    2) BEAUTIFUL Bullock & Jones Navy Jacket with Russet-Red Overchecking!


    Bullock & Jones was founded in San Francisco in 1853 to serve the tailoring needs of miners who'd struck it rich in the Gold Ruse of '49. From the start they emphasized exceptional tailoring and luxury fabrics, a tradition they continued under their closure in 2001... and then they re-opening in 2005, and then their second closure in 2007. They now exist as an online presence only, which is a great shame as their staff were experts in their fields, and exceptionally courteous.

    This lovely jacket harkens back to the glory days of Bullock & Jones, although it is likely to be of more recent vintage that pre-2000. Cut from sturdy and soft 90s worsted wool this is a contemporary two-button model with subtle darts. The cloth has a lovely hand and drape and a wonderful colourway, being an elegant grey birdseye weave with russet-red overchecking. It is half-canvassed and fully lined, and has a single center vent and four button cuffs. It was Union Made in the USA, and is in absolutely excellent condition--it still has the original packet of spare buttons with it!

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

    Tagged 46R, this measures:


    Chest: 22 1/4
    Sleeve: 23 1/2 (+2 1/2)
    Shoulder: 20
    Length: 31 1/4

    3) WONDERFUL Vintage Half-Norfolk in cord by OLD SCHOOL Abercrombie & Fitch


    Made by Abercrombie & Fitch back when it was a serious outdoors outfitters--they outfitted Teddy Roosevelt for his hunting expeditions, Charles Lindbergh for flying, and sold Hemingway the gun he used to kill himself--this is a lovely and very rare Half-Norfolk Jacket in wide-wale cord.

    As with all products from the old-school Abercrombie & Fitch this jacket is extremely well-made, and designed fro use in the field, not just to look good in the office. As with all classic Half-Norfolk jackets this features a stitched half-belt at the back. The back above the belt features a box pleat for ease of movement--and more elegant lines than a biswing back when not needed for use--and the shoulders feature scalloped yoke. Below the half-belt is a single center vent.

    True to its American roots this is cut as a true 3/2 sack jacket. It features four deep flapped bellows pockets on the front, all of which feature box pleats so that they can expand to accept shells, knives, or very small game animals. The buttons are all genuine shotshell buttons (the front buttons are from Remington 12 gauge shells, the cuff buttons from smaller gauges) and are likely original to the jacket. (Genuine shotshell buttons are becoming increasingly rare, despite their long tenure as being staples of the sporting Ivy wardrobe.) The pocket seams are all lapped for extra strength. The right hand lower front pocket features an internal ticket pocket.

    The jacket is half-canvassed and fully lined. The top half of the lining appears to be satin, chosen for ease of movement on and off. The bottom half appears to be a heavyweight cotton in a classic tartan pattern; this also appears under the flaps of the three front pockets.

    This jacket was Made in the USA by Gordon of Philadelphia--this is signified by the rooster emblem on the locker loop. It carries the classic vintage Abercrombie & Fitch green and black label.

    The cord of this jacket has some overall darkening and discolouration from age, but this simply gives it patina and adds to its appeal. This is a REAL hunting Half-Norfolk, not a costume. However, it could use a dry clean and a press to freshen it up, and so with the discolorartion this is in Very Good condition. As such, this is an absolute bargain at just $65, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA.

    Measurements:

    Chest: 20 1/2
    Sleeve: 24 3/4 (+1 3/4)
    Shoulder: 18
    Length: 30 1/2

    4) ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS! Norman Hilton 3/2 sack in brown and cream herringbone tweed, with all of the Ivy desiderata!

    This is absolutely wonderful! Made by Norman Hilton--the man who was largely responsible for refining and popularizing Ivy Style--this jacket has all of the features that you'd want in a tweed. Cut from classic brown and cream herringbone tweed that was expressly woven for Normal Hilton this is a 3/2 sack with a beautifully fluid lapel roll. It is half-canvassed and half-lined, and features two button cuffs. All of the buttons are made from natural horn. The seams along the sleeves and down the center back are all lapped, and it features a hooked center vent.

    This was Union made in the USA, and is in absolutely excellent condition--although the interior label has been carefully and professionally removed.

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

    5) BEAUTIFUL English Cashmere Twill Blazer!

    Baron of Piccadilly used to be well-known for being the only store in Britain that routinely offered discounts of Barbour clothing. Not surprisingly, as well as being a Barbour stockist Baron also stocked many other wonderful items of clothing. This beautiful cashmere blazer is a good example. Likely dating from the early 1980s the cashmere of this jacket is seriously thick and soft, not the mall cashmere that's so widespread now. The cloth was loomed in Huddersfield, England, and is a wonderful twill weave.

