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.

    SERIOUS PRICE CUTS ACROSS THE BOARD! I have a lot more items to list, and so I've consolidated my jacket threads--all of which were due to be bumped!--here. There's also some serious price drops on most items, and ALL OFFERS ARE VERY WELCOME!

    ALL PRICES INCLUDE SHIPPING IN CONUS!!

    Again--ALL OFFERS ARE VERY WELCOME!


    1) MADE IN ITALY BEAUTIFUL Spring Olive-y camelhair

    SOLD

    The fabric on this jacket is wonderful--far, far softer than camelhair usually is, with a wonderful drape and hand. The cloth was woven in Italy, and is a lovely pale olive soft herringbone--perfect for sipping a Martini outside in the Spring!

    The cut is also wonderfully Continental, with a three button front, elegant darting, and twin vents--like the cloth, the jacket was also made in Italy. It is half-canvassed and fully lined. It is in excellent condition, except for a single start of a thread pull on the left-hand sleeve near the elbow--so, overall, this is in Very Good/Excellent condition. However, it was clearly rarely worn--all of the front pockets are still sewn shut.

    This is thus a steal at just $25 > 23 > 21 > 19, or offer!

    Tagged a 42R, this measures:


    Chest: 22
    Sleeve: 26 (+2 1/4)

    This is a very nice jacket! Cut from a complex basketweave cloth with a subtle russet overcheck, this is that oddity--a darted jacket with a 3/2 lapel roll! Made in Canada, this appears to be half-canvassed, and is fully lined. It has a single centre vent, four button cuffs, and is in absolutely excellent condition.

    3) Italian miniature houndstooth 3/2 sack jacket from Brooks Brothers

    FREE! TAKEN

    This is lovely! Made in Italy, this lovely Spring-Summer weight jacket is all wool, and is cut from a lovely miniature houdstooth. Half-canvassed and fully lined, this has a single centre vent, and is cut as a classic 3/2 sack. The breast pocket is still basted shut, and it's in excellent condition apart from a very, very small blemish on the lapel that I have only just noticed, and had to squint at to make sure that it wasn't just part of the pattern. This is hardly noticeable at all, and might well come out with a dry clean, but it is there, and so this jacket is

    4) Made in the USA of Scottish lambswool Boss Barleycorn jacket with overcheck.

    Admittedly, this isn't as Trad as most of my offerings, and also admittedly Boss gets little love here (as it shouldn't, at full retail), but this is a wonderful jacket, and so worthy of offering! First, this is cut from wonderfuly soft Scottish lambswool, woven in Scotland by ALexander's, so this has a wonderful hand and drape. The colourway and patterning of the cloth is also terrific--a lovely classic grey and cream barleycorn, with a very subtle overcheck of lilac and burnt orange. The jacket is fully lined, and half-canvassed, has a three button front, jetted pockets, and is unvented, as Flusser would approve. It was also Made in the USA.

    SOLD

    This is absolutely STUNNING!! Cut from handwoven Donegal Tweed, this wonderful jacket is a serious rarity, being both a three-buttoned tweed, and a handwoven Dongela that's a puppytooth.. with a fantastic colourway, being a slateblue and peat black puppytooth flecked with gorse yellow, moss and forest greens, pumpkin orange, and berry red. This Donegal easily rivals the more complex Harris tweeds, and is both striking and subtle. A really wonderful tweed, with great texture and a fantastic colourway! It was woven by one D. Hood, who has signed it.

    The jacket does the tweed justice, too. Made by Magee, the main maker of Donegal tweeds, in Ireland, this is a rare three button jacket, featuring side vents and three button cuffs. It is half canvassed and fully lined, and the tweed is a wonderful substantial weight. This relaly is a fantastic jacket for the Fall, Winter, and early Spring!

    7) BEAUTIFUL Harris Tweed from Landau's of Princeton!

    SOLD

    Landau's of Princeton is one of my favorite stores--they carry a lovely selection of lodens, tweeds, and Scottish woolens, and are invariably friendly and pleasant. I highly recommend a visit if you're ver in Princeton!

    This jacket is a lovely example of what they offer. The tweed is a lovely patterning and colourway; a lovely rare barleycorn weave in charcoal, slate grey, and Royal blue, all of which are beautifully and subtly heathered together. The jacket is a contemporary two-button front, with subtle darting and four button cuffs. It is fully lined, half-canvassed, and has a single centre vent. It is in excellent condition!

