Summer's lease might have all too short a date, but there's still plenty of time to enjoy these lovely classic summer jackets--especially at these end-of-season prices!

As always, I offer FREE SHIPPING IN THE USA; International inquiries are welcome, with shipping at reduced cost! :)

Also as always, ALL OFFERS ARE VERY WELCOME!

Please PM with interest and offers!


1) GORGEOUS 3/2 sack jacket in Genuine Handwoven Madras!

SOLD

This is absolutely beautiful! An absolute Ivy summer classic, this is cut from genuine handwoven Madras in beautifully subdued sepia tones of slate, blues, light tans and earthtone; this is madras at its subtle best, making this a very versatile jacket indeed! This is, of course, a vintage jacket, dating from the early 1960s judging by the Union label inside; but it is in absolutely excellent condition. It is cut as a 3/2 sack with a very high lapel roll, and has classic two button cuffs. The buttons are terrific--clearly original to the jacket, they are rare two-hole buttons, and have a lovely and utterly 1960s pearly finish. The jacket has a single centre hook vent, appears to be fully canvassed, and is half-lined. It is, as I mentioned, in absolutely excellent condition. It was made by Albert Ltd for The Tweed Shop of Seattle--LONG before grunge!--and has beautifully natural shoulders.

Asking just $60 > 49 > 40, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA.

Measurements:


Chest: 22 1/2
Sleeve: 26 1/4 (+1 3/4)
Shoulder: 18 3/8
Length: 31 1/4








2) Harry Ballot 3/2 chambray sack with patch pockets

SOLD

Ballot was one of the major Ivy League clothiers of the Golden Age, located in bucolic Princeton, and this shows why. A wonderful shade of vintage sky blue, this is redolent of long hot summers of long ago, when depending on your views either Goldwater or the Kennedys were the hope for the future....

This is a lovely and rare 3/2 sack with patch pockets--a very desirable combination that's too rarely seen. Cut from what appears to be chambray cotton, this has the clasic two button cuff, is halflined, and has a centre vent. It has very natural shoulders. This is a truly lovely Ivy summer jacket! It does have a flaw--some minor puckering to the right label, as shown in the main picture. Because of this, this is in Very Good condition, and hence is just

$25, or offer.

Measurements:


Chest: 21
Sleeve: 24 3/4 (+1 3/4)
Shoulder: 17 1/2
Length: 29 3/4






3) Contemporary Haspel seersucker

This is lovely--and in absolutely excellent condition! A classic cream and blue seersucker, this lovely jacket is darted with a soft three button front--not a hard fashion three button by any means. It is quarter-lined and has a single centre vent. It's in beautiful condition!

Asking just $27 > 24, or offer.

Measurements:


Chest: 22 3/4
Sleeve: 24 3/4 (+1 3/4)
Shoulder: 19 1/2
Length: 31 1/4






4) CLASSIC Trad./Ivy Haspel Wash-and-Wear jacket

A staple in the 1960s, Wash and Wear jackets have experienced a surge of popularity among trads as perhaps the most hard-wearing and comfortable of classic American summer wear. This jacket is a lovely example! Union made in the USA by Haspel, THE company for Ivy summer clothing, this is a lovely summery glen plaid. It's a contemporary two button model with subtle darts, a single centre vent and a quater-lining. It has four button cuffs. This has a single thread pull on the lapel, as shown, which will be an easy fix; because of this and because this is an older piece, this is in Very Good condition, and hence is just

$20, or offer.

Measurements:


Chest: 21 1/2
Sleeve: 24 3/4 (+1 34)
Shoulder: 18 1/2
Length: 30






5) BESPOKE summer jacket from Philadelphia tailor!

This is wonderful! Made by the upscale Philadelphia tailor Vittorio Castagna (then located on 17th street) in April 1973, this is a classic 1960's - 1970's plaid jacket that's perfect for summer--as indeed this is the season it was built for! It features a twin vent and hacking pockets, is fully canvassed, and has three button cuffs. It is darted, and has a two button closure. It is fully lined, and is in absolutely excellent condition. Castagna's relocated to Walnut Street in 1988, near Gucci, Burberry, Jaeger, and Duchamps. This is a lovely jacket, in absolutely excellent condition!

Asking just $25, or offer.

Measurements:

Chest: 20 3/4
Sleeve: 25 (+2)
SHoulder: 18 3/8
Length: 31








6) NWOT Flusser Summer Jacket in Pure Silk, with STRIKING lining!

