SOLD! VINTAGE Lighter-weight Summery Jacket by Fred. Donnelly, of Trenton!

SOLD! VINTAGE Lighter-weight Summery Jacket by Fred. Donnelly, of Trenton!

This jacket was originally sold by Fred. Donnelly, of Trenton--back when Trenton was FAR wealthier and WASP than its neighbour, Princeton. F.W. Donnelly was THE exclusive men's haberdashers, and considered itself to cater to a far more sophisticated and worldly clientele that their Princeton rivals, such as Langrock or The English Shop, with their reliance on undergraduates and academics. Donnelly's catered to the political elite of New Jersey--indeed, Frederick Donnelly, the owner of Donnelly's, was mayor of Trenton for 20 years, from 1911 to 1931.

This jacket is a lovely example of the wares purveyed to Trenton's political elite. Dating from the 1960s this is cut as a two button jacket with subtle darts from lovely lighter-weight cloth (making it perfect for summer) with overchecking. This has two button cuffs and a single center vents; it also features lovely narrow lapels. It is half-canvassed and half-lined, and was, of course, Union Made in the USA. It is in excellent condition, and a steal at

just $25, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA.
