    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.

    [​IMG]


    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!

    [​IMG]


    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*!

    3) WONDERFUL BROOKS BROTHERS SPRING-SUMMER TARTAN JACKET!

    [​IMG]


    Made in the USA, and absolutely beautiful!

    Tagged 43L, this measures:

    Chest: 21 1/2
    Sleeve: 26 1/2 (1)
    Shoulder: 19 7/8
    Length: 32 3/4

    This is absolutely beautiful! Although there is no fabric content listed this is clearly a very high-quality cotton; light enough to be comfortable, yet heavy enough to be suitable or a jacket. And the tartan is wonderful--greens, dusk-blues, and whites set of with pale yellow striping, this is a classic Scottish tartan very similar to Dress Gordon.

    The jacket is cut as a contemporary two button jacket with very subtle darts. It is half-canvassed and fully lined in a complementary dark blue lining. It has three button cuffs and a single center vent. It was Made in the USA, and apart from a VERY small brown mark on the upper lapel--which I have only just noticed!--is in absolutely excellent condition!

    Asking just $39 or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA. International inquiries welcome-please PM with interest and offers!

    4) MADE IN ITALY VALENTINO JACKET

    [​IMG]


    Lovely twill cloth, perfect for Spring and Summer!

    Tagged 42L. Measurements:

    Chest: 22 1/8
    Sleeve: 26 1/2 (+2)
    Shoulder: 19 1/4
    Length: 32 1/4

    A lovely jacket for Spring and Summer, moving into early Fall, this lovely wool-blend (91% wool, 9% polymide) twill Valentino was Made in Italy, and has all the insouciance you'd thus expect. Cut as a contemporary two button model with darting, this is unvented in Flusser approved style. It features faux button holes with kissing buttons, is half-canvassed, and fully lined.

    It does have a very small hole near the hem at the rear, and so is in Very Good condition only--hence just $25, or offer, boxed, shipped, and insured in the USA!

    5) VINTAGE BROOKS BROTHERS AUTHENTIC INDIAN MADRAS JACKET!

    [​IMG]

    Absolutely beautiful--an Ivy summer classic!

    Tagged 44. Likely c. 42. Measurements:

    Chest: 21 1/2
    Sleeve: 23 3/4 (+1 1/2)
    Shoulder: 18 1/8
    Length: 30

    This jacket is absolutely gorgeous! Cut from beautiful, gossamer-light authentic Indian Madras in a wonderfully bold, classic plaid in blues, turquoise, and coral pink, this is cut as a contemporary two-button jacket with subtle darts.

    It was likely made in the 1980s for Brooks Brothers' "Brooksgate" line--that which was aimed at the younger market, with the intent that this would be the "gate" into a lifelong relationship with Brooks Brothers. This line was cut slimmer than Brooks' usual offerings, and so while this is tagged 44 it would best suit a contemporary 42.

    The jacket has a single center vent and three button cuffs. It has very natural shoulders, and, despite being both half-lined and half-canvassed, is wonderfully lightweight.

    It was, of course, Union Made in the USA, and apart from some minor loose stitching in the lining this is in excellent condition.

    Asking just $45, or offer, boxed, shipped, and insured in the USA.

    Perfect for the Ivy summer!

    Chest: 22 3/4
    Sleeve: 25 (+1 3/4)
    Shoulder: 18 3/4
    Length: 30 1/4

    This is absolutely beautiful!

    Made by Huntington--one of the great classic American clothiers--this is cut as a high-roll 3/2 sack jacket from beautiful goassmer-light Madras in a lovely and subdued blend of creams, taupes, blues, and sepia red.

    The jacket is fully lined and half-canvassed, and features two button cuffs as well as a single center vent. It has a very small brown mark by the edge of one cuff that blends into the pattern, and a couple of very minor smudges, as shown, but otherwise is in excellent condition.

    It was, of course, Made in the USA.

    Asking just $35, or offer, boxed, shipped, and insured in the USA.

    9, 10, 11) THREE NWOT SEERSUCKER JACKETS!

    [​IMG]


    MADE IN THE USA. In "peaches and cream" stripe.

    Jacket 9: c.46, 48
    Jacket 10: c.40, 42
    Jacket 11: c. 44, 46

    Measurements:

    Jacket 9:

    Chest: 24
    Sleeve: 25 1/8 (+1 3/4)
    Shoulder: 20 3/4
    Length: 29 3/4

    Jacket 10:

    Chest: 21 1/4
    Sleeve: 25 5/8 (+2 )
    Shoulder: 19
    Length: 30 1/2

    Jacket 11:

    Chest: 23
    Sleeve: 29 1/2 (+2) (NOT a typo!)
    Shoulder: 20
    Length: 33 1/2

    The word "seersucker" comes from the Persian expression, shroshakarshir, literally "milk and sugar". This refers to the alternating smoothness and roughness of the ridged cloth producing something perfect for the heat--just as the smoothness of milk and the roughness of sugar, combine to produce delectable and refreshing Persian confections.

