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,

    Fok.

    ICONIC IVY LEAGUE FALL JACKET!

    Harris Tweed 3/2 sack from the Harvard Coop!

    [​IMG]
    It really doesn't get much more Ivy League Fall than this! There's been some discussion on AAAT about the increasing rarity of classic grey herringbone Harris Tweed, and not only is this jacket cut from that iconic wardrobe staple, but it's a beauty! It's a classic 3/2 sack--itself a rarity in Harris Tweed--and is half-canvassed and fully lined. It has a single center vent, and the buttons are the classic leather-clad football buttons--here, in a lovely, rich, dark, burnished chestnut that perfectly complements the tweed. The jacket has a lovely lapel roll, and it was tailored in the USA--expressly for the Harvard Coop, of Cambridge, Mass.! (Where else?)

    This jacket is in excellent condition.

    I've handled a lot of Harris Tweed in my time, and this jacket has some of the most superb Ivy credentials I've seen. Taken individually--classic grey herringbone Harris Tweed, 3/2 sack, Harvard Coop--each aspect of this jacket would make it stand out, but when put together the result is a jacket of true rarity and distinction.

    As such, this is a steal at just $85, boxed and shipped in CONUS--with OFFERS WELCOME! International inquiries are also welcome, with shipping at cost.

    Measurements:

    NB: This appears to be c.42R, judging by fit but as always, please check measurements!

    Chest: 21 1/8
    Sleeve: 25 (+1 1/2)
    Shoulder: 18 1/2
    Length: 30 3/4
