If you could only have ONE brown tweed'ish sport coat... - Page 2

post #16 of 59
Tweed is better than wanna-be-tweed (worsted or other). There is a range of choices of weight and textures that most anyone should still be able to choose tweed that works for them. With a herringbone, I do like an overcheck.

Thanks for the replies and suggestions.

I saw here that Will from ASW mentions Glorious Twelfth and the worsted Alsport collections, calling them 'worsted tweeds'. Interesting, but I guess I'd have to see samples to decide if they're tweedy enough for me.

Minnis lambswool sounds interesting as well, but I can't locate it on Huddersfield's site. Anyone have experience with and/or pictures of this?

Parker's suit from the OP is made with P&H Glenroyal, I don't know what Manton's is.

Thanks again.

OP, PH's Glorious 12th will not be nearly "tweedy" enough for you. Think of it as worsted suitings material in country patterns. For all out Tweed look at Hartwist by Harrison's or for something a bit softer either Moonbeam or Glenroyal.

A few guys have the Minnis 7704. Not a solid but in most light, the black overcheck is very understated.

Booksters have tweeds from both P&H's Glorious Twelth and Hardy's Alsport:

And they provide samples.

Pretty sure I agree that Glorious 12th won't be substantial enough for this.

Trying to cover the basics first, so no overcheck this time around. Ed's coat does look great though.

So far Porter & Harding Glenroyal 44512 seems the best bet, judging on pattern, guts and the way the colour comes across in the photo above. Might've been interesting with a larger scale to the herringbone, but I'm not sure.

It could be particularly interesting if those who have had something made up in this and similar materials could comment on their satisfaction with it. Would you do it again or choose something else given the chance? Parker? Manton?

On to details. I have them pretty much mapped out, but how would you make a SB SC in this kind of material up?

There was a beautiful brown herringbone shetland on London Lounge on offer recently it would have been perfect. Sadly it never got made.

Are you happy with the cloth you got for your tweed suit? Maybe share a pic here if you don't mind?

The blue Donegal tweed? Or the brown herringbone faux-tweed?

No, I'm not planning on tripple patch, but I'm considering two cuff buttons...

smile.gif Ah... I like that, though I sometimes think one or three would have been better (on my two-cuff-buttons-jacket).
