Hi, Patrick--

Yes! I'm very interested. Please let me know. As for the weight gain, I'm, alas, on the same trajectory--hence the need for a bunch of new shirts. In addition to blue, please let me know if you have any in white, tattersall, and pink (as well as blue or tattersall).

Thank you.

Looking for any bb ecru ppbd?

NWOT Brooks Brothers "Madison" Hacking Jacket

This gorgeous jacket is new, and unworn, although its tags have all been removed and the basting from the pockets and vent has been removed, also.


This jacket is spectacular! Cut from a beautiful woolen cloth woven in England, the patterning and colourway of the shell are perfectly English, and absolutely perfect for afternoon walks on your estate, grouse shooting on the moors, or simply tramping through the woods in search of chestnuts with the Labrador. This would also be utterly acceptable for a less formal dinner party in the nicer parts of Gloustershire, or to attend the County Court in your role as the local magistrate! The base of this cloth is a classic English moss green; the windowpane overchecking is in russet red and dark blue.


My pictures don't do this justice at all--but the cut of the jacket does full justice to the quality of the cloth that it's made from! Cut as an English hacking jacket, this has a traditional country three button front. The two primary front pockets are slightly slanted, as you'd expect on a hacking jacket, as is the fully functional ticket pocket. It has slightly military shoulders in the English tradition. This jacket is--of course!--twin vented; moreover, it includes in the interior a lining vent strip, designed to keep the vent from opening too far when the jacket is worn, a feature that very few jackets have unless they are custom made. The jacket is fully canvassed, and fully lined. The lining is Bemberg, and features pick stitching throughout. The jacket has four button cuffs.


This jacket is in absolutely immaculate condition. Originally, this cost a small fortune; here, it is merely $60, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA.


Tagged 42L and unaltered. This measures:


Chest: 21 3/4
Sleeve: 25 3/4 (+2 1/4)
Shoulder: 19 3/8
Length: 32 1/4

1) WONDERFUL Southwick houndstooth jacket.

This is wonderful! Made by Southwick, one of the great traditional American clothiers, for Roots, one of the great (and long gone) tradly clothiers of upscale New Jersey, this beautiful jacket is cut from a classic grey and cream houndstooth tweed with accents of forest green, with a complementary dark red windowpane overcheck. It is half-canvassed and fully lined. It's a contemporary two button front closure jacket, with subtle darting and a single centre vent. It has four button cuffs; all the buttons are likely horn. It was, of course, Made in the USA, and it's in absolutely excellent condition.

Asking just $35, or offer, for this beauty!

2) WONDERFUL Custom Tailored Tweed 3/2 sack by Brooks Brothers!

This is a wonderful jacket--and one attached to some political controversy!

This jacket was made in 1989 for John R. Fiorino... who made the headlines of the Washington Post in 1988 as a contributor to the Dukakis campiagn. Dukakis was running ads against George Bush (The Other One) criticizing him for being an elitist, and presented himself a a Man of the People. In response to this The Washington Post ran an article attacking Dukakis for being an elitist, noting that at least 50 wealthy Americans had contributed over $50,00 each to his campaign--and some had contributed as much as $100k! (Remember, this was 1988... and while these figures are large now, they were astronomical then! One of the wealthy American elite was the wealthy Chairman of the Monmouth Co., NJ, Democratic Party--John Fiorino... who commissioned this jacket just over one year later. (For the record, Fiorino contributed $80,000 to the Dukakis campaign--which would have bought a LOT of nice tweeds!)

Whatever you think of his politics, Fiorino had excellent taste in jackets! This beautiful 3/2 sack has a wonderfully liquid label roll, and is cut from a beautiful dove-grey herringbone tweed that's shot through with vertical striping of cream, baby blue, and sepia tea rose pink. It's absolutely lovely! And the tailoring on it is exquisite--it's absolutely beautifully cut, and the pattern matching on the back is beautiful. It's half-canvassed and half-lined, with a single centre vent. It has three button cuffs and faux buttonholes. It was, of course, Made in the USA. It's in excellent condition, and a steal--for either Democrats or Republicans--at

just 35, or offer.

