    1) Princeton Clothing Company Harris Tweed

    This is a lovely, beautiful, classic Harris tweed jacket from one of the traditional clothiers operating in Princeton during the height of the Golden Era of Ivy Style. Cut from a lovely--and increasingly rare--basketweave Harris tweed in shades of brown, cream, and peat black, this is a contemporary two button jacket with subtle darts. The buttons are all metal shanked leather covered football buttons that are the perfect complement to Harris, and these are in a lvely shade of chestnut brown. The jacket has a single centre vent and is half lined. It was, of course, Made in the USA, and is in excellent condition.

    Asking just $29 > 25, or offer.

    Chest: 21 1/4
    Sleeve: 26 1/2 (+2)

    2) TRAD/IVY GRAIL! Langrock of Princeton Glen Plaid 3/2 sack jacket

    THIS IS WONDERFUL!

    Langrock was THE Ivy store in Princeton during the heyday of the Golden Era of Ivy Style; indeed, during the 1980s it ran an ad. boldly proclaiming that it was the ONLY store in America that adhered to the American Look--an utterly unveiled criticism of Press, Brooks, and its local rivals The English Shop, Hilton, and Ballot's. And Langrock meant this; everything it sold was classically Ivy; nothing darted was ever allowed to be sold... a decison that unfortunately led to Langrock's demise when fashions changed.

    This jacket shows just why Langrock was so influential. Cut from a beautifully soft woolen cloth in a classic yet bold Glen Plaid in autumnal bracken, peat, and cream, this jacket is absolutely wonderful and utterly Ivy. It is a 3/2 sack--of course!--with a lovely fluid lapel roll. It two button cuffs, is fully canvassed, and features the ever-desirable two patch and flapped front pockets. It has a single centre hook vent. Naturally, it was Made in the USA. It is half-lined.

    The exterior tweed is in excellent condition; there is, however, some staining and fraying in the lining at the armpits; the fraying could be easily patched, and not only won't be seen when worn, but can only be seen if you're checking for damage there. Because of this, however, this jacket is in Very Good condition, and hence is an absolute steal at just

    $39 > 32, or offer.

    4) CLASSIC Brown Herringbone Harris Tweed

    SOLD

    The brown herringbone, like its cousin, the grey herringbone, are the two foundational staples of every man's classic wardrobe--so if you don't have a brown herringbone, and this is your size, grab it!

    This is a lovely, heathery, mossy, brown herringbone, cut from classic Harris Tweed. This is a contemporary two button front jacket with subtle darts and three button cuffs. It is fully-lined, and features a single centre vent. It is a very recent jacket, and is virtually unworn; indeed, the basting threads are still evident in the opened front pockets, and it still retains its original spare button (included). It has one small flaw--a weaver's missed stitch on the front near the hem, which was there since the jacket was new as it is a flaw in the handwoven fabric. This jacket is in excellent condition, and is a steal at just

    $35, or offer.

    5) ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS! Nick Hilton grey herringbone by Samuelsohn, with HOLLAND & SHERRY cloth!

    This is stunning!

    It's hard to know where to start in describing this jacket, so let's start with the cloth. An absolutely beautiful classic mid-grey herringbone, the cloth is by Holland & Sherry of Savile Row, London--who justly claim to provide the best cloths in the world. And this is no exception; beautifully soft with a wonderful hand and drape, the quality of this can be seen before it is felt.

    The tailoring of the jacket fully lives up to the quality of the cloth that it is cut from. Made by Samuelsohn in Canada, this is impeccable; a three button front with darts, hinting at the English military heritage of Holland & Sherry, this is fully canvassed and fully lined. It's absolutely beautifully made, with kissing four button cuffs and a twin vent. (This jacket was a Made to measure garment.) It was retailed by nick Hilton of Princeton--the son of Norman Hilton, one of the great Ivy clothiers.

    It is in absolutely excellent condition.

    This is a truly gorgeous jacket; new, it cost a fortune, but now, it's a steal at just $50 > 39, or offer.

    6) STUNNING Black Stewart Tartan Jacket from Dunn & Co. MADE IN BRITAIN

    It really doesn't get much nicer than this! Cut from beautiful woolen cloth in the authentic Scottish tartan of Black Stewart, this jacket is absolutely perfect for holiday events, not the least because Black Stewart is traditionally a more formal tartan, and one that is becoming increasingly hard to find.

    This could be worn casually or formally, with tuxedo trousers, formal dress, shirt, and a bow.

