1) GORGEOUS Norman Hilton Classic 3/2 sack Herringbone Bespoke Tweed with working cuffs!

This is absolutely beautiful! Norman Hilton was one of the Big Five Ivy Clothiers of Princeton, and, with Langrock, the pioneer of the "Ivy League Look". Norman joined the family clothing business--which had been established in the 1880s by his grandfather, an immigrant Russian tailor--after serving in the Navy during the Second War, and by the late 1950s had established the Ivy league look. He was the first investor in Ralph Lauren's clothing line, and one of the first makers of its clothing, but stopped making clothes for Lauren when he judged them to have strayed too far from the Ivy look that he wanted. Norman Hilton continued to make clothes with the Ivy League look into the 1990s.... and beyond, for his son, Nick Hilton, has taken up the tradition and now has a store in Princeton, like his father before him.

This jacket was the property of Dr. Tim Hosea, Harvard graduate and physician to the US Rowing team. Hosea was known for his professorial Ivy elegance, having his suits and jackets tailored primarily by Hilton, and Winston of New York. This jacket is a true beauty, being a classic grey and cream herringbone mid-weight tweed cut as a 3/2 sack with a lovely lapel roll. It was bespoke, and so has lots of handwork throughout; it is also fully canvassed and fully lined. It has four cuff buttons, all of which are fully functional as surgeon's cuffs--appropriately enough given the original owner's profession! The buttonholes, by the way, were hand-stitched in Linden, NJ, which is where Hilton made his Ivy clothing. This jacket has has a single hook vent. It was, of course, made in the USA--just down the road from Princeton, in Linden. It is in absolutely excellent condition.

Asking just $95, or offer.

5) BEAUTIFUL Vintage 3/2 sack in a Classic 1950s/1960s Bold Shepherd's Check


SOLD

This is an absolutely beautiful jacket! This was made for Lord & Taylor's Man's Shop (with the punning name "Taylord") sometime between 1962 and 1968, judging by the Union tag on the inside pocket. It is cut as a classic 3/2 sack from a BEAUTIFUL and BOLD shepherd's check in reds, blacks, moss greens and greys--this is wonderfully evocative of 1960s style, and was loomed in Great Britain.

While the exterior is in excellent condition the lining is in poor condition throughout, as shown.

6) WONDERFUL Classic Harris Tweed with Patch Pockets from PBM, sold by DiTorio's of Pennington, NJ

PMB--Pincus Bros Maxwell--was founded in 1911, and is one of the great traditional American clothiers, making most of their items in Philadelphia, hence the Liberty Bell on their labels. This jacket was made by PBM for DiTorio's of Pennington, NJ.

Pennington found fame in Frederick Forsyth's novel, *Avenger*, where it was accurately described as a classic Revolutionary War small town, inhabited mainly by old-money families who preferred its quiet to the bustle of nearby Princeton. DiTorio's used to be THE classic old-money clothier of Pennington, specializing, like Langrock, in the Waspy Anglophile Ivy look. Like Langrock, DiTorio's is long gone, but some of its wares occasionally surface from the cedar closets that they have been carefully stored in--and this Harris Tweed jacket is a lovely case in point!

Made from a beautiful and increasingly rare basketweave in shades of grey, cream, and brown Harris Tweed cloth this lovely jacket is a contemporary two button front with darts. It is half-canvassed and half-lined. It has a single center vent and three button cuffs--all of the buttons are a lovely light chestnut leather, with meta shanks, as is proper for Harris Tweed. This jacket also features the ever-desirable patch pockets! It was, of course, Made in the USA--in Philadelphia!--and it is in excellent condition.

Asking just $39, or offer.

Measurements:

Chest: 20
Sleeve: 24 3/4 (+2)
Shoulder 17 3/4
Length: 30

This is half-canvassed and fully lined, and is cut as a contemporary two button front model with subtle darting. It has three button cuffs and a single center rear vent. It was Made in the USA. It is in excellent condition except for a small ink mark on the lining under the interior pocket, as shown. This is a bargain at just $39, or offer.

Chest: 22 1/4
Sleeve: 26 (+1 1/2)

8) RARE! Harry Ballot of Princeton 3/2 sack in Harris Tweed!

This is wonderful! Harry Ballot was one of the Big Five Ivy clothiers in Princeton during the Golden Age of Ivy Style, and this jacket shows why.

