I had a grand tour on my bicycle this afternoon in the lovely 17 degree Celsius sunny weather.

The vintage tweed jacket is well-made indeed with lovely shaped shoulders, handmade button holes and highly detailed stitching.
Being more than 80 years old the fabric is surprisingly soft and with vivid colours; but tear and wear also resulted in a few holes that need to be over-darned. I will attend to the over-darning when I have acquired the proper skills.
When I acquired the jacket all buttons were missing, so I bought a beautiful set of brown-blonde real buffalo horn buttons from Grunwald-True-Style.
