Founded in 1962, Smith's of Bermuda was most definitely a British company, catering primarily to British and American tourists, as well as the local ex-pat population. With its headquarters in Hertfordshire, UK, it specialized in traditional British and Empire clothing and accessories, like its main rival, Trimingham's.
Now long gone, having closed its doors in 2002, Smith's name lives on... as an upscale woman's store in Maclean, Va., which has precisely nothing to do with the original British-owned Smith's, and which is no doubt capitalizing on memories of its illustrious predecessor.
This jacket is from the *correct* Smith's! Cut as a contemporary two-button front jacket with subtle darts, this is a lovely cream summer jacket cut from cloth that's almost certainly a silk-linen blend. It features two lower patch pockets, three button cuffs, and no vent, in Flusser-approved style. It is fully canvassed and fully lined, and, unusualy for Smith's, is USA Made in the USA.
It is in absolutely excellent condition, and a steal at just $35, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA!
