I'm glad that this thread was started. I am looking for some nice vintage sport coats and I'd much prefer to purchase from someone who is on FL. I looked at TweedyDon's site and need to have the missus measure me. About a dozen years ago I purchased a nice Borsalino from Tango Yankee from FL. He...