Measurements:


Chest: 21 7/8
Sleeve: 23 1/4 (+1 1/2)
Shoulder: 18 3/4
Length: 29








3) A JACKET WITH AN AMERICAN TALE

This jacket is wonderful.... Not just for its own sake, but for the American stories that are woven into its fabric.

If the Brooks Brothers jacket, above, was a sign of the Establishment, this jacket is an example of the other end of the American spectrum--the self-made immigrants and long-time workers who built AMerican from the ground up, and made themselves wealthy in so doing.

Let's start with the jacket itself. Made by Schneider's Custom Tailoring of Pittsburgh, you might think that this was made by a tailoring firm with German origins. But it wasn't; Schneider's was owned and operated by Tonino Trivelli, an Italian immigrant to the United States. Trivelli had little formal education, since he began work as a tailor's apprentice in 1946, age 12. The Second World War was just over, and young Tonino needed to help contribute to the family finances in a devastated Europe. Through hard work and skill he rose to the rank of Master Tailor--no mean feat in Italy. At some point he emigrated to the United States, choosing as his destination Pittsburgh.... as he already had family connections in the large and vibrant Italian communities that supplied a lot of the labor to the local steel mills. There, he set up Schneider's Custom Tailoring, eventually managing to move into the prestigious Oliver Building, Pittsburgh's famous skyscraper. He'd arrived--and his clients knew it. You want first-rate Italian tailoring? You go to Schneider's.

And who better to be a client of his than another self-made man, Edward L. Solomon? A long-term Western PA working class family, his grandparents were in the steel industry as foremen and union bosses in Beaver Falls and Pittsburgh, probably employees of Crucible Steel. After serving in the Naval Air Corps Edward saved enough to buy Mercer Lime and Stone, which he expanded and made successful.

Steel, stone, and Italian tailoring from immigrants who started age 12.... This is an *American* jacket!

And it lives up to its heritage. Made in November 1993, this is a beautiful glen plaid check, this is cut from lighter-weight 11 1/2oz cloth; perfect for modern office environments, which is just what the CEO of Mercer Lime and Stone needed. The colourway is beautiful; muted and autumnal. This has patch pockets--always a desirable feature! It's half canvassed and half-lined, and has a single centre vent. It's subtly darted--as you'd expect from Italian tailoring--and has a two button closure. This is a wonderful example of Italian-American tailoring! It's in excellent condition.

Asking just $25 for a piece of American history, boxed and shipped in the USA.

Measurement
s:


Chest: 22
Sleeve: 23 (+1 3/4)
Shoulder: 19 1/2
Length: 30 1/2








4) CLASSIC TWEED in herringbone and barleycorn--with TICKET POCKET!

This is a lovely, classic tweed jacket! The tweed itself is wonderful; alternating vertical bands of classic grey herringbone in light grey and dark grey, and classic barleycorn, in the same colour scheme, woven together to form a beautifully complex yest subtle tweed. This is shot through with vertical stripes of forest green, sky blue, sepia pink, and dusty orange, for a wonderfully complex tweed indeed.

The cut of the jacket does justice to its cloth. A contemporary two button front closure, this has flapped front poickets--including a ticket pocket that is still basted shut! It has subtle darts, and a single centre vent. It has four buttons cuffs--the buttons throughout are likely horn. It is half-canvassed and half-lined. It was Union made in the USA for Austin Reed, and is in excellent condition.

Asking just $25, or offer.

Measurements:


Chest: 19 1/2
Sleeve: 24 3/4 (+1 3/4)
Shoulder: 17 7/9
Length: 29








5) GORGEOUS Harris Tweed in Charcoal Herringbone with vertical striping!

This is absolutely GORGEOUS! A classic charcoal herringbone Harris Tweed, this is enlivened with classic Harris vertical stripes in beautiful shades of forest green, Royal blue, and rust orange; this is a truly lovely example of Harris tweed!

The jacket lives up to the cloth; a contemporary two button model with subtle darts and a single centre vent, it appears to be half-canvassed, and is half-lined. It has four button cuffs--and all the buttons are the classic leather covered, metal-shanked, football buttons that go so perfectly with Harris tweed. This jacket was Made in the USA, and is in absolutely excellent condition. It's a bargain at

just $27, or offer.