The jacket is half-canvassed and half-lined, and has a single centre vent. It has leather-covered and metal-shanked football buttons in black, a nice choice given the colorway of the tweed, and, of course, has two button cuffs. It has wonderfully natural shoulders. It was Union made in the USA and is in excellent condition.

Asking just $45, or offer.

Measurements:


Chest: 20 1/2
Sleeve: 27 (+ 1/2)

9) GORGEOUS Brooks Brothers Guncheck Jacket in SaxXon Cloth--with Ticket Pocket!


SOLD

This is absolutely gorgeous!

This jacket is cut from a cloth that has a wonderfully soft hand a a remarkable drape, and a quick glance at the interior label shows that this is not actually a cashmere jacket, but something that is arguably better--a jacket cut from SaxXon wool.

SaxXon wool is produced by a particular type of sheep, and is both extremely soft, and also extremely durable--hence its possible superiority to most grades of cashmere, which can compete on softness but not or durability. SaxXon wool is extremely desirable. Its quality and rarity were established in 1765 when Charles III of Spain presented a flock of the sheep that produce this wool to his cousin, Frederick Augustus III, the Elector of Saxony. The flock flouished and its wool became famous under the care of Frederick's shepherds and weavers, and so the wool became known as Saxxon. Between 1828 and 1830 Eliza Furlong, a Scottish sheep breeder, traveled to Germany with the aim of securing Saxxon sheep for their extra fine wool. She was succesful, and after shipping a flock to Great Britian then traveled with them to Tasmania. In the late 1830s they made a final journey, moving with their flock to Victoria. Eliza died in 1859, and a monument in the shape of a wool bale was erected in memory of her bringing the finest wool to Victoria.

Today, only around 30 families breed and shear the descendants of Furlong's Saxxon sheep, and so this is an extremely exclusive material indeed.

This jacket does full justice to its august cloth. Woven as a wonderful autumnal guncheck with a classic windowpane overchecking in bracken brown, this beautiful jacket is half-canvassed and fully lined. It is darted, and is a contemporary two button model. It has a center rear vent and a fully functional ticket pocket; it also has four button cuffs. It is lined in bemberg--one of the sure signs of a first-class jacket. It was Union Made in the USA, and is in absolutely excellent condition.

Asking just $65, or offer.

10) BEAUTIFUL Harris Tweed Jacket in dark charcoal basketweave

This is lovely! Although this jacket initially presents as a classic dark charcoal basketweave tweed jacket closer examination reveals that the dark charcoal grey is interwoven with wonderfully vibrant Royal Blue, with the occasional flecks of damson and moss green heathered in, making this a wonderfully complex tweed indeed! It is cut as a standard two button front jacket, with a single center vent. It is fully lined, and was Made in the USA. This is in excellent condition!

Asking just $39, or offer.

Measurements:

Chest: 23 5/8
Sleeve: 27 1/2
Shoulder: 20 1/2
Length: 31 3/4








11) RARE Vintage Cashmere Two Button Sack Jacket

This is absolutely lovely! This jacket was sold by Hess's Department store of Allentown, Pa.. Hess's was one of the great American stores, being founded in 1897 and having several notable firsts. It was, for example, the first Department store to sell pure gold over the counter in 1974 when the sale of bullion was legalized, and the first store to carry the controversial "monokini"--a bikini without the top. They failed to sell even one. Hess is also known for its HUGE sign--the largest store sign outside New York City at the time--which weighed 8 tons and was 45 feet tall. Hess's acquired its name in 1968--when it changed from Hess Brothers--and so given this, the Union label, and the narrow lapels, this jacket was likely made in 1968 or 1969.

Although there is no fabric content listed this is clearly cashmere, and not the thin mall stuff that's so common today, but the thick and luxurious cashmere of the 1960s that established this cloth as a true luxury item. The colourway and patterning of this jacket are beautifully late 1960s, being a mix of old gold and black with iridescent green thread woven throughout--although the effect is more conservative and classic than this description indicates!

Cut as a rare two button sack this is fully canvassed and fully lined. It features slanted hacking pockets and a twin vent, as well as two button cuffs. It features lovely late 1960s "down notch" narrow lapels! It has all of its original buttons intact, and is in Very Good/Excellent condition--only because I am conservative in rating vintage pieces. It was, of course, Union Made in the USA.

Asking just $60, or offer, for a lovely and rare cashmere two button sack!

