    ^^^^ I kind of like the headless mannequin. He looks so calm and collected. As for the red and white herringbone sportcoat, I saw a woman wearing a similar but more vibrantly red fabric as an overcoat. I really like it.

    Hooman Majd in a vintage sportcoat (GQ):

    Harris Tweed vomited on a bag (Tommy Ton for GQ)---I have a jacket in Harris Tweed almost identical to the lower right!

    Is this Wooster? I'm not intimately acquainted with his jaw line (Tommy Ton for GQ again)---my favorite thing about this is the orange knot in the lapel; I actually don't like the tweed on tweed on tweed (particularly the herringbone tie) here, since more varied textures would have been more appealing... not to mention the "sprezzy" unfastened collar tab:

    You could get similar fabric here, and get it made up for you?

    Interesting selection of ready made jackets for ~$300 USD.

    Like this one in particular:

    Harris Tweed and Knitwear

    Sent them an email about sizes and availability of jackets in other fabrics. Will post response here.

    Perhaps I'd look a little calmer without a head too, haha. I love this jacket and the vivid checks, but I've never been one for leather elbow patches.
