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,

    Fok.

    WONDERFUL Bottle Green Flannel 3/2 Sack Blazer from The English Shop of Princeton... for a smaller chap!

    This is beautiful! Made by Southwick, one of the great AMerican clothiers, this is cut from lovely thick wool flannel with a terrific hand and drape. It's cut as a traditional American 3/2 sack jacket. This is as you'd expect, since this lovely jacket was made for The English Shop of Princeton--one of the great bastions of Ivy Style from the 1950s until the 1990s. (More information about The English Shop can be found on my Facebook page, WaterhollowTweed)

    The jacket is fully canvassed, and half-lined. It features the ever-desirable patch pockets--and here they are set off with lapped edging. It has lovely natural shoulders. The jacket has a single hook vent, and the traditional two button cuffs. All of the buttons are intact and original, and are a lovely shade of vintage pewter, the perfect complement to the jacket's colouring.

    The colouring of the cloth does the jacket full justice, being a lovely muted bottle green, the standard Ivy alternate to the usual conformist navy.

    This jacket was, of course, Union Made in the USA. It's in absolutely excellent condition.

    Jackets this nice, from The English Shop, in this size and condition, crop up only rarely, so if it's your size don't hesitate to garb it! Especially since I'm asking

    only $45, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA. International inquiries welcome!

    Measurements:


    Chest: 19 1/4
    Sleeve: 22 (+2)
    Shoulder: 17
    Length: 28 3/4
