    Charity shops too. Me and a friend bought a couple a few years ago for a fancy dress as Farmers. Think we got them for £5 a piece, looked barely worn and genuine Harris. I gave mine to my dad and he still wears it to this day.

    Have a look at Austin Reed. I got a Viyella "Overcheck" tweed jacket one from there a few months ago and it's great with chinos or just with jeans

    Austin Reed....ah - glad to hear they are still in business. I had an Austin Reed sport coat, when I was not long out of school, and had to dress up for work every day, meeting with clients, architects and engineers. I wouldn't know where to find a AR now.
