1) H. Freeman for The English Shop of Princeton. Beautiful 3/2 sack in houndstooth!

SOLD

A trad/Ivy icon, this 3/2 sack has a glowing Ivy provenance--made by H. Freeman of Philadelphia, one of the premier traditional American clothiers, for The English Shop of Princeton, one of the Big Four Ivy clothing stores of the Golden Age!

And this jacket lives up to its august heritage. It's cut as a classic 3/2 sack from a wonderful classic houndstooth tweed that's a wonderful heathered medley of autumnal browns--brackens, chestnuts, bark, and just a hint of forest green. It is fully canvassed and fully lined, and has a single centre vent. The lapel roll is utterly elegant, as you'd exprct from H. Freeman, and it has a very natural shoulder. It has classic two button cuffs. This was, of course, made in the USA--in fact, since it's a Freeman, it was made in Philadelphia!

This jacket is in absolutely excellent condition.

Asking just $45, or offer--a steal for something of this quality!

Measurements:


Chest: 21 1/2
Sleeve: 25 3/4 (+2 1/2)

2) H. Freeman for The English Shop of Princeton. Beautiful 3/2 sack in basketweave with Royal Blue windowpane overchecking!

SOLD

Another gorgeous jacket with impeccable trad provenance of being made by H. Freeman for The English Shop of Princeton!

This beautiful jacket is cut as a high-roll 3/2 sack--more of a 3/2.5 roll. The lapel roll is beautifully fluid. The tweed of this jacket is absolutely delicious--a lovely early autumn basketweave in Fall browns, with a beautiful and subtle windowpane overcheck in Royal Blue. My pictures really don't do this justice! This is fully canvassed and half lined, and, like its brother above, was Union made in Philadelphia. It has three button cuffs, and has a single centre vent. It has a very natural shoulder. It is in absolutely excellent condition.

Asking just $45, or offer.

Measurements:


Chest: 20 3/4
Sleeve: 25 (+2 1/2)

This is a contemporary two button jacket with darting fro shape. It has a single centre vent, is half-lined, and half-canvassed. It features the classic leather-covered, metal-shanked football buttons that are perfect with Harris tweed. It was Union Made in the USA, and is in absolutely excellent condition.

It's cut from a lovely chestnut tweed, and features the ever-desirable patch pockets on the front. It is unvented, in Flusser-approved style, and is a contemporary two-button front with darting. It has three button cuffs. It was Made in France.

Asking just $35, or offer.

5) Polo by Ralph Lauren 3/2 jacket with lapped seams.

This is another very nice unstructured jacket! Made by Polo back when it was good, this is cut from almost a miniature herringbone wteed in classic Donegal-esque pepper and salt colouring. It has a lovely and casual 3/2 lapel roll, although this does have subtle darts and so is not a sack. It is half-canvassed and fully lined, and has a single centre hook vent. It also has a centre lapped seam down the back. It features four button cuffs, and flapped patch pockets. This is a very unstructured jacket, and would be perfect for a causal office, or for the weekend! It's in excellent condition.

9) BEAUTIFUL Vintage 3/2 sack in Donegal-esque tweed. FROM 1958!

SOLD

This is wonderful--a genuinely vintage 3/2 sack that's so solid and hard-wearing it could have been made just a couple of years ago! Make no mistake, this is a seriously heavy tweed--it's roughly twice the weight of a modern tweed jacket, and so could easily double as outerwear. You won't need this if you're in the South--which is why it's rather a puzzle that it was sold at Woodward & Lothrop, in DC--a very traditional department store that was the first in DC and that folded in 1995. My suspicion is that this was purchased by someone who only lived in DC part time, and the rest of the time was spent somewhere cooler--so it was likely owned by someone in the DC political system.

This was built on October 17th, 1958, but is so hard wearing there's no need at all to baby it. The tweed is wonderful--almost certainly Donegal, it's a beautiful classic black grey and cream pepper and salt patterning and colourway with fleckings of forest green and berry red. The jacket is half canvassed and half-lined (you'd die if this was fully lined), and is a 3/2 sack with a lovely lapel roll. It has a single centre vent, and three patch pockets. It was Union made in the USA. Of course.

