    5) Harris Tweed 3/2 sack.

    A trad. classic! This is a brown herringbone Harris Tweed, cut as a 3/2 sack. It's by JAB--but Old School JAB,when it rivaled Brooks' better offerings. It's half-lined, and features a single center vent, letaher-covered, metal-shanked buttons, and a lovely lapel roll. HOWEVER, it does has a flaw--a small but distinct hole on the left hand shoulder at the back, which, to be honest, is too large to go unnoticed and would cost a decent amount to reweave, owing to its size. But this would still be a terrific knock-around jacket for the weekend! As such, it's in wearable condition, and so

    just $18, or offer,s hipped in CONUS.

    Measurements:

    Chest: 21 1/2
    Sleeve: 25 1/4 (+2)
    Shoulder: 18 1/2
    Length: 32

    6) BEAUTIFUL Majer Moss Green herringbone

    This is absolutely lovely! The colourway of this jacket is wonderful--a rich, jewel-like dark moss-green, heathered through with shades of forest and lichen... My pictures come nowhere near doing this justice! It is half-canvassed, fully lined, and a standard two-button model jacket with a center vent. It was Made in the USA, and is in absolutely excellent condition.

    Asking just $45, or offer.

    Measurements:


    Chest: 22 3/4
    Sleeve: 23 1/2 (+2 1/4)
    Shoulder: 20

    7) GRAIL! CASHMERE herringbone 3/2 sack.

    This is the first cashmere 3/2 sack I've seen--and it's lovely! Cut from luxurious two-ply cashmere, rather than the thin stuff that's so common today, this is a lovely rich dark honey brown herringbone. It features a centre vent, a lovely lapel roll, and half-canvassing. It has single button cuffs. It does have some minor flaws: There is a fray at the hem of the lining on the left hand side, and some loose stitching in the lining at the vent. There is also a small fault in the weave--not a snag--on the left-hand sleeve. As such, this is in overall Very Good condition.

    This was Made in the USA.

    Asking just $50, or offer.


    Measurements:
    Chest: 21 3/4
    Sleeve: 23 1/2 (+2)
    Shoulder: 18
    Length: 30

    SOLD

    This is a lovely, classic Harris in brown and charcoal herringbone. Made in the USA, this is fully lined and half-canvassed. It has a single centre vent, and is in absolutely excellent condition--it even has its original spare buttons in a small bag in the interior pocket!

    9) HEAVY HARRIS TWEED JACKET by Hardy Amies for Hepworth's.

    This is a FANTASTIC jacket--seriously thick and heavy, this is Harris as it should be! A classic and standard brown and cream herringbone, this is a jacket you could easily use in place of an overcoat. Designed by Hardy Amies for Hepworth's, this isn't tagged as such, but was clearly made in England. It has a single centre vent and single button cuffs. It does have a single missed stitch on one sleeve, and the full lining shows signs of wear and rumpling, so this is in Very Good condition only. As such, it's a steal

    at just $35, or offer.

    Measurements:


    Chest: 21
    Sleeve: 24 1/2 (+2)
    Shoulder: 18
    Length: 29 1/2

    10) GORGEOUS, GORGEOUS BOLD PLAID 3/2 Sack by Southwick!

    THIS IS GORGEOUS! I'll let the pictures describe the beauty of the patterning and colurway of this wonderful jacket, and just mention a few of its other features. First, it's a 3/2 sack. It has a fully functional throat latch, using a throat latch tab on the collar. The colar is lined in leather, and it features leather elbow patches. It also has leather-covered football buttons. It was made by Southwick, and is fully canvassed. It was, of course, made in the USA. It is unvented, in Flusser approved style.

    It does have a flaw: there is significant water staining to the inside of the lining on the right-hand side, as shown. Otherwise, this is in excellent condition. However, because of this damage I'm asking

    just $75 for this beauty, boxed and shipped in CONUS.

    Measurements:


    Chest: 23 1/2
    Sleeve: 24 3/4 (+2 1/2)
    Shoulder: 20
    Length: 32 1/2

    11) Pendleon Basketweave Tweed--with patch pockets and elbow patches!

    This is a lovely jacket! A lovely basketweave in shades of grey and cream, this features patch pockets, suede elbow patches, a single centre vent, and football buttons. It is fully lined, and was made in the USA. It is in excellent condition, except for one flaw--the former owner decided to write his initial in marker pen in the interior, under one pocket! Because of this, I'm asking

    just $30 or offer.

    Tagged a 44, this measures:


    Chest: 23 1/2
    Sleeev: 24 (+1 1/2)
    Shoulder: 20 1/4
    Length: 30 1/2

    12) BEAUTIFUL BOLD Burberry Plaid Jacket, cut from Scottish cloth!

    SOLD

    This is wonderful! A gorgeous, bold plaid in black and cream with a wonderful scarlet overcheck, this lovely jacket is cut from cloth loomed in Scotland, which is wonderfully soft. (I suspect that this is alambswool/ wool blend, although it is not labeled as such.) This jacket was made in the USA, and features a full lining, half-canvassing, and a single centre vent. It also has leather-covered, metal shanked buttons, each of which is beautifully embossed with Burberry's Charging Knight logo.

    This is in excellent condition, and is a steal at just $50, or offer, boxed and shipped in CONUS.

    Measurements:

    Chest: 22 1/2
    Sleeev: 24 1/2 (+1 3/4)
    Shoulder: 19 1/4
    Length: 30 1/4
