    Nice one

    With the extremely rare addition of the matching flat cap, this was an outstanding auction. I can't find the "cool, but ended, eBay stuff" thread. Please merge if needs be.

    I've got one very similar.

    (is that.... I mean... could that be a certain Arab on the run?)

    Perhaps not running but it looks like he could certainly be performing
    some kind of jig. He may not even be an Arab.

    Yes very unusual to have the matching Tweed cap. I pulled out of bidding as I thought it was a little big, but a suit I would have liked a lot though.

    Kindest regards

    That suit works for the bearded fellow wearing it. I wonder if he dresses that way in general? Great look and a wonderful suit / hat combo.

    Ben,

    Where I come from, I don't think it's in any way unusual to wear a tweed suit with a matching cap. Rather common, in my experienceand tweed tailors will usually provide a matching cap as a matter of course. Off the peg tweed establishments will often stock caps in matching tweed.

    There is, of course, the legendary 5 piece suit - jacket, waistcoat, breeches, trousers...and cap.

    Hal may wish to add something from a Welsh perspective...

    I think he meant unusual to find one of this era with its matching cap still with the suit. That's certainly what i meant.

    Ahah! Yes, rereading it I see that now. Thanks, Baron, and sorry Ben. I had just finished a PM conversation with Hal on this very subject and must have still been influenced by that.
