    Since the weather is changing, I was feeling sad about tweed.

    Instead to focus on the negative, I thought positive, and made this solution.

    Now I can wear x2 the tweed, even in spring time.

    The wind can come in here, for coolness.

    Very Ralph Lauren. But I must question the tie and untucked shirt/blue jeans combo.

    Dapper,

    anytime, you can wear the Tweed, that is Trad. The vent I made, allows for comfort in spring.

    Doc,

    I only wore the jeans and this for this modeling, but before I took a nap in it,so the shirt came untucked.

    From the house, I wouldn't go.

    Hahahaha

    But on a more serious note: I hope there was something seriously wrong with that beautiful coat for you to ruin it like that.

    Maybe Vaclav is a tailor - it isn't so hard to rip out and put back a seam.

    Cool Public Enemy poster.

    Trads in spring swap tweed for seersucker, grosgrain, and chino. You can still be trad without the tweed. Let it go man...

    It looks as if the "vent" cuts diagonally across the seam at the top.

    I kind of like the first photo, but given that it resulted from the butchery in the second photo, I weep inwardly.

    Thanks for all the support. I am not a tailor, but I hope still, Ralph is calling soon.

    Mike C., how did you know, that was PE?

    Yo, perhaps some place, they could cut a better tie from here?

    I have a nice skinny vintage tie in almost exactly that fabric/pattern. I love it.

    Vaclav, if you love trad and also listen to hip-hop, I think we may be soulmates.

    Yeah, to make room for the "tie" that got cut out of it.
