Which fabric is this? Looks great!
Thanks!

The fabric is the cheapest one :). Only $398.

It's a generic fabric called "blue herringbone wool/cashmere". Filter by "pattern" -> "herringbone" and you'll see it. It's listed as 100% wool but that's an error, I believe they said it's 90/10 wool/cash.

Same one I ordered. Was offered a few years back OTR. Great fabric.

I think it would have been better with a lighter color cord jacket.

For me, it's a clash of three styles:

Somewhat casual corduroy jacket in chocolate brown that evokes 70s sitcoms like Welcome Back Cotter
Rugby jersey which is athletic wear and really belongs on the playing field
Wide leg pleated and creased grey trousers that look very business trad
Loafers and belt sort of work with it all

As I said, everything in there is good - just not together. The jacket would be great with some flannels and an ocbd or sweater. The rugby jersey would be great with denim and a Barbour jacket. The trousers could work in any number of sportscoat and tie combinations.
