    Tagged a 40, this measures:

    Chest: 20 1/4
    Sleeve: 26 1/2 (+1 1/2)
    Shoulder: 19 1/2
    Length: 32 1/2

    Founded in San Francisco in 1853 to provide clothing to persons made newly rich by the Gold Rush, Bullock & Jones became established as one of the premier purveyors of traditional clothing in San Francisco. They closed their signature Union Square store in 2002, and now only have an online presence.

    This jacket shows why they were so well-liked for the century and a half that they operated in person. Cut from a lovely lightweight gingham-esque cloth that's a blend of mainly cotton, lycra, and polymide that feels to the touch to be a seersucker-type fabric. The patterning and colouring is lovely; a conservative gingham-esque blend of black, grey, and cream.

    The jacket is a contemporary two button model; it is half-canvassed and fully lined. It has a single center vent, four button cuffs, and was, of course, Made in the USA. It is in excellent condition.

    Asking just $35, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA. International offers welcome, with shipping at reduced cost.

    3) VINTAGE 1950s/1960s PURE SILK TAILORED JACKET FROM DAKS!

    [​IMG]


    Made in England and absolutely GORGEOUS!

    Tagged 40R. Measurements:

    Chest: 21
    Sleeve: 22 1/2 (+1 1/2)
    Shoulder: 18
    Length: 29 1/4

    This gem of a jacket shows how wonderful DAKS and Simpson's clothing was!

    Likely dating from the late 1950s or early 1960s, this beautiful jacket is cut from pure silk, and the quality of the fabric is superb--beautifully soft and uniform in appearence, with just a hint of slubbiness to reveal its origins. The colour is a wonderful--my pictures really don't do it justice at all. Although the "full length" shots are closest, the colour is much richer than they show.

    It has a traditionally British three button front with high lapels and darting; it also has the traditional British single button sleeves, and three patch pockets. It is absolutely beautifully cut, and is half canvassed and half lined.

    It was Made in England.

    At first sight it appears to be in excellent condition. However, close inspection reveals that it is starting to fray at the cuffs and the hem--not unexpected for a pure silk jackets that's over half a century old. However, these frays are only JUST starting, and so could easily be repaired through darning.

    Given these, however, this jacket is in Good/Very Good condition--this is a conservative estimate!--and so is a bargain at just $45, or offer, boxed, shipped, and insured in the USA.... Making this perhaps the only time you'll have the opportunity to acquire a vintage 1950s silk jacket tailored by DAKS!

    4) UTTERLY IVY! SUMMER JACKET FROM OAKLOOM CLOTHES, makers for Paul Stuart.

    [​IMG]


    A wonderful jacket (likely silk and linen) in pale pink herringbone with subtle striping.

    c. 40. Measurements:

    Chest: 20 3/4
    Sleeve: 22 3/4 (+2 1/4)
    Shoulder: 18
    Length: 30 1/2

    Oakloom Clothes had an unusual business model--they declined to advertise, considering this to be "vulgar", and relied on the quality of their clothing to speak for itself. No doubt this reticence kept Oakloom from the success that it deserved, for the quality of their clothing was first-rate. They made clothes for Paul Stuart, Bullock & Jones of San Francisco, and Maus and Hoffman in Palm Beach, FL. They specialized in classic, Ivy Style clothing, and this was continued when they were bought out in 1995 by Hartz & Co who wanted to use them as an entry into "the better part of the upper market".

    This jacket shows just why Oakloom were so beloved by the few familiar with their clothing. This jacket is cut from a wonderful pale pink and cream herringbone cloth that's likely a blend of linen and silk. The herringbone is accented with vertical stripes in pale green, blue, and sunset gold. The jacket is cut as a contemporary two button jacket with subtle darts. It is half-canvassed and fully lined in cream.

    It has a single center vent. Union made in the USA, this is in excellent condition.

    Asking just $35, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA. International inquiries welcome!

    5) BEAUTIFUL SILK-WOOL SUMMER JACKET BY CORBIN

    [​IMG]


    c. 40, 42. Measurements:

    Chest: 20 3/4
    Sleeve: 23 (+2)
    Shoulder: 17 3/4
    Length: 28 3/4

    This lovely jacket shows just why Corbin were so beloved by the Ivy set.