    This jacket was made in Great Britain by Dunn & Co., the highly respected tailoring firm that are best known or their extremely well cut, extremely sturdy, and extremely traditional Harris Tweeds. (Indeed, in the 1950s and 1960s part of the rite of passage of becoming a successful American academic was to secure a visiting position at Oxford, Cambridge, Edinburgh, or St Andrews, and while there acquire a Dunn & Co. tweed!) The tailoring of this jacket is impeccable, living up to their excellent reputation. It is a traditional two button closure with subtle darts; fully canvassed, and fully lined. It has twin vents, as befits its British heritage. All of the buttons are brass, featuring a thistle motif--appropriately enough given the tartan from which this is cut! This jacket is in absolutely excellent condition--indeed, it was freshly dry cleaned and then stored in a cedar closet, so it's ready to wear.

    Asking just $35, or offer.

    7) SPECTACULAR and RARE Harris Tweed!

    This is a wonderful jacket, and if it was just a bit smaller there's no way that it would be here, as I love the more unusual yet classic Harris patterns. Cut from a lovely traditional weight Harris Tweed, the patterning and colourway of this jacket are both wonderful. The base is a traditional and classic cream, slate grey, and peat black houndstooth; this is overlaid with windowpane overchecking in russet, the colour of bracken in late autumn. This really is a beautiful jacket!

    It's a contemporary two button model, with subtle darts. It has three button cuffs. All of the buttons are traditional the traditional metal-shanked, leather-covered buttons that go so well with Harris--here, they're a lovely shade of rich chestnut that complements the overchecking perfectly. The jacket is half-canvassed and half-lined, and has a single centre vent. It was Union Made in the USA--and is in absolutely excellent condition!

    Asking just $29 > 25, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA.

    Sleeve: 26 (+1 3/4)

    8) BEAUTIFUL Contemporary 3/2 lambswool tweed sack from Brooks Brothers

    This is a beautiful jacket! Cut from pure lambswool, this has a wonderfully soft hand and drape. The patterning and subtle and complex. The base is a chevron tweed in forest green, tan, and cream, overlaid with overchecking in forest green, slate blue, and russet bracken. This is cut as a 3/2 sack with a lovely fluid lapel and the traditional two button cuff. It is half-canvassed, and fully lined; the lining is a lovely shade of sepia rose. It has a single centre vent. This is a truly beautiful and distinctive jacket. It was, of course, Made in the USA.

    This carries the old-school Brooks Brothers "block capitals on navy" label.

    It is in excellent condition except for a single thread weave flaw on the left hand chest, and a similar weave flaw on the left cuff, as shown.

    Asking just $25, or offer.

    9) Brooks Brothers Camelhair in muted earthtone glen plaid

    This is a wonderfully subdued jacket! Cut from extremely lovely camelhair, this has a wonderful hand and drape. The glen plaid patterning is a subtle medley or loden green, autumn bracken, and earth browns; this is a perfect jacket for a New England Fall just as the leaves are turning. It is subtly darted, and has a two button closure, four button cuffs, and a center vent. It is fully canvassed and fully lined. It is in absolutely excellent condition.

    10) WONDERFUL Custom Tailored Tweed 3/2 sack by Brooks Brothers!

    This is a wonderful jacket--and one attached to some political controversy!

    This jacket was made in 1989 for John R. Fiorino... who made the headlines of the Washington Post in 1988 as a contributor to the Dukakis campiagn. Dukakis was running ads against George Bush (The Other One) criticizing him for being an elitist, and presented himself a a Man of the People. In response to this The Washington Post ran an article attacking Dukakis for being an elitist, noting that at least 50 wealthy Americans had contributed over $50,00 each to his campaign--and some had contributed as much as $100k! (Remember, this was 1988... and while these figures are large now, they were astronomical then! One of the wealthy American elite was the wealthy Chairman of the Monmouth Co., NJ, Democratic Party--John Fiorino... who commissioned this jacket just over one year later. (For the record, Fiorino contributed $80,000 to the Dukakis campaign--which would have bought a LOT of nice tweeds!)

    Whatever you think of his politics, Fiorino had excellent taste in jackets! This beautiful 3/2 sack has a wonderfully liquid label roll, and is cut from a beautiful dove-grey herringbone tweed that's shot through with vertical striping of cream, baby blue, and sepia tea rose pink. It's absolutely lovely! And the tailoring on it is exquisite--it's absolutely beautifully cut, and the pattern matching on the back is beautiful. It's half-canvassed and half-lined, with a single centre vent. It has three button cuffs and faux buttonholes. It was, of course, Made in the USA. It's in excellent condition, and a steal--for either Democrats or Republicans--at

    just $25, or offer.

