Question for fashion historians and also tailors. I've recently bought a vintage Harris Tweed jacket for my wife, online. She's got it today, and sent me a photo. One thing the vendor failed to mention is, that although this is very definitely a woman's jacket, feminine cut, woman's sizing etc... the buttons are as a man's jacket. It buttons left over right.

I have Loake Strand, and Hyde, both on the Capital last, and both in 7F, and recently got suede Burford boots on the 024, also in 7F.First thing I'd say is that the Hydes are roomier.