Tagged 40R. Measurements:


Chest: 20 1/4
Sleeve: 24 1/4 (+ 1 1/2)
Shoulder: 18 1/8
Length: 29 1/2








6) SPECTACULAR and RARE Harris Tweed!

This is a wonderful jacket, and if it was just a bit smaller there's no way that it would be here, as I love the more unusual yet classic Harris patterns. Cut from a lovely traditional weight Harris Tweed, the patterning and colourway of this jacket are both wonderful. The base is a traditional and classic cream, slate grey, and peat black houndstooth; this is overlaid with windowpane overchecking in russet, the colour of bracken in late autumn. This really is a beautiful jacket!

It's a contemporary two button model, with subtle darts. It has three button cuffs. All of the buttons are traditional the traditional metal-shanked, leather-covered buttons that go so well with Harris--here, they're a lovely shade of rich chestnut that complements the overchecking perfectly. The jacket is half-canvassed and half-lined, and has a single centre vent. It was Union Made in the USA--and is in absolutely excellent condition!

Asking just $35, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA.

Measurements:


Chest: 21 1/2
Sleeve: 26 (+1 3/4)
Shoulder: 18
Length: 31 3/4










7) Classic Tweed, cut from Dormeuil cloth!

This is a lovely understated tweed! This is made from cloth from Dormeuil, a French clothiers that has been in business since 1842. Dormeuil cloth is easily some of the best in the world, although whether its quality justifies its exceptionally high cost (higher than other superb fabrics, such as those by Holland & Sherry) is a matter for debate. Of course, the original cost of this fabric won't concern you since this is appearing here... But it does indicate that this is an exceptionally nice jacket indeed!

The Dormeuil cloth from which this jacket is cut is lovely; a miniature check in autumnal shades of chestnut, bracket, moss green, and tan, this is a very versatile jacket indeed. Made by Austin Reed, there's no country of manufacture listed, but judging by the twin vent it's either England, or, judging by the three button cuffs with no faux buttonholes, the USA. In either case, the quality of the tailoring is excellent; it's half-canvassed and fully lined, and has a contemporary two button front with subtle darting. It's in absolutely excellent condition, and given the quality of both the cloth and the tailoring is a steal at

just $29, or offer.

Measurements:


Chest: 21 1/2
Sleeve: 27 1/2 (+ 1 3/4)
Shoulder: 18
Length: 32 1/2








8) VINTAGE 3/2 Tweed Sack in a beautiful and striking plaid!

Judging from the Union label this dates from the late 1960s, and was made for Macy's--back when Macy's was a store you'd want to buy clothing from, as it was still selling classic Made in the USA items... Like this wonderful 3/2 sack tweed! (Try finding a 3/2 sack at Macy's now, half a century after this little gem was first purchased....) While this is unapologetically a plaid tweed, it's not a bold "blanket" plaid, and so could readily be worn by anyone in any situation where tweed is appropriate. And the plaid is lovely; string, but not overwhelming, and a lovely medly of autumnal russets, brackets, peat black and tan.

The jacket itself is a classic 3/2 sack with two button cuffs. It is half-canvassed and half-lined, with a lapped center seam and a hook vent. It has very natural shoulders. 'm very conservative at grading vintage jackets, reserving "Excellent" for those that are NOS or close to it, and so this is in Very Good/Excellent condition. It was, of course, Union made in the USA, and is a bargain at

just $25, or offer.

Measurements:


Chest: 20 3/4
SLeeve: 24 3/4 (+2)
Shoulder: 17 5/8
Length: 29 5/8








9) BEAUTIFUL Contemporary 3/2 lambswool tweed sack from Brooks Brothers

This is a beautiful jacket! Cut from pure lambswool, this has a wonderfully soft hand and drape. The patterning and subtle and complex. The base is a chevron tweed in forest green, tan, and cream, overlaid with overchecking in forest green, slate blue, and russet bracken. This is cut as a 3/2 sack with a lovely fluid lapel and the traditional two button cuff. It is half-canvassed, and fully lined; the lining is a lovely shade of sepia rose. It has a single centre vent. This is a truly beautiful and distinctive jacket. It was, of course, Made in the USA.

