    besides Cords, flannels, (and jeans :D), what other trouser materials are appropriate pairing for a 15oz Harris Tweed SC ? Thanks

    Ed, what are you making? Love the top four patterns (PoW & Hounds tooth) on the right.

    It's a nice enough jacket, but I love that tie.

    I just received 3m of Gala tweed from Lovat Mill (see pic) with plans for a 3/2 SC inspired by Spoo & Butler. Would patch pockets (with a welt breast pocket) be overkill with such a powerful cloth?

    Not to my eye. So stunning a tweed fairly screams a need for pockets as you describe. If you were too shy for the pockets you'd never have ordered that cloth in the first place. Carry on, that man!

    yeah, those four are great but they are all really nice, my pics are awful and you need to see them up close to appreciate the colors/patterns. I'm ordering about 6-8 of them, here are better pics:
