A patchwork tweed sport jacket for autumn

The autumn collection from York Street, the contemporary line offered by iconic clothier J. Press, features a pretty awesome spot jacket.

Granted York Street's Carver tweed sport jacket (pictured above) is very informal, but it would be perfect for anyone willing to make a statement in the same way as they might wear go-to-hell pants during the warm weather.

At $645 it's a bit expensive, though it does come with all the right details: three-roll-two lapel, side vents and patch pockets (a patch breast pocket would have been great). The only thing missing are elbow patches.

Styling tip: This would be perfect for a college football tailgate this autumn. Just wear the jacket with a pair of suede chukka boots, denim jeans or corduroy pants and colorful socks. On a cold day, a schoolboy or regimental striped scarf will keep you warm in style.
