NWT Gucci Tie

A lovely--and for once wearable!--Gucci tie, featuring pennants (golf? yachting?) with a very discreet Gucci logo between regimental stripes. Made in Italy. 3 1/2".

This comes with its original hang-tag, and is in excellent condition--although please note that it does have a small wrinkle right at the tip, which will likely be readily removed with pressing or steaming.

The original retail was $210--so how about $25, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA?

1953 British Civil Defense Beret

Interior circumference: 21

This is wonderful! Britain's Civil Defense Corps was a non-military organization that was founded in 1949 to be mobilized in the event of a major national emergency, with nuclear war being anticipated as the primary threat. The Corps was stood down in mainland Britain in 1968.

The black beret was standard issue, and this is a lovely example. Made in 1953 by Beret Industries--the largest wartime supplier of berets to the British military--this hat is in absolutely excellent condition, with its interior printed designation being bright and clear. It also features the Broad Arrow of the Ministry of Defence!

Made from wool, this has an interior sweat band.

This beret is in such good condition it is likely that it was never worn; indeed, it's in better condition than the Civil Defense beret held by The Imperial War Museum in London!

This is a bargain at just $27, or offer, shipped in the USA.

BUMP - Make me an offer, these will be going to eBay soon.

Three pair of M2 Bills Khakis, new with tags, two 34 and one 32. These are pre-aquisition Bills I've had hanging in my closet for years, but no amount of wishing is ever going to make these work for me. The 34's fit in the waist but are too baggy in the butt and legs, the 32's fit the butt and legs but are way too snug in the waist. Just the reality of navigating my sixth decade I guess. Just want to get back what I have in these, so $60/pair shipped conus, or make an offer.

1. Bills Khakis Vintage Twill in British Khaki, new with tags, size 34x34. M2, flat front, 7.8 ounce (heavy) cotton twill.

2. Bills Khakis Vintage Twill in Olive, new with tags, size 34x34. M2, flat front, 7.8 ounce (heavy) cotton twill.

3. Bills Khakis Vintage Twill in Mustard, new with tags, size 32x34. M2, flat front, 7.8 ounce (heavy) cotton twill. These are a true mustard color, they appear more Khaki in the photos.

Bump. I'm open to offers.

Almost new Kamakura pinpoint oxford. Size 15.75/32.33 in the Tokyo Classic fit. I’ve worn it once. It has been washed twice in cold water and hung to dry. It is a nice shirt but the fit just isn’t going to work.

The color is a blue-green or maybe sage. I’m not good with colors. One pic shows it with a blue end-on-end shirt.

Asking $50 shipped CONUS.

GRAIL! Andover Shop 3/2 sack in Camelhair


Tagged 40L, this lovely jacket measures:

Chest: 21
Sleeve: 26 1/8 (+1 1/4)
Shoulder: 17 3/4
Length: 31

As you'd expect from The Andover Shop this is absolutely beautiful! Cut as a classic 3/2 sack from first-rate camelhair, this has a lovely fluid lapel roll and beautifully narrow lapels--as befits a jacket that likely dates from the 1960s.

It is fully canvassed and half-lined, and features lapped seams across the shoulder and down the center back. It has a single rear hook vent, and two button cuffs. Naturally, it has very natural shoulders. It is a vintage jacket, and has some minor fading from age in the lining of the arms, as shown, and so it is in Very Good/Excellent condition.

This also has a MYSTERY LABEL!

It states that The Andover Shop has four locations: Hyannis, Osterville, Fort Lauderdale, and Palm Beach. There is no mention of either Andover, Mass., or Cambridge, Mass.--as far as I know the only locations that The Andover Shop has ever been. And it's very unlikely that this jacket is from another "The Andover Shop". Not only is the logo that of THE Andover Shop, but this jacket is so quintessentially Ivy it really couldn't have been sold anywhere else.

Hyannis, Osterville, Fort Lauderdale, and Palm Beach are all Ivy bastions.... So it is quite possible that during the heyday of Ivy Style The Andover Shop had the 1960s equivalent of "pop up" locations in appropriately Ivy stores in those towns--and this jacket was sold in one. And given that this is the first time I have seen a label like this in all my years of enjoying vintage Ivy items I suspect that this was a very short-lived retail experiment.

This might be one of the few chances left to secure an item from The Andover Shop. The Shop is currently for sale, and might well close.

Asking just $59, OR OFFER, boxed and shipped in the USA.

GRAIL! Stunning Cashmere 3/2 jacket.
Dated November 4, 1960.



Made By "Rogers Peet x Marston"!

I have information about both Rogers Peet and Marston on my Facebook page, WaterhollowTweed!

Tagged 42L. Measurements:

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

This is absolutely gorgeous, and in simply incredible condition!

Long before companies realized the marketing advantages of collaborating with "heritage" menswear brands ("Land Rover x Barbour", "Levis x Filson", and so on) there was a groundbreaking collaboration between Rogers Peer--the preeminent upscale department store of New York City--and Marston, its West Coast equivalent.

