This is absolutely beautiful! It was made for Wm. H. Wanamaker of Philadelphia--the extremely upscale menswear store that was founded by the brother of John Wanamaker, the founded of Wanamaker's department store in Philadelphia. The maker was Palm Beach--a brand name of the Goodall Co., a Maine-based clothing manufacturer that was founded in 1931, and that started life making very traditional and upscale clothing--as this jacket attests!
Cut as a classic 3/2 sack from beautiful dark brown herringbone tweed with vertical striping in chestnut and pale green lichen, this is fully canvassed and half-lined. It has a single center hook vent and two-button cuffs. It was, of course, Union made in the USA and is in excellent condition!
Asking just $45, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA.
