    I have some more lovely Spring/Summer tradly jackets to pass on today, ranging from c. 38 to c.50!


    And also as always, OFFERS ARE VERY WELCOME!

    Please PM with interest and offers!

    1) Hickey-Freeman Customized Clothing Blazer--with "George and Dragon" brass buttons!


    This is absolutely terrific! A wonderful blazer that's on the cusp of charcoal and lighter navy blue in colour--NOT an orphan, as shown by the buttons and cut--this was made in the USA by Hickey Freeman, for their customized clothes line. It appears to be fully canvassed, and is fully lined in a wonderful scarlet lining with subtle paisley patterning. It's a standard two-button model, with darts, and is single vented. The buttons are terrific--they feature George killing the dragon, and have a great heft to them! This does have a small repair in the interior lining by the vent--a few stitches have been added--and hence this is in just very Good/Excellent condition. As such, it's a great bargain at

    just $40, or offer!


    Chest: 23 1/4
    Sleeve: 25 (+2)
    Shoulder: 20
    Length: 31

    2) BEAUTIFUL Mint Green Blazer for the larger trad.

    This is lovely, and perfect for Spring! Made in Canada for that bastion of Southern Trad Rubenstein's of New Orleans, this jacket is cut from subtly complex basketweave cloth--see the close up of the sleeve for details. It is unvented, in Flusser approved style, and half-canvassed. It is lined in a complementary moss green, and the buttons are green-toned also. This is in excellent condition--it still has its original inspection slips in the interior pockets.

    Asking just $40 > 36, or offer.


    Chest: 25 1/4
    Sleeev: 25 1/2 (+1 1/2)
    Shoulder: 22 1/4
    Length: 31 3/4

    3) MADE IN ITALY BEAUTIFUL Spring Olive-y camelhair

    The fabric on this jacket is wonderful--far, far softer than camelhair usually is, with a wonderful drape and hand. The cloth was woven in Italy, and is a lovely pale olive soft herringbone--perfect for sipping a Martini outside in the Spring!

    The cut is also wonderfully Continental, with a three button front, elegant darting, and twin vents--like the cloth, the jacket was also made in Italy. It is half-canvassed and fully lined. It is in excellent condition, except for a single start of a thread pull on the left-hand sleeve near the elbow--so, overall, this is in Very Good/Excellent condition. However, it was clearly rarely worn--all of the front pockets are still sewn shut.

    This is thus a steal at just $38 > 34, or offer!

    Tagged a 42R, this measures:

    Chest: 22
    Sleeve: 26 (+2 1/4)
    Shoulder: 19 1/2
    Length: 31

    4) Brooks Brothers Miniature Houndstooth Jacket


    This is lovely! Made in the USA by Brooks Brothers from a classic black and white miniature houndstooth cloth, this jacket has a standard two-button front and subtle darting. It is half-canvassed and fully lined. It is in absolutely excellent condition; the two lower pockets are both still sewn shut, and it comes complete with its original spare buttons in their original packet.

    Asking just $38, or offer.

    Tagged a 44L, this measures:

    Chest: 22 3/4
    Sleeve: 27 (1 1/4)
    Shoulder: 20
    Length: 33

    5) Princeton Clothing Co. vintage 3/2 sack

    Made for Princeton Clothing Co. back when this was a minor competitor to Langrock, Hilton, Landau, and The English Shop, this lovely jacket is a classic 3/2 sack with a lovely high lapel roll. The cloth is a lovely Spring medley of lichen green, chestnut brow, and peat black, with an aquamarine overcheck. This is a perfect Spring jacket--all the more so as it appears to be cut from heavy cotton, or possibly lightweight gabardine. It is half-canvassed, half-lined, and has a center vent. It was, of course, Made in the USA, and features the classic two button cuff. Although there are no obvious flaws, this is an older piece, and hence is in Very Good condition.

    As such, I'm asking just $35 > 32, or offer.


    Chest: 20 7/8
    Sleeve: 25 1/4 (+1 1/2)
    Shoulder: 17 3/4
    Length: 31

    6) Lovely Basketweave with Overcheck Jacket by RL Chaps, with a 3/2 lapel!

    This is a very nice jacket! Cut from a complex basketweave cloth with a subtle russet overcheck, this is that oddity--a darted jacket with a 3/2 lapel roll! Made in Canada, this appears to be half-canvassed, and is fully lined. It has a single centre vent, four button cuffs, and is in absolutely excellent condition.

    Asking just $30 > 28, or offer.

    Tagged a 40R, this measures:

    Chest: 21 1/4
    Sleeve: 24 3/4 (+1 1/2)
    Shoulder: 19
    Length: 31
