For Sale:
Winter is Coming! NWT Southwick Harris Tweed Check Jacket 39R (fit 38R)

Will Ship To: CONUS

Great Harris Tweed jacket, half-canvassed and made by Southwick for Epaulet I commissioned during Fall Finds a few years ago. The current price is 10% off the old Fall Find Price which is gone. It's a great deal. I've decided two checked jackets is enough for my winter collection.

 

I will entertain serious and reasonable best offers but please note the already discounted price (if I don't respond, please take that as a decline).

 

This is already a great deal given that the jackets go for around $1000 new.

 

Buyers please have (a) good B&S feedback here or in eBay or (b) an active member in discussion threads.

 

Pic of the colors. Please note pattern matching.

 

 

  • This is a 39R which for me is TTS for a 38R (my size in Eidos) (I found Epaulet's 38R to have slight chest bowing so I had this made one size up)
  • Fabric is a great winter weight. 14oz. Harris tweed (label still on arm). 
  • Fabric is a mix of grey, brown, brick, and a touch of purple. Just a beautiful fabric. It gives impression of a brown or dark taupe from a distance (see pic below)
  • Half-canvased, purple lining.
  • Please see careful pattern matching at shoulder, the nice roll of the lapel because of fabric weight.
  • Best to consider if you know your Southwick sizing in Epaulet's Weller Cut

 

 

 

 

Measurements which seems like a true 38R to me.

 

Shoulder on hanger, seam to seam from back: 17 inches (seems narrow but see pics; I have swimmer's shoulders)

Chest, pit to pit laid flat, second button done: 20.5 inches

Waist at second button: about 18.75 inches

Sleeve, outside, on hanger: about 25 inches

Length BOC on hanger: 29.5

 

For reference, I take a true 38R in Eidos Tipo and in SuSu Jort. I'm about 6 feet tall, and take a 32 inch inseam (to gauge length).

 

Classic proportions.

Incidentally, should you be wondering about a 39 versus a 38. This is me in a 38 of the same Weller cut.

 

Because of this pic, I went up a size to deal with the slight bowing of the lapels which is most visible on the right side lapel (the jacket is wonky for some reason, see the bottom) suggesting a touch tight in the chest. See above pic to see straight as arrow lapels.

 

As I said, the 39 fits me like a 38 Eidos and if you look at the measurements of a 38, it seems a touch tight. In my experience 39 is on me more tts for a 38R.