This carries the old-school Brooks Brothers "block capitals on navy" label.

It is in excellent condition except for a single thread weave flaw on the left hand chest, and a similar weave flaw on the left cuff, as shown.

Asking just $27, or offer.

Tagged 44, this measures smaller:


Chest: 21 1/2
Sleeve: 25 (+1 1/2)
Shoulder: 19
Length: 30 1/8








10) Brooks Brothers Camelhair in muted earthtone glen plaid

This is a wonderfully subdued jacket! Cut from extremely lovely camelhair, this has a wonderful hand and drape. The glen plaid patterning is a subtle medley or loden green, autumn bracken, and earth browns; this is a perfect jacket for a New England Fall just as the leaves are turning. It is subtly darted, and has a two button closure, four button cuffs, and a center vent. It is fully canvassed and fully lined. It is in absolutely excellent condition.

Asking just $29, or offer.

Tagged 42XL, this measures:


Chest: 22
Sleeve: 27 (+1 3/4)
Shoulder: 19 1/4
Length: 34








11) VINTAGE! UTTERLY 1960s dark burgundy herringbone 2-button sack tweed--with original hanger!

This is both seriously rare, and seriously beautiful! It's hard to know where to start with this, so let's begin with the colourway. This is a very, very dark burgundy tweed in miniature herringbone heavily flecked throughout with dark black peat. This is an utterly 1960s aesthetic; it's a classic herringbone, and the colouring is dark, but it's still a burgundy tweed--shocking for the squares with their black and cream herringbones, or occasional daring glen plaid! This is also very 1960s Ivy; defiant, yet conventional, rebelling within the lines of probity.

As well as its colourway this is a very 1960s Ivy cut, with very narrow notch lapels, a lovely fluid lapel roll--AND it's a two-button sack! It features the classic two button cuffs, a single centre vent, and is half-lined. It is also fully canvassed. As you'd expect this carries a 1960s Union tag; where else would you build clothes like this, except in the USA--or possibly the swinging UK?

It's in absolutely excellent condition. It even comes complete with its original hanger!

Asking just $27, or offer.

Chest: 21 1/4
Sleeve: 24 1/2 (+1 1/2)
Shoulder: 18 1/4
Length: 30 5/8










12) CLASSIC Old-School Jos. A. Banks 3/2 sack herringbone tweed

Please don't confuse this with the current offerings from Jos. A Banks; this dates from its "Red Label" era, when it was a worthy rival to Brooks--and when Brooks was generally much better than it now is, too!

This is a classic 3/2 sack in brown and tan herringbone--if you don't have one of these in your wardrobe, you should! This has a very high lapel roll--almost a 2.5/3--with a lovely liquid roll. This features the classic two-button cuffs and a single center vent. It is half canvassed, Made in the USA, and has its original hang-tag intact. This is in absolutely excellent condition, and is a steal at

just $25, or offer.

Measurements:

Chest: 21 1/2
Sleeve: 23 (+2)
SHoulder: 19 1/2
Length: 30 1/2








13) CLASSIC herringbone Harris Tweed

If you don't have a black and cream or slate blue herringbone Harris tweed in your wardrobe--why not? This is an absolute staple, and, together with a good navy blazer, should be part of the backbone of any classic wardrobe. So, if you don't have one--now's your chance!

This example is lovely! A wonderful greyish slate-blue herringbone, this has classic metal-shanked football buttons, a two button closure, and is subtly darted. It is half-canvassed, half-lined, and has a single centre vent. It was, of course, Made in the USA. It's in excellent condition, although the buttons have a slight amount of patina, as shown.

Asking just $25, or offer.

Measurements:


Chest: 20
Sleeve: 24 (+ 1)
Shoulder: 18 1/4
Length: 29 1/2








14) CLASSIC herringbone Harris Tweed

The grey and cream herringbone Harris Tweed jacket is an absolute classic and a staple of any traditional wardrobe--and this is a lovely example for a larger chap!

Cut from classic grey and cream herringbone, this is a contemporary two button jacket with subtle darting. It features metal-shanked football buttons in black; three to each sleeve. It appears half-canvassed, and is half-lined with a single center vent. It was Made in the USA, and is in excellent condition.