It does need a dry clean to freshen it up, but otherwise it's in excellent condition.

This is a GORGEOUS and RARE jacket, and will last for another 56 years with ease!

Asking just $45, or offer.

Measurements:


Chest: 23
Sleeve: 25 (+2 1/4)
Shoulder: 18 3/4
Length: 31 1/4






10) CLASSIC Vintage 3/2 sack with narrow lapels!

SOLD

This is another lovely classic vintage 3/2 sack! This features very narrow 1960s lapels, two button cuffs, a lovely lapel roll, and is cut from classic slate-blue-grey herringbone tweed. It is half-lined and has a single centre vent. It does have a very small snag hole on the underside of the sleeve by the cuff, as shown--this would be an easy repair, or could just be ignored. It also need a dry clean and a press as it's rumpled from storage. It also has some wear to the middle buttonhole. Given this, it's in Good/Very Good condition, and so is

just $15.

Measurements:


Chest: 23
Sleeve: 25 1/2 (+1)
Shoulder: 18 1/2
Length: 30 1/2






11) BEAUTIFUL Guncheck from Boss. MADE IN THE USA. Possibly Unworn.

SOLD

Boss gets little love here, and nor should it at full retail. But sometimes they get something right--like this wonderful autumnal guncheck, with its beautiful guncheck patterning with a bracken and rust overcheck and colorway of bracken, forest green, peat black and chestnut--all the lovely russet tones of Fall! This jacket is a contemporary two button front model with darting and three button sleeves; it is fully lined. It is unvented, in Flusser--approved style, and was Made in the USA.

It's in absolutely excellent condition; the two front pockets are still basted shut. It is possibly unworn.

Asking just $30, or offer.

Measurements:


Chest: 22 1/2
Sleeve: 25 1/2 (+1 1/2)
Shoulder: 21
Length: 32








12) BEAUTIFUL 3/2 lapel Cashmere and Wool Italian jacket.

This is a lovely little gem! It's cut with a natural and insouciant 3/2 lapel roll, although this does have subtle shapely darts, as you'd expect from Italian tailoring. The cloth is wonderful--a cashmere rich blend of 20/80 cashmere and wool with a lovely hand and drape. The patterning and colourway are likewise lovely; a lovely autumnal glen plaid in browns and tans with a sky blue overcheck. The jacket is unvented, as Flusser would desire, and was Made in Italy. It is fully lined. It's in excellent condition, and is a bargain at just

$35 > 32, or offer.

Measurements. Tagged 40S.


Chest: 21 1/4
Sleeve: 23 1/2 (+1 1/2)
Shoulder: 19 1/4
Length: 29 3/4








13) Land's End Lightweight Guncheck.

This is a lovely lightweight all-wool guncheck that would be perfect for a chap living in a warmer climate who still wanted his jackets to reflect the fact that it's Fall. This is a contemporary two button front jacket with darting. It's fully lined and single vented, and is a lovely muted guncheck pattern in slates and browns. It was Union Made in the USA. It's slightly rumpled and so needs a press, but otherwise it's in excellent condition, and is a bargain at

just $25 > 24, or offer.

Shoulder: 21
Length: 33






14) GORGEOUS! DONEGAL MIST BY MAGEE!

This is absolutely gorgeous!! Donegal Mist is the fabric that J. Press has chosen from its flagship tweeds, and with good reason; this is a gorgeous fabric that's a blend of 5% cashmere, 35% kid mohair, and 60% Donegal wool that's woven in Ireland by a weaver who signs his work on the label--in this case, the cloth was woven by T. Ward. Press also has their jackets made by Magee, the premier Irish tweedmakers--and this jacket was made by them also.

As well as having a lovely hand and drape this tweed is a beautiful autumnal jacket, being a versatile and classic herringbone in dark forest green and dark dark brown. It is half-canvassed and fully lined, and has a two button front and subtle darting. It has twin vents, and was Made in ireland.

This jacket has two very minor flaws, both of which are inside the jacket and so will never be seen when worn; two minor weave faults in the cloth on the interior of the jacket near the shoulder, and on the inside of the vent near the hem; the former is shown. These were likely there from new, but even so this jacket is thus in very Good condition, and so is a steal at

just $39 > 35, or offer.

