Thinking 3-roll-2 with a throat latch and envelope pockets. But the fabric is already quite thick and substantial - should I just do hacking pockets instead?

Any other style suggestions from people familiar with Harris? Curious to learn what looks best with this tweed.

Three roll three. Crescent pockets, no flaps. Single rear vent. Welt breast.

True three buttons can look great, especially tweeds.

I prefer a hidden throat latch--when not in use, a throat latch looks clutter-y. (On cold/wet days, on the other hand, they're really great to have.) For a three-button, I generally like a healthy roll, but not quite to the middle button.
