2) CLASSIC Trad./Ivy Haspel Wash-and-Wear jacket

A staple in the 1960s, Wash and Wear jackets have experienced a surge of popularity among trads as perhaps the most hard-wearing and comfortable of classic American summer wear. This jacket is a lovely example! Union made in the USA by Haspel, THE company for Ivy summer clothing, this is a lovely summery glen plaid. It's a contemporary two button model with subtle darts, a single centre vent and a quater-lining. It has four button cuffs. This has a single thread pull on the lapel, as shown, which will be an easy fix; because of this and because this is an older piece, this is in Very Good condition, and hence is just

3) WONDERFUL Princeton Clothing Co. 3/2 sack!

This is beautiful! Cut as a classic 3/2 sack and dating from the Golden Age of Ivy Style, this wonderful jacket was made by The Princeton Clothing Co., one of the major Princton clothiers, along with Normal Hilton and Langrock--and, alas, one of those that is now long gone. There is no fabric content listed, but this is either summer-weight wool or else a wool-linen blend. The colouring is terrific--a rich, deep, chambray blue. It has two button cuffs, and the buttons are all metal, and decorated with a subtle basketweave on the tops. The jacket appears to be half-canvassed; it is half-lined, and has a single centre vent. It has very natural shoulders--and PATCH POCKETS! It was, of course, Union made in the USA. It's a vintage piece, and I'm very conservative with rating vintage pieces, so this is in Very Good/Excellent condition.

Asking just $40 > 35, or offer.

Measurements:


Chest: 20 1/2
Sleeve: 24 1/2 (+ 1 1/4)
Shoulder: 17 3/4
Length: 30 1/4






4) J. Press summer 3/2 sack. BEAUTIFUL!


This is lovely! Cut from a wonderfully summer weight light green-grey-blue cloth shot through with striping in cornflower, russet, and cream, this is a classic 3/2 sack from J. Press. It has, of course, two button cuffs, a single centre vent, and is fully lined. It is half-canvassed, and, of course, was made in the USA. This also features a lovely label roll! This is a truly lovely summer jacket. This is in, conservatively, Very Good condition, and is a steal at

just $45 > 39, or offer.

Measurements:


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






5) MADRAS style wash and wear jacket!

This is a wonderful rarity--a jacket with a classic Madras colourway and patterning cut from what appears to be the classic Ivy Wash and Wear fabric! The colouring of this jacket is wonderful--russet, bracken, rich cream, and other sepia tones shot through with striking peat black and mustard yellow striping! While there's no fabric content this is clearly the same type of fabric that Wash and Wear jackets use, if a trifle nicer to the touch. Cut as a contemporary two button jacket, this has two button cuffs, subtle darting, and a single centre vent. It is half-lined. It has lovely natural shoulders. Union Made in the USA this lovely vintage piece is in excellent condition.

Asking just $45 > 35, or offer.

Measurements:


Chest: 20 1/2
Sleeve: 24 3/4 (+1 1/2)
Shoulder: 17 3/4
Length: 30






6) GORGEOUS Southwick silk-wool jacket!

This is another stunning jacket that's perfect for Spring and Summer! 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. I was the original vendor of this jacket when it was NWT, and can attest to its having been worn very very sparingly--hence its being in Excellent condition, apart from some minor rumpling from storage.

Asking just $65 > 45, or offer.

7) BESPOKE summer jacket from Philadelphia tailor!

This is wonderful! Made by the upscale Philadelphia tailor Vittorio Castagna (then located on 17th street) in April 1973, this is a classic 1960's - 1970's plaid jacket that's perfect for summer--as indeed this is the season it was built for! It features a twin vent and hacking pockets, is fully canvassed, and has three button cuffs. It is darted, and has a two button closure. It is fully lined, and is in absolutely excellent condition. Castagna's relocated to Walnut Street in 1988, near Gucci, Burberry, Jaeger, and Duchamps. This is a lovely jacket, in absolutely excellent condition!

9) NWOT Flusser Summer Jacket in Pure Silk, with STRIKING lining!

This is lovely! Cut from a wonderfully heavy silk, this jacket features a beautiful vintage tea rose pink lining, and pick stitching throughout the lining seams, also. It appears half-canvassed, and is NWOT--all of the pockets are still basted shut, and it still has its original lapel buttonhole hangtag. As such, it is in excellent condition--although please do note that the sleeves appear to have been professionally altered, and it has a single tiny pinhole in the lapel, as shown. It is fully lined, and features a single centre vent. This is a beautiful jacket, and is a steal at

10) GORGEOUS Classic Seersucker suit from Corbin--sold by DiTorio's of Pennington, NJ!

