Hoping to get you gentlemen's advice on picking up a grey odd jacket: Is herringbone an exclusively tweed pattern? I'm looking for a grey herringbone odd jacket but it seems like they're all tweed. Alternatively, what would be a good, versatile, pattern that's predominantly grey?
yeah TD, plenty of worsted herringbones, or there's houndsteeth or 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.
