    I have some terrific tradly jackets to pass along today--including a classic herringbone Harris Tweed, a superb 1960's petrol blue jacket, and two classic mid-century 3/2 sacks!


    International inquiries are welcome, with shipping at cost.

    Please PM with interest and offers!

    1) CLASSIC Dark Herringbone 3/2 sack tweed.

    This is lovely--and features all of the tradly desiderata! First, it's a lovely 3/2 sack with a beautiful lapel roll. It also is half-canvassed, and fully lined. It also features lapped seams on both the shoulders and the sleeves, as well as the classic two button cuffs. It has a single center vent, and was Union made in the USA. The colourway is lovely--a herringbone in dark peat black with dark mossy forest green.

    This is in excellent condition!

    Incidentally, this jacket dates from when JAB was still making things well--the current Banks has no relation to the old one except in name!

    Asking just $40 > 35, or offer.

    2) CLASSIC Herringbone Harris Tweed!


    There/s been some discussion recently about the difficulty of finding Harris Tweed in this utterly classic pattern and colourway--grey and cream herringbone--soI'm pleased to have one here today! This is a standard two-button front, with metal-shanked leather-covered buttons, a single vent, and half-lining. It's half-canvassed and was made in the USA. The tweed is lovely, but there is some minor water discoloration to the lining by one of the interior pockets 9and the original owner's name is written inside this!), and one of the front buttons could do with being sewn on more firmly, and it could do with a press. So, this is in Very Good condition, and hence

    asking just $25, boxed and shipped in CONUS--a stealfor a tweed like this!

    3) WONDERFUL and utterly "Mad Men" 1960's petrol blue jacket with narror peak lapels!


    This jacket is AWESOME.... and if you like it (and you should) and it'll fit you grab it, as you won't see another like this!

    half-canvassed and half-lined in an utterly 1960s paisley, this gem of a jacket is wonderfully cut in 1960's fashion--very narrow peak lapels, jetted pockets, twin vents, and two button cuffs. The cut alone makes this awesome, but it's also a perfectly 1960's "conservative" fashion pattern and colourway--petrol blue nailhead, which you just never see anymore! This was Union Made in the USA, and is in excellent condition--the only flaw being the original owner's initial stencilled onto the inside lining of the interior pocket.

    This is one fantastic, rare, and utterly cool jacket!

    Asking just $50, or offer--a steal for something as cool as this!


    Chest: 20 1/2

    4) Vintage 3/2 tweed sack in a wonderful collegiate check!

    Another awesome jacket! This is simply wonderful. First, the cut is perfect--a very high 2.5/3 roll sack, with just the hint of a lapel roll right at the top; perfectly and insouciantly Ivy! The jacket also appears to be fully canvassed, and is half-lined. It features the classic two button cuffs, flapped pickets, and a center rear vent.

    The colourway is wonderful--utterly 1950s collegiate! A charcoal grey with a dark charcoal and dukll burnt mustard overcheck, this is really, really appealing--and a pattern and colouring that just isn't seen anymore.

    Moreover, this was Made for Wallach's flagship store, right on Fifth Avenue... and now long, long gone. This was, of course, made in the USA, and is a wonderful, wearable vintage piece. There is the tiniest hint of a fray right at the edge of the jacket by the middle button, as shown, but otherwise this is in excellent condition!

    Asking just $45 > 40, or offer--an absolute steal!
