Full agreement, here.  I have a greener/browner version of Cordera's coat that goes smashingly with both denim and corduroy.  And next winter I'll try some moleskin.

Todays score. 3 yards from the left and middle, five from the one on the right.

 

left will be a normal sport coat, middle will be an overcoat, one on the far right will be an unconstructed hacking jacket and another one if i ever get fat or get marinara sauce on it. Suspect its the kentchurch from bookster. Middle is probably a vintage harris, left is ??? made in britain.

 

all for under 300 USD :)

Where did you get 11 yards for under $300?

A retail store I regularly frequent bought out a tailor's estate, and didnt want to take the time to research the fabrics. They were selling at 25$/yd and "accidentally" cut all mine long because I do a good turn of business with them. Landau's, in Princeton, if you're local.

Good stuff! The medium green on the right doesn't seem like the Kentchurch on my monitor. If you find out what that is and the weight please do let me know. Thanks and and enjoy getting them made up!

Slew, it looks a lot like the etrick tweed I have in the works, heavy stuff, I think 22 oz if I recall. But it does look very nice.

Pretty sure this is it, I had this confused with the kentchurch, as I was considering both and apparently swapped te tags on my samples by mistake.

Liam,
Can you snap pics of different tweeds and post? Maybe there is something interesting there, vintage tweeds.
post #730 of 2078

I'm not over there anymore, but most of the pics I took were tartans, i bought most of the tweeds.... still pretty sweet.

have it made into something, they've a good deal more than that though. I was just taking pictures of tartans because thats what I was considering purchasing.

 

They had worsteds, tweeds, weird specialty stuff, cashmeres, linens, a black llama that would make a beautiful greatcoat. Its worth the drive.

Donegals and herringbone stripe I am considering for odd sport coats, actually, these are the ones that I chose from the bunch.
