Bunch of vintage stuff I have had for a while. Sorry the pictures suck, took them with flash so the items are darker than pictured. I can take better pictures of items upon request.

Item: Dark green tweed herringbone sportcoat (Desmond's)
Design details: 3 button, patch flap pockets, 2 button sleeves, half lined single, center vent, undarted/ sack jacket
Dated: Sept. 21 1966
Flaws: None that I have found

Item: Navy double breasted blazer (S. Herman)

Item: light green tweed sportcoat (John David)

Item: Charcoal flannel suit (Boyd's)
Design details: 3 button, quarter lined, 2 button sleeve, undarted / sack jacket, very heavy soft flannel, single center vent

Let me know if you think my prices are crazy, this is just cool stuff I've picked up because I liked the design / felt it was well made. All of it is fully canvassed, some of the sizes are weird but hopefully some of this stuff will work for somebody.
