 I think I'll post pics of each and not tell anyone which is which and have a poll to guess the right one. It'll be very interesting... stirpot.gif

Talk is cheap. Until you actually post pictures, I'm gonna go with the poly tweed looking like a crappy jacket made of crappy fabric to anyone with a trained eye.

 Maybe we'll see, won't we...

I'm keeping an open mind, FillW, but this is a lot of preamble...

 I'll try to do it tonight but will only take a pic of the fabric. You can probably cheat by looking at the buttons, lining etc. I'm saying that the fabric looks the same as Harris Tweed or damn close.

I don't doubt that a poly-tweed could look similar to a real tweed. If decent real tweeds can be thrifted (and we all know they can), why eat crappy hamburgers when filet mignon is so readily available?

 I agree.

Still no pics? This taste test sucks.

Color me confused, but is there a general consensus on which is more versatile (all other factors being equal), tweed in a houndstooth or a herringbone pattern? I've been looking for a brown houndstooth but see a lot more brown herringbone available.
post #1303 of 2072
Depends on the houndstooth, but if you are talking about a standard two color houndstooth (light/dark brown, white/black), I'd argue that herringbone is more versatile.

If you are talking about a gunclub, that's possibly a different story.

I'm talking about something like the LL cloth club fabrics posted by tchoy (the one on the bottom).
post #1305 of 2072
Personally, I dont find that particularly versatile and would prefer a herringbone, but I know there are some who will disagree. IIRC, Slewfoot has a jacket made up in that fabric that he likes.
