    Really nice tweed sport coat

    Did someone here win that tweed jacket? I really love the fabric but the thing was too small...

    There's another one up for sale right now that's quite similar, but again not in my size:

    .

    In the vintage dressy menswear scene (what there is of it), pre-1970 tweed suits are very sought-after right now. (Let's all thumb our noses at global warming!) Preferably single-breasted, preferably three-button, and preferably three-piece.

    I was already watching that one. If the seller's measurements are accurate, it should fit me pretty well; the trousers are a little short, but the listing indicates they could be extended by up to two inches. If I win it and it's in good shape, I'll likely sell the jacket I listed above and settle for just the suit.

    I'm just discovering this old style tweed, but I like it, too . . . much more interesting than the more recent Harris and Harris-style tweeds.

    Quite so. I think Marc's got a suit made from a similar tweed fabric. Come to think of it... Marc: I seem to remember that you wanted to post some pics of it...

    Oh well, I wasn't surprised at all when I found out that this one doesn't fit me...
