    Today I ran across an Oxxford jacket in what I assume is light blue silk. I can't think of anything else that would feel like that. It had a couple of issues that would need further examination and possible fixing, such as a very small spot that looked like it would come out. It was probably a size ... 46 I would say, judging by the shoulders, but I didn't measure it. Unfortunately the store it was in was very dim and I didn't really get a good look at it. I guessed it was probably from the 80s. Would it be worth my time to pick this up? Will anyone buy/wear a blue silk sportcoat? I could start bidding at about $30 or so if I got it and put it on ebay.

    Thanks.

    I sort of doubt it's worth the trouble unless you could make $50 or more off of it. I bet you could get $60 - $65 for something like that on Ebay with good pictures.

    I guess I figured someone here might want it. I doubt it will bring that much, but if I'm up that way it's no trouble to run by and pick it up. I doubt anyone else will grab it in that store.
