The top line, far photos make it seem "New England Professor". The close-ups seem to reveal an overly large plaid. If you were a Yale professor and wearing this coat, you'd want to keep students away from the lectern. Forum members seem always to be asking opinions about plaids on EBay.

When was the last time you saw someone sporting a sports coat with shirt plus tie and sweater vest to class? Does that even exist anymore? Jon.
