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,

    I have some more beautiful Spring and Summer jackets to pass on today, including a ridiculously luxurious and beautiful jacket cut from a wonderful 85/15 cashmere-silk blend cloth.

    As always, FREE SHIPPING ON EVERYTHING IN THE CONUS; International inquiries are welcome, with shipping at cost.

    Also as always, OFFERS ARE VERY WELCOME!

    Please PM with interest and offers!


    1) BEAUTIFUL and subtle pale seafoam green wool/silk jacket.

    SOLD

    This is absolutely wonderful! The cloth is wonderful-a very, very pale seafoam green with warp and weft of light blue throughout, all woven in a wonderfully complex basketweave pattern--my pictures really don't do this justice. The cloth is 45/55 silk/wool. This appears to be fully canvassed, and is fully lined. It has a single centre vent, and was Made in Canada. Its only flaw is a small smudge on the lining on one side; otherwise this is in excellent condition. The front breast pocket is still sewn shut!

    Asking just $45, or offer.

    Tagged a 41R, this measures:


    Chest: 22
    Sleeve: 24 1/4 (+1 1/2)
    Shoulder: 18 1/2
    Length: 31

    2) GORGEOUS wool & mohair blazer by Bullock and Jones of San Francisco.

    This is absolutely beautiful! The colourway is wonderful--a very deep, rich, luxurious Royal blue, as befits a cloth that's a mixture of 20% mohair and 80% wool--a combination that has a simply outstanding hand and drape. This blazer could be suited for cool Spring evenings, but it's too substantial for summer--it would also do well in early Fall, and even though winter. This appears to be fully canvassed and it is certainly fully lined. It was Union made in the USA by Hickey Freeman for Bullock and Jones, one of the most luxurious stores in San Francisco. It has a single centre vent, and it is in excellent condition.

    This is a gorgeous jacket, and a steal at just $60 > 50 > 45, or offer.

    Tagged a 48L, this measures:

    Chest: 25
    Sleeve: 25 3/4 (+1 3/4)
    Shoulder: 21 1/2
    Length: 33 1/2

    3) BEAUTIFUL Classic Ivory Silk Jacket by Brooks Brothers.

    This is gorgeous! Made for Brooks Brothers' "Brooksgate" line, the entry-level Brooks that was cut slightly more trimly than heir main line, this is half-canvassed and fully lined. Beautifully cut from a lovely textured silk cloth the colour of old ivory, shot through with raw cane sugar brown, this lovely jacket has patch pockets, a centre vent, classic two button cuffs, and is subtly darted. This is in excellent condition! It was, of course, Made in the USA.

    Asking just $45 > 39 > 35, or offer.

    Chest: 21 3/4
    Sleeve: 23 (+ 2 1/4)
    Shoulder: 19
    Length: 29 1/4

    4) BEAUTIFUL Linen Windowpane Jacket by Brooks Brothers

    SOLD

    This is wonderful--a true Ivy summer classic! Made by Brooks Brothers, this is cut from a lovely linen cloth with a wonderful hand and drape. The colouring is a light navy, with a cream windowpane overcheck. This is half-canvassed, and fully lined with a complementary ivory lining. It has a single centre vent. This was recently made in the USA.

    It has a dry cleaner's tag on the inside,and because of this and I'm very conservative with rating linens it's in Very Good/Excellent condition. As such, I'm asking

    just $55, or offer.

    Measurements:

    Chest: 20 1/2
    Sleeve: 25 1/4 (+2)
    Shoulder: 18 1/2
    Length: 31 1/2

    5) STRIKING Scarlet Summer 3/2 sack by Brooks Brothers


    SOLD

    This is wonderful! Cut from a striking scarlet cloth, this is wonderful for both a summer on Nantucket or taking a basket of food to Grandma through the Wild Woods. Cut from a sturdy hopsack cloth that's great for the summer as it's very wrinkle-resistant, this jacket is the Trad Icon--a 3/2 sack with THREE PATCH POCKETS! This also has a single centre vent, is half-canvassed, and is made in the USA. It is half-lined.

    It does have some blemishes (especially on the lower left by the hem and on the left sleeve), but this are minor. However, because of them this is in Good/very Good condition only, and hence

    asking only $25, or offer.

    Measurements:

    Chest: 21 3/4
    Sleeve: 24 1/2 (+1 3/4)
    Shoulder: 18 1/4
    Length: 30 1/4

    6) GORGEOUS! BEAUTIFUL Cashmere and SIlk Jacket by Jack Victor.

    This is exquisite! Cut from a wonderfully luxurious fabric that's 85% cashmere and 15% silk, the beauty of this jacket really has to be seen in person to be appreciated. A lovely sky-blue, this has a lovely windowpane overcheck the colour of light raw sugar; the whole fabric is beautifully soft and wonderfully textured. The jacket lives up to the quality of the fabric that it is cut from. It is fully canvassed, fully lined, and has a single centre vent. It was made in Canada, ad is in excellent condition!

    Asking just $65 > 55 > 50, or offer.

    Tagged a 46L, this measures:


    Chest: 24
    Sleeve: 26 1/2 (+1 3/4)
    Shoulder: 20
    Length: 33 1/2
