GRAIL! Pure Cashmere 3/2 sack from Chipp--tailor to JFK! Fully canvassed. c.40L

GRAIL! Pure Cashmere 3/2 sack from Chipp--tailor to JFK! Fully canvassed. c.40L

Chipp needs no introduction here--they were one of the best tailors in New York (JFK was one of their clients), and THE Ivy Style tailor, being responsible for inventing the Ivy GTH staple of embroidered trousers.

Chipp's products are invariably absolutely first rate, and this beautiful cashmere 3/2 sack is no exception. Cut from pure cashmere--and not the thin mall stuff that's so common nowadays, but the wonderfully rich and soft cashmere that earned this cloth its reputation--in a lovely tan and cream bareleycorn weave, this jacket is cut as a classic 3/2 sack. It is fully canvassed and fully lined, and has lapped seams across the shoulders and down the center back. It features two button cuffs and a single center vent. It was, of course, Made in New York. It does have one small issue; the jetted pockets have started to sag slightly on the leading edge, as can be seen in the pictures. This could be rectified either by pressing, or, perhaps, by pressing and then basting shut to retain their shape. This is a common problem with jetted pockets, especially in fabrics such as cashmere, but because of this this jacket is in Very Good condition, and hence is a steal at just $45 > 39, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA.
