$75 Harris Tweed Jackets At Walmart

$75 Harris Tweed jackets at Walmart

This has to be one of the most curious deals I’ve read about in a while. According to forums Ask Andy About Clothes and X Marks the Scot, Walmart is selling Harris Tweed jackets for $75. 

According to the forums, they’re manufactured in Bangladesh and come sized by chest size, even in “long” sizing. They’re not at every Walmart store, just some select areas. And there’s a selection of six different fabrics. 

This might be a decent pickup for those of you looking for such a jacket, as I highly doubt you’ll find a Harris Tweed blazer for this price at retail. Even with alterations, you’re easily looking at probably no more than $150 total. 

Still, there’s plenty of reason to be skeptical, especially at such a low price. I’ll admit to even having the thought, “If it’s too good to be true, then it probably is” cross my mind. And it’s worth noting that you can often find plenty Harris Tweed jackets on both eBay and in thrift shops at a lower price, too.

If anyone comes across these – or buys one – please get in touch. I’d love to do a follow up. (I’d check this out for myself, but Walmart is a rare species in the Windy City.)
