    Spoo - those are great, particularly the one with the Roesti recipe!

    Here's a great Scottish Camelhair hacking jacket. Ticket pocket, 3/2 roll, Made in the USA by... Chaps Ralph Lauren! Their early wares are almost always worth picking up as the quality is superb. This one is kind of in-between a 38 and 40 Short.

    I have never been much attracted to pocket squares, but holy hell those things are incredible.

    Are you selling this one, or just showing it off?

    Great source of knowledge you have. Sounds accurate in terms of dating the piece.

    Has anyone heard of this particular tailor? It's a wonderful jacket, weighs half a ton and has a lot of handwork. (40 S)

    Do the pants bear the same label? Shouldn't they have double braid, rather than a satin stripe.

    ITG, technically white tie trousers should have a double stripe, yes. But it seems to be a rule honored more in the breach than in the observance. I've seen far more with a single stripe than double, especially among those made in the US.

    I've had this one for eons, finally getting around to selling it. Made in the USA but an ostensibly English-cut by Hardy Aimes. Done in a lovely charcoal pinstripe flannel, the jacket has a ticket pocket, double rear vents, and roped shoulders. 3 Pieces, a true size 36 Short. :slayer:

    ...is anyone out there?

    Golden Era Brooks Brothers, every detail is there. One of the best, if not the best, check patterns that I've come across.

    My guess is the 80s, before the acopalypse.
    It turns out htat I am incorrect.The label in the
    jacket was if effect up to 1976.
