WORKWEAR! SUEDE TRUCKER JACKET



Size M. Measurements:

Chest: 23
Sleeve straight down: 24 1/2
Sleeve around curve: 25
Sleeve measured like a shirt: 36
Shoulder: 20 1/2
length (bottom of collar): 24

Normally, I avoid suede jackets as they always strike me as being rather fragile, prone to marking if you look at them askance.... But that's most definitely NOT the case for this jacket!

Made from seriously rugged dark brown suede with cream top-stitching this jacket weighs in at just under 4 1/2 pounds, making this a jacket that's last for years. The dark brown suede of this jacket will just get better with use--and you'll get a LOT of use out of this jacket as it's incredibly comfortable to wear, being lined with flannel-like dark green cotton for ease of wear--especially since the sleeves are also lined in the same material.

Cut as a classic Trucker jacket this features two button-down flapped top chest pockets and two handwarmer pockets lined with brown cotton. It has two lower side adjusters, is secured by stud buttons, and features a zippered security pocket on the interior.

It does have a couple of flaws; it is missing one of the cuff buttons, and it has some sticky residue on the shoulder, and a small patch of the same stuff on the back. I have no idea what this is, but I am confident that it could be removed with cleaning.... Or you could just ignore it! It really doesn't affect the look of the jacket that much, and it's not in an area that you'd ever touch, so you won't notice it much at all.

However, because of this residue this jacket is in (conservatively!) Good/Very Good condition, and so is just $49, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA.

And $49 for a suede Trucker of this quality and heft is a BARGAIN!

CLASSIC L.L.Bean "Flying Tigers" Leather Jacket--with mouton collar!

L.L.Bean's version of the iconic A2--the "Flying Tigers" leather jacket--has now become an iconic piece of clothing in its own right, and this lovely example of the rare mouton-collared, non-shearling lined version shows why.


Cut from incredibly durable and yet exceptionally soft garment-grade goatskin with a wonderful grain this jacket features two deep flapped pockets on the front with side-entry handwarmer pockets built in. The knit hem and cuffs perfectly complement the rich dark brown of the leather, and the mouton collar is beautifully soft and several hues darker than the jacket's shell, complementing it perfectly. The back of this jacket is one whole piece of leather--the more recent jackets consist of several panels. This jacket has a full quilted lining for warmth, and an interior security pocket that secures with a snap.

This jacket is also properly numerically sized (this is a 40L), and was MADE IN THE USA.... the current jackets are "imported".

This does have some minor holes in the hem and cuffs; these have been professionally repaired, as shown. Otherwise, this beautiful jacket is in absolutely excellent condition, and a bargain at

just $65, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA.

Tagged 40L. Measurements:

Chest: 22
Sleeve: 27 1/2 (to end of knit cuff)
Shoulder: 18 1/2
Length: 27 1/4

BEAUTIFUL Vintage Wool Challis Bowtie.

Hand-blocked in England!

The name of wool "challis" is derived from the Hindko term for an especially esteemed variety of soft rice "shallee bara" grown only in the Western Punjab and refers to the lightness and softness of the cloth.

The cloth was especially well suited to be printed with the small multicolored Asian patterns that appeared on the cashmere shawls imported into England from India in the C19th; this pattern was reproduced by the mills in Paisley, Scotland, and from this came to be known as paisley.

Paisley wool challis is thus a lovely example of the intermixing of cultures, with Scots wool mills interacting with Indian techniques and the resulting product--Paisley wool challis--carrying in its name the echoes of Empire!

The printing of this pattern was traditionally done by hand; blocks of wood about 10" square were carved with a design and covered in dye, and then the design was printed onto the cloth by pounding these blocks onto it with a mallet. Since only one color could be used per block this technique had to be repeated for each colour in the pattern--a laborious process that has now been superseded by the use of larger screens instead of small wooden blocks, although the process is stil done by hand.

This vintage bowtie is a lovely example of hand-blocked wool challis being used for clothing where lightweight wool challis is ideal. Adjustable, this is in excellent vinatge condition, with just one tiny pinhole on the reverse.

And at just $16, shipped in the USA, this is an extraordinarily inexpensive way to wear a classic item of clothing whose origins lie in the multicultural mixings of the British Empire!

Please note: Photobucket is now down (AGAIN!) and so pictures of my items are not showing up.

Since this is a recurrent problem despite my having a paid account, what other services to people here use for pictures?
