NB: All of these jackets were due to be bumped in other threads, and appear here with price drops!

1) 40L Brooks Brothers Glen Plaid Three Season jacket


This is beautiful! Cut from a wonderful glen plaid in various shades of versatile brown, this lovely recent jacket is a more unusual three button front with subtle darting. Fully lined, half-canvassed, and with a single centre vent, this is in excellent condition. Imported, as Brooks would say! :)

Asking just $40 > 35, or offer.


Chest: 20 5/8
Sleeve: 26 1/2

2) Italian miniature houndstooth 3/2 sack jacket from Brooks Brothers

This is lovely! Made in Italy, this lovely Spring-Summer weight jacket is all wool, and is cut from a lovely miniature houdstooth. Half-canvassed and fully lined, this has a single centre vent, and is cut as a classic 3/2 sack. The breast pocket is still basted shut, and it's in excellent condition apart from a very, very small blemish on the lapel that I have only just noticed, and had to squint at to make sure that it wasn't just part of the pattern. This is hardly noticeable at all, and might well come out with a dry clean, but it is there, and so this jacket is

Tagged 43L, this measures:

Chest: 21 3/4
Sleeev: 26 1/4 (+1 3/4)
Shoulder: 19 1/4

3) BEAUTIFUL Vintage Anderson-Little Windowpane Jacket

This is absolutely GORGEOUS!!!!! Cut from lightweight wool, this beautiful jacket is a very high 3/2.5 roll sack. It's half-lined, fully canvassed, and features a single vent. The colouring and patterning are beautiful, and it was made by the old-school Anderson and Little when it was a trad/Ivy staple! It was, of course, made in the USA.

This is WONDERFUL, in excellent condition, and a steal at just $50 > 45, or offer!


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

4) Made in the USA of Scottish lambswool Boss Barleycorn jacket with overcheck.

Admittedly, this isn't as Trad as most of my offerings, and also admittedly Boss gets little love here (as it shouldn't, at full retail), but this is a wonderful jacket, and so worthy of offering! First, this is cut from wonderfuly soft Scottish lambswool, woven in Scotland by ALexander's, so this has a wonderful hand and drape. The colourway and patterning of the cloth is also terrific--a lovely classic grey and cream barleycorn, with a very subtle overcheck of lilac and burnt orange. The jacket is fully lined, and half-canvassed, has a three button front, jetted pockets, and is unvented, as Flusser would approve. It was also Made in the USA.

This lovely jacket is a steal at just $28 > 25, or offer, boxed and shipped in CONUS.


Sleeve: 24 1/2 (+1 1/2)
Shoulder: 19 1/2
Length: 31 1/8


This is lovely! Cut from lambswool, this has a wonderful hand and drape, and the colourway is simply fantastic--a really bold British guncheck in tones on bracket, peat black, turquoise blue, and burnt orange--a truly lovely bold guncheck! This is half-canvassed, and fully lined, and was Made in the UK. It is unvented, in Flusser approved style, and subtly darted. It's in excellent condition, and a steal at just

$25 > 23, or offer.


Tagged 46.

Chest: 23 1/2
Sleeve: 22 1/4 (+2)
Shoulder: 201/2
Length: 31 1/2

6) Italian Spring jacket in silk, linen, and wool!


Like the Boss, above, this jacket isn't quite my usual style... But also like the Boss, it's a wonderful jacket that deserves a good home here! Cut from an E. Thomas superfine cloth that's a blend of silk (40), linen (35), and wool (25), this has a wonderful hand and drape, and its weight makes it perfect for the upcoming warmer weather. Beautifully styled, this has a three button front, a lovely lapel roll, and features dual vents. It is half canvassed and fully lined. Please note that my pictures don't come near to doing this justice--it's a lovely light tobacco color! I's in excellent condition. It was Made in Italy.

Asking just $30, or offer.

This is tagged a 40R, and measures:

Chest: 21 5/8
Sleeve: 24 (+2 1/4)
Shoulder: 19 1/2
Length: 30 1/4

7) BEAUTIFUL Hand-Tailored Spring jacket from Tom James! Working cuffs, fully canvassed!


This was formerly the property of Michael Sapnar, currently CEO of Transatlantic Holdings, Inc., who earns roughly 60 times what I do each year--lucky man!

This jacket is a beauty, and he must have spent a lot on it. Cut from beautifully soft cloth in perfect Spring tones of blue, peat and slate, this is fully canvassed and fully lined. It was hand-tailored, and beautifully made by Tom James. It features a twin vent, which carries with it an interior retainer to prevent flare. It also has working surgeon's cuffs. WIth the exception of two or three loose stitches in the lining one one corner of the vent this jacket is in absolutely excellent condition. It was hand-tailored in the USA.

Asking just $45, or offer.


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