee is also a barely noticeable blemish of the same sort on the right cuff. Given these, this jacket is in Very Good condition, and so is a steal at just

$35, or offer.

5) BEAUTIFUL Norman Hilton Linen 3/2 sack jacket

This is a wonderful summer classic--a light navy 3/2 sack blazer in linen from Norman Hilton! And this is no ordinary light navy blazer, but one cut from light navy herringbone cloth, providing a classic twist on a summer classic. Cut as a 3/2 sack, this lovely jacket is half-canvassed and fully lined. It has a single centre vent, and a centre lapped seam down the back. It has very natural shoulders, and four button cuffs. The buttons are the perfect shade of blonde to complement the jacket, and all are likely horn. This jacket was made in the USA for one of the last remaining Ivy Style retailers in Princeton from the Golden Age. It's in Very Good/Excellent condition.... all that prevents it from being in excellent condition is some minor sag at the lip of the interior pockets--something common to linen jackets and nothing that detracts from this garment when worn.

Asking just $45, or offer.

6) VINTAGE Wash-and-Wear 3/2 Glen Plaid Sack

This is terrific! A classic 3/2 sack straight from the Golden Age of Ivy Style; although the lower half of the Union tag is obscured this likely dates form between 1962 and 1968--although it is possibly older than this, this is unlikely, since this is cut Wash and Wear fabric.

As a classic 1960s jacket this has all of the details you want; a 3/2 sack with narrow lapels, two button cuffs, a centre lapped seam and a hook vent, and a half-lining. The patterning and colourway are classic late 1950s/early 1960s, being dull earthtones in a classic glen plaid.

This is in Very Good/Excellent condition--conservatively, since I'm always conservative with grading vintage clothing! It's also a rarer smaller size, and so is a steal at

just $29, or offer.

7) WONDERFUL Vintage Summer Plaid Jacket!

Who made this jacket? I've no idea... but it's clearly from the 1960s, judging by the lining and the subdued yet bold classic guncheck plaid! This is the perfect jacket to carry you through the late summer and into Fall; although there is no fabric content listed this is either lightweight wool, or, more likely, a wool-cotton blend, judging by the texture. It's certainly lighter weight and so perfect for warmer days.

The colorway and patterning are lovely, being checked in shades of burnished chestnut, dark peat, and autumnal bracken. It's also a rare two button sack jacket, with a centre vent and two button cuffs. It is half-canvassed and half-lined, and in Very Good/Excellent condition.

Asking just $29, or offer, for this little gem!

8) Chippworth by Chipp pale yellow Ivy summer hopsack jacket

This jacket is wonderful, and rare! It's an original example of the "Chippworth" line from the utterly Ivy tailoring firm Chipp of New York, which counted Ambassadors and Heads of State among its customers. The "Chippworth" line of menswear was aimed at the Ivy League set; here's the copy from the ad. announcing its unveiling in the Daily Princetonian on the 27th October, 1959:

"CHIPP EXHIBITING AT NASSAU INN TODAY AND TOMORROW Open 9 A.M.-9 P.M. Today — 9 AJM.-5 P.M. Tomorrow Introducing the Chippworth Chipp has developed a special line of clothing, to be known as Chippworth, designed to offer the basic suits needed in a university man's wardrobe.. Chippworth suits will take into consideration the differences in waist proportions and incorporate all important details found in our Chipp clothing, such as similar-in-cut lapel shape and front shape, hand sewn buttonholes and genuine horn buttons. The size range will be 36 through 44 Regular, in shorts 36-38-40, and 38 through 44 longs and extra longs coats and trousers. Trouser cut with 7'" drop up to size 40; 6" drop on all larger sizes. Fabrics: Flannel, hopsack and worsted. Price — $75.00 As is our usual custom, we will also exhibit the complete line of Chipp clothing and accessories."

This jacket lives up to Chipp's steller reputation! Cut from a lovely pale yellow hopsack cloth which is perfect for summer, it's a contemporary two-button jacket with subtle darting. It is half-canvassed, and half-lined, and has the classic Trad two buttons cuffs. It features a single centre hook vent and a lapped central seam down the back. It was, of course, Made in the USA--in fact, it was Made in New York!

It is in Very Good/Excellent condition, and is a bargain at just $29, or offer.

9) BEAUTIFUL Alan Royce of Princeton Seafoam Jacket


Alan Royce was one of the Big Five Princeton clothiers during the Golden Age of Ivy Style, and this jacket shows why. First, the colour is absolutely beautiful--the perfect summer shade of seafoam blue-green; my pictures don't do this justice at all!

Although there is no fabric content listed, it's either lightweight silk, or a blend of silk and linen; it's has a wonderful hand and drape, as is woven as a subtle broken bone herringbone. Cut as a contemporary two button jacket with subtle darts, this is half-canvassed and fully lined. It has four button cuffs and a single centre vent. It was, of course, Made in the USA. It does have one small flaw; a very faint shadow stain on the top left lapel, as shown. As such, this is just in Very Good condition, and is only $29, or offer.

Measurements:

Chest: 21 1/2
Sleeve: 24 3/4 (+2 1/4)
Shoulder: 18 3/4
Length: 30 1/2

10) Pure Silk Lightweight Brown Broken Herringbone Jacket


This is lovely! Although this is confusingly labelled both "Pure Silk" and "Pure Wool" it's clear that this is a lighter weight pure silk jacket, which is perfect for Spring, the cooler days of summer, and the warmer days of early Fall. The cloth is a lovely brown broken bone herringbone weave with very subtle mustard and russet overchecking. Cut as a contemporary two button jacket with subtle darts this is half-canvassed and fully lined. It has a single centre vent and three button cuffs. It was Made in the USA, and is in excellent condition.

Asking just $25, or offer.

First, this is a New Old Stock jacket, complete with all of its tags and its original hanger, from the preppy heyday of the late 1980s--owning this will be like travelling back in time! It's a wonderful, classic pure silk summer jacket cut from a wonderfully textured slubby silk by Hunting Horn, one of the classic preppy brands from J. Riggings. It features classic patch flapped pockets, four button cuffs, and a single centre vent. It is fully lined, and has all of its original tags intact. It even comes with its original hanger!

12) VINTAGE 1960s Summer Tobacco Brown 3/2 Sack jacket

UPDATED MEASUREMENTS!

This is a lovely classic 3/2 sack from the late 1960s, during the Golden Age of Ivy Style! No fabric content is listed, but this is clearly lightweight cotton, in a lovely shade of summer tobacco. This wonderful jacket is beautifully lightweight and perfect for hot summer days on the East Coast. Dating from the 1960s this has classic narrow lapels, a single hook vent, and two button cuffs. It is half-lined and half-canvassed. It was, of course, Union Made in the USA. I can't find any flaws at all, but this is a vintage piece, and so it's in Very Good/Excellent condition.

13) 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 $25, 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

14) 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 $20, or offer.

Chest: 21 3/4

15) BESPOKE summer jacket from Philadelphia tailor!

This is wonderful! Made by the upscale Philadelphia tailor Vittorio Castagna (then located on 17th street) in April 1973, this is a classic 1960's - 1970's plaid jacket that's perfect for summer--as indeed this is the season it was built for! It features a twin vent and hacking pockets, is fully canvassed, and has three button cuffs. It is darted, and has a two button closure. It is fully lined, and is in absolutely excellent condition. Castagna's relocated to Walnut Street in 1988, near Gucci, Burberry, Jaeger, and Duchamps. This is a lovely jacket, in absolutely excellent condition!

Just $17.
