SIX MORE TWEEDS! c. 38 - 44. Normal Hilton, Korn of Paris and Made in the UK Gunchecks, 3/2 sacks, more!

I have several more lovely jackets to pass on today, including a made in the UK guncheck, a wonderful country tweed from Korn of Paris, as well as some classic vintage 3/2 sacks!

As always, I offer FREE SHIPPING ON EVERYTHING IN THE USA; International inquiries are welcome, with shipping at cost.

Also as always, ALL OFFERS ARE VERY WELCOME!

Please PM with interest and offers!


1) BEAUTIFUL Anglophile Guncheck, Made in France by Korn of Paris!

This is absolutely exquisite! Made in France by Korn of Paris, this is fully canvassed and fully lined, and exemplifies the French love of the upper-class English country look. (The Bon Chic Bon Genre--BCBG--French look draws heavily on the fabrics and colorways on the English upper classes, with gunchecks and windowpanes being perennial favourites!) Cut from a beautiful British country green twill with a complementary windowpane overcheck in rich chestnut and bracken, the patterning and colourway of this wonderful jacket are perfect. It's a contemporary two button model with darting and three button cuffs. It features an Anglophilia twin vent.

Asking just $35, or offer.

Tagged EU 48 (US-UK 38). Measurements:


Chest: 21 1/8
Sleeve: 22 3/4 (+2)
Shoulder: 19 1/4
Length: 29 3/4








2) Lovely British Guncheck, Made in the UK.

This is a lovely, classic English jacket! Made in the UK, this is a traditional guncheck in a medley of bracken, peat black, forest green and moss green, on a traditional tan base. Half-canvassed and fully lined, this is a contemporary two-button front model, with subtle darting and two button cuffs. As you'd expect from an English sporting jacket this has twin vents. It's in absolutely excellent condition.

Asking just $35, or offer.

Tagged 40L, this measures:


Chest: 21
Sleeve: 25 3/4 (+1 3/4)
Shoulder: 18 1/4
Length: 30 3/4








3) CLASSIC IVY/TRAD 3/2 sack tweed from NORMAN HILTON

This is beautiful! Made by Normal Hilton, one of the great trad. clothiers of Princeton, along with Langrock, Ballot, The English Shop, and The Princeton Clothing Co., this is cut from a traditional and classic brown herringbone tweed. IT HAS ALL OF THE TRAD DESIDERATA! This is, first, a tweed 3/2 sack. It also has lapped seams along the sleeves, across the shoulders, and down the centre back, as well as a single hook vent with a lapped seam. It is half lined, and half canvassed. It has two button cuffs; the buttons are all likely horn. It has lovely natural shoulders! It was, of course, Made in the USA!

The interior label has been removed--although it still carries the Hilton label in the inside of the interior pocket--otherwise this is in absolutely excellent condition.

Asking just $39, or offer.

Tagged 42L. Measurements:


Chest: 21 3/4
Sleeve: 25 1/4 (+2 1/4)
Shoulder: 18 1/8
Length: 31 3/4






4) WONDERFULLY TEXTURED DONEGALESQUE TWEED!

This is a wonderfully textured tweed! Cut from a beautifully slubby Donegal-sque cloth, the most striking feature of this tweed is its wonderful texture, reminiscent of dry stone walls in Co. Sligo and the rough-hewn stones of a barn's foundation. The colourway does full justice to the texture; a lovely heathery mix of browns, creams, mochas, and peats. The cut of the tweed matches its casual country texture; two large patch pockets adorn the front, suede elbow patches protect the sleeves, and the buttons are all leather-clad, metal shanked football buttons. It is a contemporary two button front with subtle darting, and was Made in the USA. It's in excellent condition.

Asking just $29, or offer.

Tagged 40R. Measures:


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








5) Classic Brown Herringbone Tweed--with patch pockets!

This is a lovely classic brown herringbone tweed, with the ever-desirable and increasingly rare patch pockets, complete with pocket flaps! This is a contemporary two button front model with subtle darts. It has three button cuffs; all of its buttons are the traditional leather-covered metal-shanked football buttons. It has a single vent, and was, of course, Made in the USA. It's in excellent condition.

