This is one of several Brooks Brothers 3-button, sack cut sport coats I purchased recently at a local thrift store. It’s 100% camel hair – perfect for fall and winter – and I picked it up for $15.00. The top button is rolled on the lapel and is not visible, while the top button hole (also rolled on the lapel) is visible. This is commonly called a 3/2 roll, and it is the quintessential look of the Ivy League. I just checked the Brooks Brothers website and found a solid 100% camel hair 3-button sport coat listed for $548.00. I think I did well!
Two minor alterations were needed: the sleeves were slightly short and needed lengthening. I like to show between 1/4 and 1/2 inch of cuffs. There was also a ridge just below the collar, which needed to be taken out. I got it back from the tailor yesterday, and I can’t wait for cooler weather so that I can wear it.
