A great little documentary about tweed. For those of you on the other side of the pond, Vic Reeves is best known as one half of surrealist comedy duo Reeves and Mortimer.

That is great! Now I want to design and weave my own tweed. It's like bespoke squared.

^Gorgeous coat. Are those hacking pockets or just the angle of the photo?

Does a medium gray tweed jacket work alright with khaki pants?

Probably not as well as it would work with many other things, although would need to see the exact fabrics to be sure.

Yeah, you know you've made it when you can design your own tweed and have a bespoke suit made from it!

^ I admire his balls for expecting people to line up to shell out £70 a metre for single-width tweed (meaning a jacket will need ~£300-350 worth of fabric) with NO swatch.

we only need 4 meters for a suit so no idea why he says you need 7.5 per suit
