Two button, yes and yes. 4 button cuffs. Par for the course on my tweedish stuff.Makeup? One two or three buttons ? Hacking pockets? Ticket pocket? I need more info.
Despite my hatered for the author, this is not a bad introduction for the beginner: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?
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.Despite my hatered for the author, this is not a bad introduction for the beginner:
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'.
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.^
Said was often seen wearing Tweed.
Leave as is. Gentlemanly thrift. See Prince Charles shoes..
Good call. Bellows pockets on a giacca are a pain in the ass. Had one once and never again.
I agree that it's a bit short - even if you're a bit short, I still think that the jacket would benefit from being a bit longer. As long as the front is cut away at the bottom, it will still look good at the front and will also look sensible at the rear.Here's a forward fitting for a tweed thing I'm having made. Bit snug round the chest but that's being fixed. I'm okay with having great tits anyway. Tissue is Moons.
We'd have to look at a full body picture to judge. If he's short with stumpy legs sure a short jacket and high buttoning point would benefit him. How short is too short depends on the physique.I agree that it's a bit short - even if you're a bit short, I still think that the jacket would benefit from being a bit longer.

I also think that the buttoning point is a bit too high and that it would benefit from being a bit lower.
Then again, I'm not a tailor, so I could be entirely wrong!
There are enough second hand tweeds around to avoid those with repairs. I would definitely put leather patches on.
