SOLD! LOVELY SMALL Harris Tweed Jacket from Ivy clothier ** Keats. FREE SHIPPING, OFFERS WELCOME!

** Keats was a pioneer of a "weekends only, membership only" approach to retail. Founded in 1981, during the week they manufactured very traditional, and very expensive, clothing at their Philadelphia location; at weekends they ceased manufacturing, and opened their doors to persons who had registered (as "members") to shop at their Factory Store.

Although their clothes were wonderful and this approach to retail was successful (leading to a second outlet being opened in DC) ** Keats was linked to another company, Vertical Apparel Planning, which was unsuccessful--and when it folded took ** Keats down with it, with Keats having to liquidate its stock and then be sold (in November 1988 to Stanley Blacker) to cover the losses of VAP.

This Harris Tweed jacket--made by ** Keats--is thus a reminder of a almost-forgotten by-way in American retail history.

It's also absolutely beautiful. Cut from a traditional Harris Tweed herringbone cloth, the colourway is wonderful--a subtle heathered mix of browns, greys, and slates, reminiscent of peat smoke over a Highland bothy on an early November evening. Cut as a contemporary two-button jacket with very subtle darts, this features the classic leather-covered metal-shanked football buttons that go so well with tweed. This jacket is half-canvassed and fully lined, and was, of course, Made in the USA. It has a single center vent, and is in absolutely beautiful condition.

This would be a wonderful addition to any wardrobe, and will give you decades of service!

Asking just $45, or offer!
