i am in the market for a couple of tweed jackets. I recently purchased an nice brown/olive one from RL but was thinking about complimenting it with a gray herringbone. i have heard good things of bookster (www.tweed-jacket.com) and was thinking of ordering from there. i'm leaning to something like this: http://www.tweed-jacket.com/GALLERY%...0waist_jpg.htm i would only have black velvet on the collar and have traditional jacket cuffs (not turnback). what do you guys think about that look? p.s. i am a guy but that is the only picture i could find with the detailing i was looking for

The collar probably would make it strange-looking, like a cross between an odd jacket and outerwear. There are many other stylistic flourishes you could choose without resulting in weirdness.
