    The last one does not count. You aspire, but do not reach.

    What about this?

    I have some that are similar, and while I do not think they qualify as horse blankets, I acknowledge that others could reasonably disagree. But your first entry was an unreasonable submission. A horse blanket needs loud, assertive plaids - a simple windowpane, even over herringbone shouldn't be enough

    How about this?

    [​IMG]

    The reason I did not post it the first time is that A) it is a suit, not a jacket; and B) it is worsted, which seems like cheating.

    That houndstooth, BTW, is the loudest coat I have. I have a greed tweed with a blue windowpane, but it is really not all that loud.

    I am starting to think that the lack of horse blanketing is major hole in my wardrobe.

    I don't understand - is it just anything remotely tweedy or patterned?

    "Horse Blanket" is a subset of "Loud"
    Not all "Loud" need be "Horse Blanket"

    Sorry. I don't have the symbols handy, but you get it.

    I know, that's why I figured the suit does not count.

    I do not have a true horseblanket jacket. I am not really an iGent after all. [​IMG]

    Matt, T4, any Shetlands you might suggest? Books or individual cloths?

    Unfortunately, I have nothing that qualifies. But I aspire.

    Yeah, the dwarf nailed me on that one.

    As I said, I have nothing that qualifies. I am sad. Must get one. But what?

    There are a few more colorways of the one Jan and I are shown wearing. I think it comes from Islay Woolens.
