Maybe do some pick stitching at my desk?

Just use a stapler.

If it was a light grey suit, maybe.

Noodlers:  in my mind I can see a new addition to my rotation of odd jackets.  It's a mid-brown herringbone that resolves to solid from a distance.  Something I can wear with tan flannels or light/mid-gray flannels, but distinguishable from a dark brown jacket I already have.  I'm also open to alternative suggestions if you think I'm going down the wrong path.  Thanks to Clags and Heldentenor for their input so far.

 

Here are the swatches I'm looking at:

 

 

 

 

I like 21, 26 and 18, but cannot make a decision because I have realized I have zero skill imagining how these will look made up.  Here are a few pictures I like color-wise:

Tweed herringbone brown jacket

 

 

I'm thinking something in this range.  Help me make a decision.

I have 26, and I am almost positive that 18 is the best bet for an odd jacket.

I think 18 will resolve to brown better, but personally prefer 26. I have something similar that gets a lot of use.

I like 3 and 18.

Do you now think your tweed suit is 26?  I'd like to hear more of your thoughts on 18 as I am strangely intrigued by this one, even though it is not quite what I had in mind originally.

The third picture is KW MTM, which was not 26, but which KW says is very close to 26.  That KW picture is what got me originally thinking that I need a brown herringbone jacket.

In case it's any help, this photo from @jrd617 is pretty great comparison shot for a number of brown herringbone fabrics. (From this post: http://www.styleforum.net/t/56404/unfunded-liabilities-a-k-a-the-cloth-thread/9200_50#post_7022265.)

Why would you want your tweed to have a more refined texture?

I'm not a huge fan of tweed, but I do enjoy the color variegation and pattern in that swatch, so that swatch represents the best of both worlds.

#18 for me. Pair it with mid or dark grey pants and call it a day.
