    Very nice, @JHT652!
    I like single monks so much more than doubles.

    To @Butler and @tchoy , what means the term 'lovat'? Is it related to the pattern, the fabric or the shape of the jacket?

    Thanks!

    There are two meanings AFAIK - one is in reference to the tweed produced by Lovat Mill, which is on the Teviot River in Hawick, and the other is a particular blue-green colour tweed. In this case, I think both are referring to the former - although Butler's tie looks like it might also be the latter!

    Lovat green is usually described the bluish green colour used in tweeds and woollens cloths or garments from Scotland from my understanding

    In @Butler case his tweed cloth came from Lovat Mill.

    According to Google, lovat is a muted shade of green, used particularly for tweeds and woolens.

    Been lurkin around for a while
    Sorry for the grainy pic, lighting was off
    Could anyone comment on my pants fit?
    Wondering whether to go for a single forward pleat and increasing leg opening width on less casual fabrics

    ^ Man, if it wasn't for how well you dress, you could easily pass for Johnny Knoxville.

    EDIT: oops, Gnatty snuck one in. I was referring to PandArts.

    ljhrox - Because you are very lean I would add a forward pleat to the pants to add some breadth...and drop them down a bit. Keep the same leg opening but have a slightly lower rise next time.
