yeah TD, plenty of worsted herringbones, or there's houndsteeth smile.gifor POWs or other plaids in grays

 

 Or u could go for a worsted tweed herringbone like the one in Porter & Harding's 'Glorious Twelfth' book, but the real question is whether u should really get a gray odd  jacket at all.    They can be hard to match -  What pents? ...   Charcoal? Nope. Other gray? Look like u dressed in the dark.  Navy? Nope, look like a busman, no offence intended to bus driving members of course.  Brown would be odd. Khaki?  eeeeew.     And danger is it's going to look like a broken suit.

 Heh heh, we have a guy here who sprays that black fake hair stuff on his head. He thinks it's gonna help it grow back. Another guy gave him a ride in his car and the guy's head brushed against the ceiling of the car and that stuff came off. lol8[1].gif

Awesome peacock suit, DerekS. If it was double-breasted you would have been ascended to Olympus. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

 Awesome jacket, Hal! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

 

 I just bought a thrift plaid jacket that's cool like yours but it has three very small holes on the right sleeve. One is in front and is noticeable. I'm hoping it's possible to get them repaired in some way. It only cost $3.50 but fits me like a glove so it's worth it to me to try to get it fixed. Since you get a lot of second hand clothing I thought you would know about this.
