9) UTTERLY IVY! A wonderful jacket (likely silk and linen) in pale pink herringbone, by Oakloom Clothes of Baltimore, MD!


Oakloom Clothes had an unusual business model--they declined to advertise, considering this to be "vulgar", and relied on the quality of their clothing to speak for itself. No doubt this reticence kept Oakloom from the success that it deserved, for the quality of their clothing was first-rate. They made clothes for Paul Stuart, Bullock & Jones of San Francisco, and Maus and Hoffman in Palm Beach, FL. They specialized in classic, Ivy Style clothing, and this was continued when they were bought out in 1995 by Hartz & Co who wanted to use them as an entry into "the better part of the upper market".

This jacket shows just why Oakloom were so beloved by the few familiar with their clothing. This jacket is cut from a wonderful pale pink and cream herringbone cloth that's likely a blend of linen and silk. The herringbone is accented with vertical stripes in pale green, blue, and sunset gold. The jacket is cut as a contemporary two button jacket with subtle darts. It is half-canvassed and fully lined in cream.

It has a single center vent. Union made in the USA, this is in excellent condition.

Asking just $35, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA.

Chest: 20 3/4
Sleeve: 22 3/4 (+2 1/4)
Shoulder: 18
Length: 30 1/2

11) NICK HILTON Linen and Silk Summer jacket.

Nick Hilton took over from his father, Norman Hilton, one of the founding fathers of Ivy Style, and now runs the last surviving classic men's clothier in Princeton.

This jacket is a worthy offering from the Hilton name! Although there is no fabric content listed it is clearly either all silk, or a blend of silk and linen. The fabric is lovely--a summery blue-green with extremely subtle overchecking in Royal blue and summer green. Cut as a contemporary two button jacket with subtle darts, this has three patch pockets. It is half-canvassed and quarter-lined, making it perfect for summer. It is unvented, in Flusser approved style and has four button cuffs. It was, of course, Union made in the USA.

Asking just $35, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA.

13) CLASSIC SEERSUCKER JACKET, from Haspel!

Joseph Haspel founded Haspel in New Orleans in 1909 with the express aim of creating clothing that could be worn comfortably in the sub-tropical humidity of the Deep South. Recognizing that the British used seersucker widely in their tropical colonies, he created seersucker suits and jackets. These were immediately successful, and were imported into the Ivy League look by way of Princeton, long the traditional Ivy for men from the South. (And long only *men* from the South... True to the conservatism of ts student population Princeton , shockingly, didn't fully admit women until 1969.)
This is a lovely example of a contemporary Haspel seersucker jacket! Pure cotton, this is cut as a contemporary two-button jacket with subtle darts. It is quarter-lined, has a single center vent, and three button cuffs. It's in absolutely excellent condition, and is a steal at

just $35, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA.

Tagged 48R. Measurements:

Chest: 25
Sleeve: 26 (+1 1/2)
Shoulder:21
Length: 30 5/8













14) BEAUTIFUL 3/2 Linen Jacket in earth-toned gingham check!

This is absolutely lovely! Cut from wonderfully lightweight linen in a summery earth-toned gingham check this jacket has a 3/2 lapel roll and subtle darts. It is quarter-lined, and features a single center vent. It has three button cuffs, and was Made in the USA. It's in absolutely excellent condition.

Although a fairly contemporary offering from Banana Republic this harkens back to their products of their early years, when their products were excellent and they were an outfitter in the tradition of the then -defunct old-school Abercrombie & Fitch!

Asking just $35, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA.

15) Saint Laurie Light Weight Jacket--tailored in New York City!

Saint Laurie tailors were founded in Brooklyn in 1913, and still make all of their clothing in New York City--as proudly noted on the hang-tag in all of their suits and jackets!

This is a beautiful example of their work. Featuring plenty of handwork, this is cut as a standard two button jacket with subtle darting. The fabric is a wonderful dove grey lighter-weight wool with broken vertical stripes in cream and blue, and overchecking in russet. It is fully canvassed and fully lined and features a single center vent. It was, of course, made--largely by hand--in New York City. It is in excellent condition.

Saint Laurie's sports jackets start at around $1500, so this is an absolute bargain at just $35, ,or offer!

Chest: 20 1/2
Sleeve: 23 1/2 (+2)
