    Ed, what are you making? Love the top four patterns (PoW & Hounds tooth) on the right.

    It's a nice enough jacket, but I love that tie.

    I just received 3m of Gala tweed from Lovat Mill (see pic) with plans for a 3/2 SC inspired by Spoo & Butler. Would patch pockets (with a welt breast pocket) be overkill with such a powerful cloth?

    Not to my eye. So stunning a tweed fairly screams a need for pockets as you describe. If you were too shy for the pockets you'd never have ordered that cloth in the first place. Carry on, that man!

    I would support a nomination of that tweed as the Official Tweed of Style Forum[​IMG]

    yeah, those four are great but they are all really nice, my pics are awful and you need to see them up close to appreciate the colors/patterns. I'm ordering about 6-8 of them, here are better pics:

    No argument from me :cheers:

    I guess it works as a sport jacket in the autumn as well, with T and A corn shirt, Rubinacci cashmere tie, Mulberry belt and Cordings cotton PS, moleskins plus JL suedes :bigstar:

    Very true, no sense in half-assing it now!

    Impeccable as always Butler.

    I've been digging this recently. A London Lounge fabric that never got made.

    An excellent lesson on how to wear an emblematic tie.
