    Have a look, also, at the Islay offerings. They make the Huntsman house tweeds, but I assume they have similar stuff in their regular offerings. On the other hand, I don't recall that I have never seen a stand-alone Islay book, but I assume they are out there. Or maybe they just supply merchants like W.Bill.

    I can't see this turning out anything but great. It's my default for odd jackets.

    W.Bill has some very nice bold tweeds. Cashmeres as well.

    Or Hardy Alsport? (the real deal tweed one, not worsted)

    Also, any interest for a custom run burnt orange WBill linen?

    Either solid or patterned (glenplaid, windowpane, houndstooth etc).