    The jacket does full justice to the cloth. Cut as a contemporary two button model with subtle darting and beautifully narrow lapels this has a single center vent and three button cuffs. It is fully canvassed, and fully lined, and was Made in England. It carries the classic Baron label. It is in excellent condition, and a bargain at just $65, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA--this is a steal for an English cashmere blazer of this quality!

    Measurements:

    Chest: 19 7/8
    Sleeve: 25 1/2 (+1 3/4)
    Shoulder: 17 1/2
    Length: 30

It features Brooks Brothers' signature "Dead Sheep" brass stamped buttons, made by Waterbury of Connecticut. It appears to be fully canvassed and it is fully lined.

    9) BEAUTIFUL Camelhair 3/2 sack
    Terrific Lining!

    Jos. A. Banks used to be a worthy rival to Brooks and Press, and this lovely camelhair 3/2 sack shows why.... And not the least because of its wonderfully whimsical lining, patterned with camels!

    This is from the old-school Jos. A. Banks, back when it produced solidly made traditional clothing, comparable to Brooks' old "346" and "Makers" lines. Cut from beautifully soft camelhair this jacket is cut as a classic 3/2 sack with a lovely lapel roll. It is half-canvassed and half-lined, and features the desirable and increasingly rare flapped patch pockets--here, with lapped seams. It has two button cuffs; the buttons are the classic leather-covered metal-shanked football buttons. It has a single center vent and lovely natural shoulders.

    This was Union made in the USA, and is in absolutely excellent condition.

    Asking just $45, or offer.

    10) BEAUTIFUL Harris Tweed from H.A. & E. Smith of Bermuda!

    H.A. & E. Smith was established on Bermuda in 1889. Together with Trimingham's and The English Sports Shop it was the third main upscale clothing store on Bermuda, boasting at one time that it had the widest selection of cashmere sweaters anywhere in the Western hemisphere.

    Smith's closed in 2001, but you can still find examples of its wares that show clearly why it so famous for the quality of its clothing--and this Harris Tweed jacket is one example.

    Made in England for Smith's, this jacket is cut from an absolutely beautiful and extremely rare bold plaid Harris Tweed in a wonderful medly of autumnal brackens, russets, chestnut browns and dark moss green. Cut as a contemporary two button front jacket it has subtle darts and the utterly correct and traditional British single button cuff. The buttons are, of course, metal shanked and leather covered football buttons. This has a single center vent, is fully canvassed, and fully lined. It also carries the classic 1960s label announcing that this is "All Wool" and "Made in England" , as well as the classic Harris Tweed orb label and a wonderful vintage Smith's label.

    I'm conservative in rating vintage items, so this is in very Good/Excellent condition--and is absolutely beautiful!

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

    11) CLASSIC Harris Tweed Jacket from DiTorio's of Pennington, NJ

    This was originally sold by DiTorio's of Pennington, NJ--an extremely trad. clothier, now long gone, that catered to the more rurally inclined trads of neighbouring Princeton. Pennington itself is a beautiful pre-Revolutionary War small town; the cemetery on Main Street is bounded by a wall that British troops exercised their horses over in 1775, and Frederick Forsyth set the start of his novel Avenger in Pennington, as embodying classic small town America.

    This jacket embodies the wares that were offered by DiTorio's. Cut from a very sturdy, heavier-weight Harris Tweed of a heft that gave Harris its worldwide reputation and is now increasingly rare, this is a lovely classic grey herringbone that is accented with classic Harris tweed vertical stripes in chestnut brown and sky blue. It appears to be half-canvassed, and it is half-lined. It features a single center vent and three button cuffs. It was Made in the USA, and is in absolutely excellent condition--the top breast pocket is still basted shut!

    Asking just $39, or offer.

    15) WONDERFUL Solid Mustard Harris Tweed Jacket, Made in England for Archie Brown, Bermuda

    Archie Brown, with Trimingham's, Smith's, and The English Sports Shop, was a Bermudian institution until its closure, being famous both for its offerings of upscale British clothing and also for the bagpiper who played in the store every day at noon.

    This marvellous jacket shows just why Brown's was so famous. Likely dating from the early 1960s this beauty was Made in England. It has the traditional British three button front and the high lapels, harking back to its hacking jacket heritage. The Harris Tweed that it is cut from is the traditional heavyweight Harris with the rather rough and slightly hairy hand--just what you'd want in a tweed of this calibre! It is also an extremely rare solid colour tweed--the colour of English mustard! It is fully canvassed and fully lined. It is unvented, and has four button cuffs. All of the original buttons are intact, and all are the traditional leather-covered metal-shanked football buttons. This also carries a full set of lovely vintage labels. This does have one or two small blemishes on the tweed, as shown, and so this is in Very Good condition.

    This is a rare opportunity to acquire a lovely vintage jacket from a renowned retailer at a very good price indeed! Asking just $40, or offer.
