SOLD! GORGEOUS Hand Tailored 3/2 sack Tweed Jacket for The English Shop of Princeton. c.44L.

SOLD! GORGEOUS Hand Tailored 3/2 sack Tweed Jacket for The English Shop of Princeton. c.44L.

The English Shop of Princeton was one of the Big Five Ivy clothiers located in Princeton during the Golden Age of Ivy Style--its closest competitors were Langrock and Hilton--and this lovely jacket shows why. Hand-tailored, this is a classic 3/2 sack tweed with a lovely lapel roll. The cloth is wonderful--a complex broken bone herringbone with vertical striping in chestnut brown and sky blue. It is fully canvassed and half-lined, and has two button cuffs. It has a single centre vent, and was almost certainly made in the USA.

It does have a small ink stain on the lining by the left-hand pocket; this gives it a rather professorial character, but because of this it is only in Very Good condition, and so is just $39, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA... a bargain for a Hand Tailored 3/2 sack tweed from The English Shop!

International inquiries are welcome, with shipping at cost! Please PM with interest and offers!
