I have 20 more lovely jackets to pass on today, including some grail items, such as a cord Half-Norfolk from the old-school Abercrombie & Fitch, a solid-colour Harris Tweed from Smith's of Bermuda, several 3/2 sacks, and more!

As always, I offer FREE SHIPPING ON EVERYTHING within the US; International inquiries are welcome, with shipping at reduced cost!

Also as always, ALL OFFERS ARE VERY WELCOME!

Please PM with interest and offers!

1) CLASSIC Grey and Cream Herringbone Tweed 3/2 sack!


Made by H. Oritsky, of Reading, PA., this is a classic 3/2 sack grey and cream herringbone tweed jacket--a true wardrobe staple. Half-canvassed and half-lined, this has three button cuffs and a single center vent. It has very natural shoulders. It was, of course, Union Made in the USA, and is in absolutely excellent condition.

Asking just $45, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA.

Measurements:


Chest: 21
Sleeve: 25 1/4 (+2 1/4)
Shoulder: 18 1/2
Length: 31 1/4











3) WONDERFUL Vintage Half-Norfolk in cord by OLD SCHOOL Abercrombie & Fitch


Made by Abercrombie & Fitch back when it was a serious outdoors outfitters--they outfitted Teddy Roosevelt for his hunting expeditions, Charles Lindbergh for flying, and sold Hemingway the gun he used to kill himself--this is a lovely and very rare Half-Norfolk Jacket in wide-wale cord.

As with all products from the old-school Abercrombie & Fitch this jacket is extremely well-made, and designed fro use in the field, not just to look good in the office. As with all classic Half-Norfolk jackets this features a stitched half-belt at the back. The back above the belt features a box pleat for ease of movement--and more elegant lines than a biswing back when not needed for use--and the shoulders feature scalloped yoke. Below the half-belt is a single center vent.

True to its American roots this is cut as a true 3/2 sack jacket. It features four deep flapped bellows pockets on the front, all of which feature box pleats so that they can expand to accept shells, knives, or very small game animals. The buttons are all genuine shotshell buttons (the front buttons are from Remington 12 gauge shells, the cuff buttons from smaller gauges) and are likely original to the jacket. (Genuine shotshell buttons are becoming increasingly rare, despite their long tenure as being staples of the sporting Ivy wardrobe.) The pocket seams are all lapped for extra strength. The right hand lower front pocket features an internal ticket pocket.

The jacket is half-canvassed and fully lined. The top half of the lining appears to be satin, chosen for ease of movement on and off. The bottom half appears to be a heavyweight cotton in a classic tartan pattern; this also appears under the flaps of the three front pockets.

This jacket was Made in the USA by Gordon of Philadelphia--this is signified by the rooster emblem on the locker loop. It carries the classic vintage Abercrombie & Fitch green and black label.

The cord of this jacket has some overall darkening and discolouration from age, but this simply gives it patina and adds to its appeal. This is a REAL hunting Half-Norfolk, not a costume. However, it could use a dry clean and a press to freshen it up, and so with the discolorartion this is in Very Good condition. As such, this is an absolute bargain at just $65, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA.

Measurements:

Chest: 20 1/2
Sleeve: 24 3/4 (+1 3/4)
Shoulder: 18
Length: 30 1/2

















5) BEAUTIFUL English Cashmere Twill Blazer!

Baron of Piccadilly used to be well-known for being the only store in Britain that routinely offered discounts of Barbour clothing. Not surprisingly, as well as being a Barbour stockist Baron also stocked many other wonderful items of clothing. This beautiful cashmere blazer is a good example. Likely dating from the early 1980s the cashmere of this jacket is seriously thick and soft, not the mall cashmere that's so widespread now. The cloth was loomed in Huddersfield, England, and is a wonderful twill weave.

The jacket does full justice to the cloth. Cut as a contemporary two button model with subtle darting and beautifully narrow lapels this has a single center vent and three button cuffs. It is fully canvassed, and fully lined, and was Made in England. It carries the classic Baron label. It is in excellent condition, and a bargain at just $65, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA--this is a steal for an English cashmere blazer of this quality!

Chest: 19 7/8
Sleeve: 25 1/2 (+1 3/4)
Shoulder: 17 1/2
Length: 30

A lovely, sturdy tweed in a heathery grey and cream basketweave with lovely subtle chestnut brown accents, this is a contemporary two-button jacket with subtle darting. It features two patch pockets with flaps; these are surrounded by lapped seams. It has a single center vent and four button cuffs; all of the buttons are leather-covered metal-shanked football buttons. It is fully lined, and in excellent condition.

10) BEAUTIFUL Harris Tweed from H.A. & E. Smith of Bermuda!

H.A. & E. Smith was established on Bermuda in 1889. Together with Trimingham's and The English Sports Shop it was the third main upscale clothing store on Bermuda, boasting at one time that it had the widest selection of cashmere sweaters anywhere in the Western hemisphere.

Smith's closed in 2001, but you can still find examples of its wares that show clearly why it so famous for the quality of its clothing--and this Harris Tweed jacket is one example.

