    Can you guys help me date this Harris Tweed Jacket.
    It was made in England and is insulated
    The tags I've found inside the jacket are from a breast pocket, and one if the tags is actually in the lower left hip pocket

    The inner tag states Cummings, but the lapels scream Onwentsia. What's the SF verdict on this Oxxxxxford?

    FAIK Oxxford models aren't distinguished by their lapel shape. If it says Cummings, it's probably Cummings.

    if I recall correctly the Onwentsia cut is more sack-like with a much more
    natural shoulder.

    Jesus. If Spoo can get Canali prices for a Bert Pulitzer, imagine what he can get for vicuna. Let me know when/if that goes on eBay. I want to follow that.

    ...although it's gorgeous.



    How heavenly does that vicuna jacket feel? I've yet to encounter it in real life, what a find!


    I love these sweaters, warm as hell and built like absolute tanks!

    one, a black outer morning coat, the other a full 2 piece tux with tails. Maybe worn once or twice in 70 years it seems. Almost fits me even (but doesnt sadly...not that I need tails but still)
