    I love tweed, I don't think this is news to anyone who knows me. I'm also a fan of odd jackets/trousers combinations. I think it ups the level of difficulty, and gives you an expanded palette, on which you can display your personal style. The rules: 1. Outfit must be worn this week. 2. Outfit shall contain a tweed jacket/SC + odd trousers/pants (all levels of formality allowed). 3. Outfit can be either CM or SWD. 4. Outfit must be posted Before Saturday evening Swedish time. I hope to see some great outfits this week! Inspiration

    The Drake's ad has so much win. My style in one frame. Saw the jacket in their London store last week. Both on one of the guys in the store and on hanger. Such a perfect brown SC.

    Well, this works well with what I wore Sunday:

    Vintage Harris Tweed sack from a long-defunct Kentucky men's store, Graves-Cox. Thrifted for $3.99, incidentally.

    No worries.

    It sounds like Cleav’s going to enter, so we have a winner …

    What’s the next challenge going to be, mate? [​IMG]

    Cheers,

    Take 1. Just happened to be wearing a tweed SC today (EDIT: Just noticed that my colleague tossed those dry erase markers under my desk. He's weird.)
