    Help Finding A Tweed Jacket

    I really want a tweed jacket. But I don't know where to find one like the kind I want.
    It needs to be skinny fitting and quite short. I also want to be able to push the sleeves up my arms.
    Help?

    With no idea of your budget people aren't going to be able to offer very much useful help.

    Here are some places to start looking:
    I think my statement was pretty clear in saying he needed to post a budget.

    There are some great Feraud ones floating around TK Maxx at around £60 atm, as well as other brands. I've seen a few House of Holland Moleskin ones too.

    Preferably under £100. Sorry I didn't mention it. Thanks for the help guys, I'll go check out TK-Maxx sometime soon.

    Then I'm afraid your choices are limited.

    Asos and Topman are you best bets I guess:


    ASOS | ASOS Slim Fit Tweed Blazer at ASOS


    ASOS | ASOS Slim Fit Tweed Hunting Blazer at ASOS

    Other than that, you might get lucky in a second hand store or try eBay.

    What size are you?

    eBay - The UK's Online Marketplace

    I'd wager that will sell for under £100

    Topman has some okay options.

    But they're not strictly tweed.

    And the fabric compositions look frightening. Also this one's a little north of £100.

    But if those three have the right kind of texture and the heritage vibe I assume you're going for - there was a berry one on there but I elected not to suggest it; it was made of various undesirable fibers, and most people looking for a berry tweed jacket will probably specify the colour!

    The Asos ones would be alright, but the pockets get on my nerves a little. They just seem too prominent.
    Edit: Asos ones not Topman.