All of the buttons are leather-covered and metal shanked, and this was Made in the USA. It is in excellent condition apart from some slight rumpling from storage, and so this is in very Good/Excellent condition. As such, it is just $32, or offer.

Sleeve: 24 1/4 (+2)

13) Vintage 1960s 3/2 sack Jacket

It is half canvassed and half-lined, and has two button cuffs and a single center vent. It has very natural shoulders. It was, of course, Union made in the USA. It could use a dry clean to freshen it up, and so it is in Very Good condition, and so is a steal at just $29, or offer.

14) GRAIL! VINTAGE Abercrombie & Fitch three button sack jacket in PURE CASHMERE


Abercrombie & Fitch is mainly known now for its teenager-oriented fashion, and its rather tacky ad. campaigns. It's also known for claiming that it's been an authentic American company since 1892. And, while the company that was the predecessor of the current A&F was founded then, for the current A&F to claim that it's just as authentically American the original is rather like Edward Hyde claiming to be just as authentically good as Dr. Henry Jeykll.

Founded in 1892, Abercrombie & Fitch started life as a sporting goods store specializing in gear that by its nature had to perform well--or else its owner could end up dead. Abercrombie & Fitch outfitted Charles Lindbergh for his solo flight across the Atlantic (and in the process produced a wonderful A1 jacket!), Teddy Roosevelt for his hunting trips, and Ernest Hemingway with fishing equipment, various items of manly outdoor clothing--and the shotgun that he used to kill himself.

By 1977, the company was in bankruptcy, and in 1978 it was purchased by a Houston-based sporting goods firm that intended to continue its august heritage. Unfortunately, there clearly was a reason for the demise of Abercrombie & Fitch in 1977, and the firm was again sold in 1988, to the The Limited. This fashion-orientated clothing firm that made the once-great clothing company a cash cow of cheap and fashionable teenage clothing.

A good indication of the difference between the current A&F and the original can be seen in the fact that in 1927 the company patented a new form of telescopic sight mounting for rifles, while in 2011 it patented a new type of flower topped perfume bottle.

THIS jacket dates from the era when it was still a leading purveyor of first-class clothing that was built to last. This is cut from extremely soft and luxurious cashmere at a time when cashmere really was a special fabric. (Old-style cashmere is very different from the cheap mall cashmere that's so prevalent today.) Both the hand and drape of this fabric are lovely!

The jacket is cut as a three button sack, with the ever-desirable three patch pockets. The lapels are beautifully narrow, as is proper for a mid-century jacket, and it has two button cuffs. It is half-canvassed and half-lined, and has a single center vent. It has lovely natural shoulders. It was, of course, Union made in the USA, and carries the classic green-on-black Abercrombie & Fitch label.

This jacket does have two minor flaws, neither of which are very noticeable. First, there is a small snag on the lapel; this can hardly be seen, and would be a very easy repair to make for a competent reweaver. Second, there is some slight mars near the right-hand hem, by the pocket, as shown--again, this can hardly be seen when the jacket is worn. Because of these, the jacket is in Very Good condition, and so is a bargain at just $55, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA.

Chest: 21 1/2
Sleeve: 25 1/4 (+1 3/4)
Shoulder: 17 3/4
Length: 30 1/2








15) Princeton University Store Silk Glen Plaid Jacket


Although there is no fabric content listed this is clearly either all silk, or a silk-wool blend. Cut as a three button jacket with subtle darting this has four button cuffs and a single centre vent. Owing to its high silk content is has a lovely slubby texture which is well suited to the classic bold glen plaid patterning in black, slate grey, and cream, with forest green and golden sunset overchecking. This jacket was Made in the USA, and was originally sold at the Princeton University Store. This is in excellent condition (the interior label will be resewn before shipping) and is a bargain at just $29, or offer.

Measurements:


Chest: 21
Sleeve: 26 (+1 3/4)

16) GRAIL! 1954 Southwick Tweed, made for The Andover Shop, Mass.!


This is a wonderful jacket, with a wonderful provenance!

The Andover Shop was founded in 1948 in Andover, Mass., with an eye to selling traditional American clothing to the clientele of nearby Philips Academy. (A second shop was opened in 1953, by Harvard--for obvious reasons.) They also make bespoke and offer MTM clothing--like this wonderful jacket, which was made by Southwick and completed on 21st October, 1954.

