http://www.ebay.com/itm/281560351633
This vintage tweed jacket was made in the 1940s. It is made of an oatmeal and brown striped tweed, similar in pattern to what was used on Fender tweed amps. It is single breasted, with three leather knot buttons, no vent, and patch pockets. The jacket is half lined and has no tags. The leather buttons may be replacements, as there is a bag with smaller matching leather cuff buttons in the pocket which have not been sewn on.

Chest (pit to pit): 20″
Shoulder to shoulder: 18″
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 24-1/2″
Length (Base of collar to hem): 29″
