BEAUTIFUL Barleycorn-esque tweed with vertical striping! Half-canvassed. c. 38. JUST $25 shipped!

BEAUTIFUL Barleycorn-esque tweed with vertical striping! Half-canvassed. c. 38. JUST $25 shipped!

At first, I thought that this was clearly a Harris tweed--the colourway, patterning, heft and slight hariness as indicated Harris! But, it's not marked as such, as so it seems that it's not--although the quality of the cloth certainly rivals (and even exceeds) that of most Harris being produced today.

Despite not being Harris this tweed is wonderful! It's a lovely complex weave that's similar to barleycorn, although considerably more heathery. It features very subtle vertical striping in chestnut and sky blue, which are also heathered into the base tones of the jacket. There is also flecking of light pale lichen green.

The jacket itself is a contemporary two button model with subtle darts; it has three button cuffs. All of the buttons are leather-covered and metal shanked. The jacket appears to be half-canvassed, and is half-lined; it has a single centre vent. It's in excellent condition, except for a tiny weave fault in the crease where the sleeve joins the shoulder. This is very close to the seam, and so cannot be seen when worn; indeed,it can only really be seen when the sleeve is placed vertically above the jacket--a stance you'll never be in unless you're an acrobat and intend to wear this jacket while performing. (I found it when measuring, which is when the sleeves are moved upwards in this unnatural way.) You'll likely have never found this flaw, but it is there, and so this is in very Good/Excellent condition--and a steal at just $25, or offer.

This is a bargain for a jacket like this!
