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.

    I've consolidated my remaining jackets into this one post--and many more are on their way! All have undergone price drops, and all iwere n former posts that were due to be bumped!

    As always, FREE SHIPPING ON EVERYTING WITHIN THE CONUS; International inquiries are very welcome, with shipping at cost.

    Also as always, despite the already-low prices, ALL OFFERS ARE VERY WELCOME!


    1) Oxxford Cashmere--just $25!

    SOLD

    This is gorgeous! Cut from seriously luxurious Crown Cashmere, this beautiful Oxxford is fully canvassed, fully lined, and has a single centre vent. The cashmere it is cut from has a wonderful colourway, with a grey and white herringbone overlaid with a windowpane check in dark slate blue and light honey. The jacket has a two button front, a single center vent, and four button cuffs.

    It does, though, have some issues, and so would need repair prior to wearing. There is a small snag hole on the front that needs to be rewoven, and one of the cuffs is fraying. There is also a flaw near the hem at the front which might be a very small stain (possibly removeable) , and the hem needs to be resewn at the back (an easy fix). I suspect that these repairs could run about $100, so this jacket is very well priced at

    just $25, or offer--so you'll have a splendid Oxxford in cashmere for about $130!

    Measurements:


    Chest: 24 1/4
    Sleeve: 24 1/2 (+2)
    Shoulder: 20 1/4
    Length: 31 1/4

    2) RARE Cashmere blend (?) Welsh Tapestry Tweed

    I very, very rarely see Welsh tapestry tweed, and it's even less common to see one that's readily wearable, as they tend to be an acquired taste. And it's even less common to see one that appears to be woven from cashmere... But this tweed meets all of these criteria!

    Cut from tapestry tweed in a wonderfuly complex yet utterly wearable pattern (please see my close-ups for details!) this beautiful jacket has no fabric content, but the tweed appears to be either pure cashmere or a cashmere-heavy blend, judging by its extremely soft and yet hardy hand. The jacket was a bespoke model made in Hong Kong at the legendary Mandarin Hotel, and features a wonderful paisley lining that goes beautifully with the complex yet understated pattern of the tweed. It is a standard two button front jacket with a single centre vent. and two button cuffs.

    If this is your size, grab it--you're not likely to see another like this again, and most definitely NOT at this price!

    Asking just $45 > 40 > 35, or offer.

    Measurements:


    Chest: 21 1/2
    Sleeve: 24 (+2 1/2)
    Shoulder: 18 1/2
    Length: 28 1/2

    3) CLASSIC Ivy Fall 3/2 sack jacket!

    SOLD

    Absolutely perfect for strolling on the campus of your Ivy league school in the Fall, or donning after work on Friday to head out for a good steak and bourbon with your wife in her RHT stockings, elegant dress, and your newly-purchased sleek baby-blue Chevrolet sedan, this lovely jacket is cut from dark tobacco brown wool with a sporting yet elegant slate-grey overcheck. It's a 3/2 sack, with a single vent, two button cuffs, and a great lapel roll. Made in the USA when clothes still were, this lovely Fall jacket is half-canvassed and half-lined. It does have one flaw--a small ink blotch on the inside lining, as shown, and so because of this this is just in Very Good condition. As such, I'm

    asking only $35, or offer, boxed and shipped in CONUS.

    Tagged a 48L, this measures:


    Chest: 24
    Sleeve: 26 3/8 (+1)

    4) BEAUTIFUL Canali sports jacket--fully canvassed, fully lined, twin vents!

    SOLD

    This is beautiful--and I say this as someone who doesn't usually appreciate Italian tailoring as much as it deserves! This lovely Canali is fully canvassed and fully lined. It is cut from a cloth that's 51/49 silk and wool, making it wonderfully light with a lovely hand and drape. The lining is bemberg--another large plus! Made in Italy, the jacket is darted, and has a lovely lapel roll on its standard two-button front. It features a twin vent, and pick stitching on the lapels and down the front closure, as well as elsewhere. This is a truly beautiful jacket that only has one very minor flaw--two small puled threads on the left lapel, which blend in to the fabric. Otherwise, this is in excellent, possibly unworn condition, with the two lower front pockets still basted shut.

    Asking just $65 > 60 > 49, or offer.

    6) BEAUTIFUL and RARE Italian Windowpane jacket in lighter weight tweed

    SOLD

    This is wonderful--and very, very rare! First, it has an utterly italian cut; slightly curving arms contoured to the body, very shallow twin vents, and a beautifully Italian colourway--pearlgrey with cream windowpaning. This is wonderful! Moreover, it also has a very rare approach to securing the "perfect simple silhouette" for your evening promenade... It lacks a right-hand side external breast pocket, so that the jacket is as symmetrical as it can get. It is fully lined and half-canvassed, Made in Italy, and in absolutely excellent condition! A beautiful, unusual jacket that is packed with detail, this is a steal at just

    $40 > 35 , or offer.

    SOLD

    This is lovely! Cut from 100% cashmere cloth this beautiful jacket is fully canvassed and fully lined. It features flapped pockets, subtle darting, a three-button front, and four button cuffs.

    9) Unusual vintage 1950s/1960s two button sack

    Rarer than its 3/2 brother the two button sack i sa trad staple--and this is a lovely example! Cut from rougher, slubbier tweed this little gem is utterly 1950s/1960s collegiate, with a dark petrol blue base with bold old-gold and light blue striping running vertically through it. This sort of cloth really isn't seen any more--and nor is this sort of cut, with a lovely lapel curve into the front and a sack cut. It's half-canvassed and half-lined, and has a single center vent. It also has the classic two-button cuffs, and was Made in the USA. It is clearly an older piece, and could use a dry clean to freshen it up, so it's in Very Good condition only.

    So, how about just $25 > 23 > 22, or offer?

    Measurements:


    Chest: 21 1/4
    Sleeve: 23 1/4 (+2)

    11) Lovely Orvis Glen Plaid slubby tweed

    There's no fabric content listed, but this might well be a wool-silk blend, as it has that lovely slubby texture of such.
