    These BEAUTIFUL jackets are both new, and unworn, although they lack their tags and the basting has been removed from the pockets and vent. They are both in immaculate condition, and neither has been altered.

    As always, I offer FREE SHIPPING IN THE USA on both of these jackets; International inquiries are welcome, with shipping at cost.

    Also as always, ALL OFFERS ARE VERY WELCOME!

    Please PM with interest and offers!

    1) BEAUTIFUL "Regent" fit Guncheck Sports Jacket.


    This is absolutely beautiful! New, and unworn, but with the basting removed from its pockets and vent, this is an absolutely beautiful and classic guncheck. The colourway and patterning are wonderful, and beautifully autumnal; horizonal stripes of dark ripe damson purple and bracken complementing the moss green, evening blue, and rich chestnut of the vertical stripes. This is an absolutely beautiful jacket--my pictures don't do it justice at all!

    The cut and quality of the jacket, however, do full justice to the patterning and colourway. This jacket is fully canvassed (indeed, its even labelled as such in case there is doubt!), and features pick stitching throughout the lining. The pockets are flapped, and have terrific pattern matching; this has four button cuffs. true to its sporting heritage this features a twin vent. Although this jacket is subtly darted it has a 3/2 lapel, with a beautifully fluid roll. The shell is, of course, wool, while the half-lining is a blend of bemberg and cotton. The sleeve linings are 100% bemberg.

    This jacket is in absolutely immaculate, as-new condition. It retails for a small fortune at Brooks Brothers, but can be yours for just $75, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA.

    Tagged 43L, and unaltered. This measures:

    Chest: 21 3/8
    Sleeve: 26 (+2)
    Shoulder: 18 3/4
    Length: 31 1/2

    2) ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS! 42L Brooks Brothers "Madison" fit Hacking Jacket. Fabric woven in England!

    As with the guncheck, above, this gorgeous jacket is new, and unworn, although its tags have all been removed and the basting from the pockets and vent has been removed, also.

    This jacket is spectacular! Cut from a beautiful woolen cloth woven in England, the patterning and colourway of the shell are perfectly English, and absolutely perfect for afternoon walks on your estate, grouse shooting on the moors, or simply tramping through the woods in search of chestnuts with the Labrador. This would also be utterly acceptable for a less formal dinner party in the nicer parts of Gloustershire, or to attend the County Court in your role as the local magistrate! The base of this cloth is a classic English moss green; the windowpane overchecking is in russet red and dark blue.

    My pictures don't do this justice at all--but the cut of the jacket does full justice to the quality of the cloth that it's made from! Cut as an English hacking jacket, this has a traditional country three button front. The two primary front pockets are slightly slanted, as you'd expect on a hacking jacket, as is the fully functional ticket pocket. It has slightly military shoulders in the English tradition. This jacket is--of course!--twin vented; moreover, it includes in the interior a lining vent strip, designed to keep the vent from opening too far when the jacket is worn, a feature that very few jackets have unless they are custom made. The jacket is fully canvassed, and fully lined. The lining is Bemberg, and features pick stitching throughout. The jacket has four button cuffs.

    This jacket is in absolutely immaculate condition. Originally, this cost a small fortune; here, it is merely $75, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA.

    Tagged 42L and unaltered. This measures:

    Chest: 21 3/4
    Sleeve: 25 3/4 (+2 1/4)
    Shoulder: 19 3/8
    Length: 32 1/4
