    I've just bought an olive green tweed jacket and wanted ideas on what to wear with it. Not too formal but for nights down the pub etc. I was thinking a checked shirt and plain wool tie? Any help much appreciated, including photo ideas!

    Cords or moleskin trousers. It's all about texture. Avoid worsted at all cost.

    It depends on colour and texture of the tweed. If it's brownish I'd go with white/cream chinos of the like, brown/tan brogues and a shirt with light blue in it, might be large line checks or solid colour. I wouldn't wear a tie if it's a jacket only, maybe a suit, but I would go with a losely folded pocket square.

    GrassSnake, depends on the weight of the fabric. Heavyweights go better with heavy, casual trousers, lightweights with dressier ones.
