It's hard to answer since we don't know what you look like.  If you're fair skinned and dark haired, I'd stick with the blues and greys.  I'd favor 4-7, myself.  If you're light haired, 10 would be great.

Kai is no-haired...

4-7 all look nice.

A picture taken last December, buying a Dundee Cake and wearing a brown tweed suit that I got at Brooks Brothers in 1965 (and yes, that is a Gryffindor tie).

Maybe it's me, but I never understood the attraction of navy tweed. It seems a bit incongruous to me.

I just got a jacket from them after 6 months waiting but now I can see I was lucky!

Just bought this tweed coat off eBay. Anyone know what the pattern is called? I would probably call it shepherd's check, as in the necktie pattern, but perhaps tweed aficionados refer to it by a different name.

Looks like a barleycorn, but hard to tell.

Need a closer look, but appears to be a "two and two".

Thanks for the input. Here's a close-up:

I see this pattern fairly often, so it would be strange if it didn't have a name beside generic descriptions such as "black and white check".

hmm i'd probably say Barleycorn too, but am not totally sure of the exact definitions of such

I thrifted one like that from Tweedydon, though mine is more olive than black/white.  I'd like to know what that weave is called, too.

It is a two and two.
