I love both of those, especially the rust coloured tweed.
I could easily see the blue as the jacket and the rust in a pair of slacks . . . with pleats, cuffs and suspenders!
Were the pants from the special order cloth? I think deadline was August 20th.
Nope, these will go live on the site today i believe...I happened to walk in to the store as they were getting em in.
Thanks. How is the weight for Los Angeles? Hopefully i get to visit the Epaulet Brick and Mortar store soon.
As the cooler time of the year approaches, your question is a good one. How much tweed can one wear in mild-winter SoCal? The answer, of course, depends on how warm you are naturally but several of us out here are quite happy to wear 12-14 oz. tweed jackets, especially in the evening when the sea breeze kicks in. Additionally, it's a good weight for those bright windy days right after a storm blows through and the high's are in the 50's. Naturally during one of our periodic winter heat waves it's back to shorts and aloha shirts but most of the time from October through March 12-14 oz. tweed is quite comfortable. Anything heavier than that, though, is too much of a good thing.
Anyone who doesn't have this tweed is not a tweed aficionado:
Now, go and sign up for it at London Lounge or let me know if you are interested!
So, this would be the hard sell?
If you don't sign up,don't clog the page,old man.
I have the LL blue shetland. It is a wonderful cloth, but I'm not sure it's worth paying double over "standard" P&H or Lovat Mill tweeds. At least, I don't notice an absolute quantum leap in quality.
The Shetland pants are pretty heavy...I wouldn't wear them above 55 degrees.
For me, it is more about colors and designs, I have a cheviot tweed from Lovat and it is just as good as LL tweeds but I did not see any other tweeds that I liked from their regular offerings.
Lots online ; )
