CLASSIC Harris Tweed Jacket from DiTorio's of Pennington, NJ. Connection to Frederick Forsyth! c.38

CLASSIC Harris Tweed Jacket from DiTorio's of Pennington, NJ. Connection to Frederick Forsyth! c.38

This was originally sold by DiTorio's of Pennington, NJ--an extremelytrad. clothier, now long gone, that catered to the more rurally inclined trads of neighbouring Princeton. Pennington itself is a beautiful pre-Revolutionary War small town; the cemetery on Main Street is bounded by a wall that British troops exercised their horses over in 1775, and Frederick Forsyth set the start of his novel Avenger in Pennington, as embodying classic small town America.

This jacket embodies the wares that were offered by DiTorio's. Cut from a very sturdy, heavier-weight Harris Tweed of a heft that gave Harris its worldwide reputation and is now increasingly rare, this is a lovely classic grey herringbone that is accented with classic Harris tweed vertical stripes in chestnut brown and sky blue. It appears to be half-canvassed, and it is half-lined. It features a single center vent and three button cuffs. It was Made in the USA, and is in absolutely excellent condition--the top breast pocket is still basted shut!

Asking just $35, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA. International inquiries welcome, with shipping at cost.

Please PM with interest and offers!
