    Casual Herringbone Sportscoat



    I was reading Primer and they had an article on this:


    http://canvas.landsend.com/pp/WoolHerringboneSportcoat~226939_-1.html?bcc=y&action=order_more&sku_0=::NTO&cm_mmc= Affiliate-_-DEEPLINK-_-TXT-_-xxxx&af_id=linkshare


    I don't believe in love at first sight...unless when it comes to clothing. But the 240 dollar price tag is turning me off.


    So anyone know where I can find something similiar to this? Or am I going to have to save my pennies?

    That sport coat is sweet; I've wanted it for awhile but I've also been turned off by the price.


    Right now you can get it on sale for $180 using FAMILYSAVE25 and PIN 1142, but that's still too steep for me.


    Thrifting?

      I got a sweet brown herringbone tweed sportcoat made by Hart Schaffner Marx this week at Savers for $7.50. I'm wearing it today, in fact.

        Way to make us non herringbone sportcoat owners jealous Jason.


        I read the review on the jacket. It seems to be something worth buying. I might splurge on this item in the near future. It's really good looking. But they also don't have my size so it'll help me wait a little longer. Hopefully when I decide to buy it theres another LEC sale.

          In the meantime check out nearby thrift stores. I see tweed in there every time. Not always worth getting, but always there.

            Hah! I second JC's comment of "Not always worth getting, but always there."

              I've got grey and brown herringbone sportscoats at Gap Outlet this fall. I love the fit and weight of them and for the price of under $60 you cant go wrong.

                    not what I wore today, just threw it on over what I was wearing. Looks a tad long in the pic, but I have short arms - so stuff that fits well sometimes looks long in comparison
