Brooks Brothers Harris Tweed sport coat - new with tags

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I bought this coat from the excellent ebay seller Tarheel this spring. I've come to my senses and realized that while this is a beautiful jacket, it doesn't fit me. My loss is your gain. The same jacket would cost you roughly $500 new from Brooks. It's from the Fall 2005 collection and was made in Italy from genuine Harris Tweed. I'm asking $125, which includes shipping in the US and Canada. I will ship overseas at extra cost. This is a final sale, so let me know if you have any questions. Payment by paypal, check or money order. Size: 38S Chest: 40" Waist: 38" Length: 29.5" from bottom of collar Sleeve: 23" with 1.5" to let out, maybe more, but safely 1.5" The first close-up pictures gives a good sense of the richness in color. It's not quite that bright, though not as dark as the final image. Send me a PM if you are interested.

Price now down to $115. A classic jacket that's going to be perfect for the fall.

Are there no 38Ss who love Harris Tweed like I do? Someone please buy this!

I love it, but am concerned it didn't fit you as a 38s.

I've got a couple HT blazers and they are spot on for me off the rack at 38s.

Was it too tight/loose for you?

I have a high waist, long legs, and long arms. Some shorts fit me very well, but on some, the button stance or length is wrong

On this jacket, the stance was fine, but the sleeves were too short and the jacket was about an inch too short. The sleeves are easily correctable, but it doesn't make sense to pay for the alteration if the rest will still be off.
