    My grail jacket. The shop that sold the jacket to Einstein is still there. It's called Hilton's and is on Witherspoon Street. Einstein would have walked past it on his way to the University from his house. It's a small storefront but goes way into the back and sells jeans, boots, sweatshirts, etc. It's right off Duval Street, the main drag in Princeton and is worth visiting if you're in the area. Right around the corner is Landau's, a great old shop that sells Harris Tweeds, Scneider Loden coats, Irish and Scottish woolies, etc. A great shop and really nice people.

    @tropicalbob funnily enough I was in Princeton in January.. My youngest is a lacrosse player and had an event at the university.. It would be interesting to check out Hiltons if ever I go back.. re: this LVC Einstein...is a nice jacket and I really like it but it does not compare to other high end jackets we are used to here.. Get yourself the Mister Freedom Campus they're very close in style but the MF jacket is much better made and actually cheaper...

    I wasn’t going to say anything before I read this, but when I saw your photos in that jacket I thought to myself that it is one of the less impressive pieces in your collection. Strictly my opinion of course.

    Interesting! Thanks for sharing that. I believe one of the originals is for sale on ebay somewhere.

    that LVC collar to me looks like a moto band collar folded down casually, might work with the collar popped up as well which to me a lot cooler than MF decidedly cossack with cord fabrics facing out, LVC needs to do the button necking better though

    El.. certainly no offense taken.. it’s just a jacket, and I value your opinion.. the whole package was a bit goofy.. with the cologne and auction paddle etc.. the best part For me is this one “fits” whereas the MF campus I had didnt..

    I saw one of the LVC Einstein’s on eBay for $2500 .. that’s so far outta line it’s crazy.. but if anyone wants this one I’ll take $2500

    They still making that carpet??? Had one when I was a kid. Everyone did back in the 80's. In any case, she's strong 'cause that Cheyenne must weigh as much as she does. :)
