This jacket was made for Ralph Lauren and was sold under the Polo label. Based upon a 1930s jacket, it is reversible – one side is herringbone wool, the other cotton twill. It is belted back with side adjusters on both sides. The herringbone side has handwarmer pockets and the khaki side has patch pockets. The adjuster belts at the cuffs pass through slits so they are usable on both sides.
Nothing says tropical adventure quite like a pith helmet. This early 1900s example has a beautifully patina-ed sweatband, and wine colored pleated liner. It was originally purchased from William H. Sands in Nassau N.P. Bahamas.
