I agree. But, at least in our home town, San Francisco ,the selection is abysmal. The only shops currently carrying realtweed are the Hound and Cable Car Clothiers- the latter carrying stiff basic fabricswith no "interest" cut in 1958 Ivy style. Most of my purchases have beenonline- which of course has its' own problems. . As for the Hound, its better but nothinglike one sees at the Andver Shop or O'Connells.
