7) Princeton University Store 3/2 Tweed Herringbone Sack.

Dated Jan. 18th, 1980.

Jimmy Carter was President, gold had just reached $1,000 an oz (on the precise day that this jacket was made!), and the Soviet Union had just sent 75,000 troops into Afghanistan. And, in Princeton, a fortunate Ivy League man took possession of this lovely jacket from the Princeton University Store.

Cut as a classic 3/2 sack this lovely jacket is cut from a classic light brown tweed herringbone. half-canvassed and half-lined this has a single center vent and very natural shoulders. It features two button cuffs, and all of the buttons are leather-clad metal-shanked football buttons. Union made in the USA, this is in Very Good condition--it has no obvious flaws, but it could do with a press.... Which is very impressive for a jacket that's almost 40 years old!

Asking just $39, or offer, boxed, shipped, and insured in the USA.


Chest: 21 1/4
Sleeve: 24 (+2 1/2)
Shoulder: 18 5/8
Length: 31 1/2
