Damn, that plus the belts that you posted on your tumblr... sounds like a great place.
Great stuff! Thank you and to the others for contributing.
Hnnngghhhh I want this I want this!
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.
When I posted it, yeah - it was a bit early, but its friggin cold this morning!
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.
