I have several beautiful jackets to pass on today, including a wonderful Harris Tweed from Landau's, a beautiful Samuelsohn, and a very rare unstructured tweed 3/2 sack from Italy!


Please PM with interest and offers!

1) BEAUTIFUL Harris Tweed from Landau's of Princeton!

Landau's of Princeton is one of my favorite stores--they carry a lovely selection of lodens, tweeds, and Scottish woolens, and are invariably friendly and pleasant. I highly recommend a visit if you're ver in Princeton!

This jacket is a lovely example of what they offer. The tweed is a lovely patterning and colourway; a lovely rare barleycorn weave in charcoal, slate grey, and Royal blue, all of which are beautifully and subtly heathered together. The jacket is a contemporary two-button front, with subtle darting and four button cuffs. It is fully lined, half-canvassed, and has a single centre vent. It is in excellent condition!

Asking just $40, boxed and shipped in CONUS, or offer.

Tagged a 42L, this measures:

Chest: 21 3/4
Sleeve: 25 1/2 (+1 3/4)
Shoulder: 19 1/4
Length: 31 1/4

2) BEAUTIFUL recent Brooks Brothers camelhair jacket -- a 3/2 sack!


This is wonderful! Cut from lovely soft camelhair, this recent offering from Brooks Brothers is cut as a 3/2 sack, and has a lovely lapel roll. The colourway is also lovely--a beautiful, subtle glen plaid in slate grey and charcoal with a very subtle chestnut overcheck.

This jacket is half-canvassed and fully lined; it has a single center vent, three button cuffs, and was Made in the USA. It's in excellent condition.

Asking just $45, or offer.

Tagged a 44R, this measures:

Chest: 22
Sleeve: 25 (+ 2 1/4)
Shoulder: 19 3/4
Length: 31 1/2

3) BEAUTIFUL Samuelsohn Jacket with Patch pockets!


This is wonderful! Cut from Italian fabric with a wonderful hand and drape, the colourway of the cloth is a beautiful heathery mix of rich dark chestnut and blue-tinged slate grey in a basketweave pattern.

The jacket is wonderfully unstructured, although with enough attention to detail and careful tailoring that it will drape while worn, rather than simply hang. It is a sack cut, albeit with some careful shaping on the tailored sides, and features patch pockets, and a three button front with just the hint of a lapel roll beginning at the top button. It is unvented, in Flusser approved style. It also features pick-stitching on the lapels. It was made in Canada.

I have the provenance of this jacket, and it was never worn; it was only tried on. Testament to this is the fact that some of the original basting remains in the back hem, and the original spare button in its unopened original packaging is included. This is, of course, in excellent condition.

Asking just $65, or offer.

Chest: 22
Sleeve: 24 (+1 3/4)
Shoulder: 19 3/4 (cut so as to drape into the start of the sleeve)
Length: 31

4) BEAUTIFUL Cashmere and Wool herringbone jacket

This jacket is cut from a wonderful cloth that's a mixture of cashmere (10) and wool (90) and that was woven in Italy. It has a wonderful hand and drape, and the colourway is beautiful--a classic grey and cream herringbone, with petrol blue and manilla orange flecking throughout--a wonderfully complex and subtly colorful combination!

The jacket is subtly darted, with a three button front and jetted pockets. It is also unvented, in Flusser--approved style, and fully lined. It appears to be half-canvassed, Like the Samuelsohn, above, I have the full provenance of this jacket, and it was only worn to be tried on. It comes complete with its original spare buttons and fabric swatch in their unopened packet. This is, of course, in excellent condition.

Asking just $45, or offer.

Tagged a 43L, this measures:

Chest: 22 1/2
Sleeve: 26 1/2 (+1 3/4)
Shoulder: 20 1/2
Length: 33

5) RARE Italian 3/2 tweed sack!

This is a wonderful rarity--if it's your size, grab it! Made in Italy, this is a 3/2 sack jacket--but a very, very unstructured one, combining Italian tailoring with an American classic style. It is quarter-lined, and unvented, in Flusser-approved style. It has a lovely lapel roll, and the pockets are flapped. It features three button cuffs, and appears to be half-canvassed.

There's no fabric content on the tweed, but it's extremely soft, so I wouldn't be surprised if it was either shetland or possibly even a wool-cashmere blend. What is certain is that the colouring and patterning is wonderful--a lovely dark forest green-brown herringbone, flecked throughout with blue, burnt orange, red, cream, and brown. It was made in Italy.

This is in excellent condition.

Asking just $45, or offer.


Chest: 23
Sleeev: 24 1/2 (+1 1/2)
Shoulder: 20 1/4
Length: 30 3/4

6) Lovely Nailhead Camelhair with Windowpaning by Thos. David. Horn buttons!

This is lovely, and a perfect jacket for Spring! Cut from wonderfully soft camelhair, this jacket is a beautiful charcoal nailhead, with a lovely windowpaning overcheck in russet and blue, which manages to be both subtle and bold at the same time--not an easy combination to pull off!

The jacket is a standard two-button front jacket, with subtle darting. It features four button cuffs--and I believe that all of the buttons are horn. The jacket is fully lined, and half-canvassed, and features a single center vent. It was made in the USA, and is in excellent condition.

Asking just $45, or offer, shipped in the CONUS--the buttons alone are worth this!


Chest: 21 1/2
Sleeve: 26 3/8 (+2 1/4)
Shoulder: 19
Length: 32 1/4