Asking just $25, or offer.

Chest: 23 1/2
Sleeve: 26 (+1 3/4)
Shoulder: 19 3/4
Length: 30 1/2







15) RARE IVY/TRAD CLASSIC--a tweed stroller!

The "stroller"--a combination of jacket and waistcoat--is an increasingly rare Ivy classic, and this is a lovely example. (I'll also be posting a wonderful example from J. Press shortly.) Made for Neiman Marcus, the tweed has a soft moss green base with a bracken and sky-blue windowpane overcheck; perfect for Fall, Winter, and Spring!

The jacket is half-canvassed and half-lined, with a single center vent. It has a standard two-button closure, and three button cuffs. The waistcoat has four fully functional pockets.

This was Union Made in the USA.

This is in excellent condition, except that one of the cuff buttons on the jacket has broken. Since this has no faux buttonholes this is an easy fix; just remove it and its companion on the other sleeve, and convert this to a two-button cuff jacket!

Asking just $25, or offer.

Measurements:


Chest: 19 1/4
Sleeve: 25 (+2)
SHoulder: 17
Length: 29 1/2

Vest width: 17
Vest length: 25 3/4







17) 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

$20, or offer.

Chest: 21 3/4
Sleeve: 24 3/4 (+2 1/2)
Shoulder: 18 1/4

18) Lovely Vintage Shepard's Check Tweed!

This is absolutely lovely! A classic shepard's check--a pattern that is rarely seen nowadays--this jacket has a terrific colourway, being a medley of chestnut brown, russet, and black on a classic cream background. It is a standard contemporary two button front with very subtle darting. It is half-lined, and has a single centre vent. The buttons are classic leather-covered, metal-shanked "football" buttons. Although there is no country of origin listed this was clearly Made in the USA. It's in Very Good condition; it could just use a dry clean to freshen it up!

Asking just $22, or offer.

An academic Ivy classic, cord jackets traditionally come in brown or green--and this is one of the lovelier green ones I've seen! Cut from a lovely soft bottle-green wide wale corduroy, this is fully lined and half-canvassed. It has a standard contemporary two button front, is subtly darted, and has a single centre vent. It has three button cuffs, and was Made in the USA. It's in excellent condition.

20) OLD SCHOOL Jos. A. Banks Herringbone Tweed--with THREE PATCH POCKETS!

Please put your prejudice against JAB items to one side, for this jacket dates from the tail end of the "red label" era, when Banks could rival Brooks for decent Tradly items!

This is a classic tweed in dark grey herringbone stripes while alternate with similarly dark grey barleycorn stripes, making this a lovely and interesting tweed that still appears classic and conservative at a distance. This jacket is a contemporary two button model with subtle darts. It also has THREE patch pockets at front--including the ever desirable patch breast pocket! This jacket is fully lined, and half-canvassed. It is unvented, in Flusser-approved style, and was Made in the USA.

It's in excellent condition, and is a steal at just $25, or offer.

This is a lovely, classic Harris! Cut from dark grey herringbone, this is accented throughout with flecks and vertical stripes of rich burnished chestnut brown, forest green, and dark blue--a wonderful example of this famous tweed! The jacket itself is a contemporary two button model, with subtle darts and a single centre vent. It is fully lined, and was Made in the USA. This is a lovely, classic wardrobe staple, and a bargain at just

$29, or offer.

22) Classic Tweed Hacking Jacket!

This is a lovely example of a durable tweed hacking jacket!

This also features a half-lining, it is subtly darted, and has a two button front and three button cuffs. All of the buttons are leather-covered, metal-shanked, football buttons.

This jacket was made for Jack Lang, a family-owned department store chain based in Philadelphia that started in 1952 and closed in 1991, two years after its founded, Jack Lang, sold the business.

This jacket is in absolutely excellent condition, and although there's no country of origin listed it was clearly Made in the USA.