Made in England for Smith's, this jacket is cut from an absolutely beautiful and extremely rare bold plaid Harris Tweed in a wonderful medly of autumnal brackens, russets, chestnut browns and dark moss green. Cut as a contemporary two button front jacket it has subtle darts and the utterly correct and traditional British single button cuff. The buttons are, of course, metal shanked and leather covered football buttons. This has a single center vent, is fully canvassed, and fully lined. It also carries the classic 1960s label announcing that this is "All Wool" and "Made in England" , as well as the classic Harris Tweed orb label and a wonderful vintage Smith's label.

I'm conservative in rating vintage items, so this is in very Good/Excellent condition--and is absolutely beautiful!

11) CLASSIC Harris Tweed Jacket from DiTorio's of Pennington, NJ

This was originally sold by DiTorio's of Pennington, NJ--an extremely trad. clothier, now long gone, that catered to the more rurally inclined trads of neighbouring Princeton. Pennington itself is a beautiful pre-Revolutionary War small town; the cemetery on Main Street is bounded by a wall that British troops exercised their horses over in 1775, and Frederick Forsyth set the start of his novel Avenger in Pennington, as embodying classic small town America.

This jacket embodies the wares that were offered by DiTorio's. Cut from a very sturdy, heavier-weight Harris Tweed of a heft that gave Harris its worldwide reputation and is now increasingly rare, this is a lovely classic grey herringbone that is accented with classic Harris tweed vertical stripes in chestnut brown and sky blue. It appears to be half-canvassed, and it is half-lined. It features a single center vent and three button cuffs. It was Made in the USA, and is in absolutely excellent condition--the top breast pocket is still basted shut!

15) WONDERFUL Solid Mustard Harris Tweed Jacket, Made in England for Archie Brown, Bermuda

Archie Brown, with Trimingham's, Smith's, and The English Sports Shop, was a Bermudian institution until its closure, being famous both for its offerings of upscale British clothing and also for the bagpiper who played in the store every day at noon.

This marvellous jacket shows just why Brown's was so famous. Likely dating from the early 1960s this beauty was Made in England. It has the traditional British three button front and the high lapels, harking back to its hacking jacket heritage. The Harris Tweed that it is cut from is the traditional heavyweight Harris with the rather rough and slightly hairy hand--just what you'd want in a tweed of this calibre! It is also an extremely rare solid colour tweed--the colour of English mustard! It is fully canvassed and fully lined. It is unvented, and has four button cuffs. All of the original buttons are intact, and all are the traditional leather-covered metal-shanked football buttons. This also carries a full set of lovely vintage labels.

25) GRAIL!! Brooks Brothers Vintage 3/2 Navy Flannel Blazer.

This is absolutely gorgeous! Cut from wonderfully luxurious heavier medium-weight flannel cloth in classic dark navy blue, this blazer is a true GRAIL item--a Brooks Brothers flannel navy blazer with a 3/2 lapel roll! Although this has the traditional 3/2 lapel roll note that this is not a sack jacket, for it features subtle darts. The reason for this Brooks anomaly simple--this blazer was made for Brooks Brothers' "Brooksgate" line, which was aimed at younger men just starting their relationship with Brooks Brothers (hence, "Brooksgate" being the gateway to Brooks Brothers). Since younger men (at least when this jacket was made..) have not yet acquired the girth that might be needed to make a sack fit well without needing side seam alterations to taper it this jacket is darted for a sleeker fit.... although the 3/2 lapel is still present to introduce the Brooksgate customers to its elegance.

In addition to have a 3/2 lapel--with, here, a beautiful roll--this blazer also has the classic two button cuffs, and the highly desirable flapped patch pockets. All of the buttons are Brooks Brothers' "Brooksgate" buttons (no longer produced) and so are original to this jacket. This jacket is half-canvassed and half-lined, and has a single center vent. It was, of course, Union made in the USA, and is in absolutely excellent condition.

Asking just $69 > 59, or offer, for this wonderful jacket!

26) GRAIL!! Langrock Navy Blazer

Together with Norman Hilton and Chipp Langrock of Princeton was primarily responsible for both developing and popularizing the "The Natural Shoulder Ivy League Style", and near the end of its life Langrock continued to run adverts proudly boasting that it was the ONLY remaining store in American that truly exemplified the American Look, by which it meant Ivy Style. So famous is Langrock that even its labels are becoming collectible, and so I'm very pleased to offer this wonderful classic navy blazer from the mothership of Ivy Style.

This blazer is also unusual, in that it is not a 3/2 sack, but instead a two button contemporary model with darting. It is cut from a lovely navy hopsack cloth--which turns out to be a blend of wool and polyester. This is not that surprising, though, since the polyester of the 1960s and early 1970s was NOT the polyester of today, but was woven so that it came very, very close to feeling just like wool--you wouldn't be able to tell that this was a blended fabric unless you knew. This jacket has a single center vent, is half-canvassed and half-lined. It has very natural shoulders, and red piping around the perimeter of the lining for added flair. It also features the ever-desirable flapped patch pockets, as well as heraldic buttons that were made by Waterbury of Conn.--a company founded in 1812 and the premier suppliers of stamped brass buttons in the United States. When Grant met Lee at the Appomattox Courthouse, both men were wearing Waterbury buttons on their uniforms!

This jacket is in excellent condition, and so is a bargain at just $49 > 39, or offer.
