Liam O The sort of cloth you describe sounds great, wouldn't mind something like that myself. You can have any sort of pockets you like, though besom might be a bit weird as they are quite formal for an informal cloth like tweed. Patch pockets on tweed are fine. In fact they're great. On their own they won't make it look like a norfolk. There are hundreds of examples to be found across various threads here. Technically it's not really a hacking jacket if it doesn't have hacking pockets - it's just a tweed odd jacket. But let's not worry about terminology. You'll probably need 2.5m of cloth, but ask the tailor. Unlined would be great but few tailors will do it (in my experience and from I've read of others here), and I wouldn't press a tailor to do it if they don't want to. Buttons should be brown horn, or possibly leather. With the herringbone, overcheck and possibly patch pockets, you have enough going on already. With tailors as with everything you get what you pay for. A $150 coat is a $150 coat, whether it's MTM, OTR or bespoke (almost certainly won't be bespoke) - personally I'd rather a decent OTR tweed coat than a crappy "custom" one. In short, go to the best tailor you can afford. Best of luck and enjoy.
