I've said it before, but it bears no end of repeating: A successful cheapskate knows how to take what he can get when he can get it. It may be June and all, but that's never a good reason to pass up a fine tweed should one turn up in the dirt:
A beautiful number in the perfect shade of medium brown, hard wearing but butter soft, and just my size to boot, no alterations necessary, turned up just the other day. An upgrade, much better than my present piece of brown tweed. Jeans, flannels, khakis...this jacket can take it all.
The herringbone pattern is prominent, but nicely understated. The construction is top notch. Dated 1987, but may as well be brand new.
Sartorial gold from the Andover Shop, and a hell of a score for $11.99.
Take what you can when you can, Thrift shopping is no time to think seasonally.
p.s. ulterior motive: new stuff up in the shop today, including some really glorious tweeds I could neither pass up nor hold onto until the Fall. See theme, along with new Spring/Summer goods, shoes and neckties here.
