Gents - I'm thinking of commissioning a tweed SC from Chan on their upcoming DC visit...I think I need a solid or quiet pattern, as I have a number of SCs in kind of loud plaids. A windowpane might do, but nothing more aggressive. Any suggestions for particular fabric/styling? I'm 30, a professor, 6'1 185...I'm thinking of doing hacking pockets + ticket pocket...

Herringbone. No hacking pockets.

still yes on the ticket pocket though?

Yes. I think it's a subtle and interesting detail.

I would suggest a barleycorn tweed.
It is quiet, subtle and much less common than herringbone.
Also no ticket pocket- IMHO throws off the balance, also it
is a current fad.

I like that suggestion. I obviously don't agree about the balance problem. You could even say it restores the balance that was thrown off by the chest pocket. smile.gif

do you want the coat
to be subdued
then don't add the
hacking pocket
and compound the design
with tix pocket

a muted windowpane
with patch pockets
is nice

if a herringbone
in an almost tone-tone
'bones'
especially in darker hues
is most yawn inducing
use of harris tweed.

A barleycorn tweed is nice. I think MBreinin had one floating around...

I'd echo that sentiment. Breanish and W. Bill both have great tweed windowpanes.

u got something like this recently D?

thumbs up to yawn-inducing herringbone in a solid no checks (grey or blue- a prof in brown + elbow patches and cordo loafers and u good to go in the next Dan Brown novel ) - suggest patches low, band-aid high. play it safe, easy to mix and match
