I seem to remember that Leonard Logsdail does these, no?

In any event, I really like the gun check fabric Vox. I have an old Dunhill not too far away from that.

I think all jackets, both suit and sportcoat, look better once they start to bag a bit and you start to see the impression you have left on them.

Beautiful Matt. Is this a Rubinacci fabric? How heavy?

They are in fact excellent wines according to several wine aficionados I know.

Well, it was worth a try. Personally, I believe the tweed universe is big enough for the lightweight Shetlands and the heavyweights. I've got a stack of fabrics that includes a couple Breanishs as well some heavyweights, all waiting to be turned into clothes.

Yeah, not much going on. Really quiet.

sorry for having the wrong orientation

Obviously not for every occasion, but a great look. Your tailor seems to have figured out the essence of 3-button.

BTW, we don't discriminate on the basis of orientation around here.

Coming ridiculously late to this, but isn't Harris tweed single ply? It makes up for it by being typically around 500g, but still.

Hand loomed tweed tends to be singly ply, no?

I like my high tech Scabal Shetland, personally. As long as they don't put diamond dust in it, I am happy.
