    Hello Gents,

    I am thinking about getting a hunting jacket type sportcoat made with Harris Tweed fabric. Most of the tailoring houses I have come across do very formal looking jackets, but I am looking for a less structured and casual jacket something similar to this Nigel Cabourn jacket. This one currently is not available in the type of fabric I am after and Cabourn jackets fit me a little oddly.

    Any names you might be able to recommend? I came across ARN Mercantile which happens to produce for Nigel Cabourn.

    Thanks,

    Thanks for the suggestion. I remember seeing their listings on ebay a longtime ago. The fit I have in mind would be quite a departure from they offer. But, fabric wise it seems worth checking out. Any other suggestions? I am in UK frequently so I can drop by local shops as well.

    Thanks,
