The Official Tweed Appreciation Thread - Page 4

post #46 of 2072
I have no tweed, and I really need some. I've scoured eBay to try and find a cheap starter piece, but I've never found any SC that was side vented....all the vintage pieces are single vent. I don't really like the way single vents fit me, all of my SC's and suit jackets are side vents.

NORE - I'm interested to hear more about the 2 RL jackets you posted teasers of. And that goes for anyone else that has some nice side vented tweed pieces.

Here are some pictures for you. First a structured Bladen 3-piece tweed suit:

Then a classic hacking jacket, also from Bladen:

And now for something completely different. An unstructured wool/angora tweed jacket from Magee, cloth woven in Donegal, Ireland:

Not too bad, I say...

Yours,
Mr. Tweed

Bah, shame because I quite like it and I am in the market for a tweed jacket.

Almost all just great - just not sure about the cap and waistcoat in that fifth one. I'm already on record being effusive about that last fit. I'm not sure you ever gave us the details though... suit, tie - who, where?
