67) GORGEOUS Donegal Tweed Jacket, woven by R. Sweeney, weaver, for Magee--and sold by Standun of Coonemara!

This is absolutely gorgeous! Made by Magee of Ireland, the premier suppliers of Donegal tweed jackets, this jacket is cut from Donegal tweed that was personally handwoven by Mr. R. Sweeney of Co. Donegal using a foot-powered wooden handloom. This technique guarantees that no yard of multicolored tweed is the same as any other... and so this is the only jacket with this precise patterning anywhere!

The tweed that this is cut from is absolutely gorgeous. A wonderfully rich and deep turquoise blue herringbone base flecked through with berry red, gorse yellow, forest green, slate grey and cornflower yellow this is traditional Donegal tweed at its absolute finest. My pictures really don't do this justice at all!

The jacket is cut as a contemporary two-button jacket with subtle darting and two button cuffs. It is fully lined in Magee's signature lining, half-canvassed, and features twin vents. It was, of course, Made in ireland--made in Co. Donegal, in fact!--and was made expressly for Standun's department store.... Founded in 1946, and known as "the home of the Aran sweater", as well as all traditional Irish clothing.

This is a truly wonderful jacket with a lovely heritage in absolutely excellent condition, and so is a steal at just $60, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA.

70) Lovely Canali Guncheck!

Made it Italy--of course--this beautiful Canali is cut from Italian woolen cloth in a classic guncheck pattern; a black and tan base with overchecking in burnished chestnut and bark brown. The cloth is a lighter mid-weight cloth, which would be perfect for transitioning to the warmer days of Spring! The jacket is a standard two button model with darting; it has two button cuffs and padded British Military shoulders. It is half-canvassed, fully lined in bemberg, and (apart from a small ink stain in the lining, the result of a Mont Blanc accident) in excellent condition!

This jacket was originally sold by Garmany of New York, a very upscale and very traditional clothier--they offer not merely clothes, but etiquette advice on their 'blog, a small movie theatre for children, free shoe-shines, and, of course, on-site tailoring. This is retail the way it should be! :)

Asking just $40, or offer.

71) Hand Tailored 3/2 sack Tweed Jacket for The English Shop of Princeton.


The English Shop of Princeton was one of the Big Five Ivy clothiers located in Princeton during the Golden Age of Ivy Style--its closest competitors were Langrock and Hilton--and this lovely jacket shows why. Hand-tailored, this is a classic 3/2 sack tweed with a lovely lapel roll. The cloth is wonderful--a complex broken bone herringbone with vertical striping in chestnut brown and sky blue. It is fully canvassed and half-lined, and has two button cuffs. It has a single centre vent, and was almost certainly made in the USA.

It does have a small ink stain on the lining by the left-hand pocket; this gives it a rather professorial character, but because of this it is only in Very Good condition, and so is just $39, or offer... a bargain for a Hand Tailored 3/2 sack tweed from The English Shop!

72) Hand Tailored Double-Breasted jacket cut from Scottish wool, by Maiwo Yang & Co., Hong Kong.

Maiwo Yang & Co have been prominently featured in the memoirs and histories by the essayist Franciso A. Cruz, since they employed his father after the family's escape from Communist China. This jacket is a lovely example of the firm's work. First, it is cut from Scottish wool--this is clearly stamped on the edge of the bolt from which the back of this jacket was cut, and is visible as the lining has been left unfinished to conform this. (I can have the lining sewn shut if desired before shipping.) The patterning and colourway of the cloth are lovely; the cloth is a very dark, dark navy birdseye with lighter blue accents heathered in, with a very subtle red overcheck.

The jacket is cut as a double-breasted jacket with six brass buttons, all of which are functional; it has two button cuffs. It features two front hacking pockets, and it is fully canvassed and fully lined. It has a single centre vent. It comes complete with all of its original spare buttons attached to the interior.

This jacket is in excellent condition, and a bargain at just $45, or offer.

73) VERY SMALL Hand Tailored Tweed 3/2 sack by Shaffer's (Di Martino's) of Trenton.

Diego DiMartino opened his tailoring shop in Trenton, NJ in 1943, and quickly established himself as one of the premier tailors to New Jersey's academic and political elite. back then, Trenton--and not Princeton--was the place to have your clothes made, a situation that didn't change until the civil unrest of the late 1960s. (Indeed, until the the early 1960s people in Princeton aspired to live in Trenton--a situation that has now reversed!) Shaffer's survived the unrest, and are still going strong under the direction of Pasquale DiMartino, Diego's nephew--although they left Trenton in 2006 and now operate their tailoring firm in nearby Lawrenceville.

This lovely tweed shows just why Shaffer's has continued in business for almost 75 years, and is still going strong. Cut from a heavyweight twill tweed in dark moss green and cream this lovely jacket is a classic 3/2 sack with flapped patch pockets and a lovely lapel roll. It is fully canvassed and half-lined; the lining is a lovely green, complementary to the tweed. It has a single center vent and two button cuffs. It was, of course, Made in the USA; in fact, it was hand-tailored in Trenton! It's in absolutely excellent condition, and a wonderful bargain at just $45, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA.

Chest:19
Sleeve: 22 1/4 (+1 1/2)

74) BEAUTIFUL Shetland Wool 3/2 sack tweed jacket--with embossed leather equestrian buttons!


