I also like this one from Manton:

but it might be too dark IRL, especially without the flash...

beautiful, but could use a subtle overplaid.

Adding to the pictorial catalog of brown "tweed" sportcoats. (This one is technically wool-cotton)

Love these new style soft shoulder jackets Corneliani is doing

A modern Ivy /Neapolitan jacket?
I prefer it.

It is the antithesis of the very British structured Huntsman style below;

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

The jacket I posted has zero structured and is not British.

After a bit of a delay I will be picking the completed jacket up from NSM next month when they are in SF. Perfect timing for fall. Here is a pic of the jacket from a fitting. It has more bone coloring in it than Kaplan's pic. But I did that intentionally because I wanted a "fresh", updated color combination that wasn't a literal copy of classic patterns. I find that many of the classic tweed color combinations can make a guy look older and I'm not going for that look. Plus, the trends are to wear more lighter colored neutrals in winter and those will pair nicely with the bone color in the pattern. (beige pants, oatmeal heather sweater, etc.).

As far as the Kaplan's question, I've owned something very similar to his pic. I found brown on brown a bit dull when wearing it perhaps due to my skin/hair color. I later found a tweed combining a brown with a deep mossy green to be an ideal combination. The addition of green gave it a lot more contrast and color variety.

^ Looking very much forward to seeing the finished result. Do you know the weight of the cloth?

I don't. The pic I took of the fabric swatch didn't have that info. But, it is a heavy wool cashmere blend. Similar to a weight you might choose for a winter top coat/ overcoat. I was looking for something to wear on cold days in the fall/winter with a scarf and jeans or flannels. I was inspired by fabrics found on an Arny's of Paris Forester and some old Hollywood pics of David Niven but in a trimmer cut with odd jacket proportions.

I have a jacket made of a medium brown, herringbone donegal from a W. Bill book. I really enjoy it. Got it in the config Trini suggested.

The fabric's lighter in color than the pic in the OP and very soft. I thought it was lambswool. The weight was 14 oz iirc. The book has many shades and is well worth a look imho. I think Slewfoot has a suit made in a dark brown tweed from that book.

If ypur're patient enough to shop around ebay you'll find some nice items there, I bought a vintage grey harris tweed for about $30 dollars

Ah, ok. That sounds too heavy for what I want. From talking to Parker about his experience with Glenroyal (430g) I'll be wanting something lighter. From what I've seen of your coat so far it does look great though.

Sounds nice. Are there any pics of this floating around?
