How would this windowpane work as an odd jacket? 8.5 oz super 120s

I'd say it looks more like jacketing than suiting. I'd do it. Peak lapel, even.

^^ I agree, it would look nice as a sport coat with hip patch pockets. Not sure how durable that fabric is though.

Definitely, especially with patch pockets. I like it!

May not be the best example but you can get the idea from Suit Supply.

Peak Lapel: http://www.suitsupply.com/on/demandware.store/Sites-INT-Site/en_US/Product-Show?pid=P3301&start=62&cgid=Suits
Notch Lapel: http://us.suitsupply.com/suit-blue-check-lazio-3p-p3431/P3431,en_US,pd.html

If the windowpane is too bold, for my taste it will be too heavy as a suit however I can see that will work as an odd jacket with charcoal, dark or medium gray trousers.

Hi Guys - does anyone have a photograph of the H.E. Box 32oz cavalry twill? I believe it's #9002. Thanks!

I know I have a swatch somewhere. Finding it, though .... may be a challenge.

Slewfoot...just send a buzz to HE Box...they sent me out a sample of this exact cloth a few years ago

I thought it was Melton wool...but instead was Cavalry Twill (I was looking for a warm cloth for a bespoke Navy Peacoat)

I found this Cavalry twill cloth to be too rough for what I desired...and too dark

Thanks Michael! I hope to have a swatch coming my way.
