    I read that Cricketeer made a pretty nice mid-range quality jacket in the 70s and 80s. In my opinion, the quality is stunning and it looks fantastic. I am a sucker for Harris Tweed in general but I especially love this coat! I'm glad someone else appreciates it as much as I do. I just have no idea what to wear it with/how to wear it. As far as your request, I snapped a quick photo.

    Personally, I'd wear it with some darker jeans, or navy or gray wool trousers.

    Also, the tie looks great. Nice find!

    I see Cricketeer quite frequently. I remember some of the better stores where I grew up carried it. Most of it I see looks dated and beat up. Also I have yet to see a Harris Tweed anything. Racquet Club is another brand I see that I always associated with better clothing.

    Not sure - I went to check it yesterday and the thing just disappeared. Same thing happened to the Ben Silver tie thread when some doorknob claiming to be the guy who bought it from me made an account and was causing drama. Not sure what happened with the sweater thread. Should be hearing back from Paypal tomorrow. Have two supervisors working with me now, one in the Fraud Investigation dept.

    Wow! Score on the Oxxfords! Was the Normal Hilton recent ("Doing one thing well" under "Norman Hilton on the label)? If so, I'd snag it!

    Will probably be selling them.