15) CLASSIC & BEAUTIFUL Harris Tweed with elbow patches!

This is lovely--an absolute Fall classic, the Harris Tweed in brown herringbone with elbow patches! This is a lovely jacket, in absolutely excellent condition--even the elbow patches are unmarked, which indicates that this was worn sparingly if at all. It is half-canvassed and half-lined, and features the classic leather-covered metal-shanked football buttons that go so well with Harris. It has a single centre vent, and was made in the USA. Apart from some minor spotting on the lapel INSIDE the interior pocket it's in absolutely excellent condition--this is tweed as it should be!

Asking just $45 > 40, or offer.

17) Nick Hilton of Princeton tweed jacket

Nick Hilton is the last of the great Ivy league Princeton clothiers still going having outlasted Langrock, Royce, The English Shop, and The princeton Clothing Co.

This is a lovely jacket--the tweed is beautiful and unusual and complex, and so please do check my pictures, as it's very hard to describe. The jacket is fully lined and half-canvassed, and is beautifully shaped with its subtle darts. It is unvented, and has four button cuffs. It was, of course, made in the USA. It's in absolutely excellent condition.

Asking just $40 > 35, or offer.

Measurements:

Chest:22 1/2
Sleeve: 24 3/4 (+ 1 3/4)
Shoulder: 20
Length: 30 3/4








18) GORGEOUS Corneliani blazer in Extrafine Merino!

This is absolutely stunning! Cut from beautifully light Super 120's Extrafine Merino wool this wonderful jacket has all of the details that you'd expect from Corneliani. It is fully canvassed, and fully lined. It features an abundance of hand-finished pick stitching on the pockets, the placket, the lapels, and the interior lining seams. It is a contemporary two button jacket with a lovely and elegant lapel roll, and features a twin vent. It was, of course, Made in Italy.

This is absolutely gorgeous!

It does have two minor flaws; there is a small rub mark at the hem on the front, as shown. There's also two very small smudges on the left pocket flap, which will likely come out with dry cleaning. It took me a while to find these, but they are there, and because of this this jacket is just in Very Good condition. As such, I am asking just $40 > 38, or lower offer, boxed and shipped in the USA. International inquiries are very welcome--and lower offers are very welcome, too!

Measurements:

Chest: 22 1/4
Sleeve: 25 (+ 1 1/2)
Shoulder: 19 1/2
Length: 32 1/4






19) GORGEOUS NEW WITH TAGS SOUTHWICK SILK/WOOL JACKET! 44L. $650 retail.

This is a stunning jacket that's perfect for Spring, Summer and early Fall! This is cut from a blend of 85% wool and 15% silk, which gives the cloth a wonderful hand and drape, as well as imparting to it the rough-silk texture that's so desirable. The fabric has a wonderful hand and drape, and the colourway and patterning fully live up to its quality: the base is a mixture of dark rich tan-cream and taupe, with rich golden wheat threading heathered in throughout. This is then complemented by a beautiful overcheck in quiet scarlet... My pictures just do not do this jacket justice at all!

The cut and construction of this jacket do the colourway, patterning, and cloth full justice. This is Southwick's three-button "Nicola" model, featuring a lovely lapel roll, and subtle darting, as well as a three button front and four button cuffs. The jacket is half-canvassed, and fully lined in a light brown that complements the exterior colourway. The buttons are similarly well-chosen to pick out the brown undertones of the base colourway. The jacket is single-vented, and was, of course, Made in the USA.

This jacket has had its interior Southwick tag removed, but otherwise all of its tags are intact, including its original retail tags. I have full provenance on this jacket, and can attest that it is New With Tags--as such, it is in pristine condition.

Original retail: $650
My asking price: $45, or offer, boxed, shipped, and insured in CONUS. International offers welcome, with shipping at cost.

20) Princeton Clothing Co. Classic Herringbone Tweed

SOLD

An Ivy Fall classic, this is a wonderful example of the traditional cream and grey herringbone tweed. Featuring two lower patch pockets with flaps, this lovely jacket is half-canvassed and half lined. It is a contemporary two button from model with subtle darts. It has four buttons cuffs; all of the buttons and a lovely rich burnished chestnut, and are the classic leather football buttons that are perfect with tweed. This jacket has a single centre vent, and is in excellent condition.

