1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    I don't use the term grail lightly, but both of these jackets qualify in their different ways!

    As always, FREE SHIPPING IN THE CONUS, with International inquiries welcome, with shipping at cost.

    Also as always, OFFERS ARE VERY WELCOME!

    Please PM with interest and offers!


    1) STUNNING H. Freeman "Folkweave" Naturalaire 3/2 sack tweed.

    SOLD

    This is absolutely GORGEOUS! A stunning chestnut brown and peat black puppytooth pattern with just a hint of dark moss green blended in, on a honeytan background with a beautiful bold mustard overcheck--this is a beautiful, beautiful jacket! The cut lives up to the colourway and patterning, being a lovely, classic high-roll 3/2.5 sack, with just a hint of a lapel roll where the third button is--a very Ivy cut which is even rarer than its already-now-rare 3/2 cousin.

    This jacket is half-canvassed and half-lined in a late-summer grass green that complements the colourway. It was Made in the USA by H. Freeman, one of the great American clothiers. The fabric is from their "Folkweave" line, and the jacket is a Naturalaire--a reference to its very natural shoulders, another Ivy hallmark. The jacket has unusual buttons which are original to it, a single center vent, and single button cuffs. It is in absolutely excellent condition. If this is your size, grab it--you're unlikely ever to see another one!

    This true Trad. grail is very inexpensively priced at just $85, or offer, boxed and shipped in CONUS.

    Measurements:

    Chest: 20 1/2
    Sleeve: 23 (+1 1/2)
    Shoulder: 17 3/4
    Length: 28 3/4

    2) VERY SMALL Classic herringbone Harris Tweed

    There's been some discussion on AAAC's Trad Forum about how difficult it is becoming to find Harris Tweed in the classic cream and grey herringbone colourway and patterning--so I'm pleased to be able to offer this classic wardrobe staple here!

    That this is a classic Harris, however, doesn't confer Grail status on this jacket--its size does. This is a very small (but perfectly formed!) Harris Tweed, ideal for a small chap.

    This jacket is half-canvassed, fully lined, and has a centre vent. It features the classic football buttons that are perfect with Harris, and these are a beautiful, rich, glossy chestnut brown. It has a contemporary two button closure, and three button cuffs. It also features one of the more unsual Harris Tweed labels; the small rectangle, rather than the large square. Naturally, the Orb is present! It is in absolutely excellent condition.

    This is a beautiful, classic, standard Harris Tweed--in miniature! A Grail indeed.

    Asking just $65, or offer, boxed and shipped in CONUS.

    Measurements:


    Chest: 17 1/2
    Sleeve: 24 1/2 (+1 3/4)
    Shoulder: 17
    Length: 30
