Jacket: Southwick for Cable Car Clothiers, thrifted $10 + altered $50.
I’ve written about this jacket before here. When I bought it, it fit perfectly in the shoulders and arms, but was gigantic in the waist. I loved the colors in the tweed herringbone so much, and since it was a high quality piece, I paid to have it altered. It now fits loosely and casually, and is perfect for layering over a sweater on a chilly fall day.
One of my favorite jackets. An Italian-made Polo Ralph Lauren (by Corneliani) made up in a wool/silk/flax lightweight tweed. I thrifted it (I assume that some alterations were made by the original owner since the sleeve length fits me perfectly), but it fits me as well as any other garment I own—if not better.

A Perennial Classic: The Harrington Jacket
Harringtons are great for summer evenings in places where it gets cool, but not cold. Think high 50s through the 60s.
This one was thrifted for around $8 I think, and was in perfect condition. Practically, if not actually, unworn. It’s originally from Nordstrom—maybe late-80s or early-90s—and has great mottled brown horn buttons, plaid tartan cotton lining, and bemberg in the sleeves.
