TWEEDFEST 2018 CONTINUES!

30) GRAIL! Heavyweight Harris Tweed Jacket.



Woven by Kenneth Mackenzie

Size c. 40R/L. Measurements:

Chest: 21
Sleeve: 26 1/2 (+1 1/2)
Shoulder: 19
Length: 32

This jacket is absolutely GORGEOUS--Harris Tweed as it is meant to be! Weighing in at just under 2 1/2lbs, this beautiful jacket is cut from the most traditional Harris Tweed fabric woven today--the thick, heavy, slightly rough Harris Tweed produced by the Kenneth Mackenzie in Stornoway.

Kenneth Mackenzie was founded in 1906--three years BEFORE the institution of The Harris Tweed Authority. Since they pre-date the HTA and its "Orb" logo Kenneth Mackenzie is the only mill to eschew the HTA label on its cloth, instead affixing their own label identifying the fabric as Harris Tweed. (Although they do have the cloth stamped with the Orb logo.) This serves to identify their cloth as the most traditional Harris Tweed.... and hence items made from it as being cut from precisely the same cloth as that which was made before the First World War.

And not only is this jacket cut from Kenneth Mackenzie cloth--it is a beautiful *almost* solid colour, being a wonderful heathery mix of dusky greys, charcoals, and creams, presenting the rich and varied texture of a Scottish hillside. This is what Harris Tweed does best!

This jacket does full justice to the heavyweight cloth that it is cut from. Beautifully tailored, this is a contemporary two-button model with subtle darts. It features the traditional leather-covered, metal-shanked "football" buttons, and has a single rear vent. It is half-canvassed, and fully lined in a beautoful Royal Blue lining that is the perfect complement to the colouring of the cloth.

This jacket was tailored and sold in Israel by the Polgat Company, as the top of the line garment for their "Adult" range of men's wear. (The label is in Hebrew.) This provenance is perfectly suited for a traditional Harris Tweed jacket of this quality--after all, it was Jewish tailoring that both made Ivy Style what it is (through Chipp, J. Press, Martin Greenfield, and others) and (through Ralph Lauren) popularized it into its preppy variant!

This jacket appears unworn; it is in mint condition.

As such, this is an absolute bargain at just $60, or offer... And if this is in your size grab it, as Mackenzie Harris jackets don't come along often, and almost never in this condition!

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

31) ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS!



Italian Guncheck Tweed Jacket in Loro Piana wool and cashmere.

Tagged EU 52R (US 42R) this fits closer to a 40R.

Chest: 20 3/4
Sleeve: 24 3/4 (+1)
Shoulder: 19 1/2
Length: 30 1/4

This is absolutely beautiful! Cut from a wonderfully soft and luxurious (yet hard-wearing) blend of cashmere and wool from Loro Piana, the patterning and colourway of this jacket is a wonderfully Italian take on a classic British guncheck: a barleycorn weave with overchecking in early-autumn bracken and burnished chestnut.

Like the fabric it is cut from the jacket is an Italian twist on a British classic with the three button front and twin vents of a hacking jacket, but with a softer cut as befits its Italian origin--although it retains its British military shoulders. The three buttons on each cuff are *just* kissing, and rest on faux buttonholes in the British style. The jacket is darted, fully lined, and half-canvassed. It is in excellent condition, apart from a small ink stain on the inside of one of the interior pockets!

Asking just $45, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA.

32) BEAUTIFUL Vintage Mavest Jacket in Autumnal Glen Plaid!



NB: You can find a lot more information about Marvest on my Facebook page, WaterhollowTweed!
c. 40. Measurements:

Chest: 20 7/8
Sleeve: 24 3/4 (+2)
Shoulder: 17 1/2
Length: 30 1/2

Dating from Mavest's heyday during the 1960s, this jacket shows just why they were so successful--and it wasn't just the construction or the price!

