I meant to say that I don't like it, it could be Huntsman, I have no idea.
Can you recommend me a dark brown herringbone? I don't know if Scabal has anything, LL made a 400 gram shetland but I don't want to get it and pay a higher price,I think it might be available from others.

Be careful and get a swatch first. The brown hb from bookster has green in it, on the computer it looks pure brown.

This is a barleycorn Harris Tweed jacket, Donegal tweed is more randomly flecked
with various colours : )

So what is the stuff I posted? This is a pretty cheap jacket in cotton, but I'd love to replace it in wool.

Looks like a fleckless Donegal.

@Forex: have you checked out Dugdale Brothers? They have a great selection of brown herringbone tweeds.

@ Unbelragazzo: the difference between a barleycorn and a Donegal is that a donegal is a plain weave, with contrasting warp and weft, whereas a barleycorn has a more intricate pattern:

You may find some good fabrics here for moderate prices. I've bought from here and was thinking of ordering something else that is on the bottom picture.icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Where are you sending yours to be made up?

Banis,
I like the first two. Where did you get the red check tweed? Same source?
