    Bill Cunningham hits the Tweed Run with pix that are best in the slideshow with his customary enthusiastic voiceover.

    I'm sure I'll catch grief for this, but I find her very pretty. Minnie Driver does it for me too, so maybe I just like that type of face.

    Did you check the inside right front of the jacket? I was in a Brooks Brothers recently which had that exact color herringbone on display, and it was Harris Tweed -- the label was just on the opposite side.

    Yes, I checked both pockets for labels and did not find any reference to size or Harris Tweed, only a wookmark label.

    Personally, I'd browse for better quality on Yoox, or hunt up a Polo tweed. You might even find a similar J. Crew sportcoat on eBay for less -- they blow out their sportcoats and suit coats for $50 at their warehouse sample sales.

    That said, if it fits you well and you like it, go for it. You could do worse.

    I have since had the labels removed! Just no new photos of this combination (wearing dark brown cord pantaloons here)

    I'm somewhat tempted to print this out at A4 size and pin it on our office wall.

    Agree...eBay is your friend. I bought this Brooks Brothers Herringbone tween jacket last week for $35 shipped and its in great shape. Taking it to the tailors today for some alterations.

    Do you not think this is an excellent example of colour? everything just fits, making the girl even prettier.
