After 3 months wait, my 2 MTM Finamore shirts arrived. Having no previous experience with Finamore, I made these shirts mostly as an experiment. Father and son Finamore were in the shop to take measures, which added to the experience. I must say the result was over my expectations - the fit is extraordinary, to the level of my bespoke Matuozzos actually!

Anyway, the high-end RTW makers like to do a partial lining because it is falsely associated with higher quality--even when it may not be the optimal choice for the particular jacket. Yes, they were real tweed for sure. Anyway, I agree with your thoughts on the false connection to better quality - you have made me change my mind once again - fully lined it...
With casual wear I use this messenger bag in nylon and leather from Felisi: http://image.www.rakuten.co.jp/sunny...302719747.jpeg
I was in quite a lot of shops today (New Year's sale started today), and while I made no particular sales bargains, I did see a lot of Donegal tweed jackets with quarter lining only. Borrelli for example had them all quarter lined. Not too bad actually. Hmm, thought I had decided on fully lined, but now I got confused...

Also they have a...

I am making up a jacket in a dark brown H&S 12 Oz Donegal Tweed. http://www.hollandandsherry.com/page...d_II_hs546.htm I am doing a 3 roll 2, unconstructed with 2 patch pockets and welted breast pocket. However, I have still not decided on the lining - my tailor recommends full lining due to the rough structure of the tweed. Normally, I prefer softer jackets and am therefore considering quarter lined (only to cover the shoulders). What do you all think, is it unwise...
