    I don't see a place for this material in my wardrobe. The main reason is that it makes me look fat, and I'm already on the chubby side. Who here looks good in tweed?

    Can't you just get a tweed jacket made that fits well to your shape? Its not really that different to wearing any other jacket if you get the right fit and colour (grey or navy is my preference, the browns look too "country", but tweed can add a touch of class (in my opinion) over a regular sports jacket. I'm a slim guy, so good cuts of pretty much anything look flattering, and I would wear something like this along with a crisp white shirt and jeans, with some brown leather loafers that im fond of http://www.tweed-jacket.com/GALLERY%...ye%201_jpg.htm [​IMG]

    My next commission will be SB 1 button Harris tweed suit... I think how flattering a garment looks is dependent on the cut and fit. I've seen plenty of examples of flattering tweed garments on gentleman with less than Adonis-like physiques...

    One of the joys of winter in these parts is wearing tweed. Yes, I still wear it. I love it.

    I find tweed to be the final frontier....so much to explore.

    Tons of hidden gems can be found in second hand stores, W.Bill's underground bunker, Huntsman's special house tweeds....the list goes on.

    Tweed sweaters (especially shawl collar cardigans), tweed trousers....and experimenting with tweed shirt jackets....not to mention the tweed odd jacket (the ultimate tweed item)

    That sweater (vest?) looks pretty awesome. Any idea where to get it?
