Thoughts on this Johnstons of Elgin Saxony Tweed?

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 

Loving the Johnstons tweed shown in the link below (made as a women's coat, but you get the idea) but fear it may be too loud (even for a heavyweight tweed). Thoughts?

Not for a first tweed coat perhaps, but as a FU piece...

A little lavender goes a long way.

I think it's gorgeous. Not for me, since I'm kinda shrimpy and must beware Dreaded PeeWee Herman Syndrome, but if you're a bigger guy and/or wanting to make a bit of a play, it could rock.

+Roger; maybe not for a first tweed.

Unsubtle. No class.

For women, the coat it looks attractive. On men, not really.

Perhaps because seeing the tweed on a woman "primes" you into thinking it's a women's fabric only. In the UK, loud colours on tweed are part of the establishment, really. Case in point:

 Examples? I know Scottie Derby has something similar, but not really to my taste.

I am anxious to hear any recommendations for tweed coats. Specifically, I'm looking for a tweed overcoat.

Suggestions?

Examples of loud, garish tweeds?
