I'm always hoping of finding a similar, but double breasted, jacket. Possibly without elbow patches.

I cam across a couple of old Donegal Tweed suits with patches on the elbows. Are the worth anything. I seem to remember last fall someone had a suit that went for some crazy money on teh bay. Please advise.

I have a pair of New Balance Minimus, and they have Vibram soles as well. I absolutely love that shoe for damn near everything but basketball. I had to size up two sizes as I use the Experian socks.

Boom! Hidden placket shirts are -- in the parlance of the streets -- the tits.

Besides Harris, Donegal is one of the only other high end (or any end for that matter?) tweed manufacturers as far as I know. As some of the guys noted a while ago, some low end makers use Harris Tweed and I assume this applies to Donegal as well. If they're not dated, I'm sure you could turn a decent profit selling to some hipster/professor/SF lurker on the bay. If any are Donegal "Mist" (mohair, wool and cashmere blend) definitely pick it up - I have a J Press sports coat in that fabric and its hand is fantastic.

Nothing great for me today, but a rare find size wise - 36s blazer. From Nordstrom's, so quality is poor and it has a very American shoulder, but one can never have too many navy blazers.

Almost new Orvis dirty bucks in 11.5 - Available

Military-esque J Peterman jacket in 38R - Available - Does anyone know why their sizing runs huge?

Unfortunately unlike Harris Tweed, Donegal is not a protected name. Anyone can call whatever they make Donegal tweed, and many Chinese manufacturers have been. One actual Irish weaver in Donegal to look out for is Magee. Their tweed is very nice (I like it better than almost all the Harris Tweed I've seen). Unfortunately it doesn't flip as well as Harris, but if you're looking for yourself it's good quality.

Actually tried walking in one pair, very dangerous.

Dude, THAT is what you get for thrifting in Montana. WTF? They have, like, cowchip sculpture there
