So very trad, this one. For all ye devotees of the sack. Details: medium-weight, charcoal/grey flannel plaid; three button roll two; narrow lapels; undarted; flap pockets; center vent; two buttons on each sleeve. In excellent condition. From Gimbel's.

Approximate size--42R.

The jacket's available free of charge to the first forum member from the U.S. or Canada who PMs me; I'll even spring for shipping. The jacket must be for your use, and you must agree not to sell it on eBay or elsewhere.

Great coat. It reminds me of the observation that true classic wear is timeless. I bet the coat is quite old. Is Gimbel's still in business? It brings back memories. Many, many, years ago I lived in NYC and my family used to shop at Macy's. And if we had the time we would always go to Gimbel's, which I seem to remember was across the street. Does Macy's still have the Flagship 34th St. store?

Do any of you remember Gimbel's and where it was exactly?

Gimbel's has been gone for decades. Their building is now an urban mall.

Macy's still rules 34th St.
