Spring for me means that the flannels are put away, but there's still plenty of opportunity for the 3-piece suits.  The extra layer is welcome on the frosty mornings, but isn't too heavy in the warmer-but-still-cool afternoons. This one is livened up by a shirt and tie combo that borders on the festive for me.

Beautiful suit, Roger. BTW that fit #couldabeenacontender for last week's "light coloured tie" challenge.

Clarification needed from OP regarding the "no tweed" rule.

 

1. Please define "tweed". Are we talking about the Wikipedia definition - "Tweed is a rough, unfinished woollen fabric, of a soft, open, flexible texture, resembling cheviot or homespun, but more closely woven. It is made in either plain or twill weave and may have a check or herringbone pattern..." and presumably either made in Scotland or imitating the Scottish fabric?

 

Reason I'm asking is, I've already seen at least two entries featuring suspiciously tweed-looking jackets. Why, there's even a vaguely tweedy fabric visible in one of your "example" photos.

 

2. Is it only tweed jackets that are verboten? Or should there be no tweed visible anywhere in the photo?

 

Thanks in advance.

Modern tweed can be very loosely term, there are a lot of mock tweeds out there that looks like tweed but have different compositions. For me the real deal s something that comes out from Harris, Donegal, Shetland also Saxony, Cheviot comes to mind.

I'll modified my original brief to exclude tweed jackets only.

Looking at the entries so far I don't see any suspiciously tweed looking jackets as you do. Sometimes images can be deceiving. May be others can chime in as well.

Here is great article on tweed.

Great, thanks for the clarification tchoy. Looks like my planned entry will be within the terms of the challenge then. :fistbump:

Okay, I wore this exact outfit this week, for precisely the reason the challenge specifies. I don't do very well in heat, so I tend to move to summer trousers etc. as soon as it gets warm. These pics are from a couple of weeks ago, when it was suddenly early summer-like for a couple of days, but they will do... the first picure is best for fit, the last for colour.

 

Details: Aquascutum wool/silk jacket; Kamakura shirt (in a very fine blue/green grid); Passaggio Cravatte tie; vintage silvertone tie bar; Post-Imperial PS; Mediterranea lightweight wool trousers; Stemar shoes.

Melbourne is in the middle of an autumnal deluge. Despite that, it's still warm and fairly humid, so today I ventured out with clothes that would breathe, and shoes that would not be ruined by walking through puddles.

 

Jacket is from an Italian wool/cashmere/silk weave and therefore in no way tweedy.
