MTO? or off the rack?
I love forest green tweeds. Donegal or herringbone makes no difference to me. Put them over almost any trouser and they look great. I've got one on my want list for next fall.
posted these in the unfunded thread but for you tweedbois, H&S sherry tweeds, some of these patterns (2nd pic) I really love and will be ordering a few:
^ I want one of each. WOW
very nice... unfortunately cant find my size 36r...
I just had this jacket made for me at Lee Baron in Hong Kong using cloth I bought direct from the mill at Trefriw, Wales:
Yeah my green jacket is my favourite by far at the moment
Just curious, but where do you guys get these fine display models to show off your jackets? Are they on ebay? Do you hunt down men's stores about to close? I'd like one.

Looks awesome! Is that specific fabric on their site? It didn't look like it was. I may request some swatches.
Very nice! I'm not sure whether you look like the DA all defendants fear or the accountant no one wants looking into their cooked books but it is impressive.
I don't think they show that cloth on their site. In fact, they only seem to show a very small selection of what they carry. I'm sure they could post you a swatch. I paid the same as the other tweeds on their site, £40/metre. It's worth noting that all their tweed is a very heavy gauge, certainly the heaviest I have out of three tweed jackets I own.
It's just a small family-run business with I'd guess less than half a dozen employees. I've visited there a few times as it's close to where my wife's family live. I'm sure they'd be very amused to know that their cloth has found its way onto SF, via Belgium and Hong Kong
Here's a close-up I just took, in case you want to email them about availability. There's a blue thread in there, which is why I chose a blue lining:
