    Cloth by Reid and Taylor, founded in 1839!

    This is absolutely gorgeous! The cloth was woven in Scotland by Reid and Taylor, a firm that was founded in 1839. And it's absolutely gorgeous, and utterly British in both patterning and colourway. The base in a classic lichen green herringbone--although so narrow are the stripes that you can only tell its herringbone on close inspection. This is overlaid with classic windowpane checking; the principal check is autumnal bracken with horizontal lines in moss green and vertical lines in slate grey. Beautiful!

    The construction and cut of the jacket do full justice to the cloth that it's woven from. This is a classic British country tweed jacket; it features slightly roped military shoulders, a double vent, a fully functional ticket pocket, and a two button front, with almost unnoticeable darting. It is fully canvassed, and fully lined in striking dark crimson. This jacket features pick stitching throughout the lining.

    It features two deep hacking pockets on the front, and a fully functional hacking ticket pocket on the right, where it should be. The pocket flaps are lined with the same crimson as the jacket; they all have sturdy cotton lining to ensure years of wear. The collar is similarly lined, although this time in crimson felting that matches the lining.

    This jacket is in absolute superb condition; it is quite possibly unworn.

    Asking just $85, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA; International inquiries welcome, with shipping at cost.
