I've moved many of my remaining jackets and suits into this single post, to make way for new arrivals. Many have undergone price drops, and many have provenance!


1) BEAUTIFUL & UNWORN Tweed with subtle overcheck; Polo University by RL. c. 39R.

Half-canvassed and fully lined, this lovely tweed is almost certainly unworn: ALL of the front pockets are still basted shut, and it's in absolutely excellent condition. Were I an eBay seller I would describe this as being "NWOT".... But since I'm not, I'll use the far more honest description of "almost certainly unworn, and in excellent condition"! :)

Now, normally, I tend to avoid RL products, unless they're RLPL or especially beautiful--and this certainly fits the latter category! Made in Canada, this is cut from a beautiful tweed that simply defies description and photography; it's a very, very dark, rich brown with a subtle hint of very dark forest green in the colourway, with a very, very subtle overcheck in single threads of russet and cream. Lovely! My pictures do NOT do this justice at all.... This jacket has a standard contemporary two button front, is subtly darted, and has a single vent. It also has four button cuffs. The tweed is mid-weight, and given the colourway would be great for the cooler Spring evenings in New England, and absolutely perfect for the Fall!

Asking just $25, boxed and shipped in CONUS, OR LOWER OFFER! International inquiries welcome, with shipping at cost.

2) PERFECT SPRING TWEED! Classic light grey and cream herringbone by Corbin


Founded in 1947 and originally manufacturers of trousers only, Corbin is one of the undersung Great Purveyors of Trad / Ivy Clothing.... what other company would have a line of trousers called "Natural Shoulder"? All of the Corbin jackets I've seen have been wonderful--and this is no exception. Cut from a lovely softer tweed in classic light grey and cream herringbone, this has a lovely hand and drape... and given both its weight and colourway this is the perfect classic, versatile, tweed for Spring!

It's half-canvassed and fully lined, and features a center vent. It was, of course, Made in the USA--as far as I know Corbin make nowhere else--and is in excellent condition: the front left pocket is still basted shut, and the right and chest pockets still have remnants of their original basting thread, too. This does have one small mar: There seems to be a fault in the tweed on the right arm, as shown, where the warp threads didn't catch the cream colour, leaving black only. But this only adds to the artisanal character of this tweed! Because of this, though, I'm

3) NWT Land's End red-and-white pincord. UNWORN.

Purchased new, the original owner never even removed the tags from this jacket--so this is genuinely New With Tags. 100% cotton, this lovely jacket is in pincord striping of red and white, which presents as a lovely salmon pink from a distance. It is half-lined in a complementary cream, and is very unstructured, as you'd want from a summer jacket in this weight. The jacket is, of course, in excellent condition, is 100% cotton, and is subtly darted with a three-button front--while not cut as a 3/2 jacket, the top button does have the start of a subtle roll which makes this look like a 1960s high-roll 3/2.5. This has a centre vent.

Asking just $50 > 45, or offer, boxed and shipped in CONUS.

4) J. Press "Pressidential" 3/2 sack--SUPERB condition.


This is simply stunning!

Half-canvassed and fully lined, this jacket is from J. Press' "Pressidential" line, and as such it cost betweeen $795 and $950 when new... which was not very long ago at all. It absolutely superb condition, this is a classic 3/2 sack with a lovely lapel roll. It also features four button cuffs, and a single center hook vent. The colourway of this jacket is simply wonderful, as it is patterning--a lovely and versatile smaller glen plaid check. My pictures really don't do this gorgeous jacket justice! (Please do see the close-ups, though, to get some idea of its beauty.) This is in superb condition.

Asking $95, or offer, boxed and shipped in CONUS.

5) NWT Patchwork Madras jacket by Jos. A. Bank

This is a beautiful jacket! Ignore the fact that this is from JAB--it is, after all, from their Signature Collection and so is decently made, being half-canvassed and fully lined. It also has a single centre vent. This was made in India--as you'd want for a Madras jacket--and is absolutely lovely! It is also New With ALL Tags attached, and so is in pristine condition.