The tweed of this jacket is absolutely beautiful; a wonderful autumnal mix of light moss green, rich chestnut, and bracken, on a dark cream base. Lovely! And, as you'd expect from a company that paid careful attention to the cut and construction of its garments the pattern matching on this jacket is meticulous--just look at the craftsmanship that went into making sure that the back of the jacket is so aesthetically pleasing! And, of course, as you'd expect from a jacket whose construction was intended to make it lighter and easier to wear--an effect that was in line with the prevailing Ivy Style--this has very natural shoulders.

The jacket is cut as a two button front jacket with subtle darts, and the (patented) slight curvature at the side seams to provide the jacket with the fullness that would otherwise be secured through full canvassing. The jacket is half-canvassed and half lined, and has a single center vent.

It was originally sold by Strawbridge Clothiers--in the 1960s a more affordable Trad alternative to Langrock and The English Shop. It was made from American wool in the USA. It is in absolutely excellent condition!

Asking just $45, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA.

33) BEAUTIFUL Vintage 3/2 Tweed Sack from Wm. H. Wanamaker's of Philadelphia.


Tagged 40R. Measurements:

Chest: 20 3/4
Sleeve: 24 1/4 (+2)
Shoulder: 17 3/4
Length: 29 1/2

This is absolutely beautiful! It was made for Wm. H. Wanamaker of Philadelphia--the extremely upscale menswear store that was founded by the brother of John Wanamaker, the founded of Wanamaker's department store in Philadelphia. The maker was Palm Beach--a brand name of the Goodall Co., a Maine-based clothing manufacturer that was founded in 1931, and that started life making very traditional and upscale clothing--as this jacket attests!

Cut as a classic 3/2 sack from beautiful dark brown herringbone tweed with vertical striping in chestnut and pale green lichen, this is fully canvassed and half-lined. It has a single center hook vent and two-button cuffs. It was, of course, Union made in the USA and is in excellent condition!

34) GORGEOUS English hacking jacket in Heavyweight Nailhead Tweed.

CLAIMED!




Tagged 46R. Measurements:

Chest: 24 1/2
Sleeve: 26 3/4 (+2 1/8)
Shoulder: 20 3/4
Length: 32 1/8

Made in England by Christopher Dawes Country Clothing.

This is absolutely beautiful! Until it went into receivership in 1998 Christopher Dawes made absolutely first-rate British Country Clothing (they used to supply Harrods with their country clothing for the British upper classes, back when Harrods still served the British upper classes!) and this jacket is a wonderful example of their craft!

The tweed that this jacket is cut from is a traditional heavyweight tweed designed for hard field use. It is also a beautiful and rare nailhead, with burnished chestnut brown and forest green accenting the charcoal and cream base. Absolutely lovely--and utterly British.

The cut and construction do full justice to the cloth. This is a perfect example of a British hacking jacket; slanted hacking pockets, a fully functional (and hacking) ticket pocket, a three button front, a single center vent, and single button cuffs--the giveaway of a truly traditional British country jacket. This jacket also has a fully functional bi-swing back for ease of movement, either when riding horses or tracking grouse across the sky with your shotgun. The jacket is fully canvassed and fully lined, and apart from the tiniest hint of a fray--literally, merely a hint!--in the lining is in absolutely excellent condition.

It was, of course, Made in England, and is just $65, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA.

35) VINTAGE Anglophile Hacking Jacket from Zachary All of the "Miracle Mile", Los Angeles, Calif.


(The dappling on the jacket is just evening sunlight filtered through a century-old mulberry tree!)

NB: More information on Zachary All can be found on my Facebook page, WaterhollowTweed!

c. 42, 44. Measurements:

Chest: 22 1/4
Sleeve: 25 (+2)
Shoulder: 19
Length: 30 1/2

A truly lovely jacket, this is modeled on a traditional British hacking jacket, with its twin vents, slanted hacking pockets, slanted (and fully functional) ticket pocket, and wonderful checking and colourway in a medley of bracken, moss green, and lichens!

It is half-canvassed and half-lined, and was Union made in the USA for Zachary Hall--a store founded in the 1950s and that became so famous in Los Angeles for its television commercials that they inspired Frank Zappa's song "Eddie are you kidding?" (Eddie was the owner of the store, and rhetorically asked himself that question on behalf of his friends owing to his low prices!)

