    Pindots definitely suiting. Macclesfield, depends on the print, but usually would be considered for suiting as well. Doubly so if you are Manton.

    Hmmm... I could be wrong, but I always thought that "HOF" meant "Head of Forum" as, under the old SF layout, the WAYWRN thread was pinned so that it stayed at the top of the menswear threads, hence at the "head of the forum".

    Thanks, I love this jacket. It's actually almost bluish. Any suggestions on the PS? What would you have gone with?

    You're welcome. You do know that I'm not a certified judge in this thread and that I hate the yellowed white balloon hanky in any context, don't you? :)

    Certifications are for accountants and plumbers. I don't care who critiques me as long as it is reasonably thought out coherent. I just like having a silk PS with rough fabrics because I'm a deviant.

    Is it OK for me to dislike double stitching except on the gnarliest tweed jackets?

    This is an odd jacket with mid-gray pants.
