    Jackets were so long then. I much prefer the shorter ones of today. On one episode of Mad Men I noticed the oldest man wearing the longest jacket with Roger Sterling wearing a shorter one and Don Draper wearing the shortest of the three.

    Not really, this one is greenish yellow and boucle. The two piece is orangish light brown and herringbone alas did not fit. Search for tweed vest continues.

    Arthur Rosenberg - a hard to find name. Not to be confused with Tony Randall. Done in a HEAVY Harris Tweed brown herringbone with stripes. Not Ivy-styled in the least, darts and 2-button front. Size 42 or 43 L.

    +1 What a piece, the lapels are the perfect width! Surprising as it's from 75... :slayer:

    Don't say not Ivy Styled. Arthur Rosenberg was a prominent New Haven Tailor along with J.Prees and later Chipp.
    I still have several jackets/suits from the 80s/early 90s from Chipp which are cut more or less the same way.
    The key is natural shoulders. welt seams and other details. Some of us have big shoulders and chests and
    and narrowish waists and actually look better in this Ivy variant. Unfortunately, these clothes no longer really fit me
    anymore.

    Must have been made for a Yank. Those are not typical Huntsman shoulders
