GRAIL ITEM! 3/2 sack Jacket in Boating Stripe!

This is absolutely wonderful! Made by Gordon of Philadelphia--one of the stalwart makers of traditional American clothing--this is cut as a classic 3/2 sack. But what makes this jacket really special is the pattern and colourway of the cloth that it's cut from, which is the classic bold vertical stripes of a traditional Anglo-American boating jacket. This is very rarely seen nowadays--a great pity, as this style of jacket was one of the summer classics back in the heyday of Ivy Style.

The cloth is a lighter mid-weight wool; this jacket is also fully canvassed and half-lined. It has the traditional two button cuffs of a 3/2 sack, and a single center vent. It has very natural shoulders. It does have the start of some minor fraying at the cuffs, as shown--this has just started, though, and would be an easy fix for even a dry-cleaner tailor. It also has a small thread bump on the front--likely there since new--and a small rub at the leading edge of one of the interior pockets. Because of these min or issues, this wonderfully rare jacket is in Very Good condition, and so a bargain at

just $49, OR OFFER, boxed and shipped in the USA. International inquiries are welcome, with shipping at reduced cost. Please PM with interest and offers!
