    Help Finding A Grey Tweed Blazer/Suit Jacket

    I've been searching the last few days for a light or mid grey tweed jacket with no luck

    - 100% wool
    - Single breasted
    - Notch lapels
    - Single vent
    - 2 Button
    - 38 Reg

    The maximum I would prefer to spend is around the £250 mark.

    Cheers
    Tony

    In my opinion, looking on eBay and Amazon will definitely help you to find this kind of suit jackets. I had seen some similar jackets in a fashion show event and good looking model was wearing it.

    Thanks Jay for inspiring me with the Holland Esquire pick. I ended up getting a different Holland Esquire blazer in the end from Flannels HOLLAND ESQUIRE.

    Buy the fabric and go to your tailor and get it custom made.

    Way too much hassle when a 38 reg generally fits me like a glove plus I wouldn't have the patients to look for fabrics and wait for a tailor to make it for me.

    Well that's a shame, because an off the rack blazer may fit well, but never perfectly, and you could probably get exactly what you want for cheaper then a lot of store bought blazers.

    Hey Tone

    I recently bought a similar jacket from Debenhams, by Jasper Conran. It's not genuine tweed, but looks it. Only £90 too. I've tried to find it online, but it doesn't seem to be there, so maybe it's last season. I saw it in the store recently though.

    It's a great looking jacket and fits really well (I'm a 40, but have got quite broad shoulders and a slim waist, so stuff is often baggy around my middle). It looks awesome dressed down with dark jeans a casual shirt and some braces, or dressed up with dark trousers, shirt, tie and pocket square. It's my favourite item at the moment.

    Happy shopping!

    Cheers Nat... Funnily enough I popped in Debenhams the other day because I had seen a nice grey Tweed jacket on there website. I tried it on and for some messed up reason they only have the 38 in a 'short' then 40/42/44 in a regular. The top button on the 38 short sat to high on me and the 40 reg was too big in the shoulders. It is a nice looking jacket for the money though, I was disappointed.

    That's annoying. Did you check with the staff? Do they definitely only do short in 38?
