We need a summer weight sports jacket for DH, and we've left it too late to find his size in the stores or even online in a lighter color that he desires. TravelSmith has a few things that LOOK like they might work, but I've never purchased from them.

I hate to buy crap, but I also hate to buy expensive. We wait for sales, but alas, this time waited too long (he's gone up one size, so it's a rare size for a jacket now - 46 Short).

I've tried Macy's, Jos S Bank (who have what he wants at $595, but are selling off the usual sizes at $119 for the same damn thing), Dillards, Lands End, and a few other online resources. Still looking, but came across TravelSmith and thought I'd ask.

Any other ideas, we're open to suggestions.

Yes I have purchased from Travelsmith, many times. Having said that, I have not purchased anything of consequence in the past year. The clothing I did purchase years ago is still wearable and in great shape. My husband has the Travelsmith Travel Blazer and really likes it along with many of their "escape" shirts, pants, etc.
