Where to Find a Casual Tweed Blazer?

Hey guys,

Would anyone know of a good place to find a sharp-looking casual tweed blazer? I've looked a decent amount online, but all I've been able to find have been those on the dressier side. The style I have in mind wouldn't look out of place with jeans. Even the old "professor" look, with leather-adorned elbows isn't out of the question haha. Admittedly, it's kinda late in the winter season to start looking, but I've really had the "need for tweed" lately.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Dave

I rather thought tweed sport coats were inherently casual. If they weren't, I wouldn't be wearing one at the moment.

Could you elucidate what you want for us a little more clearly.

I was in Club Monaco right before Christmas and saw a great tweed sport coat. Almost pulled the trigger but was able to resist.

Alas they are just a bit too big for me. I'm a 37" chest and their 38 in the slimmer fitting jackets are still a bit too big and probably beyond tailoring in (shoulders too wide)


I like that in the brown - DarkKnight, what shoulder measurement do you normally look for?
