    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.

    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?

    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'.

    Lovely tweed. Jacket or suit. Horses for courses. YMMV

    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:

    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...

    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.
