    Thrifted Harris Tweed I Passed On

    I couldn't move my arms a whole lot and the arm holes were way too tight. It didn't have a size tag. I'm guessing 38R or 40R. I have a 42 inch chest but can wear 40R depending on the brand.

    Should I have picked it up anyways?

    Dave, you could probably have resold it if it was in near perfect condition.

    Harris Tweed's easily sell for $40+ on ebay with good pictures. A couple of the well know sellers with great condition ones and great photos often fetch around $100 for them. I stalk Harris Tweeds on ebay. I have bought 3 to this point, and I am always looking for more haha.

    It wasn't in near perfect condition. Someone had the sleeves shortened and it looked homemade (uneven). Probably an easy fix but I wouldn't want to invest in a jacket just to resell it. Besides that it was pretty nice.

    Maybe I'll go back and pick it up, measure it and see if anyone wants to buy it.
