Classic Vintage Brooks Brothers "Wash and Wear" Jacket in Rare Pattern!

This jacket is absolutely lovely. Judging by the interior label (yellow block letters on a white background) this dates from the late 1960s--although you'd never guess this from its condition! Cut as a two button sack this is made from "Wash and Wear" fabric--the staple cloth of Ivy Style clothing in the 1960s. Usually, "Wash and Wear" jackets and suits were solid colours, and so this is highly unusual in that it features a beautiful multi-coloured overcheck (in red, yellow, green,and light blue) on light blazer-blue base.

This jacket features a single center vent, the classic American two button cuff, and a half-lining. Wonderfully lightweight, this is an absolutely perfect summer blazer, suitable for both casual settings and the modern office. It does have a couple of very minor scuffs, as shown, but these are hard to find and will hardly be seen when worn. It was, of course, Made in the USA, and is in Very Good/Excellent condition.

Asking just $45 > 35, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA. International inquires are welcome, with shipping at reduced cost!

Please PM with interest and offers!
