Thank you, but the most important thing, thanks to the forum, towards the positive thinking!

The cloth is indeed the so-called Agnelli Tweed. It's not especially heavy and really does not seem at all tweed-like. The photo that started this discussion was originally tweeted by Steed and, in my opinion, looks pretty darn good. But then I'm a happy customer of theirs, so I guess I have a bias.

 

I like ticket pockets. My DB will have a ticket pocket. All my bespoke jackets have them, except a blazer with patch pockets currently being finished up by Steed. The Agnelli Tweed is not being made up by Steed, though. I have enough things currently in the pipeline with Steed that I decided to spread things around a bit.


And here's the finished suit:

This looks really good as a DB Andy. I have a length of this cloth that I'm on the fence about funding due to the weight.  Does it wear on the cool side for a "tweed?"

Just FYI, those reading StyFo on mobile devices can't see your sig.

That's a good question. I've only worn it a couple of times thus far, so my experience with it is limited. I'd say it's a good cool weather cloth. It's not really what I think of as a tweed, meaning it's not all that heavy. I wouldn't want to wear it when the weather turns warm, certainly, but equally I think it's not going to keep you warm when the temperature drops into the 40s or below.

 

So in that regard, it might be a good transitional cloth. For a winter day I would want to let an overcoat and scarf do the heavy lifting of keeping me warm, but once you took the overcoat off you wouldn't overheat indoors.

Thanks. I had a feeling that would be the case, but wanted to get feedback before taking the plunge.  Sounds like it could be useful in a (mostly) mild winter climate. Any others watching this thread who have had this made up?
