Donegal Tweed Tailored Fit Sport Coat

The site says these originally retailed for $900, but it’s a bit of a gimmick: almost everything at Charles Tyrwhitt is almost always on sale. These jackets have been “on sale” for $449 for months, but just dropped to $240 each this week. Use promo code CTSAVE15 to knock another $36 off.

All of the jackets feature double-vented backs, which I’ve found is a bit of a rarity for off-the-rack tweed sport coats. From my experience with Tyrwhitt, the classic fit works best if you size down; presumably the tailored fit is true-to-size. Curiously, Charles Tyrwhitt opted for a classic fit for their jackets made from what you could call “heritage” fabrics—Harris Tweed from Scotland and authentic Donegal Tweed from Ireland.

I tried the Harris Tweed jacket this past fall as part of my search for a brown patch pocket sport coat. The shoulders were a bit stronger than I prefer, but I otherwise really liked the jacket, particularly appreciating the beautiful fabric. I ultimately returned it due to the functional cuffs, which for me automatically add a $75 “tailor tax” to shorten the sleeves from the shoulder. On my budget, I couldn’t justify such a huge tailoring bill on top of $449 for the jacket itself.

At $220 shipped, though, it just might be worth reconsidering.