Despite being over 60 years old this jacket could easily pass as being one made in the 1990s, and carefully looked after. (Note that from my perspective a jacket made in the 1990s is something that's fairly recent!) It's in absolutely excellent condition--as you'd expect, since someone who buys bespoke at The Andover Shop is likely to be someone who cares about clothes, and looks after them; and well-made tweeds repay care with considerable longevity!

And this jacket is wonderful. The tweed is absolutely beautiful. At first sight, it appears to be a dark brown herringbone with vertical striping in rich dark chestnut. However, closer examination reveals that the tweed consists of herringbone striping with the differing diagonals both different lengths and separated by the vertical striping--a lovely, classic, yet rare tweed.

Cut as a sack--undarted--as you'd expect from The Andover Shop, this is not a 3/2 jacket. Instead, it has a three button front with just the HINT of a lapel roll at the top button. It has two button cuffs, period-correct narrow lapels, a lapped central seam down the back and a single hook vent. It has very natural shoulders. It is half-canvassed and fully lined in a beautiful yellow lining with red and Royal blue neats. It was, of course, Made in the USA.

Asking just $59, or offer--a steal for a jacket of this beauty, quality, and with this provenance!

18) VINTAGE Autumnal Jacket by Fred. Donnelly, of Trenton--when Trenton was good!

This jacket was originally sold by Fred. Donnelly, of Trenton--back when Trenton was FAR wealthier and WASP than its neighbour, Princeton. F.W. Donnelly was THE exclusive men's haberdashers, and considered itself to cater to a far more sophisticated and worldly clientele that their Princeton rivals, such as Langrock or The English Shop, with their reliance on undergraduates and academics. Donnelly's catered to the political elite of New Jersey--indeed, Frederick Donnelly, the owner of Donnelly's, was mayor of Trenton for 20 years, from 1911 to 1931.

This jacket is a lovely example of the wares purveyed to Trenton's political elite. Dating from the 1960s this is cut as a two button jacket with subtle darts from lovely autumnal cloth with overchecking. This has two button cuffs and a single center vents; it also features lovely narrow lapels. It is half-canvassed and half-lined, and was, of course, Union Made in the USA. It is in excellent condition, and a steal at just $27, or offer.

This is a current two button front model with subtle darting; it features three button cuffs and a single center vent. All of the buttons are the classic leather covered metal shanked football buttons that pair perfectly with Harris Tweed.

This jacket was Union Made in the USA. It has some minor rubbing by the edge of the interior pocket, as shown, and so is in Very Good/Excellent condition.

Asking just $32, or offer.

20) GORGEOUS Turnbull & Asser Hacking Jacket in CASHMERE and wool.

This is absolutely wonderful! Made by Turnbull & Asser, one of the premier Jermyn Street clothiers in London, the cloth of this beautiful jacket is 95% wool and 5% cashmere, giving it a lovely soft hand and a wonderful drape. The colourway does full justice to the cloth, being a wonderful puppytooth in a medley of autumnal browns. The jacket is cut as a traditional English sporting jacket, with a fully functional ticket pocket, twin vents, and working surgeons' cuffs. It is fully canvassed, and fully lined.

This beautiful jacket is in absolutely excellent condition; the top breast pocket is still uncut, as it the lower buttonhole on each cuff. The quality of jacket is absolutely superb, as befits its Turnbull and Asser origins, and so this is an absolutely steal at just $49, or offer.

21) BEAUTIFUL VINTAGE Lighter-weight Shepherd's Check Jacket--Two Button Sack!

This is absolutely lovely--a wonderful vintage 1960s jacket in lighter-weight wool, originally sold by "Cruise Casuals" of Miami, FL (founded in 1962). The cut of this jacket is beautifully 1960s, being a rare two-button sack with a lovely roll to its elegantly narrow lapels. It is half-canvassed and half-lined, and has the shallow twin vent that was becoming popular in the 1960s with the British Invasion of Beatles-inspired style. The colourway and patterning are also wonderful--a classic black and white shepherd's check with a bold berry red overcheck.

This jacket is cut from a lighter-weight wool--it was, after all, designed to be worn casually (when that word meant something different than it does today!) in Florida, or on cruises when the breeze became brick at night. It was Union made in the USA, and is in excellent condition.

Asking just $32, or offer--which really is a bargain for this vintage beauty!

