IMO Tweed can look costumey on young guys, so avoid brown or bright window panes
Solids r good, in blues, greys

Very good - is that from this season's collection? Hackett has been very slow this year in updating stock on its website

Ihate to say it, but if you're like me, you're rushing into this stuff far too early. Even today, where the temps will max out at 62, with clouds, its still just a bit to warm to bust out the good stuff., in another month I think it will be more tweedy in terms of temps. Then its all ours until early April.

The Hackett tweed looks great! Of course, not everyone is bold enough to pull off that color. You definitely wear something like that if you want to get noticed.

Some great tweed garments already smile.gif


I guess I should add a link to my SF thread that has 300 images of some superb Harris Tweed cloths made through the years.

Another fan here - I buy mine from Bookster who other than being incapable of keeping to deadlines are very good and have a very good choice of fabrics.

I want the Hackett too. I have a few vintage tweed jackets, plus some modern retro stuff. Someone mentioned constume, well I've been accused of looking like I am wearing costume before, but here I am doing it deliberately (for a class I teach) - the haircut and moustache were part of it. Although actually I do wear this Harris Tweed three-piece by Old Town when the weather gets really cold here. The jacket is bulkier than is currently usually the case, so I am currently considering whether to get it tailored.
