Sport Coat — Spier and Mackay
OCBD — Drake's
Jeans — Sid Mashburn
Belt and Chukkas — Crockett & Jones
This looks fantastic! A gray tweed jacket with jeans can very easily look a bit old-mannish, but you've completely avoided that here. This is probably one of the most youthful looking executions of that combo I've ever seen, and I can't quite put my finger on why. Probably a combination of fit, posture, choice of footwear and just the right shade of denim. The Neapolitan cut sport coat helps a lot too. Well done!

Is that the Harris tweed jacket S&M ran a few years ago?

Thank you—very kind! Yes, it's the Harris tweed jacket from S&M.

And I hear you re: tweed sometimes looking fuddy-duddy. I bought a herringbone tweed balmacaan last winter and on the few occasions that I wore it, I felt like I should probably be 40+ to properly pull it off, and my wife (enthusiastically) agreed. There was something about it, hard to pinpoint, as you said. Maybe it was a combination of the cut and the colour—beige and black—that made me feel old (read: not wise) beyond my years.

I was able to buy some interesting Paraboot “ugly tyrolean shoes” (even my girlfriend likes them, what surprised me) in Burgundy last week. Mandatory picture of the shoes, one of my outfits in the vineyards (for those of you speaking French, the name of the “Clos” is quite amusing…) and one picturing, well… what you do in Burgundy: drink great wine and eat nice charcuterie and delicious cheese.