    Although there is no fabric content listed this is cut from a wonderfully slubby wool-silk blend that's perfect for summer. A beautiful summer plaid closely resembling a Glen Plaid, this has a base of cream and primary checking in slate grey, with beautiful overchecking in sepia rose pink and seafoam blue.

    Originally sold by the up-scale New Jersey store MacHugh's (think Princeton as its clientele, not the Shore!), this is cut as a contemporary two button jacket with very subtle darts. It is half-canvassed and fully lined and has three button cuffs. It has, of course, very natural shoulders.

    It was, of course, Union Made in the USA and, apart from a single watermark in the lining, as shown, is in excellent condition.

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

    6) ANGLOPHILE PAUL STUART JACKET!

    [​IMG]


    Ticket pocket, twin vent, overchecking!

    Tagged 41R, this measures:

    Chest: 21.5
    Sleeve: 24 3/4 (+1 1/2)
    Shoulder: 18 1/2
    length: 31 1/2

    Paul Stuart was founded in New York in 1938 by Ralph Oztrove, who named it after his son, Paul Stuart Ostrove. From the start Ralph Ostrove intended the company to specialize in classic haberdashery with uncompromising quality--and in this he most certainly succeeded!

    This is a lovely example of Paul Stuart's recent wares. Cut from a beautifully lightweight woolen worsted in miniature herringbone, this lovely jacket features a complementary windowpane overcheck in the greenish-brown of sapling bark, and a rich bracken russet.

    The cloth is complemented by the classic Anglophilia cut of this jacket; it has a two button front, darting, a twin rear vent, and a fully functional ticket pocket. Naturally, this jacket comes complete with a rear interior strap at the back to endure that the rear vent flaps remain properly closed.

    This jacket is fully canvassed, and fully lined. It has four button cuffs, and was Made in Canada.

    It is in excellent condition, except for a couple of tiny speckles on the lapel, as shown, which might well be removable by dry cleaning. Given this minor mar this jacket is an absolute bargain at just $35, or offer, boxed, shipped, and insured in the USA!

    7) SLUBBY SILK JACKET FROM THE HARVARD COOP!

    [​IMG]


    A jacket with a wonderful Ivy provenance!

    Tagged 42R, this measures:

    Chest: 20 3/4
    Sleeve: 25 1/4 (+1 1/2)
    Shoulder: 18 3/4
    Length: 30 1/2

    Cut as a regular two button jacket with subtle darting, the cloth of this jacket is striking. Although there is no fabric content listed it is clearly pure slubby silk that's been woven in a classic Donegal tweed patterning and pepper-and-salt colourway.

    The jacket is half-canvassed and fully lined, and has a single center vent. It has four button cuffs, and all of the buttons are a lovely rich cream to complement the Donegal-esque fabric.

    This jacket was Union Made in the USA. It is in excellent condition, except for two small flaws; it has some water staining to the lining, and one of the buttons on the right-hand sleeve is folded in half! This could be an easy fix--just convert the American cuffs to three button cuffs, rather than four, and you've solved this issue and acquired a spare button! (I can arrange for this minor alteration for a small fee if you wish.)

    Asking just $39, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA!

    8) STUNNING! MTM Silk-Linen Summer jacket by Michael Duru Tailors.

    [​IMG]

    c. 44, 46. Measurements:

    Chest: 23
    Sleeve: 24 1/2 (+2)
    Shoulder: 19
    Length: 31 1/2

    Michael Duru is a third-generation tailor located in Shrewsbury, New Jersey, who specializes in MTM clothing featuring lots of handwork.

    This jacket is a lovely example of his craft. Although there is no fabric content listed this is clearly a luxurious blend of silk and linen, in a wonderfully textured weave in summery baby blue. The jacket is cut as a standard two button model with darting. It features a LOT of handwork, with pick stitching on the lapels and placket, throughout the lining, and on the pocket flaps. Naturally, the four button cuffs feature working surgeon's buttons, and all of the buttonholes are hand-sewn.

    The lining is absolutely wonderful--a kaleidoscope whirl of silvery-blue paisley that perfectly complements the soft blue exterior. It is unvented.

    This jacket is fully lined, and fully canvassed. It was, of course, Made in New Jersey!

