I suppose that everyone can get really, really involved in the fused vs canvased debate to decide wheather to buy a particular jacket. Â I don't look at the odd, hairy, rough Â Harris, Donegal, or Manx tweed jacket in exactly the same way. I'm first looking for a very distinctive cloth that I like very much. Â Then a "reputable" maker. Â The one Magee jacket I have seems to be well done with attention to the details. Â The fabric is so heavy and substantial that I don't really think the fusing / canvasing issue about drape, shape, or bubble Â will really come into play. Â In this case, I'm more concerned that the construction will hold up as long as the fabric will wear. I've purchased a couple from Bookster1 on Ebay - after finding a recommendation for him on either here on SF or AA. Â They know what they are doing and can answer your questions about the fabric and garment quality. Â But look closely for plad matches. Â All the offerings were not for me. Â But watch the listings for a month or so and you will see some fine ones. Â Certainly there are fabric styles and jacket styles rarely seen today in the RTW clothing here in the US. Â You can be the owner of something rather traditional, distinctive and unique for less than $100, after tailoring. However, If you are looking for a light weight, fine, smooth tweed, you may have other considerations. Â Someone else will have to give their evaluation of magee in relation to that.
