    These jackets are both NEW, UNWORN, and have a SUPERB provenance--they are from the stock of the recently-close Princeton tailor Josef Borg, by way of Landau's of Princeton, which received Borg's remaining stock.

    These jackets are thus completely new; it is possible that they have not even been tried on. Both have all of their original basting on all pockets, as well as on the rear vents. They both have their original sets of spare buttons; one chest button and one cuff button. This is thus a rare chance to acquire a new Harris Tweed at a substantial savings!

    In addition to being new, these tweeds are simply gorgeous; my pictures come nowhere close to doing them justice.They are both cut from an absolutely stunning midweight Harris tweed in classic herringbone, here, the herringbone is a beautiful and complex weave of lichens and moss greens--easily my favourite herringbone colourway! In addition to this the jackets both have windownpane checks in subtle mustard, russet, and sky blue. This tweed is splendid, and even if these weren't completely new they'd fetch around $95 to $115 used.... and my used prices tend to be on the very low side!

    As well as being cut from a gorgeous Harris Tweed the jackets are beautifully tailored. They are both half-canvassed, have twin rear vents, and feature the classic chestnut coloured football style buttons that go so perfectly with Harris. They are both subtly darted, and feature flapped pockets and two button fronts. They are both fully lined.

    These are, again, NEW, and so are in mint condition.

    Please note--one of the jackets has had its interior labels removed, but the other has not.

    Asking: These are, again, new jackets, cut from beautiful tweed, with full provenance. As such, they're an absolue steal at just $145 > 125, or offer, boxed, shipped, and insured in CONUS each. Offers are welcome--but you won'tbe finding nicer tweeds at this pricce anywhere!
