Look to Club Monaco for your American-made tweed sport jacket

Chances are you put off buying that new tweed sport jacket until now.

That’s very understandable.

After all, the clothing industry’s seasonal calendar is beyond absurd, especially when autumn weather is only now upon us.

Don’t worry, though. You can still find something right now without waiting weeks, as is the case for made-to-measure or bespoke.

 Pictured above is the new made in America tweed sport jacket from Club Monaco ($750; available here). It’s pretty much perfect in just about every respect.

As with past jackets, it’s classically styled. Think hook vent, patch pockets and three-roll-two lapel. The only real disappointment is the tweed’s lack of provenance. At this price, the tweed should be from a famous British mill (preferably something Harris Tweed).

A Club Monaco source tells major stores — Toronto, New York — will still have sizes stocked on shelves that are being shown as unavailable in the online store.

Don’t forget: Club Monaco also has a very generous discount program for university students.
