I have a few overcoats with buttoned vents, but the buttons are inwards-facing so not noticeable.

Tweed Porn?  But of course.  Isn't that what this thread is supposed to be about?

Waiting for lunch to arrive, Brooks Brothers brown herringbone tweed jacket (part of a three piece suit that I got at Brooks Brothers on Post & Grant in San Francisco in 1965) along with a Brooks Brothers pink OCBD, repp tie, and sweater vest......

Hello guys,

I hope this is the right thread for this.
I am looking for a (light) green tweed fabric to replicate this parka with: Picture of Parka (Click to show)

I am currently in the process of figuring out which fabrics I want. I am working with Luxire and they gave me the following three websites to look at:
https://shop.hfwltd.com/collection/2
http://dugdalebros.com/online-shop/bunch-144-white-rose-saxony/
http://www.huddersfieldcloth.com/categories.asp?Category=22 (this one I cannot access)

I am looking for a fabric that is plain or herringbone design (no windowpane, check, PoW, etc.).

I've been browsing this thread and those fabrics caught my eye: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)




The problem is that the design doesn't fit my requirements.
The aforementioned websites make it difficult for me to assess how green the color really is, it looks like a lot of those fabrics are brown, but that could be because of many reasons.

Anyone with any ideas/hints?


Sorry if this doesnt belong here.

If this parka is from Woolrich John Rich, then the material is a loden material from Loden-Steiner:

Thank you, I will see what Luxire can do about it.

I am still open for suggestions given that the color is different from what I want.

This one (Ref no. MSP9319) is from Huddersfieldcloth's weekly email. Seems to be a worsted tweed, with self-stripe effect--might not be what you are looking for though...

Are there any online MTM places that specialize in tweed? Something like Bookster?

http://bespokemears.co.uk/ was the outfit that made for Bookster.  Theres also http://www.tweedaddict.com/

Ooh, perfect! Which one would be able to provide a more modern cut? ie. less shoulder padding, higher arm holes, etc etc

post #1949 of 2051

I would guess Tweed Addict.  From their website they tend more toward the 'urban' tweed vs Mears solid countryside look.  To each his own . . .

post #1950 of 2051
I had a great experience dealing with Mears. Don't hesitate to contact them with your request.
