UK-US Special Relationship: Epaulet Daltrey Sportcoat Harris Tweed mash-up

This mash-up tweed jacket from New York label Epaulet really fits the ArchBlog gimme dat bill in that it is a) virtually unwearable b) hideously pricey ($850) and c) effing cool.

Below, please find reams of blurb ...

We're thrilled to present the Daltrey, our premier half-canvassed sportcoat, in a spectacularly handsome combination of three Harris Tweeds. Together all three tweeds, the navy marl, oatmeal herringbone, and a gray-green basket-weave, form an amazing patchwork. It's a serious dose of trad edge.

Made for Michael Kuhle of Epaulet by Southwick in Massachusetts, the Daltrey imparts classic style, a handsome natural shoulder, quality workmanship, and understated elegance. This "Anglo-American" piece represents our favorite elements of both British and American tailoring.

The Daltrey's basic features include 3-roll-2 styling (where the top button sits as ornament and rolls away for the second button to be fastened), double rear vents, slim notch lapels, flap patch pockets, royal purple full lining, goat suede elbow patches and goat suede undercollar, and Southwick’s superb half-canvassed construction.
