    I don't think I'd pay for more then the LL cloths myself. >£100/m is a bit too rich for me, given that my SR tailor includes the price of the cloth unless you chose something exotic like cashmere, vicuna, etc. And that pretty much includes anything in production from pretty much every English mill out there.

    The five closest to the camera are especially fine, especially that blue check. NOM!

    Suggestions For Your Next “Tweed Run”

    After seeing photos from the Nov. 26th 2011 Rugby Ralph Lauren Tweed Run. We noticed there were some who had great style putting together the classic look properly and those who needed a push in the right direction. Conventional taste has guided us safely to this vantage point, but scaling this peak of patterning will require a bit more sartorial acumen. Here are our suggestions to the ideal Tweed Run look for any gentleman.

    Three Keys to Mixing Three Patterns Properly

    1. Risk and Reward go hand in hand.
    2. The safest route to the happy rendezvous of three patterns within one ensemble is where each design differs from the others.
    3. Maintain a consistent amount of contrast and scale within the ensemble’s components, which makes the overall enterprise appear relatively effortless.

    Find all of the items in the photos at ShopTheFinest.com.

    An odd jacket cut in the Danish manner? Interesting but not terribly impressive. I mean, leather shoulder reinforcements? Really? And leather elbow patches long before the sleeves start to wear through? Pfagh! Nice bicycle, though . . .

    Is that a brown herringbone, or gray? I really like the colours.

    Lands End wool/silk tie?

    Thanks! It's brown with a green-ish cast to it. It's a recent acquisition from a consignment shop which fit right off the rack. I have another, very similar jacket which fit the larger me, and I was lamenting the tentishness of it. Kismet. And, yes, that's the tie.

    It's probably a 42. The shoulders still fit, though, so I think it's going on the alterations pile.

    Just discovered these tweed wallets, made from bits of old tweed jackets:
