1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    This has some minor rubs to the lining at the top of the interior pockets, as shown, one of which had a small fray which has been repaired. The rest of the lining and the exterior is excellent, but this is in overall Very Good condition. It was Made in the USA. As such, it's a steal at

    3) BEAUTIFUL PURE CASHMERE ITALIAN BLAZER--HANDWORK GALORE!

    SOLD

    This is absolutely lovely! Cut from a wonderfully luxurious and soft pure cashmere twill cloth, this beautiful jacket was Made in Italy, and exemplified insouciant Italian style. Cut as a Continental three button front jacket with just the hint of a roll at the top, this is subtly darted and features a twin vent. It is fully canvassed, and fully lined, and features an abundance of handwork throughout, with pick stitching in the lining, on the lapels, on the placket, and on the flapped pockets.

    4) VINTAGE. RARE Southwick 3/2 sack blazer in "Cableknit" cloth!

    SOLD

    The wonderfully textured "Cableknit" cloth from which this blazer is cut is almost never seen now; which is a pity, as it's lovely, reminiscent of classic Aran sweaters and adding a lot of interest to otherwise standard blazers. As well as being made from cableknit cloth this lovely jacket is classic 3/2 sack by Southwick, made for Bunce Brothers--THE Trad. store of Cleveland, located in the expensive Shaker Square. (And now long gone, victim of a more casual workplace.) This jacket is half-canvassed and half-lined, and has a single centre vent. The buttons are brass, and show just the right amount of patina for their age. This was, of course, Made in the USA, and is in Very Good/Excellent condition--a dry clean and a press and it'll be in Excellent condition!

    You're highly unlikely to see another cableknit cloth blazer soon, and almost certainly not one that's a 3/2 sack, so if this is your size, grab it!

    Asking just $35, or offer.

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

    5) LOVELY Canali in Alpaca & SIlk!

    This is a beautiful jacket! Cut from a lovely blend of 85% Alpaca, 10% SIlk, and 5% nylon (for strength), the cloth of this jacket has a wonderful hand and drape. The colourway, patterning, and texture of this jacket are all wonderful; a heathery mixture of pepper and salt, close inspection reveals threads of petrol blue throughout; the silk and alpaca base make this a wonderful and subtly slubby.

    Made in Italy, this has a Continental cut with a three button front and subtle darts; it has twin vents, and unflapped patch pockets. It is half-canvassed and fully lined, and has three button cuffs. It is in absolutely excellent condition.

    Asking just $50, or offer, for this beautiful jacket!

    Tagged EU56L (US46L) this measures:


    Chest: 23
    Sleeve: 26 1/2 (+1 1/2)
    Shoulder: 19 3/4
    Length: 33
