Good call. I have one very similar, but house-cut with hacking pockets & 3 button. The fabric is perfect for a jacket separate.

3 so far. Medium herringbone tweeds are great, as are bolder PoWs. IMO the short length of the TaT jacket works great as a stand-alone. Now, if I wear any other brand of sport coats they always look like orphaned suit jackets to my eye.
