Vintage Harris Tweed Mens Jacket St Michael British Sport Coat Size Medium
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a Harris tweed jacket or sport coat that was made by St Michael of Great Britain. The fabric is made in woven in a herringbone pattern in a number of tones - reddish brown, white, black and tan, which creates a perception of an overall patterned tan colour. The jacket has a flapped pocket at either side and a pocket at the left chest. It has medium width notched lapels and closes with two leather buttons at the front. There are three similar smaller buttons at either cuff and the back bottom has a double vent. The jacket is fully lined in a taupe coloured acetate fabric. It has a pocket built into the interior at either side.
Label: St. Michael Made in the UK Pure Scottish wool.
Fabric label: Harris Tweed label with the authentic mark of the Orb, Handwoven in the Outer Hebrides from Scottish grown wool. Labeled as “Light Weight”
Fabric: 100% Scottish Wool tweed. The fabric has good rigidity compared to other Harris Tweed jackets that I’ve seen - the jacket sits well on the body and the fabric should last for a long time with normal care.
Sizing: The size label reads “Medium to fit a 40 inch chest” - from my experience American sizing on jackets is usually 3” to 4” smaller than chest size, so this would be about a size 36/38 - please rely on the following measurements for fit (compare measurements with a similar jacket that you presently own or to your own body measurements, taking the cut of the garment into account, which is fitted):
Shoulders: 18” across from shoulder/sleeve seam to shoulder/sleeve seam
Sleeves: 25” from the shoulder/sleeve seam
Sleeve inseam: 16 3/4”
Chest: 40” around, taken under the arms
Waist: 38” around
Overall length: 31”, measured flat
Condition: It is in very good condition with no stains, odors, wear or tears - this jacket looks to have seen very little use and has been well cared for over the years.
This is a well tailored jacket made with a beautiful quality tweed fabric - many years of use left in this, great jacket if it fits!
