WONDERFUL Vintage Solid Mustard Harris Tweed Jkt, Made in England for Archie Brown, Bermuda. c.38

WONDERFUL Vintage Solid Mustard Harris Tweed Jkt, Made in England for Archie Brown, Bermuda. c.38

Archie Brown, with Trimingham's, Smith's, and The English Sports Shop, was a Bermudian institution until its closure, being famous both for its offerings of upscale British clothing and also for the bagpiper who played in the store every day at noon.

This marvellous jacket shows just why Brown's was so famous. Likely dating from the early 1960s this beauty was Made in England. It has the traditional British three button front and the high lapels, harking back to its hacking jacket heritage. The Harris Tweed that it is cut from is the traditional heavyweight Harris with the rather rough and slightly hairy hand--just what you'd want in a tweed of this calibre! It is also an extremely rare solid colour tweed--the colour of English mustard! It is fully canvassed and fully lined. It is unvented, and has four button cuffs. All of the original buttons are intact, and all are the traditional leather-covered metal-shanked football buttons. This also carries a full set of lovely vintage labels. This does have one or two small blemishes on the tweed, as shown, and so this is in Very Good condition.

This is a rare opportunity to acquire a lovely vintage jacket from a renowned retailer at a very good price indeed! Asking just $35, or offer.
