    When they are really small, they might as well not be diamons at all.

    Paul Stuart seems to always have a parquet patterned tweed in their fall/winter collection.

    Only if you rotate them 90 degrees.

    Which gives me an idea for Pitti 2015...

    I do - medium/dark brown flannel from Harrisons. Wanted something neutral to add to multiple grey flannels. I find brown reasonably versatile. If I could find a nice tan flannel I would get that too.

    That would make considerably more sense than what I wrote.

    Can we all now agree that we have spoken enough about diamond patterned cloth for 2014?

    Proof that there are some things that not even AA illustrations can make look good.

    It is a herringbone, but it also looks a lot like parquet to me...

    Could anyone recommend a brown houndstooth cloth like on this jacket? I can't seem to find one without windowpane / overcheck.

    Doesn't necessarily have to be tweed. Faux would be better, I think.
