    Would love one of them in a 36S If you can get your hands on one! Curious to see how the quality is compared to one of my other Harris tweed sports coats.

    I am interested. Specifically the style/color you purchased. 42L available at the store?

    They jackets run big and long, so a 40R would likely fit you.

    Hmmmm. I don't know. Everthying otr has to be 42L for me. Regs rarely get my arm length correct. This sucks, as I want to see one in person. Checked 7 wal-marts locally(mostly through calls) to no avail. Even gave SKU numbers. Arizona...far from fashion.

    Damnit. Thanks man. Appreciate the try. And hope others can make use of your generous offer to proxy. My search for a Brown tweed SC continues.

    I'm not sure. The last box left a bad taste in my mouth. (Pun intended)

    Just saw several 38R Harris Tweed jackets at the local Wal-Mart. They had two colors- grey and a kind of rose colored tweed. Might get one for myself today.

    What do you mean by "proxying these"?

    To purchase and ship item to others who cannot find/obtain such item locally. Usually for a fee.

    You want me to check for a 42L for you? I wouldn't charge a fee. You'd have to pay me first + shipping. It's a chancey thing though considering what they're saying about the shoulder fit on these. I'll let you know how my size fits me with these. I'm going right after work today.

    If you'd want to check for me, that'd be nice. And snap a pic of the colors. I would only be interested in a brown color.

    I'll have to bring my camera with me tomorrow. Heck, if they fit me good I may buy one of each color they have. They only had two colors today so I'll ask if they have any in back or whatever or if they can order a brown one in your size. Did you ask at your local Wal-Mart if they could get you what you wanted?
