    Anyone have any recommendations on the best quality/value for off the shelf sport coats? Obviously expecting to get them tailored...but I need to expand my SC collection rather quickly, relatively speaking, and can't break the bank. Any recommendations? Many thanks.

    I haven't seen them in person, but Howard Yount's jackets look like a great value too.

    What price point?

    Value can come at any price level.

    I'm cheap as hell, so the cheaper the better but I understand there is a price floor for acceptable quality. I wouldn't want to go over 500 as a maximum. The suit supply price point is ideal.

    Yoox has some nice sportscoats on sale right now. Take a look at their selection of Cantarelli, Caruso, and Boglioli.
