I really love the Harris Tweed more than almost anything else when it comes to clothing. Was thinking about having this made up for a coat. Would go good with dark grey and brown trousers and work with various turtlenecks.
Tempted to do an olive herringbone, but what would it go with? Grey trousers obviously, but that is about it. Not many turtleneck colours would work either.
Grey herringbone would be limited too wouldn't it?
They are both beautiful! The top one has that hint of wine that you could play with. The bottom one looks a lot like the green herringbone I used for a hacking jacket about ten pages back, in this thread.
I love olive tweeds - best with browns but can also work with navy and charcoal trousers. Lovely with a cream turtleneck.
I think of tweeds as being ‘country’ and this earthy tones, but Brookes Brothers have been doing grey herringbone jackets for many years. Its big advantage is that no one will mistake it for an orphaned suit jacket.
I used to own a green houndstooth harris tweed. Great coat. Nice with some turtlenecks, but hard to pair with many different coloured ones, and this is the issue. Green turtlenecks don't work, neither would red,,orange, etc (my main winter thick skivvies).
There is also this tweed. Looks great, but probably less versatile. Could pair this with various trousers, but limited in the turtleneck colours l could pair with it. What do you think?
Will probably end up getting a green herringbone eventually.
