    Thumbs up eBay find: vintage Duncan Chisholm & Sons check tweed jacket

    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Vintage-T...kAAOSwCrtcmSe4
    The color doesn't really work with my wardrobe, but it's a very attractive jacket.

    Opening bid is 9.99, and no bids so far.
    The seller states that it measures 20 inches armpit-to-armpit. I sent a message, and the seller states that the sleeve length is 25 inches.

    I figure someone around here is going to want to put a bid in, particularly at that price.
    Trying to look good on a budget.

    It is certainly a beautiful kilt jacket.

    just a wee bit on the small side; other wise it'd have a spot in my closet. I've been on the prowl for a similar pattern (or houndstooth) for a while now.

    Currently, two bids. Neither, me. Toby, I (&, probably a few others) assumed you would be interested.

    Indeed I was! Despite my wife's "no more kilt jackets" decree, I couldn't help myself. I'd been wanting a bold houndstooth check jacket for a while, and this one was just the ticket. The auction ended at the equivalent of $14.99USD, so it will be $40.88 including international shipping. Not too bad.

    Now I just have to face the music with SWMBO.

    Fantastic - looks like a great addition!

    I wish it had been just a little larger

    Be sure to point out that I had no part in this one!

    And another very nice jacket added to the collection...

    Thumbs up

    Well, if you survive your wife's wrath, perhaps I'll get a chance to see the jacket at some point.
