Really do like this. Bump for more tweed chaps, especially tweed with flannel or cords
I started the damn thread, might as well show up once in a while!
Spoiler: Warning: Spoiler!
That was a nice pick up from Malford. Have you acquired any more tweed since the creation of this thread Spoo? I am very curious to see what your choice of fabric would be.
I wish I would have.... but I have not.
Could you help me, what do you think about this jacket? Is it suitable for me or a little bit short?
Wait, shouldn't we be welcoming you?
That said, length looks decent. Sleeves are a tad long. The collar doesn't sit right, but that might just be because the jacket hasn't broken in yet. You might also consider wearing a shirt when the temperature is clearly below freezing.
That tie goes particularly well with the tweed, very nice combo!
Sorry you are right of course about welcoming. Difficult holidays, you know
I agree that the sleeves could come up a bit. The current style of overly long sleeves will pass so you may as well get them altered to the classic measurement and then they will be correct forever.
I had this made from H&S Sherry Tweed. It's a little light at 11oz, so I'm not sure if this qualifies as a traditional tweed weight-wise. At any rate, after having received it, I'm a bit undecided on the color. I started a thread on pink tweed a while back after being inspired by some Huntsman examples, but in the end I realized I couldn't wear pink tweed, ever. I still was in the mood for a bolder color, so I went with this. After having received it, I either love it or love the idea of it; i.e., sometimes it looks great hanging in the closet, but not so great on my person, and other times, when I'm in more of a FU mood, I think it looks good on. I'm not sure if the color came out accurately on my iPhone, but the second shot from H&S is an accurate representation.
You definitely get points for BOLD. I think, depending on hair and skin color, it might well work very nicely, though not on a gun line.
I really like 4 and 6 in that picture!
If #1 had some sort of overcheck or was a pink plaid, it might be easier to work into a wardrobe. Your poppy (?) is certainly bold, but I think you summed up its wearability pretty well.The others are quite nice, too.
What about a pink vest? It might add some fun to the overall fit without being too bold.
I gotta tell you Spoo, you consistently KNOCK IT OUT OF THE PARK!!!
...lead on o MIghty Spoo, lead on..........
