    I love the Chanel tweed jackets.. they are such a classic, and they're 'in' for Spring. However, I don't have the $$ for a Chanel. Does anyone know where I can find something that looks similar and is more in an affordable price range??

    also.........i know the real ones are expensive.......

    but if you can save up for a real one......its such a good investment! they will still be dream items in 100 years

    I was totally going to suggest Zara. They have great ones, although I find it's hard to find a good fit. Wish I had seen the Oasis ones :cry:

    I think that Arden B and Anthropologie make tweed jackets that are similar to a chanel... the Arden B one is pink with black trim very cute

    Try Bloomingdale's. I saw TONS of the Chanel-esque jackets and there were some nice ones by BCBG. Just take a look around the whole women's area and you'll find some.

    What is the price range of a Chanel jacket? Is there a website?

    My mom is making me one, in gray tweed. I love the way they look with girly camisoles and jeans.

    Where not to find them? They seem to be everywhere...(not just places like Zara...other designers seem to be copying them as well)
