So the word literally means "backwards in time", not "out of chronology" as you seem to have guessed.

Any Pic?

Sorry - no pics

Indeed - my summers are mild and short. While I might not wear the vest in July/August, I could easily wear the suit as a two piece every day.

Can anyone suggest a nice tweed in a black and white palette for a sport coat? I am thinking of something like a Russell Plaid in B&W. But maybe a barleycorn could look good. Maybe even a salt and pepper donegal. Examples of made up coats would also be welcome though ultimately I need to choose an available cloth.

For salt & pepper donegal, check out molloy and sons http://www.flickr.com/photos/molloyandsons/
post #8272 of 10758
OK. I think I know now that I don't want a salt & pepper Donegal. Thanks. Something like Forex's Breanish (which I dropped the ball on - will get to it this week) but in a heavier weight would be ideal.

Do you have a b&w herringbone? If not, definitely opt for that, perhaps grey and white, molloy also makes that
post #8274 of 10758
I don't and a B&W herringbone is under consideration. The Molloy one looks nice, but I think I would like a slightly larger scale - not quite overcoat scale, but closer than the one shown on the Molloy site.

I would ask molloy for a sample, if you don't have one that should really be your choice, its very basic ivy style

What about Harrison's Moonbeam? There is a big black an white Glen Plaid.

I already have this Harris Tweed, in a blue palette (with some other flecks thrown in) done up by Paul Winston at Chipp2, so my Ivy herringbone tweed is probably covered

I will look. What is Moonbeam like? Hairy stuff, citified, homespun, etc. Any idea of the weight? I have heard of it, but don't think I have ever looked at the book.

Vox had one made up from callum maclean callum9b at hotmail.com

Nice shade IMO

I don't own a coat from Moonbeam but I made a note of it because Slewfoot has one that he likes. It is soft and spongy and thus Anti-Manton.

See more here.

The 36519 is what I'm thinking of and it is 320 grams.
