How can I found the weight of the tweed of my jacket? Does the code on the label help?
no, you'd just have to know
That is a difficulty with RTW tweed coats, you don't know the weight. All you can do is pick it up, put it on and mentally compare it to other coats you have found either comfortable or too warm (or in some climates, not warm enough!) and judge for yourself. At least with MTM and bespoke, you can specify the weight.
Cross post from Ercoles thread, barleycorn tweed:
Is that the LL Barleycorn tweed? Looks great! That's probably how I'll do mine up, but not 100% yet.
One suggestion: the patch pockets seem a bit high. I wonder if the bottoms can be lowered a bit. Perhaps even the entire pockets shifted down a bit. Just me and it'll turn out great regardless.
I'm checking on the mill, but this was made for Frank and Ercoles. I'll snap a close up of it when I have it in my possession.
On the patch pocket, I like the height, but was back and forth on having the bottoms lowered a bit, especially since I asked for a extra 1/4 inch on the length. I'm very indecisive on patch pocket placement, I find it unnerving haha. It looked and felt right in person, but I go back and forth as I look at the picture.
It's a Molloy donegal that's often out-of-stock - Frank placed a special 12m order to get them to run it again.
Well there you go, thank you ET

Good stuff, tchoy.
What's the second one? Like the Agnelli but blue and white?
Thanks! It's an Agnelli but in flannel while the one underneath is a tweed.
That's a lot of tweed for someone who lives in Australia, tchoy. Have you made any of them up yet?
I really, really like that gunclub.
I mean, I really like all of them, but that gunclub is pretty awesome.
Love the last one.
