This windowpane Tweed Suit from Gant by Michael Bastian is one of the BEST tweed suits that I've seen with the pop of red check as well as red elbow patches and under the collar. Available now Gant.com for $475 for the pants and $995 for the jacket

 

"The wool Bennington check sportcoat with contrasting elbow patches is one of my favourite pieces from Gant by Michael Bastian autumn/winter 2011 because it encapsulates the collection so well. It will enjoy a lot of use from me this season!" (Michael Bastian, designer)

 

This is a truly beautiful piece of clothing; but, unfortunately, one that's out of my and many other people's budget. If I were rich however, and had a spare $1,000 to drop on a sportcoat, this would be the one. I've been a longtime fan of the collaboration Gant has done with Michael Bastian and as this is one of their more recently released pieces, its good to see they're collection is still going strong. This coat has a perfectly balanced aesthetic between the modern and classic details of a sportcoat - the red suede elbow patches and blue/white striped interior lining punch up that classic grey wool print with old school leather buttons. It's sad that this has to be put on my 'wishlist' as opposed to my 'shopping list,' but in the meantime, I'm plenty satisfied just staring at it.
