Quality Tweed sport coat?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I'm looking for a tweed sport coat in the $300 range for this weekend. I don't have time to go to high end outlets as they are too far away. I'm thinking of just seeing if Nordstrom Rack has anything good and if they don't, I'll just go to Banana Republic. Any other suggestions on a particular brand that makes a coat in that price range that has decent to good quality for the price?

I just picked up this Harris Tweed one at BB for about $320 at a sale they had a couple of weeks ago and it is quite nice and very thick tweed with a very slim fit. I don't know why BB puts plastic buttons on $600 sport coats but brought in my own buttons (blue horn) and they changed them out for $5. The blue one is also quite nice and I almost went with that but decided I have too many blue jackets

I know it is twice the price you want to pay, but sales run rampant this time of year and if you do it right you can get a much better jacket for the price of a BR.

Edit: I just re-read and saw that you need it for this weekend so JCrew may be your best bet as I saw a decent one there.

That BB jacket looks very nice. I'll have to keep an eye out for it when they have their Christmas sale. I'll check out JCrew (have never bought anything from them in the past). Thanks.

This one fits your budget and will be cheaper with any sale. FYI, if you have a teacher or student ID, you get 15% off anytime at JCrew:

Their Harris Tweed jackets are $550 so you may as well go to BB when they have one of their 30% or 40% off sales.
