    I'm interested in getting some used 100% wool, off white or ivory shawl collared dinner jackets in 40R and/or 41R. I'm finding sources for 100% polyester, which I don't want... There must be tuxedo shops or other shops which carry them, especially in the winter. Any contact info or links would be most appreciated...

    Thanks! :)

    Considering they're meant for wearing in tropical climates, I'm not sure how it being Winter should improve the chances of finding them.

    I'm hoping that some of the non Floridian tuxedo shops have lots of them taking up space. They might want to get rid of them during the "off season". Hope this helps.

    I know they are typically warm weather clothes, but something about a white/ivory dinner jacket looks really good at a holiday party before Christmas. Especially in the snow.

    There are some really good finds on ebay, that one looks promising.
