    I have a Dege special order from the older Hunters, but it is like the 604 (slight color shift of the ground) and something like your middle one. I think that is from P&H.

    The one with the electric blue pane is a 3pc suit and I don't wear the jacket on it's own. The Hunters is a true sport coat.

    It does look better with a whiter base like on Mark's coat.

    Same here.

    If you're looking for something that will be pretty wearable without it looking like 'oh, he's wearing that again' I think you're best off with lower contrast / darker green on the right.

    Speaking of greens, do you know any emerald green Donegals?

    Going along with @Cantabrigian 's comment, can anyone recommend an alternative tweed in a similar shade of green with a similar scale windowpane? Preferably no red or orange or electric blue mixed in

    Looking at the swatch on the right (Lovat Teviot)

    http://www.intweed.co.uk/goods-for-...skins/lightweight-lovat-mill-teviot-tweed-986


    Very similar shade to @Betelgeuse's Isaia jacket

    Calcioppoli green donegal is sold out. I have been trying to get that for ages.

    I like those three also. Remember that 24oz is a pretty sizeable investment in warmth and bulk. Given the choice, I'd probably bite on the Kirkton.

    Just picked up the Teviot on the right. Not a bad looking tweed

    I actually think heavier tweed is more useful since it winds up being outerwear most of the time.

    Offices that allow / kinda require a jacket but not a suit are the sorts of places where you just hang your jacket on the back of your chair. (For that matter, nowadays most places that require a suit are also the sorts of places where you just hang your jacket on the back of your chair.)

    The more I look at it, the more I really like that Teviot tweed but 13oz is a little lighter than I'd want for a color that dark / autumn-y.

    It's actually 15 oz, so not that bad is it?

    (15.17 oz, to be precise)

    Hmmm...

    That could be about perfect for London...

    How many meters for a odd jacket? This is single width, right?
