SOLD! MADE IN ITALY 3/2 sack summer plaid jacket for Faconnable--with custom brass tennis buttons!

SOLD! MADE IN ITALY 3/2 sack summer plaid jacket for Faconnable--with custom brass tennis buttons!

MADE IN ITALY 3/2 sack summer plaid jacket for Faconnable--with custom brass tennis buttons, MADE IN ENGLAND!

Founded in Nice, France, in 1950, Faconnable specializes in traditional clothing with a subtle French twist--and has long had an affection for Ivy Style, as demonstrated by this lovely summer jacket, the cousin to that which I've just posted!

Made in Italy, this is cut as a 3/2 sack from very lightweight summer wool. The patterning and colourway are lovely--a traditional gingham-esque pattern in the subdued brown shades of dusk on a summer evening. This jacket is half-canvassed and fully lined. It features four button cuffs and a twin vent, true to its Continental heritage. It also features a fully functional throat latch!

This jacket has has after-market buttons added to the front and the cuffs. Made in England, these are solid brass and feature crossed tennis racquets and a tennis next. Because these are solid brass they're a little bit heavy for the lightweight wool fabric, and I would advise changing them for lighter buttons. This is an easy job, and I could have this done if you wish for an additional $15. (I'll send along the brass tennis buttons in the pocket!)

It is in excellent condition.
