    I'm looking for a genuine 1930s or 1940s sport coat (belted, pleated back preferred) in a men's size 46 for under 50 dollars. Or alternatively a 1960s-1970s sport coat that is a good copy of a 30s-40s one.

    If I'm nuts for seeking one this old, in this size for this price, tell me.

    You can find them in that range with a bit of patience. Tweedydon always has some nice offerings here, and you can search Etsy and Ebay by typing in "Vintage sports jacket" with your size preference. Again, patience is a virtue. One important factor to take into consideration is smell: if the seller doesn't say anything about it, don't be afraid to email them. I've gotten a couple of items that smelled like a morgue and that I could do nothing with. Good luck.

    I've been searching for a very long time, and I haven't found much in my size, preferred budget and preferred decades. So I see all these amazing sport coats on here and i can only think "how do these people find these things???". Another issue with a lot of things on ebay is that I have no way of verifying the age of a sport jacket just from seeing photos, so I'm hoping somebody on here who knows what they're talking about can help. I'll look up Tweedydon. Thanks!

    Check out TweedyDon he has listings in the Lounge's classified ads. He often has vintage blazers (great quality) and runs an Etsy site as well.
