Those are nice! And I don't get how not wearing tassles is heresy, though. They're less "trad" in my view than non-tassles.

Happy Sunday all.
I am seeking a taker for this nice custom Norfolkian by Neiman's. It has a "made" date of 1970. The lapels are not too terribly wide at 3 1/8". The drop to the top button is 18 1/2". It is darted. It has some padding. 100% wool in a chestnut and blue pane. Would be on eBay, but for one small snag on the sleeve. There is no missing material. It simply needs to be stitched back in place. Unsized. See measurements. W22 L31 Sh18.5 SL25 CLAIMED

5) The English Shop of Princeton 3/2 sack in cord by Corbin.

This is a terrific little gem! Made in the USA by Corbin for The English Shop of Princeton--one of the Big Four Ivy clothiers during the Golden Era of Ivy Style--this is a classic 3/2 sack, which features three patch pockets at the front--a very rare and desirable combination! The buttons are all natural horn; it features three on the front, and three on each sleeve. It is fully canvassed, and half-lined, and has a single centre vent.

Alas, this jacket has seen some wear. There is some minor sun fading on the sleeves and shoulders, and some brown foxing on the lapel at the roll, as shown, as well as more minor foxing by the hem on the front and on on the left sleeve. Despite these issues this is still very wearable, although it is in Good condition only. Because of these issues this is priced very low, given its provenance and the fact that it has a complete set of horn buttons, and so is just $22, or offer.

Chest: 20
Sleeve: 24 1/2 (+1 1/2)
Shoulder: 17 3/4

6) VINTAGE Classic Autumnal Plaid 3/2 jacket

This is wonderful! A true vintage 3/2 jacket that dates from the Golden Era of Ivy Style, this was made by Palm Beach, back when they made good stuff, for Strawbridge & Clothiers, of Philadelphia--the Strawbridge Building is now occupied by a mall brand, having folded in the 1990s, but during its existence it was a bastion of tradliness for the Philadelphia Main Line country club set.

This jacket is lovely! Its tweed has a classic 1950s/1960s patterning and colourway, a subdued plaid in muted forest greens and dark chestnuts, with a lighter green--almost grassgreen--overcheck. Although it has a 3/2 lapel, it features subtle darting, and a single centre vent. It is fully canvassed, and half-lined. It as, of course, Union Made in the USA.

It does have two minor issues: One of the cuff buttons is missing, which I would simply fix by converting it to a one-button cuff on both sides. And the lining has some fading to its colour at the edges owing to its age. Given these minor issues this is overlal in Very Good condition, and hence is

just $29, or offer.

Measurements:


Chest: 20 3/4
Sleeve: 24 1/2 (+1 1/2)
Shoulder: 18 1/2
Length: 30 1/2






7) VINTAGE 3/2 sack in light loden twill

This is a SPLENDID jacket! Cut from a lovely thick twill in a light loden green, this beauty is a true 3/2 sack with a lovely lapel roll. It dates from between 1962 and 1972, judging by the Union Label, and was sold by Roots, one of the major purveyors of tradly items in New Jersey and Eastern PA. (And this has a wonderful vintage label from there!) It has a lovely lapel roll, and the twill is wonderfully durable and attractive--almost like keeper's tweed, except all-wool and with no cotton content. It has classic two button cuffs, and is half-canvassed and half-lined. It has a single centre vent. And, of course it was Made in the USA.

This is in excellent condition, except for one minor flaw.... Sometime around 1978 the original owner left two things in the lower left pocket: a list of instructions from one of his clients (he was a lawyer), which were typed out on a manual typewriter.... and some candy! Unfortunately, the candy "leaked" into the lining of the pocket, which is now stiff and candified. (And possibly edible.) This has no effect on the jacket, but my advice would be to have the pocket liner replaced--a simple and easy job for any competent dry-cleaner tailor.

Given this, this jacket is in Very Good condition overall, and hence is very well priced at just

$29, or offer.

This is a lovely jacket! A contemporary two button model with subtle darting, this is half-canvassed and half-lined. It has four button cuffs and a single centre vent. The buttons are all leather-covered and metal-shanked--as they should be with Harris Tweed!--and they have just the right amount of patina. The tweed is wonderful; at first sight, it presents as a standard grey/black.cream basketweave, but closer inspection reveals that it is flecked throughout with chestnut brown, sky blue, corn yellow, and forest green--a lovely subtle Harris! It has lovely natural shoulders. This was Made in the USA. It's in excellent condition.

Asking just $25, or offer.

Chest: 20 1/2

11) THIS IS SPECIAL! Harris Tweed 3/2 sack.

Although the classic Ivy jacket is clearly the 3/2 sack, and the classic Ivy jacket material is Harris Tweed, 3/2 sacks in Harris Tweed are surprisingly rare, so if you find one in your size, grab it! That goes triple for this jacket, as the tweed is wonderful--a classic slate-blue herringbone, shot through the the classic vertical Harris striping, in this case a lovely tearose pink and light rose yellow.. The buttons are all leather-covered and metal-shanked, and the jacket is half-lined and half-canvassed. It has a lovely lapel roll, and a single centre vent. It was, of course, Made in the USA, and was sold at a Marblehead, Mass. clothier that was founded in 1925. It is in absolutely excellent condition!

14) STUNNING Plaid 3/2 sack with BAKELITE HUNTING DOG BUTTONS!

This is GORGEOUS! I'm loathe to part with this, but I have to admit that it just doesn't fit me properly--if it did, of it it could be tailored to fit, there's no way that it would be here.

The patterning and colouring are terrific--I'll let the pictures here speak for themselves! WHat yoiu can't tell from the pictures is that the cloth is wonderful--wool, but with a gorgeously soft hand and texture, that's almost flannel-like. This is a very luxurious jacket indeed! This is cut as a 3/2 sack, with a lovely liquid lapel roll. It is half-canvassed and half-lined, with a single centre vent. The shoulders are wonderfuly natural. And the buttons are FANTASTIC--my pictures don't do them justice at all. Creamy and smooth, they appear to be horn, but are actually more likely to be very fine Bakelite--and they feature a bas-relief of a standing hunting dog!

This really is a beautiful jacket, and I'm sorry to let it go....

This is a classic 3/2 sack with a lovely fluid lapel roll; it also has a single centre vent, and is half-canvassed. The tweed is lovely--a beautiful glen plaid with blue and lichen green overchecking. The buttons are horn! It was Made in the USA.

This lovely jacket does, however, have some minor flaws in the lining, as shown; all of these are easy fixes, with the exception of the discoloration in the shoulders, which could simply be ignored. Because of these flaws, this is conservatively rated as Good/Very Good condition, and hence is just

Made in Italy from Italian cloth that's a blend of 90% wool and 10% cashmere with a correspondingly beautiful hand and drape, the cloth is close to a nailhead pattern, with a base of dark brown and the nailheads in rich chestnut brown and dark tan. My pictures do not do this justice at all! The lapel is cut as a 3/2, but this does have subtle darting--it is, after all, an Italian jacket!

This is absolutely gorgeous!


It does have two minor flaws; there is a small rub mark at the hem on the front, as shown. There's also two very small smudges on the left pocket flap, which will likely come out with dry cleaning. It took me a while to find these, but they are there, and because of this this jacket is just in Very Good condition. As such, I am asking just $18, or lower offer, boxed and shipped in the USA. International inquiries are very welcome--and lower offers are very welcome, too!

Hey, I need a blazer. Really. I've got one, and it's been to three tailors, and no one can get the dang thing to fit right. (I think it's the shoulders--HSM was really padding shoulders when it was made.) Does anyone have a blazer with these (approximate) measurements? Thanks very, very much; I'm going nuts.

Shoulder: 18"
Chest: 21.5"
Sleeve: 26"

Again, thanks.

Any interest in these Peal & Co. loafers? I'm having trouble making out a size from the markings inside. It kind of looks like it says 8.5 B, but I can't quite tell. If anyone's interested, I'll post a picture of the markings and will do my best with measurements.





Are we looking at an 8.5 B?

Didn't mean to mislead before; not a giveaway, but I'm quite flexible on the price. Heels are worn and there is some minor clouding (see full photo album by clicking on either photo above), but overall looking good.

Asking $65 CONUS but I'm very open to offers.

Were tagged (now removed) XXL, fit like an American XL. Please see actual sizes (identical for both shirts). Excellent condition. Must-iron. I am only selling because I am 6’4”, and the body of the shirt is a bit short for me in the front (note: I had an extra button added to the front at the bottom).

Asking $29.00 CONUS for both.

Click on either of the pictures above to see all the rest.

Looks like 8.5 B to me, especially if they were made for BB (I recall that might be the case). Might want to add photos of soles and heels--that's what is often important to potential buyers.

Wish there was a way to set up a Cinderella Club so we could figure out what size mystery shoes actually were...

And before anyone suggests it, sorry, but sole measurements are no real help, although I have flipped a fair amount of unmarked footwear on eBay with sole measurements only. If the brand/quality is high enough, someone will always bite.

Looks like 8.5 B to me, especially if they were made for BB (I recall that might be the case). Might want to add photos of soles and heels--that's what is often important to potential buyers.

Wish there was a way to set up a Cinderella Club so we could figure out what size mystery shoes actually were...

And before anyone suggests it, sorry, but sole measurements are no real help, although I have flipped a fair amount of unmarked footwear on eBay with sole measurements only. If the brand/quality is high enough, someone will always bite.
Thanks for your help! Clicking on either of my photos links to an album with several more (including soles and heels).

Brooks Brothers Solid Navy 3/2 Suit

Brooks Brothers Golden Fleece 42R 3/2 Solid Navy Suit

$200 shipped. Feel free to make offers by PM.

Very classic and timeless suit. Brooks Brothers Golden Fleece is the highest tier. A standard solid navy
blue in wool. It is a dark navy, lighter than most of the pictures portray, but still a dark navy. Traditional
features: 3/2 roll, 2 button cuffs, sack construction, single vent, soft shoulders, flat front trousers and
cuffs. Close to a 42R, but it's not tagged. See measurements. The lapels are even when actually worn;
they only look slightly off in the pictures because of the way it's hung on the hanger. It will need to
be pressed.

Sorry if the pictures are obnoxiously big.

Measurements:


Shoulders: 19"


Chest: 22.5"


OAL*: 32"


Sleeves: 26" (about 2.5" left to take out)

Lapels: 3.75"

*Overall length measured from the bottom of the collar to the bottom hem on the back.

Pants' waist: 35.5" (Nothing left to take out)

Inseam: 30" (about an inch to let out, 2.5" to let out if cuffs are sacrificed)

Please contact me with any questions or concerns.
Paypal and continental US only.

I think it is important for newer members to look at the history of this thread concerning pricing. I have seen a couple post lately that are priced higher than eBay wish pricing. Think of it this way, if you want higher prices for your items list them on eBay. If you have something that you would like to offer to the "community" list it here for a reasonable price.

Due respect, disagree. Sellers should be free to ask whatever they wish. It is a free market.

This said, more and more, I skip listing here and go directly to eBay. It is much easier to list, for one thing. Uploading photos here takes much, much longer than it does on eBay. I can typically list at least three things on eBay in the time it takes me to list one thing here, and time, as they say, is money. Once you learn the ins and outs of eBay, which takes awhile, you make significantly more money selling on eBay, even with fees factored in, than you do here. There are a lot more tire kickers here than on eBay--you end up answering a lot more questions from prospective buyers who never pull the trigger. Stuff tends to sell faster on eBay than it does here. I can't speak for other sellers, but when I list here it is because I like the clientele and I think the item in question has appeal to AAAC members.

It takes a lot of time and trouble, not to mention a few bucks, to rummage through thrift stores to find things. There is no reason, in my estimation, that sellers who go through this time and effort should give stuff away. You will always pay less here than you will on eBay, but that doesn't mean that I, or any other seller, should post, say, a mint BB OCBD for $12, leaving the seller less than $5 in "profit," when it will fetch twice that on eBay. Really, when you think about it, the prices here should be higher than on eBay. After all, most sellers start here before moving to eBay, so buyers here are getting first crack. For that, they should pay a premium. That they do not speaks volumes about the, for lack of better word, karma on this website. I say all of this as someone who isn't getting rich or anywhere close. No seller on this site is.

Would someone please buy Tweedy's O'Connell glen plaid (#20)? I've been lusting after that thing for weeks, but I'm a 38/39 and it's just too big for me, yet every time I see it, I wonder if I could possibly stuff newspapers under a dress shirt so that I could wear it. It's too beautiful for words.

Some folks seem to be completely missing the point of the Exchange. Happens from time to time with newbies....sad when it's longtime members.

Hey Engprof, that was mine - I bought it on eBay a while back. I'm a 38 and it fit me pretty well, but the sleeves and waist needed alterations and I decided to pass it on. It's a beautiful jacket, though, and I'm really surprised that it hasn't sold. Perfect for early fall...

edit: if it doesn't sell, I'm going to ask Tweedy to send it back!

I know I'm a relative newbie, and I have no real stake in this discussion, but I'll chime in--God help me--and say that if the pricing comment was inspired by that Golden Fleece suit above, then I think that's kind of unfair. Sure, people may post high-end suits here sometimes for $50 or whatever; the fact remains that $200 for a staple $2,000+ solid navy suit is--any way you slice it, any place you post it--a pretty dang good deal, and is in keeping with the fraternal spirit of the Exchange. If I were a 42R and in the market for a suit, I would buy that thing in a heartbeat.

I'm surprised it hasn't been claimed yet--but I think it's about to be! :)

And it's claimed! :)
