Thanks for taking the time to read the piece..glad you enjoyed it.   I didn't know that the Boers wore tweed...an ironic situation for sure.  If you don't mind I'll add this to the article.   ...w/regard to Harris Tweed quality, I can't attest to whether it has improved or not.

On Wednesday, August 22 2013, I’ll be posting the first in a very special two-part series featuring an interview of Mr. Jon Green, owner of Jon Green Bespoke.   Jon has been in business for over 25 years serving the most exclusive clientele from his Madison Avenue location in New York City.   Some highlights from the interview:   - Why custom tailoring at its finest is as much art as craft - What a Jon Green client expects - The importance of the...
In a word yes.  They fit better, feel better, and wear better.   
Gingham is an informal fabric so you really want to think about whether you want to wear that to a wedding.  Same with the white bucs.   Here's another recommendation that will fit the occasion in a dashing way: - Brown dress shoes - Brown dress belt - White dress shirt - Brooks Brothers Twin Frame navy/yellow/light blue stripe tie.  http://www.brooksbrothers.com/Twin-Frame-Stripe-Tie/MA01149,default,pd.html?dwvar_MA01149_Color=PNK2&contentpos=2 - The...
