    Thanks. It's thrifted, no tags to indicate maker, though it is Harris Tweed. Bought it because I also liked the shape.

    Unfortunately it's a smidge long on me and has one shoulder that is a bit wonky--one of those things that I don't think most people would notice, but drives me nuts.

    I got a lovely tweed shooting jacket over the 'Net that I paid $45 for. Then it cost me another $130 in tailoring but, hey! It looks as good as any $6-800 jacket so no worries, mate.

    Looking at Spoos post, even now the more I look at Tweed the more pleasure I obtain from it. the variation in texture,colour and weave style. [​IMG]

    The fabric looks great! although I admit to the design being too metro-sexual for my taste

    I love everything about this but the hat. Something with a brim would make it so much better

    Not technically tweed, but I thought this would fit here:

    What's the thought on a fabric like this? Too busy up close for office wear?

    That would lead to a fairly obvious conclusion.

    I like that, SB. Loud plaid, but it definitely works.

    +1 looks good. Are those trousers actually green-ish?