    Apart from a single loose thread on the lapel (easily fixed!) it is in excellent condition, being virtually unworn. The original owner (a real estate magnate) received this jacket in May 2014 (aged 85), and unfortunately died in November 2014, having worn this summer jacket only a handful of times. (The front breast pocket is still basted shut.)

    This thus represents a rare opportunity to acquire a fantastic jacket at a very low price.... as I'm asking just $45, OR OFFER, boxed, shipped, and insured in the USA! International inquires welcome, with reduced shipping available!

    11) VINTAGE LANGROCK JACKET!

    [​IMG]


    An extremely rare two-button, darted jacket... sold by Langrock of Princeton!

    c. 42, 44. Measurements:

    Chest: 22
    Sleeve: 25 (+2)
    Shoulder: 18 3/4
    Length: 30 3/4

    It's sometimes claimed that the demise of Langrock of Princeton--possibly THE Ivy Style clothier--was owed to its refusal to stock anything but 3/2 sack jackets.

    THIS jacket proves that claim to be mistaken... For this Langrock jacket is cut as a contemporary two button jacket with darting!

    Yet while the cut of this jacket might be a departure from Langrock's usual Ivy Style there's no departure from Langrock's usual quality. Cut from a mid-weight wool gabardine this is fully canvassed and half-lined. It has a single center vent and three buttons cuffs--and the right-hand lower pocket is still basted shut!

    This was Union Made in the USA likely between 1968 and 1976.

    It has two small flaws; a minor collar creep, and a small repair to the vent at the rear. Otherwise, this is in excellent condition, and so is in Very Good/Excellent condition overall.

    Asking just $45, or offer, boxed, shipped, and insured in the USA for a VERY rare Langrock indeed!

    12) PURE CASHMERE ARMANI JACKET

    [​IMG]


    Made in Italy!

    Tagged 38. Measurements:

    Chest: 20 1/2
    Sleeve: 24 (+1 1/2)
    Shoulder: 18 1/2
    Length: 29 3/8

    Although founded in 1975 Armani's heyday was undoubtedly the decade that spanned the late 1980s to the early 1990s. In part, this was because the new prosperity of those years enabled people to afford Armani... and in part it was because of the success of films such as *The Untouchables* which featured gorgeous 1920's-inspired clothing designed by Armani, and intended (by Armani!) to showcase the beauty of his signature flowing silhouette. It didn't hurt that the 1920s-style overcoats that were the *real* stars of the show swirled dramatically when their wearers opened them rapidly to deploy the shotguns they'd concealed underneath!

    This jacket was made quite a bit later than Armani's heyday... But with its high lapels, three-button front, and autumnal brown colouring it has more than a hint of Armani's vision of the Prohibition era. Cut from pure cashmere, this is wonderfully soft and luxurious, with a lovely hand and drape.

    Made it Italy, this is half-canvassed and fully lined. It is unvented, in Flusser--approved style, and has jetted pockets at the front. It also features three button cuffs with kissing buttons.

    It is in absolutely excellent condition; the two lower front pockets are still basted shut!

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

    13) SUMMER-WEIGHT 3/2 JACKET FROM ZEGNA.

    14) BEAUTIFUL ALAN ROYCE OF PRINCETON SUMMER JACKET!

    [​IMG]


    A lovely, rare jacket--just $25 or offer! [​IMG]

    c. 40, 42. Measurements:

    Chest: 21 1/2
    Sleeve: 24 3/4 (+2 1/4)
    Shoulder: 18 3/4
    Length: 30 1/2

    Located at the corner of Nassau and Chamber Street, the store that housed Alan Royce from December 1983 to its demise in June 1993 had over 50 years of menswear sold in it--first as the venerable Douglas MacDaid, then The Country Squire... and the Alan Royce.

    Although Alan Royce--run by Alan Haines, who then become one of the key employees for Natalson's after the store's closing--was founded in the 1980s it was steeped in Old Princeton. The store featured hand-made cabinetry, polo and hunting prints, and an antique armoire, and the clothing was utterly traditional..... Indeed, so traditional that while MacDaid is starting to face from memory Alan Royce has now entered the Princeton pantheon, along with Langrock, The English Shop, Normal Hilton and Landau's--no mean feat for a store that barely lasted a decade.

    Owing to its relatively short life Alan Royce clothing is scarce--and so if you'd like your wardrobe to have a representative sampling of Princeton style you should grab it while you can!

