This jacket is very easy to style (and looks great accompanied by denim and brogues) and certainly keeps you comfortable and warm. I think the grey-on-grey works well in this outfit. I don't know if any of you recognise what type of gloves I'm wearing, but amazingly they're Austrian police gloves. I found them while looking for standard black gloves on eBay - it's funny where your search can take you and what you end up finding.
My jacket was one of two secondhand ones I bought quite recently (again on eBay) where you'll find an abundance of Harris Tweed at some very reasonable prices. The fabric is such high quality that when you wear it, you just know you're wearing something that has a bit of history. >>
A little bit about the history of Harris TweedSomething I found out: Harris Tweed is a protected name under the Harris Tweed Act of 1993 - only tweed hand woven, dyed and spun from pure virgin wool in the Outer Hebrides can take the name (a bit like Melton Mowbray pork pies and Cornish clotted cream). The jacket has a quaint label which I'm rather taken with - I have no idea how old it is but the font and the illustration of an orb makes it look true vintage. It's probably not changed in 100 years.
HAVE YOU EVER BOUGHT ANY CLASSIC VINTAGE ITEMS ON EBAY (OR AUSTRIAN POLICE GLOVES)?