It was made in the USA for the Princeton Clothing Co., one of the standard purveyors of tradly clothing to the Princeton community until its closure in (I believe) the late 1980s.

This is a lovely, standard Ivy classic, and so a steal at just $35, or offer.

Measurements:


Chest: 19 3/4
Sleeve: 24 (+2)
Shoulder: 17 5/8
Length: 28 3/4






21) GORGEOUS AND RARE Harris Tweed 3/2 sack in a smaller size!

SOLD

This is absolutely beautiful, and extremely rare--both because it's not usual to find Harris tweed 3/2 sacks, and also because this is in a hard-to-find smaller size. So, if this would fit you, grab it while you have a chance!

This really is a lovely jacket. It's beautifully cut, with a lovely fluid lapel roll. The Harris tweed that it's cut from is wonderful--a classic grey herringbone with the quintessential vertical Harris striping adding colour and accent; here, the stripes are dark Scottish sky blue and deep berry red. This is a wonderful rich and complex colourway and patterning. The buttons are all leather-clad football buttons, and include the classic Ivy two button cuffs. The pockets are flapped, and the jacket has a single centre vent. It is half-canvassed--rare in Harris--and half lined. It was, of course, Union made in the USA.

That this jacket was made for the old and Long Gone Jos. A. Bank shows just how far that company has fallen; it was easily a rival to Brooks when this was made.

Asking just $40, or offer, for this little gem.

Chest: 21
Sleeve: 24 1/2 (+1 3/4)
Shoulder: 18
Length: 28 3/4








22) Autumnal Guncheck by Jos. A. Banks. LIKELY UNWORN!

SOLD

Normally, I don't offer items by the recent Banks, but occasionally I make an exception--such as for this lovely guncheck. The colouring and patterning on this are simply terrific--a wonderful medley of burnished chestnut, dark blue, and forest green. This jacket is a standard two button model with subtle darts; It is fully lined and has a single center vent. It's in excellent condition--the two front pockets are still basted shut--and I suspect it was never worn. This is a lovely jacket for slightly warmer cool Fall days!

Asking just $23, or offer.

Sleeve: 24 1/2 (+2 1/4)
Shoulder: 18 1/2

23) Princeton University Store Glen Plaid 3/2 Tweed in Wool and ALPACA!

SOLD

The selling point for this jacket is fourfold: It's colourway, its patterning, its provenance, and the cloth that its cut from, which is a wonderful and luxurious blend of wool and alpaca!

This jacket is a lovely muted autumnal Glen Plaid in shades of forest greens with a lovely rich overcheck of burnished chestnut. The cloth is wonderful, being a 70/30 blend of wool and alpaca--not a combination that's common, but one that's lovely and luxuriously soft as well as hard wearing. The jacket was made in Canada for RL Chaps, and is half-canvassed and fully lined. This has a 3/2 lapel with a lovely roll, although it's not a sack having subtle darts. It has a single centre vent. It's in absolutely excellent condition.

Asking just $35, or offer.

Measurements:


Chest: 22 1/2
Sleeve: 25 (+1 1/2)
Shoulder: 20 1/4
Length: 31 1/2








24) WONDERFUL complex jacket from The English Sports Shop of Bermuda

Long a clothier for vacationing Ivy Leaguers, the English Sports Shop of Bermuda has provided many beautiful items for many people over the years--and this is no exception. Fully lined and fully canvassed, this is clearly lighter-weight wool, although there is no fabric content listed. The colourway is wonderful; a base of Royal blue, peat black, and dark cream, with an overcheck of golden wheat and berry red--my pictures don't do this just at all!

This is a contemporary two button jacket with subtle darts. It has a single centre vent. The two front pockets are still basted shut, but it has clearly been worn; there is a small smudge on the lining above the interior pocket. There are also two broken threads on the back, as shown; these would be easy fixes, or just ignored. This is thus in Very Good condition.

Asking just $24 > 22, or offer.
