It was my favorite as well. Getting past the greatness of the mixes of texture and patterns, the collar was fantastic. Who makes the shirt?

Hoping some of the old heads will weigh in on this gray odd jacket:

Me gusta.

It's grey but a large, bold plaid. Looks like a proper sportscoat.

And I like that pattern quite a bit. A cool take on the traditional tweed checks in a color pallete better suited to city wear.

Me gusta también.

Really like the fabric. The position of the left pocket seems off, but it is probably the angle.

Sb, are you asking as in, you are going to buy or have bought the jacket or are you asking about the fabric as in, you are thinking of getting something similar made?
post #9667 of 13589
Great looking jacket, SB. Dibs if you don't want it.

It would look good with some denim overalls...........

Denim overalls are best worn all by themselves. Too far on the "country" scale.

This is a Timothy Everest piece he posted on his blog. The gray SC gets slagged a lot around here, and I was just kinda taking the temperature of conventional wisdom and confirming my understanding of that CW.

Ah ok, so then.......................

I'll be the wet blanket here. I don't hate it, but to me its kind of "generic". Similar pattern is done in a lot of different colorways and I just find it boring, and I find it to be not loud/bold enough actually. Grey odd jackets are tough and I always first suggest a large scale PoW to anyone who wants a grey odd jacket, or a donegal. Grey is such a great color as a foundation of an outfit in which to add colors through other items that I prefer simpler patterns for grey jackets. If you want to go patterned, then I would suggest something with a much larger scale than that jacket. There is nothing wrong with that jacket but I find it underwhelming.

Here is what I mean by large scale PoW or an interesting grey donegal taht can be paired better than the jacket above and I find more interesting visually than that:

I, too, like the mid-gray donegals. I'm not certain, but I think I may not be a fan of large POW checks for SCs. I love POW at a suiting scale, but I find that I more attracted to bold checks with some color. Of my odd jackets, this is probably my favorite:

i like that SC, SB. but i think id like it even better as a suit. peepwall[1].gif

It's a true tweed, and the weave is too loose for trousers. They'd bag out immediately. They'd make linen look crisp.

that is a shame. frown.gif
