Not sure if this is the right question to ask here. I am going to make up my LL Agnelli tweed into a 3-piece. Usually for checks, how much pattern matching should there be between the vest and the coat? Just the horizontal lines?
The VBC hopsacks are quite nice. I also second the fresco suggestion. For fresco, I would probably make a suit. That way, you can wear the coat separate when you want to. Minnis fresco, Finmeresco, and crispaire are all quite good.
Caccioppoli, which is probably more accessible than Drapers, has a similar, if not identical, fabric in the latest jacketing book.
