    1) BEAUTIFUL and STRIKING Plaid Tweed!

    This is terrific! Cut from a wonderfully striking and beautiful plaid tweed, this is a perfect Fall and Winter tweed, which would be absolutely wonderful with khakis, cords, or grey flannels! The colourway is just terrific--a slate-grey background with a bold cream overcheck, a bold burnt orange overcheck, and also subtle overhecks in pale lichen blue and green. Wonderful! It's half-canvassed, half-lined, and features elbow patches (which are original to it) in a lovely slate grey, which complement perfectly the slate-grey base colouring. It has a single center vent, is subtley darted, and features four cuff buttons. It was Union made in the USA, and is in excellent condition.

    7) STUNNING Nick Hilton Wool and Cashmere Made in Italy herringbone jacket!

    My pictures come nowhere close to capturing the true beauty of this jacket!

    This is STUNNING! Cut from a beautiful cloth (95% wool, 5% cashmere) with a superb hand and drape, the colourway of this jacket is simply wonderful--a classic light brown herringbone with a perfectly complementary overcheck of subtle cornflower blue. Beautiful! The jacket is also half-canvassed, and fully lined in a wheatgold lining that brings out the cornflower overcheck perfectly, as well as blending with the herringbone. It is subtle darted, has a two button closure, and four button cuffs. It was made in Italy for Nick Hilton, whose jackets have recently been receiving widespread praise. And this shows why! This is in excellent condition.
