    Cording of Piccadilly, London, Quilted Field Jacket.

    [​IMG]

    Made in Scotland for Cording of London (a store that has been in continuous operation since 1839) this is an absolutely beautiful traditional Quilted Field Jacket.

    The external shell is all cotton, and has been quilted for maximum warmth with minimum heft. The lining--which features one of Cording's famous signature tattersall patterns--is all wool, and is also quilted. Despite its lightness this is an extremely warm and comfortable jacket to wear!

    It features two deep handwarmer pockets on the front--also lined in the same quilted wool as the main jacket--and has a twin rear vent for horse-riding. The jacket is secured by Cording's signature press-studs, as is the rear vent should you desire this. (Please note that as is traditional the studs are fastened on the "female" side, unlike buttons.) The cuffs also fasten with studs.

    This also features Cording's own label, attesting to its quality.

    This jacket is in Very Good condition. There is some minor bleeding from the shell onto the wool lining at the hem, and the previous owner wore the jacket with the sleeves rolled up slightly; since the shell has faded this has left the cuffs a slighter brighter (original!) hue than the rest of the jacket. And the shell has the usual minor scuffs from use. All of this, of course, should be considered patina, rather than flaws, and gives the jacket additional character!

    Asking just $69, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA.

    BEAUTIFUL Beretta Quilted Field Jacket

    [​IMG]

    Made in Italy by Beretta, the Italian gunsmith and sporting goods firm that was founded in 1526 (Beretta furnished the Venetian fleet with its cannon barrels used in the Battle of Lepanto in 1571!) this is a lovely classic Quilted Field Jacket in navy blue.

    Featuring a complementary cord collar--with the cord being repeated at the edges of the two front handwarmer pockets--this jacket is fastened with Beretta's signature press-studs that are designed to look like Beretta's own branded shotgun shells. The jacket has a plaid shoulder lining and blue interior lining; it also features and interior zippered security pocket. It features Thermore insulation. It has a twin vent for ease of horse-riding, this can be secured with press-studs if desired. This jacket features the Beretta logo on the right chest.

    It was Made in Italy and is in excellent condition, apart from a small mark on one sleeve, as shown.

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