Some tweeds that I have (with apologies for poor quality shots):

 

A 'modern' Harris Tweed jacket from the period of huge diversification in colours from the 1960s onwards...

And finally, and this is much more interesting to tweed heads, a rather rare example of a West of England Tweed, probably from a Cotswald mill that no longer exists. This is an overcoat by the also no longer operational, Dunn & Co., and a rather beautiful one too, and the finish is really smooth compared to the Scottish island tweeds:

Mine will be made up in December. What's your jacket going to be? I find myself gravitating towards a Huntsman-like one button with hacking pockets.

...I simply MUST get a three-piece tweed suit from Bookster some day. Does their work include half/full canvas?

Love this. May be the light, but is there a slight texture to that shirt? Very nice (who makes?).

Thanks. Everything is Polo (the square is Talbott).

I wish there were a bit more tonal contrast between the tie and jacket, but love that tweed.

Will from A Suitable Wardrobe suggested that trousers made from tweed will bag out at the knees. Maybe his comments were confined to Harris Tweed, though.
