1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    This gorgeous jacket is new, and unworn, although its tags have all been removed and the basting from the pockets and vent has been removed, also.

    This jacket is spectacular! Cut from a beautiful woolen cloth woven in England, the patterning and colourway of the shell are perfectly English, and absolutely perfect for afternoon walks on your estate, grouse shooting on the moors, or simply tramping through the woods in search of chestnuts with the Labrador. This would also be utterly acceptable for a less formal dinner party in the nicer parts of Gloustershire, or to attend the County Court in your role as the local magistrate! The base of this cloth is a classic English moss green; the windowpane overchecking is in russet red and dark blue.

    My pictures don't do this justice at all--but the cut of the jacket does full justice to the quality of the cloth that it's made from! Cut as an English hacking jacket, this has a traditional country three button front. The two primary front pockets are slightly slanted, as you'd expect on a hacking jacket, as is the fully functional ticket pocket. It has slightly military shoulders in the English tradition. This jacket is--of course!--twin vented; moreover, it includes in the interior a lining vent strip, designed to keep the vent from opening too far when the jacket is worn, a feature that very few jackets have unless they are custom made. The jacket is fully canvassed, and fully lined. The lining is Bemberg, and features pick stitching throughout. The jacket has four button cuffs.

    This jacket is in absolutely immaculate condition. Originally, this cost a small fortune; here, it is merely $65, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA.

    Tagged 42L and unaltered. This measures:

    Chest: 21 3/4
    Sleeve: 25 3/4 (+2 1/4)
    Shoulder: 19 3/8
    Length: 32 1/4
