Founded in 1921, Van Boven is one of the few traditional clothiers that is still going strong--and they still purvey classic Ivy items such as this lovely 3/2 sack in dark brown herringbone tweed!
Although this presents as a dark brown herringbone tweed closer inspection reveals that this is in fact a wonderful medley of dark chestnut brown, lichen greens, and earthy black. Cut as a 3/2 sack with a high lapel roll this lovely jacket is half-canvassed and half-lined, and features a single center vent. It has three button cuffs, and was Union Made in the USA.
Apart from a single thread slip on the back near the shoulder this is in excellent condition, and so is a bargain at just $35, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA!