SOLD

This is lovely! Cut from a wonderfully heavy silk, this jacket features a beautiful vintage tea rose pink lining, and pick stitching throughout the lining seams, also. It appears half-canvassed, and is NWOT--all of the pockets are still basted shut, and it still has its original lapel buttonhole hangtag. As such, it is in excellent condition--although please do note that the sleeves appear to have been professionally altered, and it has a single tiny pinhole in the lapel, as shown. It is fully lined, and features a single centre vent. This is a beautiful jacket, and is a steal at

just $20, or offer.

It is likely UNWORN, and all of the front pockets are still basted shut. As such, it is in excellent condition.

This is WONDERFUL! Dating from the heyday of the Golden Era of Ivy Style, this wonderful 3/2 sack jacket has a beautifully liquid lapel that's cut high--almost 3/2.5 roll. The colourway is a wonderful light summer green, and it has the always-desirable patch pockets, with flaps. It has two button cuffs, and all of the (original) buttons are present and intact; brass toned and crested. It has a single centre hook vent, and was Union made in the USA for the long, long gone tradly store The Country Squire.

11) BEAUTIFUL linen jacket by Adolfo Dominguez 54

Far better known in Europe and the UK than in the USA, the Spanish designer Adolfo Dominguez is best know for his elegant unstructured clothes for both men and women--his retail outlet in Covent Garden, London, is easily one of the better shops in a largely tourist-orientated location. And, naturally, given the quality and classic nature of these clothes they're rather expensive, starting at around $100 for a shirt and climbing rapidly.

Even if you're not familiar with the brand this jacket will show at a glance why it's so popular. Cut from pure linen in a beautiful and classic black, grey, and cream gingham check, this jacket has a lovely unstructured feel to it--perfect for later Spring and Summer. It is half-canvassed, fully lined, and features twin vents; it also has beautifully narrow lapels and a three button front, together with subtle darting and natural shoulders, all of which (well, maybe not the darts!) made this reminiscent of the Golden Age of TNSIL style. There is a small blue thread detail to the lapel, which either is a feature of the jacket, or else was added to indicate that its original owner earned a Sporting Blue at either Oxford or Cambridge University.

This jacket is in excellent condition.

This is a lovely jacket, perfect for Summer, and hence a steal at just $18, or offer.

Measurements:


Chest: 23 1/4
Sleeve: 24 1/4 (+1 3/4)
Shoulder: 20
Length: 30 1/2







12) BEAUTIFUL Vintage 3/2 sack in cotton (?) from Huntington.

SOLD

This is wonderful! Cut as a classic 3/2 sack with the ever desirable patch pockets with flaps, this lovely jacket has no fabric content listed, but appears to be cotton. It's a lovely shade of light chambray and the white buttons complement it perfectly. It is half-lined, half-canvassed, and has a single centre vent. It was, of course, Union made in the USA, and is in Very Good/Excellent conditio--it has a small rub on the corner of one sleeve, as shown. And it was made by Huntington, one of the great overlooked trad. clothiers!

Asking just $18, or offer.

Tagged 43R. Measurements:


Chest: 21 1/2
Sleeve: 24 5/8 (+1 3/4)
Shoulder: 19 1/2
Length: 29 3/4







13) H. Freeman of Philadelphia Check Jacket

Union made in the USA by H. Freeman of Philadelphia, this lovely larger jacket appears to be cut from either lightweight wool, or a wool-silk blend. It's a lovely jacket in a smaller check. It appears to be half-canvassed, and it's fully lined. It was made from the tradly Darien Sports Shop in Connecticut. It's a contemporary two-button front model with subtle darting and a single centre vent. It's in excellent condition.

Asking just $18, or offer.

Measurements:


Chest: 24
Sleeve: 25 3/4 (+1 1/2)
Shoulder: 20 1/4
Length: 34 3/8






14) Nick Hilton Spring-Summer jacket in ivory glen plaid

Nick Hilton is the successor to Norman Hilton, one of the great Ivy League clothiers of the Golden Age of Ivy Style. This beautiful jacket is darted, with a contemporary two button front. The patterning and colourway are wonderful for Spring and Summer, being a lovely ivory and light grey glen plaid. This jacket appears to be half-canvassed; it is unvented, in Flusser-approved style. It was Union made in the USA, and the exterior is in excellent condition--the breast pocket is still basted shut! However, there is a large water stain on the lining at the bottom left, as shown; this is now hard to see, and won't, of course, be seen when the jacket is worn. However, because of this this jacket is only

$20, or offer.

Tagged 46R. Measurements:


Chest: 24 1/4
Sleeve: 23 /2 (+1 3/4)
Shoulder: 2
Length: 30 3/4
