Paul Stuart was founded in New York in 1938 by Ralph Oztrove, who named it after his son, Paul Stuart Ostrove. From the start Ralph Ostrove intended the company to specialize in classic haberdashery with uncompromising quality--and in this he most certainly succeeded!
This is a lovely example of Paul Stuart's recent wares. Cut from a beautifully lightweight woolen worsted in minature herringbone, this lovely jacket features a complementary windowpane overcheck in the greenish-brown of sapling bark, and a rich bracken russet.
The cloth is complemented by the classic Anglophilia cut of this jacket; it has a two button front, darting, a twin rear vent, and a fully functional ticket pocket. Naturally, this jacket comes complete with a rear interior strap at the back to endure that the rear vent flaps remain properly closed.
This jacket is fully canvassed, and fully lined. It has four button cuffs, and was Made in Canada.
It is in excellent condition, except for a couple of tiny speckles on the lapel, as shown, which might well be removable by dry cleaning. Given this minor mar thisjacket is an absolute bargain at just $45, or offer, boxed, shipped, and insured in the USA!
