SOLD! Classic Harris Tweed with Patch Pockets from PBM. Comes with original hanger! c.38

PMB--Pincus Bros Maxwell--was founded in 1911, and is one of the great traditional American clothiers, making most of their items in Philadelphia, hence the Liberty Bell on their labels. This jacket was made by PBM for DiTorio's of Pennington, NJ.

Pennington found fame in Frederick Forsyth's novel, *Avenger*, where it was accurately described as a classic Revolutionary War small town, inhabited mainly by old-money families who preferred its quiet to the bustle of nearby Princeton. DiTorio's used to be THE classic old-money clothier of Pennington, specializing, like Langrock, in the Waspy Anglophile Ivy look. Like Langrock, DiTorio's is long gone, but some of its wares occasionally surface from the cedar closets that they have been carefully stored in--and this Harris Tweed jacket is a lovely case in point!

Made from a beautiful and increasingly rare basketweave in shades of grey, cream, and brown Harris Tweed cloth this lovely jacket is a contemporary two button front with darts. It is half-canvassed and half-lined. It has a single center vent and three button cuffs--all of the buttons are a lovely light chestnut leather, with meta shanks, as is proper for Harris Tweed. This jacket also features the ever-desirable patch pockets! It was, of course, Made in the USA--in Philadelphia!--and it is in excellent condition.
