I like this one the best for that combination.

that one was the favorite for myself and my fiancee as well.

I would humbly suggest that you reconsider the choice of pants for your wedding. I've had a few friends get married in tweed and I think it looks great, but jeans are beyond the pale. I also think most here would agree (?) that jeans aren't the ideal pairing for that top half anyway, wedding or no. Just something to consider. Congratulations, and best wishes for the wedding.

If you're bride will be wearing a wedding dress, you shouldn't wear jeans.

Agreed.  Go for corduroy or moleskin.  Never wear jeans with a tie, especially a bow.

I was going to say "jeans at a weeding? really? could you not find any matching trousers?" but looks like that has been done sly.gif

 

honestly, I think those patterned bow ties would make it look too "busy" - the herringbone in your jacket, plus the check shirt would make me look for a plain bow tie. If I had to choose, then

or

Voice in the wilderness here - I don't have a bow tie preference from your selection (other than a thumbs up to wearing one) but say that if your bride is cool with the jeans, go for it. I think a tweed jacket looks great with quality jeans and (white's?) boots.

I love, love, love this and it inspired me for my first tweed purchase off eBay. Picked up this Brooks Brothers vintage USA made 3-roll-2 charcoal and gray herringbone.

 

Can't wait for it to arrive.

 

I got to say I'm obsessed with tweed now to the point my GF calls it watching tweed porn on the internet. Have my eye on a couple others....

Something like that is on my wishllist, too.  In fact I want three--one in grey, one in blue and one in dark green, all herringbone.

Wow, so glad to have found this thread! :)

 

I'm rather new to the styleforum scene, so I only have one tweed jacket from Sid Mashburn [lambswool tweed, I believe it was] and an odd vest from Oliver Brown in a dark green.

 

They might not be the best together, but what do you think of them as individual parts? Really curious, as I bought them well before I knew very much about menswear.

 

Apologies for the bad pictures.

Hard to make a final judgment with the blurry pictures, but it looks promising.
post #1423 of 2137
Judging from the picture they work well together and as separate components. Off to a great start!

Getting a 3 piece made in this (Harris Tweed) fabric:

That's going to look great!
