rmp sort of accelerated my level of motivation to unearth this tan 3/2 BB cord jacket of mine. I had relegated it to second- or third-line gear status only because it has somewhat limited applications, and is a dirt magnet, but not because I don't like it. I would like to wear it more often. We could have a discussion on the practicality of the tan cord jacket, and I think individual lifestyle would be a major variable.

I wear my Press cord sack A LOT. Usually with a pink or blue ocbd and grey, olive, navy or stone chinos. For me it's very versatile, but I'm a journalist so I almost exclusively wear odd jackets and chinos to work.

You wear your's well, rmp. That it fits your personal and professional conditions will allow you much more practical use.

In a wool s/j, especially a tweed, I can go from my office to multiple project locations, maneuver around inside and outside structures, lean up against all kinds of surfaces, go in and out of (often dirty) vehicles, and the tweed will miraculously never show it. Those British country people new how to make great fabrics that hid more than just dog and horse hair.

But there is no way I can wear one of my tan cotton corduroy jackets unless I know my route will be more dirt-free that day.

Kind of like when I wear a tan poplin suit.

It's true, the dirt I usually play in is of a metaphorical kind! I totally understand what you're saying about the tan cord sack in relation to job and environment.

It's funny. Of all my current sport jackets in rotation, the Press cord sack is the one I've had the longest. I thrifted it about 6 years ago when my obsession with J. Press started. I think the jacket is from the late 70s/early 80s. And though I love all the stuff I've gotten from Press since (both vintage and new), the cord sack is the one I always go to when I don't know what to wear or when I want to feel the most comfortable with what I'm wearing. It's a second skin to me. I never question it. If I had a "signature" sport jacket, that would be it.

I'm posting mostly because the shoulders remind me of that amazing example Ensiferous showed off the other day

I just got the measurements posted by the seller, and this beaut clocks in at about a 36R

Thanks!

I'm probably out of the running on it since I've bought too much stuff the last week or so, so if anybody else on here can use it go for it, you won't have me competing with you.

Well this thread has truly come full circle.

It started with Trip looking for a corduroy blazer, and now LeeLo finds one on eBay that Trip is selling.

Haha sorry I didn't realize this when I posted. In retrospect I probably should have thrown this up in the "Ebay and Etsy Finds" thread. Just trying to help out all the guys here looking for a quality garment.

At least we know it's from a reputable seller :D

Haha I wasn't complaining at all, it's a nice jacket from a great seller. I'm all for specific threads like this, as you can see from my many posts here and in the shawl cardigans thread.

And truth be told, he was looking for a green cord jacket originally, which is a little harder to find than tan

Good looking jacket. I might buy it if it fit me! Anyone interested I'd happily move it off eBay for a much lower price.
