5) The Trad Trifecta!

A) J. Press. Check.
B) Harris Tweed. Check.
C) A 3/2 sack jacket. Check.


Given that Harris tweed is a staple of the Trad wardrobe it's surprising how infrequently J. Press has offered 3/2 sack jackets made from it. Given their comparative rarity I'm delighted to offer one today! Cut from a lovely basket-weave Harris Tweed in pewter, black, chestnut and taupe, this is a lovely classic 3/2 sack jacket. Fully canvassed and fully lined this has three button cuffs, with all of the buttons being lovely rich chestnut leather "football" buttons with metal shanks. It has a single center vent.

This jacket also features suede leather elbow patches in burnished chestnut brown, giving it a wonderfully professorial look. It was, of course, made in the USA.

This jacket was clearly someone's favourite jacket for a long time! As well as the elbow patches this has undergone professional repair to the liner; there are two interior patches near the hem on each side. It also has some wear to the leading edge of the placket. This is a much-loved jacket, and one that would now be perfect for weekend wear of casual evenings out--it has the perfect insouciance of a WASP tweed! It a phrase, it's ready to become your much-loved jacket, too, and will give you years of service in that capacity.

It is in Very Good condition.

Asking just $35, or offer.
