We received about 8 inches of snow over the weekend, so tweed is out in full force:

Very nice!  And that sweater is top drawer.

As the above poster said it's getting chilly up here.

How often do you guys have your tweeds cleaned?

Stank is to tweed what patina is to brown shoes.

Um, er, never? So far, no need.

Should tweed sleeve length be the same as any other SC or a tad longer since in many cases it acts as outerwear?

Fwiw, I hate the ones I have with longer sleeves.

Maybe cut a bit bigger since you normally wear a sweater below, but I surely wouldn't want the sleeve to touch any part of my hand.

The sleeve length on a suit and a sport coat is the same.  Where this silly idea arose that somehow they are different I cannot imagine.

No one said anything about suit vs sport coat sleeve length. I was merely asking if folks left the arms on their tweed garments a bit longer since tweed often acts as outerwear.

Scored a fun vintage tweed. Resembles a mini barleycorn pattern in a subtle, earthy, natural tan with some light flecking. Very, very soft. The real life color is a bit more regular tan than shown here. Not sure of the weight, but probably around 16oz. Lovely stuff and it seems like there may be enough for a sportcoat and matching vest.

What color pants do you imagine you'd wear with that combo?
post #1784 of 2155
^ I would go with dark blue jeans, dark brown or a mid-dark gray. Earthy green cords could also work.

It will be interesting to see. Please post when you get it made up.
