norfolk? half belt? crazy english lining? storm collar? action back?
Two button, yes and yes. 4 button cuffs. Par for the course on my tweedish stuff.
Was kind of a spur of the moment call. I just has planned on checking out some tissue, but fuck it.
Please post pic of the horse and hounds as well.
I’ve owned a lot of tweed jackets over the years, of varying weights and densities. I think I’ve come to understand some of the different characteristics- such as Donegal versus Harris. But I’ve never really seen a tweed primer on the different tweed houses and their pros/cons. Does such a thing exist or can one of you outline it here?
Despite my hatered for the author, this is not a bad introduction for the beginner:
I see your hatred for the author and I raise you a photograph of the supercilious owner of The London Lounge embedded in the text.
Nice. Loud, but nice
That Blue P&H Donegal is beautiful, I've been meaning to do it for years. Not sure it would work as just a jacket though, only as a suit, which has put me off 'pulling-the-trigger'.
If you hang around here enough you will find loud is my raison d'etre.
Loud tweed is one of life’s great pleasures, imho
Lovely tweed. Jacket or suit. Horses for courses. YMMV
Now that is not loud, innit?
It may be shit irl, but S&M’s untweed looks hot here:
Those are verrinice. I miss tweed
I have a faux-tweed (light cashmere-silk) SC like that one. Very flexible.
That gun and then Donegal is nice, though I still like the light Moon untweed I posted a few weeks back - at least for my climate. Here is one of their MtM Harris jackets:
The tissu looks beautiful, but that is one bumfreezer of a coat!
Gun check untweed in the wild (aka: I’m a Little Tea Pot):
Alright, I had enough. You just teased me to kop a vintage Harris tweed jacket off the Bay. Has many chances to fit like crap so not sure I will keep it (rtw, not respoke, I'm not a big timer like you guys), but who knows...
Said was often seen wearing Tweed.
Naturally. And a Rolex Day-Date. Though this is certainly my favorite coat of his. I love how he tones it down here with the roll neck (or with a V-neck jumper as above), though I must admit that the PS is too British/toffee for my taste.
