Still available, just closed for new arrivals!
Half-canvassed and fully lined, this lovely jacket is cut from Donegal-esque light- to mid-weight tweed, with the classic Donegal colourway of pepper and salt background flecked with gorse yellow, autumn russet, and sky blue.

The colour is the first and most striking thing about this jacket: A wonderful, versatile shade dusty salmon-pink, this is perhaps THE perfect Ivy/preppy shade of pink for men. If this could ever be...

Free range humanely slaughtered chickens can fetch $30 each??? I'm going to have to reconsider my decision not to raise free-range meat birds.....! (Seriously.)
