IVY GRAIL! Langrock of Princeton Summer-weight Cashmere 2-button sack. c.46, 48L

IVY GRAIL! Langrock of Princeton Summer-weight Cashmere 2-button sack. c.46, 48L

IVY GRAIL! Langrock of Princeton Cashmere 2-button sack.

Langrock of Princeton was THE Ivy Style store; together with Norman Hilton, Alan Frank, the owner of Langrock, is largely credited with popularizing "The Natural Shoulder Ivy League Look". (It is, alas, a myth that he refused to sell anything darted; I have had several examples of darted Langrock blazers available!) Indeed, so iconic is Langrock that even Langrock labels are collectible.

This is a beautiful example of Langrock's wares. Although there is no fabric content listed this is clearly cut from thick, rich cashmere that is soft and lightweight enough to be appropriate for cooler summer evenings. The cloth features a lovely blue miniature overcheck on a cream base-again, perfect for summer. The jacket is a two button sack that is half-canvassed and fully lined. It has three button cuffs and a single center vent. It was, of course, Made in the USA... in 1973, as this was a custom order!

It does have a few minor issues. There is a water stain in the lining, as shown, and a couple of very faint marks on the front of the jacket. These might come out with dry cleaning, but in any case they can hardly be seen. Given these flaws, though, this beautiful jacket is just in Good/Very Good condition (mainly because of the lining!), and so is an absolute bargain at just

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

Please PM with interest and offers!