SOLD

This jacket is absolutely beautiful! Cut from Shetland wool that was grown and woven in the British Isles, this lovely jacket has the characteristics you'd expect from a Shetland--it has a lovely soft hand, a wonderful drape, and it is just as hard-wearing as its more common cousin, Harris tweed!

The patterning and colourway of this jacket are lovely, too; a classic herringbone, with sepia rose and sky blue vertical striping running throughout. This jacket was made by Jos A Banks back when it was a worthy rival to Brooks Bros.; the "Red Label" Banks is just as desirable as vintage Brooks "346". This jacket is a classic half-lined 3/.2 sack with a fluid lapel roll. It is half-lined, and features a single center vent. It also features absolutely BEAUTIFUL embossed leather buttons that feature a horse's head; these are original to the jacket, are all in perfect condition, and all are intact, including the two on each cuff!

This jacket was Union Made in the USA, and is in absolutely excellent condition!

Please note that the sleeves have been tailored for the original owner, and so are slightly different lengths. Since you would likely have these altered in any case this is no problem at all, especially since sleeve alterations from the cuff are the simplest and cheapest alterations that can be f\done on a jacket--even a moderately competent dry cleaner tailor could do these well!

Asking just $39, or offer, to account for the sleeves!

Chest: 23 1/2
Sleeve: 23 1/2 (+ 2 1/2)
Sleeve: 24 1/2 (+2)

76) J. Peterman Travel Blazer.

J. Peterman was started in 1987 by John Peterman, who had once played baseball for the Pittsburgh Pirates. The brand was intended to take the place of Banana Republic, which had just been purchased by The Gap and which Peterman (correctly) foresaw would soon lose its way. To this end Peterman specialized in offering well-made clothing that reproduced iconic items of clothing, items that had romantic associations, or items that had appeared in popular films, all of which were advertised with background stories and the occasional hyperbole about their likelihood to make the wearer more attractive and successful.

This marketing approach was successful, but led to the company being mocked on the TV show Seinfeld, with Elaine's boss being the "world traveler and bon vinant" J. Peterman. As a trivial aside, the actor who played J. Peterman on Seinfeld was hired by the company to play an investor in its TV commercials, and became a member of their Board of Directors.

(J. Peterman is still going strong, and the hyperbole on their website is as overblown as always.... And, please, do NOT wear a kilt as they portray kilt-wearing, which reduces the pictured garment to a skirt! Men's kilts should be at least 1" above the knee, more if hiking.)

No doubt this blazer was described in glowing terms when it was first marketed. And it's certainly a very nice garment indeed, being cut from lighter-weight wool, with flapped patch pockets, darting, and a contemporary two button front. It is also fully lined, has four button cuffs, and a single centre vent. It was Made in the USA.

It has a small smudge on one sleeve--which is very inconspicuous, and which I only just noticed after examining the jacket carefully several times--and this will come out with the first dry clean. Given this, it is in Very Good/Excellent condition, and a bargain at just $35, or offer.

Tagged 44L--which is far too large! Measurements:

Chest: 21 1/2
Sleeve: 26 1/8 (+1 3/4)
Shoulder: 19 1/2
Length: 32

This is in excellent condition, and a bargain at just $39, or offer.

All of the buttons are leather-clad, metal shanked "football" buttons that go so well with Harris tweed. This jacket was Union made in the USA.

81) Browning Fifth Avenue Black Flannel Blazer

According to an ad. placed in Time Magazine on May 21st, 1934 "To Harvard, Yale and Princeton men, Browning, King & Co. means college clothes". That proud boast continued for several decades, even as the original iteration of Browning, King & Co. changed its name in 1959 to Browning of Fifth Avenue to avoid confusion between it and other regional stores that had acquired the right to use the Browning, King name.

The items that I have seen from Browning, Kind, & Co and the more recent Browning Fifth Avenue have all lived up to that early 1930s promise--including this lovely black blazer. (Please note that while this might raise the suspicion that this is an orphan, this can be dispelled by a quick glance at the inside tag; this is intended for use as a stand alone odd jacket, as it is tagged just 39S--a suit jacket would typically have the accompanying trousers size on the label also.) Cut from lovely wool flannel with a wonderful hand and drape, this is Browning's "Londonaire" model--a British inspired three button jacket with darting and a single center vent. It has three button cuffs, is fully canvassed, and half lined. It was Union made in teh USA during the Golden Era of Ivy Style--which is why there is a hint of a roll to the lapel at the top buton--and is in excellent condition.

Asking just $29, or offer.

82) NWT Alan Flusser Silk Jacket with Lilac Lining

This is a lovely jacket, and would be wonderful for Spring and Summer! Cut from pure silk, this jacket is a contemporary two button front model with darting. It has a single center vent, and a wonderful lining in pale lilac pink; the lining features pick stitching throughout. This jacket has three button cuffs and a single center vent. This jacket was an uncollected alteration--the sleeves were taken up--and so is new and unworn; it retains its original boutonniere tag. and all of the pockets are still basted shut, as is the vent. This is thus in excellent condition. Imported--just as the catalogues would say!

Asking just $35, or offer.

83) Brooks Brothers Golden Fleece 3/2 Jacket --perfect for Spring!

Given these minor flaws this jacket is in Very Good condition, and hence is a bargain at just $35, or offer.... Frankly, given its provenance this jacket is worth this for its historical interest alone!
