    It's inescapable! I don't even now what it means, hahaha. Thanks though, Thelonius! Haha

    Corbera, is that one of your own? Sharp.

    Do post more FC, I'd like to see a variety of tweed coats and there are not enough photos in this thread.

    I'm a fan of yours. I try to keep within 10 or so post numbers for no reason.

    I think it arises from a play between your name and Will.I.Am, the rapper from the Black Eyed Peas.

    I'm gonna pick up a Bookster jacket this fall, so I hope people can comment on the quality and durability of the product! I'm a tweed man.

    B, what do you typically pair with that tweed?

    Not quick. I would say about three months though it varies with holidays etc.

    As I look back: mostly with dark denim, suede chukkas or bluchers, and a OCBD without a tie. No pocket square. Sometimes with moleskins or corduroy pants in brick-ish tones.

    I was hoping that you wouldn't say gray flannels. I thank you for not disappointing.

    It took me a while to figure out a way to wear it...and I wouldn't insist that how I wear it is entirely successful.

    Sometimes these kinds of patterns are NOTORIOUS to work with... I have a silk / wool blend SC (wore it yesterday) in a similar pattern... Definitely works best with denim and suede.

    I think it would definitely *work* with medium/dark gray flannel, but I hoped that FC would be stepping outside the safety zone. Gorgeous fabric. I bet it's not quite so bold from a few feet away.

    Flannel would werk, fersure, but I think that olive cords might also.