It doesn't get much better than this! First, this is cut from all cotton seersucker in classic blue and white stripes. It was Made in the USA by Corbin, one of the great (and often overlooked) trad. clothiers. Cut as a contemporary two button model with subtle darting this has four button cuffs and a single centre vent. It is half-lined, and has lovely natural shoulders. The trousers are flat-front and uncuffed.

As well as being made by Corbin this was originally sold by DiTorio's of Pennington, NJ--an extremely trad. clothier, now long gone, that catered to the more rurally inclined trads of neighbouring Princeton. Pennington itself is a gorgeous pre-Revolutionary War small town; the cemetery on Main Street is bounded by a wall that British troops exercised their horses over in 1775, and Frederick Forsyth set the start of his novel Avenger in Pennington, as embodying classic small town America.

It doesn't get much more trad than this!

Chest: 21 3/4
Sleeve: 24 1/2 (2 1/4)

11) RARE Double-breasted seersucker suit from Alan Royce of Princeton!

This is wonderful, and rare! Owing to their inherent casual nature seersucker suits rarely venture beyond the classic two button closure, and 3/2 sack, but that didn't deter Alan Royce, one of the major Ivy clothiers of Princeton of the Golden Age, from producing this--a wonderful double breasted seersucker suit with peak lapels! I've never seen one of these before, and it's simply wonderful. Cut from classic cream and blue seersucker, which presents with a more subdued, sepia tone that cream and white, which might have been a bit much for a double-breasted, this has a 6 by 1 button closure, and, obviously, the appropriate peak lapels. It has a single centre vent, and is fully lined. The pants are pleated and cuffed.

This was Union Made in the USA.

The jacket has one tiny spot on the sleeve, as shown. The trousers have several similar small spots on the front, as I've attempted to capture in the pictures--since these are small and seersucker tends to have a camouflaging effects they're hard to see, but they are there. They seem to be the remnants of a long-gone garden party cocktail!

This suit is perfectly wearable as a suit, but I'm pricing it as an odd jacket, owing to the spotting on the trousers. It is in overall Very Good condition.

It's a steal at just $35 > 29, or offer.

Chest: 22
Sleeve: 24 (+2 1/2)
Shoulder: 19 1/2

12) UNWORN and MADE IN ITALY silk/linen/wool Summer Jacket

Made in Italy, it has a lovely Continental cut, perfect for the boulevards of Rome, with a three button front, darting, twin vents, and three button cuffs. It is likely UNWORN, and all of the front pockets are still basted shut. As such, it is in excellent condition.

16) ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS SPRING GREEN VINTAGE SACK JACKET!

SOLD

This is absolutely GORGEOUS! The colouring is simply perfect--a wonderful Spring green, that would be outstanding for the Spring or Summer. This is a classic and rare two-button sack jacket, built between 1968 and 1976, judging by its Union label. It was, of course, made in the USA. It features the classic and wonderful narrow lapels that you'd expect on a late-1960s jacket, but also has a nod to the British invasion of the time, with slanting hacking pockets with lapped edges on the flap seams. It also has a twin vent.

It is half lined in a wonderful 1960s patterned lining. It has two button cuffs, and beautiful ivory-colored buttons that perfectly complement the Spring green colouring.

This is a really gorgeous jacket! It's in absolutely excellent condition except for one tiny flaw--a tiny rub mark on the left shoulder. This is a really beautiful and rare jacket!

17) BEAUTIFUL linen jacket by Adolfo Dominguez 54

Far better known in Europe and the UK than in the USA, the Spanish designer Adolfo Dominguez is best know for his elegant unstructured clothes for both men and women--his retail outlet in Covent Garden, London, is easily one of the better shops in a largely tourist-orientated location. And, naturally, given the quality and classic nature of these clothes they're rather expensive, starting at around $100 for a shirt and climbing rapidly.

Even if you're not familiar with the brand this jacket will show at a glance why it's so popular. Cut from pure linen in a beautiful and classic black, grey, and cream gingham check, this jacket has a lovely unstructured feel to it--perfect for later Spring and Summer. It is half-canvassed, fully lined, and features twin vents; it also has beautifully narrow lapels and a three button front, together with subtle darting and natural shoulders, all of which (well, maybe not the darts!) made this reminiscent of the Golden Age of TNSIL style. There is a small blue thread detail to the lapel, which either is a feature of the jacket, or else was added to indicate that its original owner earned a Sporting Blue at either Oxford or Cambridge University.

This jacket is in excellent condition.

This is a lovely jacket, perfect for Summer, and hence a steal at just $22 > 20, or offer.

Measurements:


Chest: 23 1/4
Sleeve: 24 1/4 (+1 3/4)
Shoulder: 20
Length: 30 1/2

It was, of course, Union made in the USA, and is in Very Good/Excellent conditio--it has a small rub on the corner of one sleeve, as shown. And it was made by Huntington, one of the great overlooked trad. clothiers!
