    I have three beautiful Spring/Summer jackets to pass on today..... with many more on their way!

    As always, FREE SHIPPING ON EVERYTHING IN THE CONUS, with International inquiries welcome, and shipping at cost!


    Please PM with interest and offers!

    1) BEAUTIFUL Hand-Tailored Spring jacket from Tom James! Working cuffs, fully canvassed!

    This was formerly the property of Michael Sapnar, currently CEO of Transatlantic Holdings, Inc., who earns roughly 60 times what I do each year--lucky man!

    This jacket is a beauty, and he must have spent a lot on it. Cut from beautifully soft cloth in perfect Spring tones of blue, peat and slate, this is fully canvassed and fully lined. It was hand-tailored, and beautifully made by Tom James. It features a twin vent, which carries with it an interior retainer to prevent flare. It also has working surgeon's cuffs. WIth the exception of two or three loose stitches in the lining one one corner of the vent this jacket is in absolutely excellent condition. It was hand-tailored in the USA.

    Asking just $49, or offer.


    Chest: 21 1/2
    Sleeve: 24 1/8 (+2)
    Shoulder: 19
    Length: 29 1/4

    2) MADE IN ENGLAND light-mid-weight houndstooth jacket

    Cut from cloth woven in Huddersfield, one of the traditional woolen manufacturing centres of England, this beautiful jacket was also Made in England, and carries its heritage well--beautifully cut with a lovely lapel roll, unvented in Flusser approved style, with a small and subtle houndstooth pattern in moss green, slate grey, and dark blue. This is half-canvassed and fully lined, and would be the perfect jacket for Spring! It's in absolutely excellent condition.

    Asking just $40, or offer.

    Tagged a 40L, and measures:

    Chest: 21 1/2
    Sleeve: 26 1/4 (+1 3/4)
    Shoulder: 19
    Length: 32

    3) Brooks Brothers Spring guncheck

    A lovely jacket for Spring! This is a standard two-button front, subtly darted. The guncheck itself is a lovely light medley of russet, pear, and grey on a tan background--perfect for Spring! This jacket is half-canvassed and fully lined, and has a single center vent. It was made in the USA. Apart from the laundry mark on the interior hangtag this is in excellent condition--it even has the two front pockets basted shut, so clearly it was worn very sparingly!

    Asking just $35, or offer.

    tagged a 42R, this measures:

    Chest: 22 1/8
    Sleeve: 25 (+1 1/4)
    Shoulder: 19 1/4
    Length: 31
