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.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    I have full provenance on this coat, which were formerly the property of a former owner on the Philadelphia Phillies--Alexander Buck, a man known in the profession and around Princeton for being exceptionally well-dressed! So, if you're a Phillies fan, this represents a rare opportunity to acquire a piece of Philly memorabilia.... and if you're a trad. or Ivy fan, this represents a rare opportunity to acquire a clothing grail!

    Langrock was THE Ivy clothiers of Princeton, overshadowing even Hilton and The English Shop. It's now gone, and its suits, jackets, ties, and coats are becoming scarcer each year.

    This coat is a classic single-breasted raincoat. There's no fabric content listed, but it appears to be gabardine. It has lapped seams throughout, and a singe hook vent. All of its original buttons are intact, and it is fully lined.

    This was formerly the property of Alexander Buck, and he wore it often--so you might well see it in replays or pictures of old Phillies games! It even still has his nametag in the collar! :)

    The good news is that this is a Langrock, owned by Buck, and a trad. classic. The not so good news is taht owing to his extensive wear of it this coat is only in Acceptable condition. It has damage to the lining, as shown, although this would be an easy fix. It also have fraying at the cuffs and teh hem, which could be repaired with the addition of leather strips--again, an easy fix. And it is generally rumpled, and could use a dry clean. There are, though, no stains or odours, and with a little TLC this would be a wonderful, useable coat!

    Owing to its condition, asking just $25, or offer, to allow for restoration costs!

    Measurements:

    Chest: 23
    Sleeve: Raglan, so measured like a shirt: c. 38 (+2 1/2)
    Shoulder: NA as raglan sleeve.
    Length: 46
