    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.

    Doormeuil Tweed, made up very light and soft. Really looks luxe.

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

    Made by these people: http://shop.carryjetsam.com/

    At only $38, i'm having one, provided they ship to the UK.

    Lovely shape on the patch breast pocket and lapel roll. I like the soft construction as well.

    I image they would stick in your pocket when you try to put them in and out.

    Money is too important to keep anywhere but a brown or black leather wallet.
