I'm a fan of unstructured tweed jackets so that I can easily wear them with jeans. However, unstructured does NOT necessarily mean NO padding or canvasing. I prefer little to no padding with soft, full canvasing..

x-post from the Unfunded Liabilities thread... I just got some very nice Holland & Sherry Gamekeeper Tweed ludicrously cheap (end-of-roll annual clearout etc.), which is on its way to Cad and The Dandy for my fitting next week...

I've acquired an old Harris Tweed sport coat that belonged to my father. He hasn't worn it in years and it's an okay, but slightly tight in the chest, fit on me.

Just need to get a button replaced and small hole repaired. Could be a cigarette burn.

It may be August, but the weather here is like late October, and today the high is forecast to be just 15 degrees.
Thought I'd try on a pair of excellent tweed trousers I e-thrifted over the summer. Came all the way from Texas.

Harris Tweed jacket by Dunn in a dated cut, but still great.
