Thanks for the help.
I'm in need of some advice/direction with respect to a Brooks Brothers sport coat.   I've come across a new Brooks Brothers jacket on offer but have been unable to determine the quality and construction based on the label. I would greatly appreciate any thoughts.    
I recently had some reweaving (technically over weaving I believe) done on a wool navy sports coat which had sustained a small (pencil eraser sized) tear to the upper part of the left arm sleeve. I've never had this type of work done, and in fairness I may have had unreasonably high expectations giving some results pictures I had seen here and on other forums, but I feel somewhat less than satisfied with the results (poor quality picture included). My questions are: 1) is...
I would also accept a Charles Tyrwhitt gift card or merchandise credit of equivalent value as that is all I am after ultimately.
No, not expressly at least. General consensus in these pages seems to be that the groomsmen needn't (and indeed shouldn't) match as Ken dolls adorned with the chosen accessories of the bride. Instead the groom and his men should endeavor to dress as individuals, albeit within the sartorial confines of solemn tradition and befitting the occasion. I agree with this, at least in principle.

Okay so I found a website with the history of the ACWA Union tag in the coat which would place the coat between 1962 and 1976. It looks like a quality piece but I'm really no expert (hence my posting here). So, can anyone provide additional insight, maybe an educated guess as to the company (or companies) they might have produced for in those years?
I'm considering this overcoat (at a lower price) and was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on the quality and perhaps even insight into the maker (the seller said there are no brand identifying marks). Thanks in advance for any and all assistance.
