How many have Harris Tweed sportcoats??I adore all three of mine:brown,dark brown and blueish-brown
I love a really hairy tweed in the winter. I wear my uncle's which I inherited when he passed away, so it is about 45-years-old now. Dark green with mottled flecks of brown and gold (all very autumnal and rustic!!) and looks great with a pair of green wellingtons and a couple of labradors out in the country, or if you are more pre-WW2, then a good sturdy pair of full length leather officer's field boots).
I do like my tweeds and here is a photo of me in my tweed jacket (I call it my Bertie Wooster, as it is a tad lound with the houndstooth check) at the London Old Fedorian's Dinner last year.
Your tache reminds me of a good sailing friend I had out in Gibraltar, called Ralph. He had a super handlebar moustache with waxed tips, and he carried it off a treat. As you would say, it was his TRADE MARK

I have two of them that I use for foxhunting during the informal season (cubbing), and for other wear as well. Unfortunately, the one I purchased 20 something years ago is now a little tight. It is my favorite, but I am no longer a 40 long--closer to a 42R. The Harris tweed is a good casual jacket that keeps one fairly warm during the early Fall without the need for an overcoat. Plus, they have that "old school" feel to them.
I have three Harris tweed jackets, and a nice tweed overcoat, all
leftover from grad school days. Had intended to wear tweed more,
but since leaving academia for various sundry pursuit, I seem to
have abandoned this classic style.
I'm wearing a nice tweed presently. I got it in Long beach CA not too long ago with a friend, Wild root nows the one I'm talking about. It's a late 30's 3 button notch lapel with 4 patch pockets and a belted back. It is very comfortable and perfect for fall with it's hues of dark camel with a light rust window pane. Made by Hills of Santa Ana, CA. What a great material, I wish I had the trousers to match.
IN-N-OUT Burger, It's DIVINE!
I am not all that hot on Harris Tweed jackets. I have one that was my grandfather's around here somewhere but it will never fit.
I will take that jacket Paddy is wearing though. That is a classic style.
People think they are so rebellious and original, when really they are just banal, boring and dumb.
Hey Harp, I see you are in Chicago. Does your name have anything to do with your being a fan of the blues harmonica as perfected on the South Side back in the fifties and sixties? I'm an old blues harp player/blues DJ myself, and was just wondering if that was your style.
I simply love my harris tweed coat, it's a little itchy, but I can always put in my always overpacked() gladstone bag and the jacket will come out looking like new!
(and yes I do look a bit strange in that pic! )
