Founded in San Francisco in 1853 to provide clothing to persons made newly rich by the Gold Rush, Bullock & Jones became established as one of the premier purveyors of traditional clothing in San Francisco. They closed their signature Union Square store in 2002, and now only have an online presence.
This jacket shows why they were so well-liked for the century and a half that they operated in person. Cut from a lovely lightweight gingham-esque cloth that's a blend of mainly cotton, lycra, and polymide that feels to the touch to be a seersucker-type fabric. The patterning and colouring is lovely; a conservative gingham-esque blend of black, grey, and cream.
The jacket is a contemporary two button model; it is half-canvassed and fully lined. It has a single center vent, four button cuffs, and was, of course, Made in the USA. It is in excellent condition.
Asking just $35, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA. International offers welcome, with shipping at reduced cost. Please PM with interest and offers!
