This jacket is so wonderful it's hard to know where to begin!
Perhaps with its most obvious feature: The absolutely;y beautiful cloth that it is cut from! A wonderful Glen Plaid in the subdued dark forest and loden greens that are so evocative of classic menswear of the 1950s and 1960s (and that are almost never seen today), accented with lighter creamy-brown overchecking, this is a truly beautoful cloth.
The jacket does it full justice. Made for The English Shop of Princeton--one of the Big Five Ivy clothiers in Princeton during The Golden Age--this is cut as a classic 3/2 sack. It is half-canvassed and half-lined in a dark blue-green that perfectly complements the tweed exterior. It has a single rear vent, and two button cuffs. It has very natural shoulders.
All of its buttons are the original 1960s buttons; indeed, with the exception of some minor collar creep (easily fixed) this jacket is in absolutely excellent condition,so much so that it's hard to believe that this is an original early 1960s Ivy jacket!
It was, of course, Union Made in the USA.
A jacket of this quality, in this condition, is rare indeed--and so this is a true bargain at just $49, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA.
