Made for Boyd's of Philadelphia, one of the few remaining clothing stores that has survived, largely by dint of their superb personal service, this is a lovely example of their current wares--traditional, but with a Continental twist.
Cut from a lovely soft lambswool twill tweed with a subtle pattern of alternating bands of barleycorn weave this features dark red vertical striping and a very subtl;e overcheck in single-thread berry red. This cloth was woven in the British Isles.
The jacket is a contemporary two button model with darting and jetted pockets. It is unvented, half-canvassed, and fully lined. It has metal-shanked buttons, and pick stitching throughout the lining.
It is in excellent condition except that it is missing a single button on the left-hand cuff; this could be easily remedied by converting it quickly to a jacket with two button cuffs!
Asking just $35, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA.
