I have several trad/Ivy summer jackets to pass on today--all at very good prices!

NB: 5 and 7 are still available, with price drops!


International inquiries are welcome, with shipping at cost.


Please PM with interest and offers.​

1) BEAUTIFUL Madras 3/2 sack by Huntington.


This is terrific! Cut from a lovely lightweight madras (as opposed to the heavyweight madras! ;) ) which showcases beautifully the sepia coloring that Madras is known for, this is a wonderful 3/2 sack. It's fully lined and half-canvassed, has the classic two-button cuffs, and was made in the USA. It also has a single vent. This does, however, have a couple of minor issues; a small stain by the cuff, as shown, and a small darkish scuff near the right hem, which will certainly come out with dry cleaning. Because of these blemishes this lovely summer classic is just

$35, or offer.

Tagged a 42R, but measurements are:

Chest: 22 3/4
Sleeve: 25 1/2 (+1 1/2)
Shoulder: 18 3/4
Length: 30 1/2


2) Brooks Brothers 1818 Regent Blazer in wool and mohair


This is absolutely terrific, and is being sold on behalf of the original owner who wore it very sparingly indeed. Cut from a lovely lightweight cloth in wool and mohair from Vitale Barberis Canonico, this is unlined, and features scarlet piping on the interior seams. It has twin vents, four button cuffs, and is in absolutely excellent condition. The shoulders are completely unpadded!

Asking just $65, or offer.

Tagged a 45R, this measures:

Chest: 22 1/2
Sleeve: 24 7/8 (+1 1/2)
Shoulder: 19 1/4
Length: 31 1/2

3) Bullock & Jones seersucker jacket--PATCH POCKETS!


This is wonderful--a classic Trad staple from the quintessential store of the West Coast WASP! Cut in traditional blue and white striping this jacket is fully lined in complementary double-cream lining, this jacket has the ever-desirable patch pockets, a single lining, complementary buttons, and a single vent. It was made in the USA. It is also in excellent condition--it still has the original inspection ticket in the pocket. However, it does have one tiny blemish, as shown, which I found just now. This might well come out with dry-cleaning. Otherwise, this is in absolutely excellent condition!

Asking just $50, or offer.

Tagged (on hangtag) 46R, and measures:

Chest: 23
Sleeve: 23 7/8 (+1 3/8)
Shoulder: 20
Length: 31 3/4

4) LOVELY H. Freeman "Waylite" Naturalaire 1960s 3/2 sack in Shadwplaid--Utterly "Mad Men"!


This is absolutely terrific--and I'm tempted to keep it! Made by H. Freeman in Philadelphia, this is a "Waylite" "Naturalaire" jacket--very, very lightweight and perfect for summer. Cut as a 3/2 sack this is quarter-lined as befits its intended hot-day use, and has a lovely lapel roll. It also has the classic two button cuffs and a single vent. It has very, very natural shoulders--as you'd expect from a Naturalaire! The cloth is wonderful--a dark, deep shadowplaid which is utterly conservative East Coast c. 1962. They really don't make these any more, and while this needs a dry clean to freshen it up it's in Very Good/Excellent condition. This is a steal, since I'm

asking just $45, or offer.

Tagged a 40L, and measures

Chest: 20 1/2
Sleeve: 26 1/4 (+2 1/2)
Shoulder: 17 3/4
Length: 32 1/4


5) Made in USA Sans-A-Belt Summer jacket

This is a very nice little oddity--a Sans-A-Belt jacket, rather than the more usual trousers! (Think of this as the equivalent of Corbin's Natural Shoulder line of trousers.... although perhaps less odd, since jackets can have belts!) This is half-lined, half-canvassed, has lovely pewter-ish buttons, and a single vent. It also features flapped and patch pockets! A lovely workhorse summer blazer, this is just

$25 > 22 > 20, or offer.


Chest: 20 3/4
Sleeve: 25 1/2 (+2 3/4)
Shoulder: 18
Length: 30 1/2


6) Lovely "Resortweave" 1960's 3/2 summer sack in dark check. Utterly "Mad Men"!


This is another lovely vintage 3/2 sack jacket! Cut from "Resortweave" fabric--extremely lightweight and designed to be worn at a resort, because of course you'd still be wearing your jacket at the beach, wouldn't you?--this jacket is perfect for summer. It was originally sold by Jack Donnelly in Trenton--when Trenton was the place you moved to from the lower-class Princeton (yes, that was rather a while ago...) and Donnelly's rivaled Langrock. The cloth is lovely--a dark, conservative check, perfect for casual business events, such as cocktail parties or social dinners when off-duty. This jacket features lovely pewter-esque buttons, classic two-button cuffs, a single vent, and quarter-lining. It is half-canvassed and Made in the USA, as it dates from when things were. It does need a dry-clean just to freshen it up--it's been in storage for about twenty years--and so is in Very Good/Excellent condition.

Asking just $35, or offer.

Tagged a 41R; Measurements:

Chest: 21 5/8
Sleeve: 24 1/2 (+1 3/4)
Shoulder: 18 1/4
Length: 30 1/2



7) Pure Woven Silk Jacket for Woolf Brothers

Made for Woolf Brothers--the preeminent luxury goods retailer of the Midwest, based in Kansas City--near the end of its life (the stores closed in 1992), this wonderful jacket is cut from a beautifully textured woven silk with strands of black, dark tab, moss green, and bark brown. This is half-canvassed and fully lined, and has a single vent. It was Made in the USA. It's in excellent condition, with the sole exception that one of the cuff buttons has a small shear--although this is so clear and flush and smooth that it might well simply be a manufacturing flaw and always been like that. Beautiful!

Asking just $45 > 40 > 35, or offer.


Chest: 22 1/4
Sleeve: 25 (+ 2 1/4)
Shoulder: 19
Length: 30 1/4
