    Very unusual 1941-dated Donegal tweed sportcoat

    A strangely beautiful sportcoat. The button closure is unlike anything I've ever seen on a vintage sportcoat. Looks like a half-breed between a DB and SB jacket. And that fabric is the most amazing multicoloured Donegal I've seen in a long time. I'd definitely wear it!

    Moving the buttons to tighten a jacket doesn't seem to be all that unusual. Only not THAT far. That way it really looks like a DB without the second set of buttons...

    The best thing about that jacket is the fabric anyway. I've been looking for stuff made from similar kinds of fabric for ages.

    I've been waiting 2 months for the seller to send me a leather jacket I purchased from him. He has great clothing, but is highly unreliable to deal with.

    I bought a couple item's from him,
    bad at communication doesnt answer questions,
    careful A lot of his Sleeves are very short.
    & yes its shipped from Australia,
    But he sure does take his time to just get it to the PO.
    But the items were nice that i recieved.
