    Anyone know of any lines doing tweed overcoats (plaid or puppytooth) for winter? i was thinking of commissioning one, but may just go RTW...$$ tight this year with all the shoos I'm wanting!

    Well, the jacket and waistcoat are amazing, but the trousers needed some changes. Pictures as soon as I get them...

    I have seen such things on the D.S.Dundee website in past seasons. Also, would FSC be worth considering?

    a couple of my casual "rough" tweeds. I love the texture of Harris. The rough tweed seems to go well with "scraggy" trousers, even jeans.
