Yes; if you're thinking of flipping. As for personal use I see vintage western sportcoats on young hipsters all the time and I think it's a cool look. Just remember the golden rule of western wear: you are allowed to wear a maximum of two pieces at a time. Anything more than that is a costume, or you look like one of the hicks that even the people here in Dallas make fun of.

on ALL Kuhlman suits and sportcoats in a size 46R. It's not Kiton or Brioni but I just absolutely love the look and fit of that stuff. The store here in Dallas lasted less than a year but I bought all that I could afford at the time. I still dream of a 6/3 (!) DB gray suit they sold but never got in my size.

A suit from Anderson & Sheppard, double monk straps in brown, and a pair of alligator shoes are my holy grails. Those are absolutely gorgeous...
PS - the last pair I was watching on eBay eventually went for $358.
