15 CLASSIC SUMMER JACKETS! As always, I offer FREE SHIPPING ON EVERYTHING in the USA; International inquiries are welcome, with shipping at cost! As as always, ALL OFFERS ARE VERY WELCOME! 1) CLASSIC ENGLISH SAVILE ROW SUMMER BLAZER! FROM SCABAL, 12 SAVILE ROW, LONDON. Tagged EU 54 (US 44). Measurements: Chest: 22 Sleeve: 25 3/4 (+1 1/2) Shoulder: 20 1/4 Length: 32 1/2 Founded in 1938, Scabal still produces its cloth at its traditional mill in Huddersfield, Yorkshire, the center of England's wool trade since the sixteenth century. Although Scabal's business is focused on cloth they opened a shop on Savile Row (at No. 12) in 1972. Although they are in most respects an utterly traditional British clothier Scabal have always been ready to experiment--indeed, they are known as being one of the more eccentric denizens of the Row. They collaborated, for example, with Salvador Dali in 1971 to produce a series of 12 pictures of his surrealist vision of 21st Century clothing... which no doubt caused considerable anxiety in places like Huntsman and Norton when Scabal moved to the Row just a year later! Scabal also has links to Hollywood; Vito Corleone's tuxedo in *The Godfather* was from Scabal, as were almost all of Robert De Niro's suits in *Casino*. This jacket thus represents a rare opportunity to acquire a light summer blazer from one of the most illustrious British tailoring houses. The cloth of this jacket is, as you would expect, wonderful. Cut from a lightweight Scabal Super 100s cloth with a beautifully soft hand (which Scabal attribute to the soft Yorkshire water used in their mill) this is wonderful light Navy blue. The jacket is fully canvassed and fully lined in Scabal's signature lining. Cut as a contemporary two-button blazer with darting, this has a twin vent--as you'd expect from a Savile Row jacket--and four button cuffs. It has pick stitching throughout. It was, of course, Made in England. This does have two small flaws. There is some minor staining to the lining, as shown; likely this is from a spill when the jacket was off and turned lining-out. There is also a very very small mark by the cuff; I only noticed this when doing close-up pictures, so it's very hard to see! But, because of these marks this jacket is in Very Good condition, and so is a bargain at just $29, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA. 2) LAND ROVER GEAR TWEED JACKET in BEAUTIFUL SPRING GREEN WITH OVERCHECKING! Made in Canada. Perfect for Spring, Summer, and early Fall! Tagged 41R. Measurements: Chest: 22 Sleeve: 25 1/4 (+1 1/2) Shoulder: 19 1/2 Length: 30 1/2 Capitalizing on the current love of all things "heritage" Land Rover has collaborated with several clothing manufacturers to produce "Land Rover Gear"--a Land-Rover themed twist of classic clothing. While most of these products were utterly forgettable, some stood out as Land Rover occasionally had the sense to collaborate with real clothing companies, rather than those that just placed logos on sweatshirts and fleeces. One of the most notable of these collaborations was that Land Rover had with Barbour. While this isn't a Barbour x Land Rover tweed, it IS an extremely well-made and beautiful jacket, Made in Canada. True to its British heritage by way of Land Rover this is inspired by a traditional hacking jacket, with a three button front, darts, and a wonderful moss-green base with (extremely!) subtle overchecking in Royal Blue, cream, and chestnut. Is is unvented, fully canvassed, and fully lined, with four button cuffs. It is in absolutely excellent condition; the two exterior pockets are still basted shut! Despite being made for Land Rover this is a *real* tweed jacket, and so is a bargain at just $35, or offer, boxed, shipped, and insured in the USA. PS: If you're interested in Land Rovers, one of the best defences of them as city vehicles is given in Iain Banks' novel *Dead Air*!
