Hi there,

 

I love your brown suit. I was wondering, do you happen to know the P&H fabric code? I am thinking of having something very similar made. P&H do two weights in the brown, one at 560g and a lighter one at 390g, I'd be very interested to know which it is. Enjoy.

Here's my wedding suit in Porter and Harding Thornproof, the shoes were a big decision, but I thought they'll last me forever, they're Forzieri handmade in Italy, you may recognise them from such shows as "Boardwalk Empire" :)

 

The white balance is a bit off in this, in reality it's a much warmer brown.

I think they may have changed the colours/codes a bit since I got mine, but looking at their website today I'd say mine was the 62268.

 

It's definitely the heavier cloth so 560g, I love the coloured flecks in the fabric, I want a blue one next to complete the lineup. :)

 

The trousers are unlined which my tailor said would make them feel itchy, but I don't find this at all, if anything they're more comfortable as they're not as hot.

I have a couple of tweeds around 450-560g and find them quite versatile. Not at all a "dead of winter" type cloth, at least in the UK, as some have suggested on here before. All IMO anyway.

I've added another shade of brown to my collection biggrin.gif

Anyone care to share their source of odd tweed trousers in the UK? I have noted Walker Slater, they seem to have a good range at a reasonable price (£100).http://www.walkerslater.com/edward-shetland-navy-donegal-tweed

Do I have a 'tapestry tweed' half-belt jacket? Hope someone can give some help with this.

Interesting, I've never seen such before.

I agree. It is unique, never seen this combination before. It is not to my personal taste but interesting to see what people have made before!

This is the light brown harris tweed I found a few weeks ago. It's in very good condition, and I do love it. I'm going to consider having the chest reduced (whilst maintaining the normal shape overall) but as it's a bit more complicated I might also just keep it as it is and use it for 'layering up' in the colder months!

Cordings makes some damn fine tweed trous. They are expensive but all tweeds are woven for the shop alone, the cloths are strong and scratchy, the trousers come with side adjusters, high waists, and slim legs. I am confident that one can't find as swell a price-quality deal as these.

Appreciated! Unfortunately they don't quite have the colour/pattern(s) I had in mind, but I'll keep them in mind for the future.
