Chipp were THE Ivy Style tailors of the Golden Era, not only dressing luminaries such as JFK and Wilt Chamberlain, but inventing many of the clothing items that are now regarded as Ivy staples.
I'm thus delighted to offer this absolutely gorgeous Chipp 3/2 sack jacket is incredibly luxurious cashmere!
Chipp's products are invariably absolutely first rate, and this beautiful cashmere 3/2 sack is no exception. Cut from pure cashmere--and not the thin mall stuff that's so common nowadays, but the wonderfully rich and soft cashmere that earned this cloth its reputation--in a lovely tan and cream chevron weave, this jacket is cut as a classic 3/2 sack. It is fully canvassed and fully lined, and has lapped seams across the shoulders and down the center back. It features two button cuffs and a single center vent. It was, of course, Made in New York.
It does have one small issue; the jetted pockets have started to sag slightly on the leading edge, as can be seen in the pictures. This could be rectified either by pressing, or, perhaps, by pressing and then basting shut to retain their shape. This is a common problem with jetted pockets, especially in fabrics such as cashmere, and has a ready fix because of this this jacket is in Very Good/ Excellent condition, and hence is a steal at just $65, OR OFFER, boxed and shipped in the USA.
Since this originally retailed for around $2,000 (in 1980s dollars, too!) this is an absolute BARGAIN for a true piece of Ivy Style history!
