So you suggest that you shouldn't let your instincts, thoughts, and feelings influence your life? Super.

Also part of the natural workings of any intelligent brain is not letting arbitrary and completely meaningless associations like that influence one's life.

 

Would you mind explaining this to my wife?

I kind of want to make an SC from one of these. What do we think? I don't think a lot of tweed look that good on me but I thought I could make something bold work alright.

Those tattersall patterns are more traditionally used for odd vests, but you could do a SC I suppose.

Also depends on the pattern size.

Tattersall sportcoat would look terrible. Don't do it. It would come across as a novelty coat at best. There are plenty of bold gun clubs/checks that would work instead.

If you proceed, make sure the material is sufficiently durable.

In this case, I think that fragility has its own virtues.
