yeah the dogtooths great but b/w will be grey from a couple metres, and grey's tricky because u can't wear it with a whole band of grey trews either side of the greyness of the jacket (for lack of sufficient contrast)
A LoroPiana should last at least until the tailor's done with it. IDK .. how often do u wear any one coat ls? Not really talking about a lotof use. . FWIW I can say I haven't observed any wear and tear.
When u get in close it has threads and IDK 'bits' of different colors eg i have a lite brown made up of brons, reds, yellows, oranges, blondes Look at these cloths Ive posted b4 top & bottom r cashmere; middle 2 r a worsted plain weave and a worsted herringbone Cash closeup se the mottling? worsted plain worsted hb cash- looks tweedy rite?
