First up, light grey Herringbone Sydney 38R Suit. All the stuff you used to like about Herringbone, 3 roll 2, side vents, working button holes, 2 inch cuffs, split curtain waistband etc etc. Asking $150 shipped reg post (add $10 for express) within Australia and I'll throw in the tie you can see on the main pic, which is a 7 fold sample from my first season.

Prefer the pattern larger and the cloth more textured; though your suggestion would work better as a suit. But I would prefer a grey herringbone sport coat myself.

The fabric is an oxford like weave, and it's only quarter lined, fully canvassed. Made in Italy. Not a 2 roll 3, more like a 3 roll 2.5. Patch pockets and side vents. $140 Shipped reg post (add $10 for express).

This is probably my favourite picture of grey herringbone I've found online; I like the larger pattern and more textured tweed along with this; though such a fabric would most likely be too warm for Straya's weather :(

 

I've got one identical to this:

Thanks, Jason.

Yes, my HC gloves are certainly getting some love these days.

In the "You wouldn't read about it" department, my son came downstairs to show me his old ties with a view to replacing them. I have no idea where he got this NWOT item from.

Chip off the old block I say! Congrats!

DB- Wasn't actually after a SC (damn you and your temptationslol8[1].gif), just someone mentioned grey herringbone. Parents are brown and watching cricket, me getting bored and playing blocks with my kids at their house......

JM- Great Jacket!(again sadly in the no purchase club this monthconfused.gif)

 

Went and checked out some Inis Meain again at HB, absolutely awesome stuff (I even tempt myself sometimes), but way out of a price range I could afford.....

Bunny, I don't know how much they're charging at Henry Bucks, but even though Inis Meain jumpers are very expensive, a friend of mine bought a couple (well, I'm not sure if they're Inis Meain, but they're hand-knitted Irish jumpers) whilst in Ireland 15 or 16 years ago and they're still going strong despite getting a lot of wear every winter.

Basically, they're the sort of jumpers that, if you keep them away from moths and silverfish, they'll last you for some decades.

By the way, I still can't post photos to StyleForum, for some reason - it seems that Apple and SF aren't very compatible at the moment (at least for me).

So, in the absence of being able to post photos on SF, I've just put up a Tumblr post about some shirts that I had made recently:

http://brown-in-town.tumblr.com/post/55318263253/acorn-x-deer-style-a-few-months-ago-i-ordered

They're excellent, and I was very happy with the end result, particularly as the Acorn cloth is so nice.

Yes, definitely JM! Just touching (erghh) the, you can tell just how reliable and hardy they are! I would definitely pick one up of they were at a discount or something but the asking price is hard to swallow! Somewhere around $800 for the shawl collar cardigan I liked at HB; added to that they are very hard to find online. Great stuff nonetheless!
post #34317 of 48486

$800?

 

Definitely can be found for cheaper online - it's just that each store has a really specific range!

 

... there's no doubt Inis Meain is one of the finest knitwear producers in the world though.

Is the cricket causing the browning or the rays from the TV or something else?
