post #1171 of 2072

Hi All,

I have a jacket in this tweed (Harris) which I think is fantastic, but I'm tired of wearing it only with grey flannels and white, blue or grey shirts.

Any suggestions?

^Moleskin or corduroy trousers can be awesome with tweed.

Austinii - do you know what the fabric is in your avatar? The brown with red stripe? Thanks!

David, that tweed suit is fantastic stuff.

Again, not actually tweed, but pretty close:

The short answer is yes, it's a Harris Tweed 733231 I have a superb jacket in this one, but it's very warm, and reserved therefore for the coldest days.

 

But as a new poster, albeit member and watcher for a long time, I'm having difficulty getting images into my posts, if you look at post 1171 (above) you'll see a better image is attached, but it doesn't show. Not sure where I went wrong.

 

I had seen in earlier posts that someone was seeking a tweed in these colours, which is why I tried to show it.

Agreed indeed!

 

The problem with the stuff I showed is that the black is very black, and the white whiskers have no non grey tones, which makes it difficult to mix even with many greys.

 

Finding suitable shirt and tie colours is equally difficult - especially since I'm not good at matching.

 

Maybe need a Spoo in my closet!

Well despite being an ardent Tweeder, I'm not sure that I could define the stuff anyway!

When is a flannel a tweed?

When does Glen Plaid become tweed?

 

This one looks pretty good to me though!

It does though it would look even better with some texture. Still, not bad, not bad at all.

2nded. *sort of* similar to the stirling tweed bookster have (and a suit they are making me, wish it would hurry up)

Thanks, gents.

The fabric is a 90-10 Wool-Cashmere blend.

I like the lining also.

 

If only we saw more of this I'd be tempted to post more often.

David I really like that suit, bravo.

Even the most ardent roping fan should be able to appreciate the importance of proportion. After a certain height, it's just not very tasteful.

Canta there are nice roped shoulders and there are silly sciamat roped shoulder which deserve derision.

This is one of the former. I'm starting to think you might actually not know what a roped shoulder is, or looks like.