It originally cost $250, so how about $75 > 65, or offer, boxed and shipped in CONUS?

6) WORN JUST ONCE! BEAUTIFUL Brooks Bros. 3/2 sack in Loro Piana Camelhair.


This is absolutely beautiful, was purchased at full price last year by its original owner, and worn just ONCE, very carefully--and so it is in pristine condition. (It comes complete with its original spare buttons, in their original package.)

Cut from wonderfully luxurious Loro Piana camelhair, this beautiful jacket is a classic 3/2 sack with PATCH POCKETS, three button cuffs (featuring football buttons), and a single centre vent that culminates a lovely lapped centre seam. It's Brooks "Madison" model. This jacket is also fully lined, and appears to be fully canvassed. It is, of course, in absolutely superb condition, being basically new and unworn.

It's gorgeous, and an absolute steal at just $135, boxed and shipped in CONUS.

7) BEAUTIFUL Brooks Brothers 3/2 sack in miniature herringbone


This is absolutely wonderful! Cut form a terrific miniature herringbone in classic grey, this lovely 3/2 sack is a beautiful example of a trad. classic! It is half-lined and half-canvassed, and features two button cuffs, a single center vent, and was, of course, Made in the USA. The trousers are flat-front and cuffed. This suit is in absolutely excellent condition!

Asking just $95, boxed and shipped in CONUS.

8) BEAUTIFUL J. Press 3/2 summer sack suit


This is wonderful! Cut from a lovely dark cream poplin blend (55/45 cotton/poly) that feels almost like a cotton/gabardine blend, this suit is a 3/2 sack with a lovely lapel roll. It has a hook vent, a change pocket on the waist seam, and the trousers are flat front and cuffed. This was Made in Canada.

This suit is in excellent condition, except that it has one tiny dark spot at the end of one cuff, and two fainter similar spots on the other sleeve, near the cuff. Because of these mars, this is only in Very Good condition, and hence I'm

9) TERRIFIC J. Press 3/2 sack pinstripe suit--just $20


This is great--a classic 3/2 sack suit in grey, with a lovely pinstripe in alternating white and lilac. This suit has a lovely lapel roll, a single center hook vent, and three button cuffs. It is half-canvassed and fully lined. The trousers are flat front and cuffed. It was Made in the USA.

The jacket is in wonderful condition, but the trousers have been repaired on one side, as shown. This is still a very serviceable suit, and would be great as a starter suit, or a beater suit--perfect for an internship, or for going out in! As such, this is priced at

10) VERY SOFT canvassed jacket in MUTED HONEY HERRINGBONE--Made in the USA. c. 42, 44.


Half-canvassed and fully lined, this lovely jacket is exceptionally soft--it might well be cashmere, but I suspect from the hand of the cloth that it's lambswool. The colourway is lovely--a very muted herringbone (i.e., a herringbone cloth where the boning is very subtle, owing to little dissimilarity in colour between the different herringbone stripes) in wonderful soft honey tones. This would be a lovely jacket for a less-warm but still sunny Spring day! This is a contemporary cut, with a two-button front, subtle darts, and a single rear vent. There's no maker's name, or other identifying information, but it was Union Made in the USA. It's in excellent condition.

Chest: 22 1/2
Sleeve: 26 1/2 (+2)
Shoulder: 20 1/8
Length: 31 1/2




Half-canvassed and quarter-lined, this lovely lighter-weight jacket is perfect for Spring. It features the ever-desirable (and increasingly rare) three patch pockets, is very, very subtly darted, and is unvented, in Flusser-approved style. The cloth is light, and classic black and cream herringbone, with a very, very subtle overcheck in green and red--this is so subtle it's hard to see even if you know it's there, since each colour is just a single thread wide! (My pictures really don't do this justice.) This jacket was Made in the USA for Alexander Julian, and is in excellent condition.

Asking just $28, or offer, boxed and shipped in CONUS.

Sleeve: 24 7/8 (+1 1/2)
