    It's not wool tweed but 100% Linen. Navy. From Valstar. Picked it up from NMWA a few years ago. I listed it on B&S and fortunately did not sell it, realizing it looked great with the sleeves pushed up and pocket buttons undone.

    It has a nice waist cinch. You can see the stone/horn? endings to cinch:

    I wasn’t going to post this because OP was looking for tweed and I got the impression it might be for tempature reasons, but this is one of my favorite finds:

    Carrol and Co 100% flax herringbone safari coat. It has a summer tweed vibe.

    Thank you for posting....both nice jackets, but you are right. I was trying to figure out the use of tweed in this particular tropics-inspired style and whether it worked or not. :)

    But I do love a good herringbone anytime !

    Is a tweed mountain parka an oxymoron?
    Thought this could be related so wanted to share the deadstock herringbone mountain parka from Woolrich I bought today.
    Made in USA for 04AW German market I believe.
    Maybe it is prevalent in NA but quite rare in Europe.
    Looking forward to what @dieworkwear may say!
