    I'm considering the Quincey overcoat and debating between the heavyweight navy wool/cashmere or the cobalt check Harris tweed. A navy mac overcoat is a bit of a classic and the I'm assuming the cashmere would make it very soft. I have a couple pairs of Italian-milled wool/cashmere trousers and the hand on them is very plush.
    However, I really like the character of the pattern on the tweed. Coats in a fabric like that are rare. My concern is how punchy the pattern is and how it will play out in a full overcoat. Will it be so loud that it becomes a "statement" piece or could it be worn casually?

    Tangentially, I have a Southwick sport coat made up in the Navy/Rust houndstooth tweed and it is so awesome. If I wore that with the tweed overcoat I think I would probably either lose my Styleforum cred or just ascend immediately to Tweed Valhalla.

    Pretty sure you would gain SF cred!

    I almost got that fabric for my Quincy, but went with a different Tweed. It was a tough choice though, as my ultimate style goal is basically to look like Max von Sydow in Three Days of the Condor.
