Spotting Details:

This is one of my absolute favorite tweed jackets. Of course, it’s thrifted, cost less than $10, and no alterations were necessary. My favorite combo of factors. Here’s a picture of me wearing it last winter. 

It’s a vintage Brooks Brothers sport coat with some very traditional American tailoring details: natural shoulders, undarted, hard 3 roll 2 lapel, two button cuffs, flap patch pockets, center vent. Some of the greatest tweed jackets that I own are vintage ones, and fall into the camp of traditional American styling like this one. If you’re out on the hunt for one, keep your eyes peeled for details like those listed above. And remember, a sack jacket does not refer to its looking like a sack when worn, they can be quite flattering with the appropriate amount of waist suppression.
