    Here's pictures of the ones I had. If I wasn't such a disgusting fat body, this suit would still be mine. [​IMG] 25% Alpaca IIRC. Such a cool suit. I should have just starved myself for a month looking at this in retrospect. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    It would be a tweed suit, donegal most likely, if that matters.

    The real question is not whether I get patch pockets; it's whether I get a vest.


    I would prefer a buttoned sweater vest with that. That would kick the normal vest's ass.

    A three-piece all-patch suit in Lesser cloth with drape would be the ultimate iGent suit.

    I would go with plus fours with that instead of long trousers...this way, you can show off super luxury cashmere "sockings" from Kabbaz.

    Don't forget matching tweed cap.

    I've made patch on a vest for a client but the vest cloth matched the trouser and both were worn with sportcoats. That was his signature look. Never made him a suit or a sportcoat without a vest.

    What do you think of a full 3 piece patch? Does the vest have to have patch pockets? If so, I probably won't do it.

    Here is the cloth I have in mind (or something like it):

    Lesser does not make Donegal, or any tweed for that matter.

    You forgot the button boots.

    Tweed is more iGent than Lesser? Debatable, I'd debate.

    my newly acquired Bill Bixby houndstooth 3-piece came with patch pockets on all three in front on the jacket.
    looks rather nice to my eye.


    Bill Bixby, the guy who played the Incredible Hulk in the TV series?



    BTW, what is a three piece suit [​IMG]

    I didn't say that, I just said that Lesser does not make Donegal, hence my suit will not be Lesser.

    As for what is more iGent, I suggest you ask the experts on the FNB forum.

    Oh, I missed where you said you were getting a tweed suit. Well, regardless, you've scaled the iGent mountain.

    This will be a tweed suit? That changes everything.

    I would never get patch on worsted, and not on most flannels, either. The flannel BlazerSuit will probably be the only one.

    Would you get patch pockets on the coat of a three piece suit? How would you do the vest pockets?

    NO.