Chest: 20 3/4
Sleeve: 25 (+2)
Shoulder: 18

23) VINTAGE 3/2 sack jacket in classic charcoal herringbone tweed

Dating from February 1963, this is a lovely classic 3/2 sack jacket with a very high lapel roll; this is possibly the highest 3/2 lapel stance I've seen, and it's almost, but not quite a 3 button sack! It has beautifully narrow 1950s-1960s lapels, a lapped centre seam down the back, and a single hook vent. It is half-canvassed and half-lined. It is cut from a lovely classic charcoal herringbone tweed.

This was made for Croyden Men's Store in Trenton, NJ; although not as well known or as prestigious as the Donnelly stores, Croyden was most definitely an upscale retailer, featuring customized Hickey-Freeman suits and jackets... and running an aggressive bilboard-based advertising campaign in the 1940s and 1950s to position itself as the best men's store in Trenton!

This jacket is in Good/Very Good condition; it could do with a dry clean and a re-press on the lapels, and there is some rubbing to the interior pocket at the top--as is to be expected in a jacket of this age!

It's a bargain at just $20, or offer.

Measurements:

Chest: 22 1/4
Sleeve: 25 1/4 (+2)
Shoulder: 18
Length: 31

CLASSIC FIELD JACKETS! Three L.L. Bean (M, L, XL), Timberland.

The Field Jacket is THE classic American item of outerwear for Fall, the warmer Winter days, and Spring, and L.L. Bean make the definitive iconic version. I'm very pleased to offer three L.L. Bean Field Jackets, all with the desirable button-in liner.... as well as a lovely version of this classic made by Timberland!


General description:

Introduced in 1924, the Field Coat by L.L. Bean was originally designed for hunting, but its extreme versatility quickly took it out of the woods, and it's just as likely to be seen on the streets of the Upper East Side or Boston Common as it is deep in the Maine woods.

The outer shell is rugged two-ply cotton canvas, treated to be water resistant; the collar and cuffs are 16-wale corduroy for comfort and abrasion resistance. The jacket itself is designed for function. It features a deep lamb-chop pocket on either side at the front; the flap of this is the bottom of the upper lamb-chop pocket that is placed directly above it; a highly functional and innovative design.

Each coat is complete with its original tartan Primaloft button-in liner; the M and L coats also come complete with all of their original spare buttons!

GORGEOUS! Paul Stuart, "The Stinson Bomber". Size M.

MADE IN THE USA GORGEOUS PAUL STUART LEATHER JACKET!


"The Stinson Bomber"






This is absolutely stunning!

Cut from beautiful and buttery-soft leather that's a wonderful shade of autumnal brown, this beautiful bomber jacket clearly has the classic A-2 lying back in its heritage, as it's cut as very similarly to that icon of the Second War. Like the A2 it features two flapped from pockets with the flaps secured by large buttons; these pockets, similar to the civilian versions of the original A2, open at the sides to provide handwarmer pockets.

This jacket features a concealed placket secured by a heavy duty YKK zipper; to ensure that the jacket provides the proper silhouette and to give the whole look a neat and streamlined finish the placket is also secured by buttons at the top and bottom. The sleeves are cut as raglan sleeves for ease of movement; the cuffs are secured by heavy duty snaps.

This is a beautiful, classic bomber jacket, Made in the USA in 1990--although the condition, quality, and classic style of this jacket mean that it's just as contemporary today.

Asking just $95, OR OFFER, boxed and shipped in the USA.

This is sized M; likely best fit a 40 or 42. It measures:


Chest: 25 1/2 (this makes the jacket appear larger than it is; the sides are cut full under the sleeves.)
Sleeve: 34 1/2
Length (bottom of collar): 26 1/4

This gorgeous jacket is new, and unworn, although its tags have all been removed and the basting from the pockets and vent has been removed, also.


This jacket is spectacular! Cut from a beautiful woolen cloth woven in England, the patterning and colourway of the shell are perfectly English, and absolutely perfect for afternoon walks on your estate, grouse shooting on the moors, or simply tramping through the woods in search of chestnuts with the Labrador. This would also be utterly acceptable for a less formal dinner party in the nicer parts of Gloustershire, or to attend the County Court in your role as the local magistrate! The base of this cloth is a classic English moss green; the windowpane overchecking is in russet red and dark blue.