Although this collaboration was not heralded with press conferences at hooplah--neither the old-money Rogers Peet nor the civic-minded George Marston would have even considered something so vulgar--the wealthy denizens of San Diego did take notice when they saw in the labels of the clothing they were considering not just one, but two, of the most prominent names in upscale retail. And what cool Californian wouldn't want something from Rogers Peet in their wardrobe--especially when visiting the actual store wouldn't be at all easy, or cheap!

This jacket is one of the few surviving items from that historic collaboration... and given its incredible quality both Rogers Peet and Marston's would be proud that its survived to show the quality of their joint wares.

Although there is no fabric content listed this is clearly cashmere--and not the thin stuff so widely available in malls today, but the seriously soft and luxurious cashmere of the middle of last century. And the patterning and colourway are just as remarkable as the softness of the cloth; a wonderful shepherds' check in peat black, midnight blue, with chestnut accents. beautiful--and utterly mid-century.

The jacket does full justice to the cloth. Cut as a 3/2 jacket with an exceptionally elegant lapel roll, this is half-lined in striped lining to complement the cloth, and is fully canvassed. It has a single center vent. It also has three patch pockets--all of which are fitted with center reverse pleats, both for function and style.

Naturally, this jacket was Union Made in the USA.

less naturally for a jacket that was made on November 4th, 1960, this is in incredible condition. I am very conservative in grading vintage pieces, and so would never call one Mint--but this comes very close, and is in absolutely excellent condition. It was clearly worn sparingly, if at all.... Maybe it was even bought as a souvenir of the Peet x Marston collaboration.

One thing that is bittersweet is the date--November, 1960. Within a year of this jacket's being finished and sent West Marston's was no more.

This is a true Grail item--but one that is utterly wearable. A contemporary jacket of this quality would retail on the secondary market for quite a bit; a jacket with this history far more. So, it's hard to price this... But since my approach here has always been to price items so that even I, a very frugal buyer, would be very pleased with the bargain, how about just $75, or offer, boxed, shipped, and insured in the USA?

A piece of sartorial history for less than the cost of a used recent jacket from Brooks on the 'bay! :)

GORGEOUS Paul Stuart Herringbone Tweed Overcoat!
CLAIMED!



This is absolutely stunning--a true Ivy classic!

Tagged 40 Tall. Measurements:

Chest: 22 1/8
Sleeve: 26 3/4 (+1 3/4)
Shoulder: 18 3/4
Length: 45

This is absolutely beautiful! Cut from wonderful thick heavy warm tweed in broad black-and-white herringbone this lovely coat is cut as an utterly traditional Anglophile overcoat.... Given both the cloth and the cut this coat could easily have been made any time from the Roaring Twenties to now!

This coat has a three button closure at the front with a traditional concealed placket to preserve its elegant silhouette when worn; the small lowest button is for use with the short tweed closure strap (similar to a throat latch) located on the interior of the coat to make sure that you can secure the lower flap if desired.

Given its Anglophile heritage this coat features a fully functional flapped ticket pocket in addition to the traditional two deep flapped pockets and the upper breast pocket; all of the pockets are lined in sturdy cotton duck. The coat is fully canvassed and fully lined, and features a single center vent. In addition to the deep interior breast pocket for your wallet is also features a wide and deep map pocket on the lower interior left. The cuffs are finished with four buttons, and the original hanger loop is intact and clearly unused.

This coat would be perfect paired with everything from charcoal flannels and an odd tweed jacket, to cords and a tattersall waistcoat or a heavy Aran sweater, to a pinstripe suit! It would be perfect worn with a traditional college scarf from Luke Ayres of England, or, if you didn't attend a suitable college, a tartan cashmere scarf.

This wonderful coat was Union Made in Canada expressly for Paul Stuart.

It is in overall excellent condition--but it does have a couple of (very) minor flaws. First, there is some minor discoloration at the fold of the collar--this is very minor, and I didn't see it until I examined the collar close-up in bright sunlight. (I couldn't capture this in my photographs, although I've included the picture where I tried!) But, it is there! Second, there is a very small rip in the lining in the back shoulders, perhaps 1 1/2" long--I could have this sewn closed free of charge if you'd like! And, finally, there is some minor collar creep, with the collar sliding up at the back... although this could be considered an insouciant feature rather than a bug, and, if desired, could be cured by sympathetic pressing.

The closest item that Paul Stuart currently offers is their "Brown Houndstooth Raglan Overcoat", which is a blend of wool (85%), polyester, silk, and linen... and which retails at $3,995. (But, don't worry, they'll give you just under $1000 off today as it's Cyber Monday!) Frankly, this coat is superior to that one... But it would still never have been worth almost $4000 even new!

But it most certainly is worth $175, OR OFFER, boxed, shipped, and insured in the USA!





As the purchaser, I wanted to follow up and do two things (1) show a pic of the coat that I just got back from the tailor (I had the sleeves shortened a touch and the coat cleaned - as TweedyDon suggested it needed, the collar came clean) and (2) pay a much, much deserved compliment to Tweedy for being such a professional and gentleman.

The coat was exactly as he described with every modest flaw pointed out by Tweedy in his original post. Also, our communication and his followup was pleasant and proactive. I can only encourage everyone to keep an eye on his offerings and to not hesitate to purchase from him.

⇩ Me in the nicest overcoat I've ever owned and that includes Burberry, Brooks Brothers and Polo ones:
