    I have too many shooting jackets so I've got to get rid of one.

    Vintage British Heavy Tweed Shooting Jacket:
    44-46
    Chest: Measured Flat pit to pit: 25”
    Shoulder from seam to seam: 21”
    Sleeve: 25”
    Length from bottom collar to hem: 32”

    Heavy green tweed with faint orange windowpane overlay. Made in England by RH Mears Ltd. New Tweed woven by P&J Haggart Ltd in Aberfeldy Scotland. Yellow lining. Leather buttons (some not exactly the same in color so probably are replacements).
    This has all the bells and whistles that you want in a shooting coat: throat latch and button for closing the jacket up to your neck. Big box pockets with flaps that button both down shut and then up so you can reach in to pull our cartridges while on your peg. Half belted back with both side should pleats and a central back pleat for total freedom of movement on those high pheasants.

    Some issues/wear and tear. There are a few small repaired holes on the rear skirts of the jacket, but given the texture of the tweed its not very visible. Lining is old and has some stretching at the center of the back (see photo), also some additional lining (in blue not sure why they picked that color...) was added to the bottom (last photo). There is a patch repair to the bottom of the right box pocket but its not visible (see second to last photo).

    $150 including shipping in the US. Will ship international for actual costs (I imagine given the weight of the tweed something like $180 or so). PM for details.