    This jacket is a great example of Alan Royce's wares!

    The colour is absolutely beautiful--the perfect summer shade of seafoam blue-green; my pictures don't do this justice at all!

    Although there is no fabric content listed, it's either lightweight silk, or a blend of silk and linen; it's has a wonderful hand and drape, as is woven as a subtle broken bone herringbone. Cut as a contemporary two button jacket with subtle darts, this is half-canvassed and fully lined. It has four button cuffs and a single centre vent.

    It was, of course, Made in the USA.

    It does have two small flaw; a very faint shadow stain on the top left lapel, as shown; this can hardly be seen, and won't be noticeable when the jacket is worn. It also has a minor mark at the hem at the vent. This jacket is thus in Very Good condition, and is only $25, or offer, boxed, shipped, and insured in the USA.

    As such, this jacket is in Good/Very Good condition, and is a bargain at just $25, or offer, boxed, shipped, and insured in the USA.

    19) KARL LAGERFELD SILK HERRINGBONE JACKET, WITH THREE PATCH POCKETS!

    [​IMG]


    Tagged 41. Measurements:

    Chest: 22
    Sleeve: 25 (+2)
    Shoulder: 19 1/2
    Length: 31

    Karl Lagerfeld is one of the best-known contemporary fashion designers, and although his shock of white hair, high-collared shirts, and black suits aren't Ivy at all, his work isn't always removed from Ivy Style..... At the time of his death in February 2019 he had a contract with the very traditional Scottish knitwear firm Ballantyne to design sweaters.

    This jacket is another example of his work in the more traditional and classic mode. Cut from pure silk tweed in a lovely miniature herringbone, this has an Anglo-inspired three button from like a hacking jacket, and three patch pockets, with the breast pocket being set at the correct Ivy slant. True to its English inspiration the jacket is darted and has twin hook vents and four button cuffs with faux buttonholes. It is quarter-lined in Lagerfeld's signature lining and fully canvassed. It has British military shoulders.

    It is is absolutely excellent condition.

    This jacket was originally sold by Der Herrensaustatter in Hamburg, Germany, an extremely exclusive and expensive classic menswear store. According to their website, they cater to:

    21) AN IVY CLASSIC! 3/2 SACK BLUE BLAZER FROM THE ENGLISH SHOP OF PRINCETON.

    [​IMG]


    In a rare larger size!

    Measurements:

    Chest: 24
    Sleeve: 28 (+1 3/4)
    Shoulder: 21 3/4
    Length: 33 1/2

    Union made in the USA for The English Shop of Princeton--one of Princeton's Big Five clothiers during the Golden Age of Ivy Style--this is cut as a classic 3/2 sack blazer from heavier mid-weight navy wool.

    It is half-canvassed and half-lined, and has a single center vent. It has a lovely lapel roll, and two lower flapped, patch pockets. It has a full set of original heraldic brass buttons stamped "Superior Quality" on the reverse.

    This jacket does have a couple of minor issues; it has some collar creep at the rear--which could be fixed by a press--and a very small blemish on the front, which will likely come out with dry-cleaning. It has a small "bump" on the reverse of the top button. It also needs a dry clean to freshen it up.

    As such, this is in Very Good condition, and is a bargain at just $35, or offer, boxed, shipped, and insured in the USA.

    22) VINTAGE 1960s THREE BUTTON SACK SUMMER JACKET

    [​IMG]


    c. 40, 42S. Measurements:

    Chest: 21 1/2
    Sleeve: 24 (+1 1/2)
    Shoulder: 18 1/2
    Length: 28 1/2

    Union Made in the USA during the middle of the 1960s this lovely jacket appears to be cut from a blend of wool and cotton. A pleasant moss green base with vertical striping in russet and forest green, this would be a perfect transitional jacket for late Summer and early Fall.

    It was made by Baxter Clothes--one of the major makers of classic mid-level menswear in the 1960s--and is half-canvassed and half-lined. It has a single center vent and two button cuffs. All of the buttons are original, and it has lovely narrow mid-century lapels!

    It does have some very minor surface pilling throughout, but this won't be seen when worn. It also has a very small blemish on the front--again, this won't be seen when worn.

    This is thus in Good condition, and is a bargain at just $20, or offer, boxed, shipped, and insured in the USA.
