eddie bauer x harris tweed
Eddie Bauer Three Season (it fits an optional quilted vest, out of stock) Harris Tweed Wool Sport Jacket (is this Haggis' Harris Tweed, doubt it, but not sure). Suede leather patches at elbows (niiiice). Bellows, shell-box pockets with tuck-in flaps. Wind flap at collar. $700... way too rich for me (e.g. for $500 you could go BarbourxTweed), but this is part of Eddie Bauer's Heritage Collection, making some moves. Slightly old news but hadn't seen it myself. Sucker for windowpaney tweeds. Starts at a 40" chest.
[Update from Eddie Bauer customer service, 1/5/09: "This item originates in Morocco. Unfortunately we are unable to provide detailed information regarding the source of the fabric."]