This lovely jacket thus carries with it a small part of Los Angeles history. But, more than that, it's a lovely gem of a jacket that is ready to give you many years of tweedy Anglophilic service!

This has some minor wear to the lining, as shown, and could use a dry clean to freshen it up. It is thus in Very Good condition.

Asking just $39, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA.

This is wonderful! Cut from a beautiful and unusual blue-grey herringbone tweed this is a classic 3/2 sack from Huntington, one of the great Ivy clothiers.

And, of course, two button cuffs!

It was, of course, Made in the USA--and it is in absolutely excellent condition!

This is a rare larger size, so if this beauty would fit you, I'd advise you to move quickly!

This is a lovely tweed from Polo University! Cut from a classic brown herringbone tweed with subtle burnt orange, Spring green, and sky blue overchecking this is a contemporary two-button model with subtle darts. Featuring a single center vent, this is fully lined.

There is a small weave fault on the lapel (there since new!) and a small minor fray in the lining (not there since new!) and so this is in Very Good condition.

38) BEAUTIFUL Polo "Blue Label" 3/2 unstructured tweed jacket.



Made in Italy.

Tagged 42R. Measurements:

Chest: 21 1/2
Sleeve: 24 (+2 1/4)
Shoulder: 19
Length: 30 1/2

Made in Italy by Corneliani for Polo Blue Label (not to be confused with the regular Polo line!) this lovely unstructured jacket blends the casual elegance of Italian style with the Anglophilia of American Ivy, resulting in a beautifully elegant and utterly wearable tweed!

As you'd expect from Corneliani this is a lovely unstructured tweed cut from a beautifully soft cloth with a wonderful hand and drape. As is appropriate for a more unstructured garment this is quarter-lined (the lining features hand-made pick stitching) and beautifully made. It has very subtle darts at the front, and a wonderfully liquid elongated lapel curve like a breaking wave on the beach of Salento.

The jacket has two open patch pockets and a beautifully slanted patch breast pocket. Apart from some very minor sag to the edges of the interior pockets--which doesn't affect their function at all, and can't be seen when worn--and a small wrinkle on the breast pocket (easily fixed with a press!) this is in absolutely excellent condition.

Costing a fortune when new, this is a bargain at just $65, or offer, boxed, shipped, and insured in the USA.

c. 44, 46. Measurements:

Founded in 1921, Van Boven is one of the few traditional clothiers that is still going strong--and they still purvey classic Ivy items such as this lovely 3/2 sack in dark brown herringbone tweed!

Although this presents as a dark brown herringbone tweed closer inspection reveals that this is in fact a wonderful medley of dark chestnut brown, lichen greens, and earthy black. Cut as a 3/2 sack with a high lapel roll this lovely jacket is half-canvassed and half-lined, and features a single center vent. It has three button cuffs, and was Union Made in the USA.

42) Fully Custom Tailored, Hand-made Jacket

Waist at top button: 18 1/2
Waist at bottom button: 20 1/4
Shoulder: 18 1/2
Length: 30 1/2

This is absolutely lovely--and with its combination of burnt orange, blacks, and creams with a subtle pumpkin overcheck this has the perfect colourway for Hallowe'en!

Made by the fully-custom Italian tailor Vittorio Castagna of 17th Street, Philadelphia, this is likely made from a mid-heavyweight blend of silk and wool. It is cut as a contemporary two-button jacket It features slanted hacking pockets on the front, a double vent, and three button cuffs. It is fully canvassed and fully lined.

This jacket is fully hand-made, with everything from the pattern cutting to the construction being done by hand in the tailoring rooms of 17th Street, Philadelphia. As such, it is cut to exaggerate the chest of the wearer and provide a very Italian silhouette--so the waist is deliberately tapered inwards with the lower part of the jacket being slightly flared.

Apart from some very minor age foxing to the lining this is in absolutely excellent condition!

Asking just $45, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA--an absolute steal for a fully hand-made jacket!
