Might be a good project for LL as I did mention it to Michael before and he seemed keen on it.

dopey - Moonbeam for sportcoats and Coops for suiting sounds good to me!

Concordia - that is nice although a bit darker than I'd ideally like. May ask for a swatch though.

If you like the Moonbeam, you might also take a look at the Lamlana book from W Bill. Very similar. I made up a jacket in B & W glen plain from that book and it has held up very well.

Their diamond patterns are lighter still, IIRC. Small but nice collection.

Nobody here actually wears diamond patterns, do they?

I keep thinking I should get one as a matter of principle, but then I think I would have to actually have to wear it. I am waiting to see it looking god in real life. Hasn't happened yet.

I did see a bunch of old guys hanging around today in nice, fluffy looking, luxe fake tweed sport coats. I think I am ok with that, though it would be a first for me.

Something Réginald-Jérôme de Mans would sport, perhaps?

If I had 200 tweed jackets one of those would be my 201.

There is a great photo of Astaire wearing one after tennis. It isn't bad looking per se. But it has fallen so far out of use as to be aggressively eccentric.

Some hip RTW fashion line aimed at younger customers made one last season. Curious on how many they sold.

You say that as if it's a bad thing. :smarmy:
