This is lovely! Made by Brooks Brothers at a time when their standard tweeds were beautifully constructed sacks, this is a lovely 3/2 Ivy tweed. It is cut from a mid-weight tweed in a beautiful Glen Plaid pattern, with peat black, beige, and chestnut form the base plaid which is accented with a russet overcheck.
The jacket is half-lined and half-canvassed and has a single center vent. It has two button cuffs--although please note that the left-hand sleeve appears never to have received its second button, as one is missing but there's no sign that it was ever attached! It was Union Made in the USA.
This jacket also has a slight collar creep at the back (easily fixed with proper pressing), and could use a dry-clean to freshen it up. It is thus in Very Good condition, and a bargain at just $39, or offer, boxed, shipped, and insured in the USA.
