    Wondering what are some of your thoughts on this cloth?

    I'm looking for a grey suit that is less formal than my dark grey worsted, and am looking at one of their grey herringbone fabrics.

    To me it seems to be a nicely country enough to be fairly casual but has enough of a smooth worsted aspect to be wearable in the city (whereas a full Harris Tweed suit or something of the like might look a bit goofy IMO.)

    In getting the best of both worlds with worsted tweed do you miss out on the rusticness of tweed and the lustre and formalty of a worsted?

    If anyone has any pictures of it made up that would be very helpful as well.

    There is no reason why one of the herringbones (which I like very much) couldn't be a suit wearable in the city. I wouldn't wear it in a London bank or law firm, but you should be fine anywhere else.