    Seersucker is the quintessential Ivy summer fabric. I'm thus delighted to be able to offer not one but three lovely seersucker jackets in "peaches and cream" candy stripes--a nice departure from the usual blue and cream.

    These jackets are cut as contemporary two button jackets with darts and a single center vent; they are fully lined in a antique ivory lining that complements the peach and cream striping of the exterior shell. Although there is no fabric content listed these are clearly cotton, and are properly woven as seersucker, with the fabric's stripes following the traditional ridged nature of the weave.

    The jackets have four button cuffs, and were all Made in the USA.

    They are all New, Without Tags, and so are all in excellent condition; the lower pockets are all basted shut.

    Asking just $35, or offer, each, boxed and shipped in the USA.

    12) BROOKS BROTHERS SUMMER JACKET! MADE IN THE USA.

    [​IMG]


    Almost certainly a silk-linen blend!

    Tagged 46R. Measurements:

    Chest: 24
    Sleeve: 24 (+2)
    Shoulder: 20 1/2
    Length: 32

    A lovely, classic jacket from Brooks Brothers this is almost certainly cut from cloth that's a blend of silk and linen; although there's no fabric content listed the occasional nubs indicate silk, and the hand indicates linen!

    The colourway and patterning of this jacket are lovely; a slate-blue miniature herringbone accented with subtle atomic flecking as the base, with a subtle windowpane overcheck in summer maize.

    The jacket is cut as a contemporary two button model with darting and a single center vent; it is fully lined and half-canvassed. It has four button cuffs and was Union Made in the USA.

    Apart from a smudge in the lining at the bottom left it is in excellent condition--although please note that it has the occasional nub and thread bunch that is standard with silk, and silk blends!

    Asking just $35, or offer, boxed, shipped, and insured in the USA!

    13) WONDERFUL AND RARE! 3/2 SUMMER COTTON JACKET IN BLACKWATCH TARTAN.

    [​IMG]


    Perfect for the Summer... or for the Winter holiday season in a hot climate! [​IMG]:)

    Tagged 40L. Measurements:

    Chest: 21 1/2
    Sleeve: 24 3/4 (+1 3/4)
    Shoulder: 18 3/4
    Length: 32 1/2

    This is absolutely wonderful--and extremely rare, as Blackwatch usually only appears in wool. (There's no fabric content, but this is clearly cut from heavier cotton.) This would be a perfect jacket for the summer--especially for an evening event--and would also be a great Winter holiday jacket for someone who lives in a warm climate and who would prefer not to wear heavyweight wool to a holiday event!

    Cut as a 3/2 jacket with a lovely lapel roll this is subtly darted. It has flapped front pockets and three button cuffs, and a single center vent. It is 1/4 lined, and so you can see how well-made this jacket is from the attention to detail shown in its construction.

    This jacket was Made in the USA, and while it could use a dry clean to freshen it up (it's slightly dusty from storage!) it's in excellent condition.

    Asking just $45, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA.

    14) BEAUTIFUL PAUL STUART SUMMER JACKET IN LINEN AND WOOL.

    [​IMG]


    Made in Canada

    Tagged 43R. Measurements:

    Chest: 22 1/8
    Sleeve: 24 1/2 (1 1/2)
    Shoulder: 20
    Length: 30 1/4

    This is lovely!

    Made in Canada, this is Paul Stuart's "Stuart" model jacket; a contemporary two-button jacket with darting, a single center vent, and a four button cuffs. It is half-canvassed and fully lined.

    It is cut from a blend of 55% wool and 45% linen.

    It is in absolutely excellent condition--it still has its original packet of spare buttons!

    The original retail on this was around $1,400.. so how about just $45, boxed, shipped, and insured in the USA? [​IMG]

    15) ALEX CANNON SUMMER JACKET

    [​IMG]


    c. 44. Measurements:

    Chest: 22 3/4
    Sleeve: 24 1/4 (+2)
    Shoulder: 20
    Length: 31

    Made in Canada, this is a lovely lightweight summer jacket. Although there is no fabric content available this is likely a wool-silk blend. The colourway and patterning are lovely--a light slate-blue miniature broken bone herringbone base that looks almost like sharkskin with a very subtle overcheck in baby blue and golden wheat. This is perfect for Spring and Summer!

    The jacket is cut as a British-inspired three button jacket with darting. It has a twin center vent--true to its British heritage--and four button cuffs. It features pick stitching in the lining. It is fully lined, and is in absolutely excellent condition.

    Asking just $35, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA.
