Who makes a large pattern houndstooth SC?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I am trying to find a larger patterned houndstooth SC, with good quality, off the rack. I currently have a brown/tan Belvest but I would like something with a larger pattern size. Does anyone own one of these or know of places I can look? Thanks.

I remember seeing some Etro ones a year or two ago. (sorry I realize that's not very helpful)

I'm even less helpful but I saw someone wearing a great one last weekend. Let us know what you find.

Sure it helps and thanks, I am to the point where I am starting to search e-bay even. I have been looking for a while now, can't find them anywhere.

Yes approx this size, and thanks again. Hopefully something in a dark brown/tan color combo.

Something like this? I am not sure anybody even makes a houndstooth this big anymore, custom or OTR. http://img57.imageshack.us/img57/7043/tw001ww3.jpg

Really nice Matt. This is exactly what I want, the pattern is perfect and I like the patch pockets too. Is it yours? The hanger looks like the Zegna mtm hanger.

Yes, it is mine. The fabric, I believe, is from the 60s, though. I bought the hangers (I think they are the same Zegna uses) separately.

Didn't the DOW have a large houndstooth suit in almost exactly that fabric?

Bally has both a SC and pants in large dark brown houndstooth this year. Has been shown in several of their shoe ads.

If you go
http://www.bally.com/main/E/fr_principale.html
then click on "collections" the pic on the right has a large brown houndstooth sc.



If you are looking for red houndstooth, Howard has some. Much as I would like to make a suit out of that, even for me, it is a little bold.


Enjoy.

I had this made a while ago and rarely wear it because I think its too loud. http://img410.imageshack.us/img410/5821/cimg0574gw0.jpg Interestingly however this season I see a lot of big hounsndstooths around in odd jackets - RL and Zegna being two that come to mind.

That doesn't seem loud at all. It's definitely an awesome fall jacket

you should dust that thing off, it's definitely not too loud

it totally needs to be worn with a slightly oversized scarf up top