    Measurements:


    Chest: 21 7/8
    Sleeve: 23 1/4 (+1 1/2)

    11) Classic Tweed, cut from Dormeuil cloth!

    This is a lovely understated tweed! This is made from cloth from Dormeuil, a French clothiers that has been in business since 1842. Dormeuil cloth is easily some of the best in the world, although whether its quality justifies its exceptionally high cost (higher than other superb fabrics, such as those by Holland & Sherry) is a matter for debate. Of course, the original cost of this fabric won't concern you since this is appearing here... But it does indicate that this is an exceptionally nice jacket indeed!

    The Dormeuil cloth from which this jacket is cut is lovely; a miniature check in autumnal shades of chestnut, bracket, moss green, and tan, this is a very versatile jacket indeed. Made by Austin Reed, there's no country of manufacture listed, but judging by the twin vent it's either England, or, judging by the three button cuffs with no faux buttonholes, the USA. In either case, the quality of the tailoring is excellent; it's half-canvassed and fully lined, and has a contemporary two button front with subtle darting. It's in absolutely excellent condition, and given the quality of both the cloth and the tailoring is a steal at

    just $20, or offer.

    Measurements:


    Chest: 21 1/2
    Sleeve: 27 1/2 (+ 1 3/4)
    Shoulder: 18

    12) CLASSIC Old-School Jos. A. Banks 3/2 sack herringbone tweed

    Please don't confuse this with the current offerings from Jos. A Banks; this dates from its "Red Label" era, when it was a worthy rival to Brooks--and when Brooks was generally much better than it now is, too!

    This is a classic 3/2 sack in brown and tan herringbone--if you don't have one of these in your wardrobe, you should! This has a very high lapel roll--almost a 2.5/3--with a lovely liquid roll. This features the classic two-button cuffs and a single center vent. It is half canvassed, Made in the USA, and has its original hang-tag intact. This is in absolutely excellent condition, and is a steal at

    just $25, or offer.

    Measurements:

    Chest: 21 1/2
    Sleeve: 23 (+2)

    13) VINTAGE 3/2 sack in light loden twill

    This is a SPLENDID jacket! Cut from a lovely thick twill in a light loden green, this beauty is a true 3/2 sack with a lovely lapel roll. It dates from between 1962 and 1972, judging by the Union Label, and was sold by Roots, one of the major purveyors of tradly items in New Jersey and Eastern PA. (And this has a wonderful vintage label from there!) It has a lovely lapel roll, and the twill is wonderfully durable and attractive--almost like keeper's tweed, except all-wool and with no cotton content. It has classic two button cuffs, and is half-canvassed and half-lined. It has a single centre vent. And, of course it was Made in the USA.

    This is in excellent condition, except for one minor flaw.... Sometime around 1978 the original owner left two things in the lower left pocket: a list of instructions from one of his clients (he was a lawyer), which were typed out on a manual typewriter.... and some candy! Unfortunately, the candy "leaked" into the lining of the pocket, which is now stiff and candified. (And possibly edible.) This has no effect on the jacket, but my advice would be to have the pocket liner replaced--a simple and easy job for any competent dry-cleaner tailor.

    Given this, this jacket is in Very Good condition overall, and hence is very well priced at just

    $20 > 16, or offer.

    15) LOVELY VINTAGE American Plaid Jacket

    This is a lovely jacket! Cut from wonderfully thick and comfortable woolen cloth, the colourway and patterning of this jacket are quintessentially American--a lovely plaid with a base of very light tea rose lavendar with checking in cream, slate, and black. The jacket is half canvassed and half lined, with a twin vent. It has an ornamental ticket pocket, and the buttons are all metal shanked.

    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 quarter-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

    20) Beautiful Donegal-esque tweed by Corbin!

    21) CLASSIC VINTAGE hacking jacket by Bond Clothes

    SOLD

    The cut, colourway, and patterning of this jacket are utterly 1960s Ivy! Although this is not a 3/2 sack it does have the hint of a roll at the top button, a nod to the fact that this was Union Made in the USA, and hence an AMerican take on the classic English hacking jacket. This has a three button front and subtle darts; the pockets are slanted hacking pockets, and it has twin vents. The colouring is the lovely dark and subdued tones of the 1950s and 1960s which is almost never seen today; the patterning is a lovely 1950s-style challiswork overcheck. It is half lined, and has British military shoulders. It has lovely narrow 1960s lapels!

