1) MADE IN ENGLAND Classic Herringbone Harris Tweed

A grey herringbone Harris tweed jacket should be the backbone of every classic wardrobe, and this is a beautiful example, with Royal Blue flecks heathered into the herringbone --so if this is your size, grab it! A contemporary two button front jacket with very subtle darts, this lovely jacket was clearly Made in England, the telltale signs being the single button cuffs (which only appear on very traditional British tweeds) and the placement of the interior content label in the left-hand interior seam. This lovely jacket has a single center vent; it appears to be half-canvassed, and is fully lined. This jacket is in absolutely excellent condition; it is quite possibly unworn.

Asking just $39, or offer.

It has three front buttons on the right, and two on the left; close inspection reveals that there was never a third on the left, but if this bothers youy, don't despair--the original spare button is included on the interior of the jacket.

5) BEAUTIFUL English Cashmere Twill Blazer!

Baron of Piccadilly used to be well-known for being the only store in Britain that routinely offered discounts of Barbour clothing. Not surprisingly, as well as being a Barbour stockist Baron also stocked many other wonderful items of clothing. This beautiful cashmere blazer is a good example. Likely dating from the early 1980s the cashmere of this jacket is seriously thick and soft, not the mall cashmere that's so widespread now. The cloth was loomed in Huddersfield, England, and is a wonderful twill weave.

The jacket does full justice to the cloth. Cut as a contemporary two button model with subtle darting and beautifully narrow lapels this has a single center vent and three button cuffs. It is fully canvassed, and fully lined, and was Made in England. It carries the classic Baron label. It is in excellent condition, and a bargain at just

8) BEAUTIFUL Harris Tweed from H.A. & E. Smith of Bermuda!

H.A. & E. Smith was established on Bermuda in 1889. Together with Trimingham's and The English Sports Shop it was the third main upscale clothing store on Bermuda, boasting at one time that it had the widest selection of cashmere sweaters anywhere in the Western hemisphere.

Smith's closed in 2001, but you can still find examples of its wares that show clearly why it so famous for the quality of its clothing--and this Harris Tweed jacket is one example.

Made in England for Smith's, this jacket is cut from an absolutely beautiful and extremely rare bold plaid Harris Tweed in a wonderful medly of autumnal brackens, russets, chestnut browns and dark moss green. Cut as a contemporary two button front jacket it has subtle darts and the utterly correct and traditional British single button cuff.

9) CLASSIC Harris Tweed Jacket from DiTorio's of Pennington, NJ

This was originally sold by DiTorio's of Pennington, NJ--an extremely trad. clothier, now long gone, that catered to the more rurally inclined trads of neighbouring Princeton. Pennington itself is a beautiful pre-Revolutionary War small town; the cemetery on Main Street is bounded by a wall that British troops exercised their horses over in 1775, and Frederick Forsyth set the start of his novel Avenger in Pennington, as embodying classic small town America.

This jacket embodies the wares that were offered by DiTorio's. Cut from a very sturdy, heavier-weight Harris Tweed of a heft that gave Harris its worldwide reputation and is now increasingly rare, this is a lovely classic grey herringbone that is accented with classic Harris tweed vertical stripes in chestnut brown and sky blue.

11) WONDERFUL Solid Mustard Harris Tweed Jacket, Made in England for Archie Brown, Bermuda

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.

28) GRAIL!! Brooks Brothers Vintage 3/2 Navy Flannel Blazer.


This is absolutely gorgeous! Cut from wonderfully luxurious heavier medium-weight flannel cloth in classic dark navy blue, this blazer is a true GRAIL item--a Brooks Brothers flannel navy blazer with a 3/2 lapel roll! Although this has the traditional 3/2 lapel roll note that this is not a sack jacket, for it features subtle darts. The reason for this Brooks anomaly simple--this blazer was made for Brooks Brothers' "Brooksgate" line, which was aimed at younger men just starting their relationship with Brooks Brothers (hence, "Brooksgate" being the gateway to Brooks Brothers). Since younger men (at least when this jacket was made..) have not yet acquired the girth that might be needed to make a sack fit well without needing side seam alterations to taper it this jacket is darted for a sleeker fit.... although the 3/2 lapel is still present to introduce the Brooksgate customers to its elegance.

In addition to have a 3/2 lapel--with, here, a beautiful roll--this blazer also has the classic two button cuffs, and the highly desirable flapped patch pockets. All of the buttons are Brooks Brothers' "Brooksgate" buttons (no longer produced) and so are original to this jacket. This jacket is half-canvassed and half-lined, and has a single center vent. It was, of course, Union made in the USA, and is in absolutely excellent condition.

Asking just $40, or offer, for this wonderful jacket!

30) GRAIL! Pure Cashmere 3/2 sack from Chipp!

Chipp needs no introduction here--they were one of the best tailors in New York (JFK was one of their clients), and THE Ivy Style tailor, being responsible for inventing the Ivy GTH staple of embroidered trousers.

Chipp's products are invariably absolutely first rate, and this beautiful cashmere 3/2 sack is no exception. Cut from pure cashmere--and not the thin mall stuff that's so common nowadays, but the wonderfully rich and soft cashmere that earned this cloth its reputation--in a lovely tan and cream bareleycorn weave, this jacket is cut as a classic 3/2 sack. It is fully canvassed and fully lined, and has lapped seams across the shoulders and down the center back. It features two button cuffs and a single center vent. It was, of course, Made in New York. It does have one small issue; the jetted pockets have started to sag slightly on the leading edge, as can be seen in the pictures. This could be rectified either by pressing, or, perhaps, by pressing and then basting shut to retain their shape. This is a common problem with jetted pockets, especially in fabrics such as cashmere, but because of this this jacket is in Very Good condition, and hence is a steal at just $35, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA.

31) MUSEUM QUALITY! Dartmouth College 3/2 sack Reunion jacket, Class of '56.

I don't use the term "museum quality" lightly, but this beautiful jacket most certainly qualifies as it is precisely the sort of jacket that was featured in the Fashion Institute of Technology's 2013 exhibition on "Ivy Style" as being quintessentially Ivy.

This is no ordinary jacket--this is a specially designed Ivy League Reunion jacket, made for a member of Dartmouth's Class of '56.

Reunion Jackets are rare, especially on the secondary market; very few are made, and these tend to be saved by the children and grandchildren of their original owners. And this is a lovely example. Judging by the interior Union label this was made for the Ten Year Reunion of Dartmouth's Class of '56, and it is a classic example of 1960s Ivy Style.

Cut as a traditional 1960s 3/2 sack, this has wonderfully narrow lapels with a lovely roll. It also features three patch pockets on the front, with the breast pocket featuring the "1956" embroidery that identifies this as a Reunion Jacket. It is, of course, cut from lovely wool flannel is classic "Dartmouth Green". This jacket is fully canvassed and half lined, and has a single center vent. It features three button cuffs, and was originally sold by James Campion, the traditional Ivy outfitters for Dartmouth's Ivy Set. It features three button cuffs and a single center vent, and has very natural shoulders. It was, of course, Union made in the USA, and apart from some minor dusting on the collar crease--which will come out with dry-cleaning and, in any case, cannot be seen when worn--this is in absolutely excellent condition, despite being over 50 years old. But then, that's only to be expected--Reunion Jackets were worn very, very rarely, and cherished between outings.
