    1) RARE Harris Tweed 3/2 sack from Harry Ballot of Princeton

    Although Harris tweed is one of the staple fabrics of the Ivy wardrobe it is surprisingly rarely used to make that other Ivy staple, the 3/2 sack..... and so I'm very pleased to offer this surprisingly rare 3/2 sack in Harris tweed from Harry Ballot of Princeton, one of the Big Five Ivy clothiers of the Golden Age! The tweed of this lovely jacket is wonderful--a light smoke grey with vertical striping of russet and sky blue, in classic Harris style. This jacket is half-canvassed and half-lined with a single center vent. It has theee button cuffs, and all of the buttons are the traditional leather-covered, metal-shanked football buttons that go so well with Harris tweed. It has very natural shoulders. This was Made in the USA, and is in excellent condition.

    Asking just $45, or offer.

    Measurements:


    Chest: 21 1/8
    Sleeve: 25 1/4 (+1)
    Shoulder: 17 5/8
    Length: 30

    2) MADE IN ENGLAND Classic Herringbone Harris Tweed

    A grey herringbone Harris tweed jacket should be the backbone of every classic wardrobe, and this is a beautiful example, with Royal Blue flecks heathered into the herringbone --so if this is your size, grab it! A contemporary two button front jacket with very subtle darts, this lovely jacket was clearly Made in England, the telltale signs being the single button cuffs (which only appear on very traditional British tweeds) and the placement of the interior content label in the left-hand interior seam. This lovely jacket has a single center vent; it appears to be half-canvassed, and is fully lined. This jacket is in absolutely excellent condition; it is quite possibly unworn.

    Asking just $45, or offer.

    Measurements:


    Chest: 21 1/4
    Sleeve: 25 (+1 3/4)
    Shoulder: 18 1/4
    Length: 29

    3) The English Shop of Princeton CLASSIC 3/2 sack navy blazer.

    This is wonderful! A classic 3/2 sack navy blazer from The English Shop of Princeton, one of the Big Five Ivy clothiers of Princeton's Golden Age. Although there is no fabric content listed this is clearly a jacket intended for Spring or Summer use, being cut from lighter-weight wool. It is half-canvassed and half-lined, and has the unusual feature of complementary pale blue lining in the sleeves. It has two button cuffs and a single vent. It also has flapped patch pockets, and very natural shoulders. It is in Very Good/Excellent condition; it does have some wear to the second buttonhole, and a very small smudge just under the top button on the right-hand sleeve, that can't really be seen when worn.

    Asking just $39, or offer.

    Measurements:


    Chest: 22 1/2
    Sleeve: 24 1/2 (+1 1/2)
    Shoulder: 18 1/2
    Length: 30 1/2

    4) WONDERFUL Comfortable Vintage Donegal tweed!


    This is a truly lovely jacket, ready to become a faithful companion on many long walks with the dogs, quick trips to the store, and everything in between! This is the type of casual tweed that you'd wish you could wear to the office as it's so comfortable, that your wife will claim to hate but secretly love, and that, in twenty years' time, you'll spend far more than it's worth on repairs as you just can't bear to see it go.

    Made in Ireland, this is cut from a style of Donegal tweed that is now rarely seen; a roughwoven very broad herringbone, casually flecked with large tufts and knots of cream, slate blue, and stone grey. The colourway is also from the past, with the herringbone being a dark bark brown and petrol blue--utterly 1960s. The jacket itself has a lovely narrow lapel, three button cuffs, and a two buton front with darts--essential for a cloth this thick and roughewn. It is fully lined and has a single center vent.

    This jacket does have a few minor issues--although in a tweed this rough these are truly patina rather than flaws. There's a small professional patch to the lining (possibly repairing a briar snag when Snipe went after a rabbit in Co. Sligo in 1968), and there's the very hint of a fray at the leading edge of the right-hand cuff--although this won't pose problems for at least five years. The buttons have wear and patina, and the jacket could use a dry-clean to freshen it up. As such, it's in Good/Very Good condition, and so is just $35, or offer.... a BARGAIN for a jacket you'll come to love and wear hundreds of times over the next few decades!

    Measurements:

    Chest: 22 3/4
    Sleeve: 24 (+1 1/2)
    Shoulder: 20 1/4
    Length: 29 1/2

    5) FULL CANVAS Double-Breasted Peak Lapel Dark Navy Blazer from Ede & Ravenscroft of England, founded in 1689.

    This is absolutely wonderful! Made by Ede & Ravenscroft, founded in 1689 and the premier robemakers in England, purveyors of robes to the academy and the judiciary, this beautiful, formal double-breasted blazer in dark navy is fully canvassed and fully lined. Complete with formal peak lapels, this jacket has pick stitching throughout. It also features finished four button cuffs and twin vents. It has three front buttons on the right, and two on the left; close inspection reveals that there was never a third on the left, but if this bothers youy, don't despair--the original spare button is included on the interior of the jacket.

    6) Classic Glen Plaid Jacket

    A lovely, classic black and grey glen plaid with absolutely BEAUTIFUL overchecking in forest green, golden wheat, russet, and sky blue, this is cut from wool that's so soft it feels like camelhair. This is a contemporary two button front jacket with subtle darts. It is half-canvassed and fully lined, and is unvented; it appears that the vent has been professionally closed. It has three button cuffs; the buttons are leather-covered, metal-shanked "football" buttons. This was Union made in the USA, and is in excellent condition.

    7) CLASSIC Southwick for Paul Stuart flannel Navy Blazer

    This is absolutely beautiful! Cut from a lovely medium-weight flannel with a wonderful hand and drape this is a contemporary two button front jacket with subtle darting. It is fully canvassed and half-lined. It has four button cuffs, and all of the buttons are hollow brass from Waterbury of Conn., the company that provided the buttons that adorned the uniforms of both Grant and Lee during the Civil War. This jacket is beautifully cut, as befits a Southwick made expressly for Paul Stuart, and has a single center vent. It was, of course, Union made in the USA and, apart from some minor wrinkling in the elbows, which will be eliminated by pressing, this is in excellent condition.

    8) GRAIL! Absolutely BEAUTIFUL Brooks Brothers "Brookstweed" 3/2 sack with overchecking and flecking. PATCH POCKETS!

    Brooks Brothers' "Brookstweed" line was started in 1963, and continued for just over two decades. Brookstweed jackets have become increasingly sought after as classic icons of Ivy Style, and this one is no exception. Cut as a 3/2 sack with a beautifully fluid lapel roll the tweed that this jacket is cut from is almost certainly Scottish. It has a beautiful patterning, being a complex weave of broad broekn bone herringbone with overchecking. The colourway is also both subtle and complex; the base broken bone is in classic charcoal, while the subtle overchecking is in bracken and Royal Blue. The overchecking is then complemented by subtle flecking in chestnut, forest green, and the occasional berry red.

    This is a truly beautiful jacket!

    This jacket also features all of the Ivy desiderata. As well as being a 3/2 sack it also features flapped patch pockets and a single lapped seam down the center of the back. It has two button cuffs and a single center vent. It is also fully canvassed and half-lined. The interior pockets have reinforced edges to maintain their shape, and the original locker look is intact. This was, of course Union made in the USA,a nd is in absolutely excellent condition.

    Asking just $65, or offer for this truly GRAIL jacket.
