Any thoughts on a reasonably price tweed sport coat? I'm looking at the Tweed Addict, Mears and Murphy of Ireland. Does anyone have experience with any of these? Thanks in advance.

My advice and who's had lots of luck buying some fantastic jackets is Salvation Army and Goodwill. Harris Tweed, Donegal Tweed it all shows up and for a pittance. Naturally, it has to be in your size and if larger you can always have it taken in and you will still be saving $$.'
Good luck, do good work and stay in touch,
No, it wasn't warm. I walked up from my house. It's about a 40 minute walk and it was cool and windy going, and four hours later, it was cold, damp, windy, and dark walking home.
Tourists keep coming to Southern California, somehow imagining that it is warm and sunny in June. It isn't. It's usually cool, damp, and often foggy, particularly near the sea. Hordes of them pour out of tour busses near the seaside wearing short pants and often disappear into the fog, unable to see the sea or anything else.
The warm and sunny part of Southern California is on the other side of the mountains, in the desert.
Thanks to all for your kind comments. Highlight (or lowlight) of the evening was when some fangirl (not with our group) who might have had too much to drink thought that I was Doctor Who.
Longtime lurker of this thread. Y'all have inspired my newfound love of tweed.
Of interest to tweed-lovers: In the B/S forum, I have listed some awesome tweeds that I bought for myself but that, alas, do not fit me. I'm having to sell them, and I think some of y'all would appreciate them. One is a brilliant 40R Henry Poole Savile Row bespoke tweed--it's a truly beautiful jacket. (Other jackets by Ptychley and Crombie.) I have tried to embed a pic of the Poole, though I'm not sure if it worked.
Also of interest: After reading about them on this forum, I decided to give Bespoke Mears a shot. I ordered a hacking jacket in lightweight Fox Brothers glen plaid (POW). Turned out nicely--I would recommend trying them. Not an absolute perfect fit, but darn good, especially for the low price point.