24) STUNNING Black Stewart Tartan Jacket from Dunn & Co. MADE IN BRITAIN

It really doesn't get much nicer than this! Cut from beautiful woolen cloth in the authentic Scottish tartan of Black Stewart, this jacket is absolutely perfect for holiday events, not the least because Black Stewart is traditionally a more formal tartan, and one that is becoming increasingly hard to find.

This could be worn casually or formally, with tuxedo trousers, formal dress, shirt, and a bow.

This jacket was made in Great Britain by Dunn & Co., the highly respected tailoring firm that are best known or their extremely well cut, extremely sturdy, and extremely traditional Harris Tweeds. (Indeed, in the 1950s and 1960s part of the rite of passage of becoming a successful American academic was to secure a visiting position at Oxford, Cambridge, Edinburgh, or St Andrews, and while there acquire a Dunn & Co. tweed!) The tailoring of this jacket is impeccable, living up to their excellent reputation. It is a traditional two button closure with subtle darts; fully canvassed, and fully lined. It has twin vents, as befits its British heritage. All of the buttons are brass, featuring a thistle motif--appropriately enough given the tartan from which this is cut!

25) VINTAGE Haggar Tweed with PATCH POCKETS!

SOLD

SMALLER SIZE!

Normally, I don't bother with Haggar items; frankly, they're just not worth it. But this lovely VINTAGE Haggar is a different matter entirely! Just as vintage JCPenney can give current Brooks a run for its money, and a vintage Sears Hercules leather jacket is highly desirable while their current offerings are, well, not, this lovely vintage jacket is far superior to the current Haggar line.

Cut from a lovely basketweave tweed in a medly of browns, creams, and lichen greens, that's fairly lightweight, this jacket is half-lined and features patch pockets. It has a single centre vent, a two button front, and three button cuffs. It also has a lovely vintage Haggar label! It was of course, Made in the USA.

This is in Very Good condition--there's no flaws, but I'm cautious with vintage items, and it could use a dry clean to freshen it up. As such, it's a bargain at $25, or offer.

Tagged 38--but recall that this is a VINTAGE 38!. Measurements:


Chest: 19 1/4
Sleeve: 24 1/2 (+1 3/4)
Shoulder: 17 1/8
Length: 29 1/2








26) BEAUTIFUL Barleycorn-esque tweed with vertical striping!

At first, I thought that this was clearly a Harris tweed--the colourway, patterning, heft and slight hariness as indicated Harris! But, it's not marked as such, as so it seems that it's not--although the quality of the cloth certainly rivals (and even exceeds) that of most Harris being produced today.

Despite not being Harris this tweed is wonderful! It's a lovely complex weave that's similar to barleycorn, although considerably more heathery. It features very subtle vertical striping in chestnut and sky blue, which are also heathered into the base tones of the jacket. There is also flecking of light pale lichen green.

The jacket itself is a contemporary two button model with subtle darts; it has three button cuffs. All of the buttons are leather-covered and metal shanked. The jacket appears to be half-canvassed, and is half-lined; it has a single centre vent. It's in excellent condition, except for a tiny weave fault in the crease where the sleeve joins the shoulder. This is very close to the seam, and so cannot be seen when worn; indeed,it can only really be seen when the sleeve is placed vertically above the jacket--a stance you'll never be in unless you're an acrobat and intend to wear this jacket while performing. (I found it when measuring, which is when the sleeves are moved upwards in this unnatural way.) You'll likely have never found this flaw, but it is there, and so this is in very Good/Excellent condition--and a steal at just $25, or offer.

This is a bargain for a jacket like this!

Measurements:


Chest: 20
Sleeve: 25 1/2
Shoulder: 18 1/2
Length: 30








27) PURE CASHMERE Tweed Jacket in RARE LARGER SIZE! Made in Italy.

Cut from pure cashmere in light brown broken bone herringbone--and so exceptionally soft and luxurious--this lovely jacket is a contemporary three button front model with darting. It has twin vents, is half-canvassed and fully lined, and was Made in Italy. It features kissing buttons on the sleeves. It has some loose stitching in the lining at one vent, but this will be re[paired before shipping. Otherwise, it is in excellent condition--the two front pockets are still basted shut!

Asking just $30, or offer.

Measurements:


Chest: 25 1/4
Sleeve: 24 1/4 (+1 3/4)
Shoulder: 21 1/4
Length: 32
