Offered here for sale is a vintage 1970s Tweed Sport Coat made from beautiful 100% Milnburn Tweed wool .....and, as the label on the sleeve boasts, "Blended With Imported Welsh Wool". The coat has a notched collar and a two button front closure....all of the buttons used on the coat are those really nice woven leather buttons. At the bottom of the sleeve, there are three buttons. There is a breast pocket on the upper left side of the coat and flap pockets on each side of the front of the garment. On the inside fo the coat there is a breast pocket on each side. The inside seams of the coat are very well finished with no raw edges visible. There is a kick pleat at the back of the sport coat. The colors of this fine Milnburn Tweed are mostly shades of light and medium brown, cream and bluish gray......a very pleasing combination that will blend well with many colors.