    8) BEAUTIFUL Cashmere and Wool herringbone jacket


    SOLD

    This jacket is cut from a wonderful cloth that's a mixture of cashmere (10) and wool (90) and that was woven in Italy. It has a wonderful hand and drape, and the colourway is beautiful--a classic grey and cream herringbone, with petrol blue and manilla orange flecking throughout--a wonderfully complex and subtly colorful combination!

    The jacket is subtly darted, with a three button front and jetted pockets. It is also unvented, in Flusser--approved style, and fully lined. It appears to be half-canvassed. I have the full provenance of this jacket, and it was only worn to be tried on. It comes complete with its original spare buttons and fabric swatch in their unopened packet.

    9) RARE Italian 3/2 tweed sack!

    SOLD

    This is a wonderful rarity--if it's your size, grab it! Made in Italy, this is a 3/2 sack jacket--but a very, very unstructured one, combining Italian tailoring with an American classic style. It is quarter-lined, and unvented, in Flusser-approved style. It has a lovely lapel roll, and the pockets are flapped. It features three button cuffs, and appears to be half-canvassed.

    There's no fabric content on the tweed, but it's extremely soft, so I wouldn't be surprised if it was either shetland or possibly even a wool-cashmere blend. What is certain is that the colouring and patterning is wonderful--a lovely dark forest green-brown herringbone, flecked throughout with blue, burnt orange, red, cream, and brown. It was made in Italy.

    This is in excellent condition.

    Asking just $27, or offer.

    This is lovely, and a perfect jacket for Spring! Cut from wonderfully soft camelhair, this jacket is a beautiful charcoal nailhead, with a lovely windowpaning overcheck in russet and blue, which manages to be both subtle and bold at the same time--not an easy combination to pull off!

    The jacket is a standard two-button front jacket, with subtle darting. It features four button cuffs--and I believe that all of the buttons are horn. The jacket is fully lined, and half-canvassed, and features a single center vent. It was made in the USA, and is in excellent condition.

    Asking just $27 > 25 > 22, or offer, shipped in the CONUS--the buttons alone are worth this!

    SOLD

    20) 38R PURE LINEN jacket by Boss--Made in Italy.

    21) BEAUTIFUL & CLASSIC Gingham jacket by Hardwick!

    SOLD

    Like PBM, Hardwick is one of the more overlooked American trad. clothiers--a pity, as their lighter-weight clothes have been Ivy summer staples for years. And this beautiful gingham jacket shows why. Made in the USA, this jacket is wonderfully versatile--as comfortable as seersucker of vintage Madras, but with a more subdued patterning, and hence much easier to wear. This jacket is fully lined in an ivory-coloured lining, has a single centre vent, a two button front, and three button cuffs. Although there is no fabric content listed it is clearly cotton.

    22) Paul Stuart Blazer--From VICE ADMIRAL USN (Ret) N. Ronald Thurman! CONNECTION TO THE TITANIC! c. 46XL


    SOLD

    [​IMG]
    [/CENTER]

    This jacket is absolutely wonderful--both in itself, and because of its provenance! This was formerly the property of Vice Admiral N. Ronald Thurman, the Vice Admiral of the USN who oversaw the undersea exploratory expedition that discovered the remains of the Titanic. (The USN was not interested in the Titanic, but in two sunken naval nuclear submarines; the Titanic just happened to be in the same area!) Because of this, one of Thurman's many distinctions is that for a short period of time only he and the oceanographer in change of the expedition at sea knew that the Titanic had been found.

    If you're a Titanic buff, this would make this jacket pretty darn appealing. But even if you're not, the jacket's appealing in and of itself! Cut from a lovely dark bottle-green cloth (no Master's comments here!) with a wonderful hand and drape this features subtle darts and flapped pockets. It is fully lined, and half-canvassed. It features a single centre vent, and four kissing metal cuff buttons on each sleeve; these have a wonderful metallic tone that complements the cloth beautifully.

    It was Made in Canada by Paul Stuart.

    This jacket is in excellent condition except for a minor smudge on one sleeve, which might or might not come out with dry-cleaning; hence, this is in Very Good condition only.

    As such, given the provenance of this jacket, as well as its quality and beauty, how about just $29 > 27 > 25, boxed and shipped in CONUS, with lower offers being VERY welcome? International inquiries are also welcome, with shipping at cost!

    Measurements:

    Tagged 46XL

    Chest: 23 1/8
    Sleeve: 26 1/2 (+2)
    Shoulder: 19 1/2
    Length (BOC): 34

    NB: My apologies for the orientation of some of the pictures--photobucket isn't cooperating!​
