DROPS to $35.

Bought this here but don't wear it so I'm going to pass it on. Will consider trades for ties or 15 32/33 shirts.

Here was the initial Description:

I've long considered PBM Clothes of Philadelphia to be one of the great unsung heroes of Ivy/Trad style, and this jacket confirms my view. Of course, I might be biased here, as I've been hunting for a Brownwatch jacket since I reluctantly had to let my J. Press Brownwatch go as a result of significant weight loss... and if this were just a tad longer it wouldn't be here. (Brownwatch is, of course, the brown-based version of the famous Blackwatch tartan--and in my view is easily the nicer-looking and more versatile of the two. And you don' thave to be a member of the 42nd Foot to wear it!)

Union-made in the USA (naturally, this is from PBM!) this is subtly darted with a standard two-button front. It's half-canvassed and half-lined, and has a center vent. It also features lovely narrow lapels and wonderfully slanted front pocket flaps! This jacket is in excellent condition, although it could do with a dry-clean to freshen it up, as it's been stored in a closet for quite some time.


Chest; 21.5
Sleeve: 25 (+1 3/4)
Shoulder: 18 1/2
Length: 31 1/4
