This is absolutely gorgeous! Cut from wonderfully luxurious heavier medium-weight flannel cloth in classic dark navy blue, this blazer is a true GRAIL item--a Brooks Brothers flannel navy blazer with a 3/2 lapel roll! Although this has the traditional 3/2 lapel roll note that this is not a sack jacket, for it features subtle darts. The reason for this Brooks anomaly simple--this blazer was made for Brooks Brothers' "Brooksgate" line, which was aimed at younger men just starting their relationship with Brooks Brothers (hence, "Brooksgate" being the gateway to Brooks Brothers). Since younger men (at least when this jacket was made..) have not yet acquired the girth that might be needed to make a sack fit well without needing side seam alterations to taper it this jacket is darted for a sleeker fit.... although the 3/2 lapel is still present to introduce the Brooksgate customers to its elegance.
In addition to have a 3/2 lapel--with, here, a beautiful roll--this blazer also has the classic two button cuffs, and the highly desirable flapped patch pockets. All of the buttons are Brooks Brothers' "Brooksgate" buttons (no longer produced) and so are original to this jacket. This jacket is half-canvassed and half-lined, and has a single center vent. It was, of course, Union made in the USA, and is in absolutely excellent condition.
Asking just $45, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA for this wonderful jacket! International inquires welcome with shipping at reduced cost.
