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...
Quote: Originally Posted by mafoofan I'd get it fully lined; the jacket will be less likely to get caught up on your shirt. I don't think the amount of lining affects the way a jacket looks from the outside.

I think I will...
