big fan of this fabric (despite the creepy headlessness)... can anybody suggest where i might find a similar rtw jacket, or some similar fabric to have one made? new to tweed, and pretty much everything else, haha
The pic is from a Sartoria Partenopea display at Pitti Uomo. The Partenopea label is in red on the cuff. So at least they made a sample coat. If they're not making it RTW, you can probably get it MTM.
thanks mack. after some googling, seems it may be both difficult to find in the nyc area and more than a bit out of my price range, so oh well. i'll have to deep my eyes open on the secondary market. if anybody sees anything similar, i'd sure appreciate a heads-up.
More glorious Harris Tweed ...
^ How much do you have left in your archives, Tweedy?
I really like this one!!
Hmmm, about another 250 images ....
hey T care to give us a definition of Tweed? - as opposed to worsted etc .. thx
EEEK!! That's horrible. I assume there are matching trousers to go with this thing. It looks like a dayglo puke green on my screen.
There's some discussion of this on pages 5-6 of the thread - aroudn post #69 onwards.
I'm looking for a tweed jacket similar to this one. I don't know much about the quality of CT jackets though...does anybody know if this is actually worth the price or if there's something similar of better quality in the same price range? I really like the side vents, which I feel is pretty rare for tweed jackets - most of the ones I've seen are single vent.
If it is Harris Tweed it should be pretty good quality, especially at that price point. I'm not sure if I would pay original price without being able to inspect it in person. Check the return policy for sale merchandise.
I have just received a coat made in the Moss Rust Check Lambswool Magee Donegal 5001 by Bookster. It is a great tweed
