Being Thrifty: Vintage Find on eBay

I love the look, feel and general design aesthetic of tweed overcoats.  The problem is I could not find one that had raglan sleeves, in an acceptable color combination, at a reasonable price.  But: I finally did. (sing eBay song here) I found it on eBay!  Beautiful 60's vintage Harris Tweed from a family owned company apparently, "Kaufman's".  $24 shipped.  Really. $24.  Check it out:

The labels inside seem pretty well intact and there are no obvious holes, tears, stains.. nothing. I dry cleaned it and I am happy with the result.

  1. This is quite nice. Yeti wants a smoking jacket and he is shopping on sites that mass-produce them. He needs VINTAGE. I think I will start looking on eBay, but I think it will be hard to find a Yeti-sized jacket. Let me know if you have tips.


Don't be afraid... I won't bite. Talk to me.