    This is a lovely, wearable jacket, but it does have some minor flaws. First, it needs a dry clean to freshen it up. Second, it has wear to the top and second buttonhole, although these are easy fixes even for a dry cleaner tailor--or else you could just ignore them! There are also splits in the lining in the centre, although I'll have these repaired before shipping.

    Given these issues, this jacket is in Good, wearable condition, and hence

    asking just $22, or offer.

    22) Blackwatch Jacket by Bill's of Princeton.

    This is a lovely classic Blackwatch jacket from Bill's of Princeton! Half-canvassed and half lined, this is a contemporary two button model with subtle darting. It has a single centre vent, and two button cuffs. It would make a lovely holiday jacket!

    It does have some very minor flaws: It's missing a cuff button, and the front buttons (by Waterhouse) are not the same set as the cuff buttons--although they are in the same colour tone and crested, so this isn't obvious. It also has a few patches of surface schmaltz, which will come out with a dry clean. As such, this is in Good/Very Good condition, but could easily be made Excellent with a dry clean and a replacement button, and so this is a steal at

    just $22, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA.

    23) WONDERFULLY BOLD Red Plaid Hacking Jacket

    I can't promise anything, but almost every woman who's seen this has loved it! ;)

    This is terrific! A seriously bold jacket in red, cream, and black plaid, this beauty was from the Johnny Carson line of clothing produced by Hart, Shaffner, and Marx from 1970 until its demise in 1985, when the catalog-only line was closed. Named for Johnny Carson of The Tonight Show, this clothing line was in its time as popular as Johnny was... Not the least as he often mentioned it on the show itself.

    This jacket is cut as a sack hacking jacket, with twin vents and slanted hacking pockets. It is half-canvassed, half-lined, features a two button front, and has no darting at all. It was Union made in the USA, and would be in Excellent condition if it didn't need a dry clean to freshen it up..... I have full provenance on this jacket, and so know that it's had one owner, and has been hanging in his cedar closet since 1987!

    Asking just $25, or offer.

    Measurements:


    Chest: 21 3/4

    24) WONDERFUL Hickey-Freeman Customized Plaid Jacket

    Not to be confused with the also excellent clothiers H. Freeman Hickey-Freeman is one of the staple clothiers of Ivy Style, specializes in customized clothes for their very well-heeled clientele.

    This lovely jacket is truly wonderful. Union Made in the USA, the colorway and patterning are both bold and subtle.... The patterning is a classic American Plaid, with the base being a lovely shade of autumnal bracken. The overchecking is most obviously cream and black, but looking closely you'll see that it also has checking in forest green and Royal Blue, making this a lovely subtle plaid tweed.

    This is half-canvassed and half-lined--and the lining is a wonderful shade of burnt orange. The jacket is subtly darted and has a contemporary two button front closure and twin vents. It has lovely vintage buttons. This is slightly rumpled on the bottom on one side from storage, but this will be fixed automatically with its first dry clean. As such, this is in Very Good/Excellent condition, and is a steal at

    just $24, or offer.

    Measurements:


    Chest: 22 1/4
    Sleeve: 24 1/2 (+2)
    Shoulder: 19 1/4

    25) RED VINTAGE 3/2 sack jacket from The Princeton Clothing Co. PATCH POCKETS

    SOLD

    This is a lovely jacket--and being both solid red (almost scarlet) and also a rather dense hopsack weave this is one of those unusual jackets that would be perfect for both summer and the holidays!

    Cut as a VERY high roll 3/2 sack (more of a 3/2.75 roll!) this wonderful jacket was made by The Princeton Clothing Co., one of the major players--after Langrock, Hilton, The English Shop, and Ballot's--in the Ivy Style movement of the Golden Age. It is half-canvassed and half-lined in a lovely complementary red lining. It features a lapped seam down the centre back, and a single hook vent. It has two buttons cuffs--as you'd expect--and was Union made in the USA, as you'd also expect. It has lovely vintage cross-hatch buttons, and lovely natural shoulders. It also has patch pockets!

    It does have a minor flaw--a small thread run at the back near the hem, but this is very hard to see, especially when the jacket is worn, and doesn't affect its function at all. As such, this is in Very Good condition, and so is a steal at just

    $25, or offer.

    Measurements:


    Chest: 21 1/4
    Sleeve: 26 1/2 (+2)
    Shoulder: 18 1/4
    Length: 32
