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

SOLD

THIS IS WONDERFUL! ss

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

$35, or offer.

2) 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 $45, or offer.

3) SPECTACULAR and RARE Harris Tweed!

This is a wonderful jacket, and if it was just a bit smaller there's no way that it would be here, as I love the more unusual yet classic Harris patterns. Cut from a lovely traditional weight Harris Tweed, the patterning and colourway of this jacket are both wonderful. The base is a traditional and classic cream, slate grey, and peat black houndstooth; this is overlaid with windowpane overchecking in russet, the colour of bracken in late autumn. This really is a beautiful jacket!

It's a contemporary two button model, with subtle darts. It has three button cuffs. All of the buttons are traditional the traditional metal-shanked, leather-covered buttons that go so well with Harris--here, they're a lovely shade of rich chestnut that complements the overchecking perfectly. The jacket is half-canvassed and half-lined, and has a single centre vent. It was Union Made in the USA--and is in absolutely excellent condition!

Asking just $35, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA.

And this is an absolutely lovely example. Cut as a traditional 3/2 sack, the colourway and patterning of the tweed is a wonderful checked medly of autumnal brackens, browns, and chestnuts with accents of golden wheat..

14) 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 $24, or offer, for this little gem!

15) 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 $24, or offer.

16) 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.

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

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.

18) 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.

19) 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.

20) 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.

Measurements:

Chest: 20 3/4
