I don't know if Mike would, but I might.

I'd want my cape to be more flowy.

You're right- DB with a vest.

I am not just posting the image from that URL for a reason: look at it, gang!

^ That link is harmless to one who has seen Total Recall, Andrew I'm still rather keen on having a houndstooth suit, especially after spotting a pair of HT trousers in beige and brown the other day. I'm fully behind the patch pocketed DB design

Just wrap yourself in the fabric like a bolt and wear it like a DADAist

Yeah, they're better than a third tit; that's for sure. Total Recall turned me right off those :-(

Too much is just right. Go for gold and get the suit

Check out Holdfast's WAYWT threads , he had a RLPL houndstooth that is very elegant.

I've got a suit that is very much like the photo in the original post, except that it is a bit more greenish-brown. It's a winter, country-style suit made from lambswool and the fabric is quite thick and soft. I like to wear it with a pair of wing-tip, brogued boots.

Thread revival. I am currently waiting on a bold houndstooth RL Polo suit. 3 botton. More traditional in color though, tans and browns. I hope it fits. Looks heavy and was too cool to pass up. I really need to move to somewhere cold, since I seem to favor heavier and more winter oriented clothes.

There also seems to be a plethora of English tweeds and houndstooth suits on US E-Bay as of late. Some really cool stuff to choose from.

i love a good houndstooth. but i do agree that it can be pulled off only as an odd jacket. unless you are some eccentric.

i have this rlpl 100% cashmere in charcoal houndstooth with subtle lavender windowpane sportcoat. pure lux
