GORGEOUS! Half-belt Shooting Jacket with 3/2 lapel by Polo Ralph Lauren.
Cut from a beautiful honey-coloured mid-wale cord this lovely jacket has all of the features that you'd want in a classic half-belt shooting jacket--and more!
Tagged 42L. Measurements:
Chest: 21 1/2
Sleeve: 25 1/4 (+2)
Shoulder: 19 1/2
Length (BOC): 32
Cut as a 3/2 jacket--although not a sack, as it has the darts appropriate for a shooting jacket--this has two deep flapped front bellows pockets that have reverse box pleats for expansion. The exterior breast pocket is a patch pocket set at a slightly hacking angle; all of the pockets are surrounded by lapped seams.
The jacket features leather elbow patches which have wonderful grain; all of its buttons are the classic leather-covered metal-shanked buttons that are perfect with cord and tweed. This jacket has a fully functional throat latch--and you'll likely use this more than you normally would, as the underside of the collar is finished in a decorative Argyle & Sutherland regimental stripe. (This motif is also featured on the locker loop and the leading edges of the interior pockets.)
The jacket has a single center vent, and a sewn-in half-belt at the rear.
Imported, this is in Very Good/Excellent condition. It does have a minor mark to the lining, as shown, and some very minor sag to the edges of the interior pockets. But neither of these can be seen when worn! Please note that the sleeves were professionally shortened at some point, and so the final button is perilously close to the cuff on each sleeve! This could easily be fixed by removing them and using them as spares.
Asking just $49, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA.