My pictures don't do this justice at all--but the cut of the jacket does full justice to the quality of the cloth that it's made from! Cut as an English hacking jacket, this has a traditional country three button front. The two primary front pockets are slightly slanted, as you'd expect on a hacking jacket, as is the fully functional ticket pocket. It has slightly military shoulders in the English tradition. This jacket is--of course!--twin vented; moreover, it includes in the interior a lining vent strip, designed to keep the vent from opening too far when the jacket is worn, a feature that very few jackets have unless they are custom made. The jacket is fully canvassed, and fully lined. The lining is Bemberg, and features pick stitching throughout. The jacket has four button cuffs.


This jacket is in absolutely immaculate condition. Originally, this cost a small fortune; here, it is merely $60, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA.


Tagged 42L and unaltered. This measures:


Chest: 21 3/4

Beautiful windowpane colors. If only it were a 44!

@ HerrDavid - what size blazer/sport coat do you wear? I'm trying to figure out if the Bill's sweater will fit me. Normally I have to shrink my Medium sweaters so they fit in body and arms.

Military Specification Peacoat--38R.

MILITARY SPECIFICATION PEACOAT




It's bitterly cold, and the Atlantic swell is rising up to 30 ft... The spray whips your cheeks icily, and the darkness makes it almost impossible to see anything but the moonlight glinting on the plunging wave crests, making your job as duty watch officer almost pointless, despite your knowledge that a U-Boat pack is in the vicinity.... You're glad of one thing, though--the warm, if now soaking, peacoat that you were issued, and that you hunch into against the cold.

This is that peacoat. Built by Sterlingwear, this is the military version that's not listed on their website, and only available by Special Order. It has all the features you'd expect, and none that aren't essential; thick, warm, wool shell, half-lined, two slash handwarmer pockets--pleasantly deep--with extra side reinforcements, an oversized collar that stays up when turned up, naval anchor buttons.....

This does have some minor pilling in the unlined interior half, and the interior change pocket in the front right pocket is slightly torn--an easy fix if you so desire! This is, then, in Very Good/Excellent condition.

Asking just $125, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA.

Size 38R. Measurements:

Chest: 20 3/4
Sleeve: 24 3/4
Shoulder: 18 1/2
Length: 31

EXQUISITE! Beautiful green flannel blazer from John Morgan & Co. London--founded in 1825, tailors to JFK and the British aristocracy!

FLANNEL BLAZER by JOHN MORGAN & CO, Hanover Square, London.

This is absolutely beautiful!

Although they are not a Savile Row firm, John Morgan & Co. are one of the most traditional and respected tailoring firms in England. Founded in 1825--some 24 years before Huntsman started on Savile Row--it started life as an "Army ad Military Tailors", specializing in the uniforms of British army officers. The firm found considerable success, tailoring for the Duke of Cambridge, who became the army chief under Queen Victoria, and securing the contract to make all of the uniforms for the less than military organization the Bank of England.

The quality of Morgan's tailoring was impeccable; Sheppard, one of the founders of Anderson & Sheppard, was trained at Morgan's before moving to open his own firm on Savile Row. The quality of the work was maintained through the centuries. The first major political figure they tailored for was Prime Minister Lord Palmerston in the C19th, the most recent was a "senior political figure" in Australia that they decline to name, indicating that this is likely a recent Prime Minister. In between they were the British tailor of choice for John F. Kennedy, as well as the Prime Minister Harold MacMillan--making them the only tailoring firm ever to have cut for a serving President and a serving Prime Minister at the same time.

They current hold the Warrant of the Duke of Cumberland, and continue to make beautiful clothes in George Street, Mayfair--one of the most insanely expensive and socially exclusive areas of an already insanely expensive city. They do not quote prices for their bespoke clothing online, and decline to do so by telephone, requiring that such details be discussed privately at your fitting. My suspicion is that you have any concern at all about price you simply can't afford them as your tailor.

