CLASSIC LINEN JACKET--from Simpson's of Piccadilly!

I've outlined the storied history of Simpson's on my Facebook page, WaterhollowTweed--so this is a chance to secure a lovely piece of wearable history!

Cut from a wonderfully soft and clearly expensive linen (like all cloth, there are gradations of quality in linen, and this is at the high end) this lovely jacket is a contemporary two button model with darting. Featuring a double vent--as you'd expect from a jacket from Simpson's--this is a classic light taupe linen making it extremely versatile and suitable for almost all occasions. It is fully canvassed and fully lined, and features four-button finished English cuffs. The buttons are all Simpson's signature buttons, with the DAKS logo. (DAKS was the original clothier company that led to the founding of the retail store Simpson's.) This jacket was made in South Africa--appropriately enough, given that this sis a linen jacket for hot weather, and retailed by a British company with strong Empire connections! Apart from some minor sagging on the edges of the left-hand interior pocket this is in excellent condition.

Asking just $40, or offer, for this lovely piece of sartorial history!
