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.
