LL Steed Tweed in action.

That is a fantastic coat (and good looking kid, too!). Getting to be good weather for it, I imagine.

How much does a double-breasted suit made ​​from them?

That's a very classic tweed. Wish I had that in my queue.

beautiful tweed ... it's really very simple. I really like the setting of the neck

Was this ever made or is it just a test?

Thanks and just a test. Will be part of the upcoming Winter subscriptions.

Thought I'd share this, since it mentions the cloth and measurements of a suit from the mothership for Prince Charles:

 

"The Prince steps through the door. He is wearing a classic double-breasted suit in a light grey and blue glen check. Mr Hitchcock recognises it as having been made some time in the 1990s. It has jetted side pockets, no flaps - the Prince, who has a habit of putting his hands in his coat pockets, does not like flaps - 3¾in lapels, 1¾in turn-ups on the trousers and side vents measuring 9½in from the bottom of the coat to the pocket. It is made from pure wool, 11oz, woven by Lesser & Sons in Huddersfield, 'a light weight for this weather,' Mr Hitchcock observes. 'But he's in and out of cars, I suppose.' He is wearing a blue and white Bengal-stripe shirt, a light-blue silk tie, with a silk square tucked in his breast pocket."

Looks good David.

Also, I'm jealous that it's warm enough in NY that you don't need an overcoat.

Thanks although I probably should have had one on! I took off my thick scarf, hat and gloves for a moment to take the photo then right back on.
