DROP! JUST $29! UTTERLY IVY! A wonderful summer jacket in pale pink herringbone!

UTTERLY IVY! A wonderful jacket (likely silk and linen) in pale pink herringbone, by Oakloom Clothes of Baltimore, MD!

Oakloom Clothes had an unusual business model--they declined to advertise, considering this to be "vulgar", and relied on the quality of their clothing to speak for itself. No doubt this reticence kept Oakloom from the success that it deserved, for the quality of their clothing was first-rate. They made clothes for Paul Stuart, Bullock & Jones of San Francisco, and Maus and Hoffman in Palm Beach, FL. They specialized in classic, Ivy Style clothing, and this was continued when they were bought out in 1995 by Hartz & Co who wanted to use them as an entry into "the better part of the upper market".

This jacket shows just why Oakloom were so beloved by the few familiar with their clothing. This jacket is cut from a wonderful pale pink and cream herringbone cloth that's likely a blend of linen and silk. The herringbone is accented with vertical stripes in pale green, blue, and sunset gold. The jacket is cut as a contemporary two button jacket with subtle darts. It is half-canvassed and fully lined in cream.

It has a single center vent. Union made in the USA, this is in excellent condition.

Asking just $39, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA. International inquiries welcome!

Please PM with interest and offers!
