    This is absolutely wonderful--a J. Press 3/2 sack tweed stroller!

    The "stroller"--a jacket with matching waistcoat, but with no matching trousers--has by now almost vanished from American wardrobes, but it still has its devotees can can still be purchased from some of the few remaining bastions of true Ivy style, such as, of course, J. Press.

    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.. The jacket itself is from J. Press' "Presstige" line, and is half-canvassed and fully lined. It was Made in Canada, and features three button cuffs and a classic single hooked vent. The vest features a fully functional back adjuster and peak lapels. Naturally, all of the front pockets are fully functional also.

    This stroller is in absolutely excellent condition, having been worn sparingly by one very careful owner--I have the full provenance.

    Asking just $85 > 75 > 65, OR OFFER, boxed, shipped, and insured in the USA. International inquiries welcome, with shipping at cost.

    Tagged a 46R, this measures:

    Chest: 22 3/4
    Sleeve: 25 1/2 (+1 3/4)
    Shoulder: 19 3/4
    Length: 31 1/2

    Vest width across the fabric: 20 1/8
    Vest length, tip to tip: 26