So, unless you're exceptionally wealthy, now might be your only chance to own a Morgan jacket! This little beauty shows just why they have managed not only to survive but to flourish. Perfectly cut from a beautiful dark forest green flannel, this is simply packed with handwork throughout; there is pick stitching on the placket and throughout the lining, the labels are clearly hand cut and sewn, and all of the seamwork has clearly been done by hand. This jacket is, of course, fully canvassed and fully lined. It it cut--as befits a tailor with a British military heritage--as a darted three button jacket, with more than a nod to the military heritage of the cutters. (This is the classic Dress Jacket configuration of the better British regiments; appropriately so, since Morgan held the contract to provide the uniforms for the Queen's personal bodyguard in Scotland, the Honorable Archers, in the C19th.) The buttons are classic brass, and the cuff buttons are, of course, fully functional surgeon's cuffs.

This jacket was made in June 1978--but in the manner of classic British tailoring could just have easily been made last week. No wide lapels, flaring, or anything else indicate that this is a 1970s jacket; it could have been made by a top firm anywhere from 1890 to 2015.

This beautiful jacket is in excellent condition, with the exception of a smudge on the lining, as shown.

Asking just $60, OR OFFER, boxed and shipped in the USA. International inquiries welcome, with shipping at cost.

Please PM with interest and offers!

Chest: 20
Sleeve: 23 (+2 1/4"--but note this has surgeon's cuffs)

BEAUTIFUL REPRODUCTION B-3 JACKET!








This is absolutely gorgeous!


My mother grew up on a farm in the Fens of East Anglia during the Second World War, and vividly remembers the sound of massed Boeing engines of the B-17 Flying Fortress bombers taking off.... and the far more worrying sounds of the damaged engines of the survivors as they laboured back hours later; the mis-fires, stuttering, the shattered fuselages and silent propellers, as well as the certain fact that not everyone who took off made it back....


The aircrew of the B-17s invariably wore their issue B3 jackets--utterly distinctive "Redskins" (named after the dye that was applied to the leather) that combined both beauty and function.... although only the latter quality was in anyone's minds when they were made. With their thick, warm sheepskin lining, the oversize collar that could be strapped up over the ears, providing warmth without limiting movement, deeply-cut armholes to facilitate movement and allow layering, and side-straps to ensure that the hem wouldn't catch on anything in the 'plane, these jackets were masterpieces of design.


You almost certainly won't be crewing a Fortress anytime soon--and most definitely won't be unfortunate enough to be crewing one in combat--but the beauty and design of these jackets has led to their enduring appeal, all the more so since they're far more readily adapted to contemporary civilian life than their RAF equivalent, the Irvin. (Another American design, by the way.)

I'm very pleased to have one to offer! Made by Calafate Aviation--a company whose reproduction B3 jackets sit two rungs below the masterpieces of Eastman, and one below their close rivals Aero, but most definitely above the jackets produced by Irvin Leathercraft, Avirex, and the like--this jacket is as close as you'll get to an original B3 without a four-figure outlay, or buying an original.

Cut from supple sheepskin in a browner hue that the originals this has the classic oversize collar and the two functional straps to bring it to a stand around your ears. It has the correct leather stripping throughout on the seams, including the reinforcing "V" on the sides near the adjuster belt straps. The fleece is thick and luxurious--and utterly functional. The interior label and present and correct, and the interior hang-strap is also present and undamaged. The jacket does have some minor cosmetic wear on the underside of one arm, as shown, and a very small seam rip (only about 1") under one arm at the armpit--a very easy fix, even for a local cobbler or leatherworker. It has the same cut and heft as an orignal, so no need to worry at all about layering, or fit! The main zip is a heavy duty YKK which operates beautifully fluidly; all of the other straps are rugged and fully functional. It does differ from the originals in one respect; it has a zip concealed under the collar for an optional hood (not included.)

This jacket is in Very Good/Excellent condition. This is a truly beautiful jacket! Calafates run between $250 and $650 used; I'm asking just $225, OR OFFER, boxed, shipped, and insured in the USA. International inquiries are welcome, with shipping at cost. And offers are VERY welcome!

This is tagged a M; I believe that it would fit a 40 - 42 best. Measurements:

Chest: 24 1/2 (remember, this is a sheepskin jacket, so this figure is higher!)
Sleeve: 36 1/2 (measured as a shirt)
Shoulder: NA
Length: 38 1/2 (measured from the collar seam, not the edge when folded down).
