Extremely rare--especially in this condition!
And simply packed with features, such as hand-cut horn buttons.

c. 38. Measurements:

Chest: 19 1/2
Sleeve: 24 1/2 (+1)
Shoulder: 17 1/2
Length: 30

This is absolutely wonderful--a lovely vintage faux suede jacket, made by Gordon of Philadelphia for Marshall Fields' flagship store in Chicago.

The light creamy-beige suedette from which this is cut has also been very carefully stored, and so is still lovely and supple without any hint of stiffness. It has a wonderful hand and a lovely soft nap, with no rubbing at all.

Although the nature of the material precluded Gordon of Philadelphia from making faux suede 3/2 sack jackets they remained true to their Ivy credentials by making faux suede two button sack jackets--of which this is one.

Beautifully cut and sewn, this jacket has elegant curving side seams to give the body shape. It has a single center vent, and flapped patch pockets: These are surrounded by lapped seams. Even when working with suede Gordon of Philadelphia didn't omit the details!
The buttons are extremely thick, and are hand-cut from natural horn. Each button is unique. All of the buttons are present and original.

The lining is absolutely spectacular--a wonderful and unusual regimental stripe in the colours of the Argyle and Sutherland regiment.
This jacket likely dates from the late 1960s or early 1970s. It is in excellent condition--with the exception of two tiny minor blemishes on the leading edge of the placket, as shown.

Asking just $65, or offer, boxed, shipped, and insured in the USA. The set of original thick, hand-cut horn buttons alone are worth this!
