Tweed 3 Piece Suit

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Looking to buy a tweed 3 piece for my wedding, budget between $1000-1500.  Any suggestions on where to buy from?  I've been looking for quite some time and see haven't found many.  A local tailor can make one but all the fabric available is around 10-11oz, thought about something a little heavier for the northern winter. 

 

Thanks for any thoughts.

Where are you?

O'Connells in Buffalo, NY should probably be able to
"suit" you. My guess is that it'll be MTM for three piece

In the Boston Area The Andover Shop will have what you want
MTM

Both are redoubts of traditional style.

Looking for something like this.  Anyone have an idea what weight fabric it would be?  Local tailor has a lot of 10/11 oz tweed fabric available to order but it feels thin to me.

I think there really is lightweight tweed but for me, tweed starts at 400 g/m². For your photo, I would guess in the 400-650 range.
