Mystery jacket – Chanel?

I recently aquired a beautiful tweed jacket. It’s very high quality, with the fabric being woven by Linton Tweeds, Ltd. in England. The label in the blazer is from the high-end department store, Holt Renfrew, of Canada. I am told they are the Bergdorf Goodman of Canada. Anyway, the mystery comes because the buttons on the jacket have the interlocking C’s ! Also, Linton Tweeds is the company that made the fabric for Chanel. I have researched this somewhat and it is possible that this was an adaptation by Chanel for Holt Renfrew. They had agreements with other designers such as Dior to create special designs for their store label. I have contacted Chanel to check that out! Here is a picture of the jacket –

  1. Hi There-

    Thank you so much for posting this. I just today bought a very very similar jacket… it has the same tags and exact same buttons and fabric. Did you hear back from Chanel regarding its history?

    I feel like my $20 purchase is going up in value!
