SOLD! WONDERFUL Classic 3/2 Seersucker Jacket by Polo Ralph Lauren, in tan and cream.

SOLD! WONDERFUL Classic 3/2 Seersucker Jacket by Polo Ralph Lauren, in tan and cream.

Nothing says summer as much as a seersucker jacket, and this one is a beauty! Introduced from the Middle East--"seersucker" derives from a combination of the Urdu words for "milk" (sheer) and "sugar" (shakar)--the fabric quickly took hold in the C19th in the hotter corners of the British Empire, and then in the American South, where it quickly established itself as the perfect fabric for the humid summer season.

The fabric quickly became established as a preppy essential helped by the fact that Princeton was both the epicenter of Ivy Style and also the "Southern Ivy"--which meant seersucker clothing abounded in the late Spring and early summer.

Offering a wonderful twist on the classic colouring of light blue and cream, this lovely light tan and cream jacket from Polo by Ralph Lauren is cut as a 3/2 jacket with subtle darting. It features the rare and desirable configuration of three patch pockets, four button cuffs, and a single center vent. It is quarter lined and has wonderfully natural shoulders.

It is also unworn, being NWOT; the centre vent is still basted shut! It does have a very small surface mark on one pocket, but this will come out with its first cleaning, and resulted from shop storage. This beautiful jacket is a steal at just $45, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA!

International inquiries are welcome!

Please PM with interest and offers!
