    All of them are late 60's to 70's.

    The gray one is useable for a 30's look.

    Something similar was popular in the 1930s, called "Tweederoy".

    Here's another beltback.

    I picked up this 70s (?) bold herringbone belt-back jacket in a local charity shop a few days ago. It's not my favourite style and I wouldn't normally pick up a wool/poly-blend (80% wool and 20% polyester), but it's in perfect condition and only cost 50 SEK (~£3.8) so what the heck... It will fit perfect after some small adjustments.

    I will probably replace the buttons and remove the elbow patches.

    In my opinion wool blends are acceptable as long as they are predominantly wool. Nice pockets on this one.

    Great score Papperskatt. The tweed is lovely, and the jacket feels pretty timeless. Well worth the minuscule price.

    Thanks. Yeah, I couldn't really pass it up. I first saw the front and with those pockets I just knew that it must have a belt-back.

    Interestingly it was placed among the women's jackets; in fact it was the only male jacket in the entire shop. I might go back some day and ask if the have some other male stuff not on display.

    A while ago I saw another 70s belt-back in another local shop. It's a larger size (maybe 40-42" chest) and that's why I didn't buy it. If anyones interested I might go back and see if it's still there.
