Thanks for the compliment! You may laugh, but the sport coat is Lauren Ralph Lauren that I picked up late last year during a post-summer sale at Macy’s.
It’s cotton and a thin white/black stripe that reminds me of blue jeans (except, you know, not blue). Half lined, light weight and I wear it year’round. Unlike a lot of cotton coats, it doesn’t give away it’s traditional seasonal place because of its color and texture.
For me, it’s an example of how you can take an off-the-rack coat, take it to the tailor and have a piece that looks nice and doesn’t have to cost you phat stacks.