This was sold at Maury Robinson's, the upscale clothier in Trenton--when Trenton was itself upscale. Robinson's gained some measure of fame when it managed to "poach" Vincenzo Paxia, one of the better tailors in the area, from Langrock of Princeton! As an aside, Vincenzo is still tailoring, aged 81, from his home in Trenton.

Asking just $25, or offer.

Measurements:


Chest: 21 1/2
Sleeve: 23 1/3 (+ 2 1/4)
Shoulder: 19 1/4
Length: 30







6) WONDERFUL Princeton Clothing Co. 3/2 sack tweed.

Solid colour tweeds are rather rare, and this is a lovely example. Made by The Princeton Clothing Company--one of the traditional Trad. clothiers of the Golden Age of Ivy Style--this has all of the Trad/Ivy desiderata. Cut as a 3/2 sack, it has large, deep, flapped patch pockets on the front, as well as a lapped center seam, and a single hook vent--which also features a lapped horizontal seam! This jacket is half-canvassed and half-lined, and was Union made in the USA in the late 1960s. It has, of course, two button cuffs.

This does have a small blemish--shown--on the bottom edge of the left-hand patch pocket, as shown. Because of this, this is just in Good/Very Good condition, and hence is just $25, or offer.

Measurements:

Chest: 22
Sleeve: 26 1/4 (+2)
Shoulder: 18 3/4
Length: 32

In the interests of marital harmony (and my own self-preservation) I am listing several ties that I have accumulated, many of which were purchased from this very forum. I think that I have worn most of these at least once but I have far too many to keep these in my rotation. They are all wearable in excellent used condition with only a couple of exceptions that are noted. I recall paying roughly $5-10 for most of these so that's all that I am asking.

4) Hardwick

Two tiny holes in back. Not at all noticeable without looking for them, and probably a fairly easy fix for a decent tailor, though I cannot say that for sure. See pictures.

$25




5) No label

Chest: 19
Shoulder: 17
Sleeve: 23.5
Length: 29

Two moth bites on right shoulder. They are fairly noticeable, but this jacket is awesome enough that, were it my size, I would wear the darn thing proudly, sartorial propriety be damned. And perhaps the bites are reparable? I have no idea.

It could also use a good press. The left lapel is wandering.

SOLD

My goal is to list an average of one item a week through year end. These are all from my closet, I just can't justify keeping them when there is no chance they will fit in the next year.

Price includes shipping in CONUS, and I am certainly taking a loss.

Up first:

Brooks Brothers WASH AND WEAR olive sack sport coat. I would love opinions on it's age. I have always thought 60s, but not sure.

I adore this jacket, with it's two cuff buttons, washable fabric, olive color that goes with all my variously coloured khakis plus grey trousers, and most importantly 4 season weight here in the southwest. I used to wear it year round, because the colors work superb for fall and winter, but it is clearly intended as a warmer climate/summer coat. I have another that is almost identical only slightly larger, which I am hanging on to ... for now ... in hopes I will fit back in to it sooner.

SOLD

This is a fantastic tweed sack by Chipp, the classic Ivy tailor. It is perfectly soft and broken in, with that classic soft-shouldered, slouchy, comfortable feel. It's in good shape; there's just a bit of damage to the lining next to an inside pocket, but it's probably wearable as is.

$50 shipped CONUS.

Not even my size but that description had me reaching for the Paypal account. You had me at "slouchy". Very nice sack.

I'll check my closet but the ones that I know I have are, unfortunately, navy.

I too need this size. A classic sack navy blazer would be terrific .... and I could use one tweed ... let us know please.

Up second:

Brooks Brothers Old version 346 glen plaidish 3/2 sack jacket. Wool, dry clean, two sleeve buttons.

I often wore this with dark charcoal slacks, and a light blue sweater over my yellow or pink or white OCBD. Tassle loafers completed the look.

It is old of course, has some wear, notably the sleeve lining appears to be loose on one arm hole. I suspect it was actually always so - although I just now noticed it.

This is tagged a 42L
