    I'd like this thread to be solely dedicated to all things tweed. Suits, jackets, pants - show them here.

    I'll start with a 1950's German sport coat with bi-swing back. This is by far the heaviest fabric in my wardrobe. I call it my Fender jacket as it reminds me of the early Fender Tweed amplifiers and guitar cases... ;)

    Not really from the golden era but trying to take aim: 1970's (pseudo) belted back sport coat from Germany.

    Hey, it's tweed. Use it for rough shooting along the hedgerows. Camo lining is perfect, if a little ironic . . .

    I like nothing better than tweed, looking forward to seeing some amazing items here!

    That's why I started this thread. Not really to show off my own stuff (which is a extremely modest collection) but to see other folk's tweed attire.

    Thanks. Had to sacrifice the cuffs to make them long enough. :(

    Sounds familiar. Oh well, it pains my heart to see them cuffs go but what can you do?

    70s but except for the wide spacing of the buttons and the lining it's fairly classically styled. I rarely wear this one though as I find it too flashy to wear too often (I do have a more subty styled herringbone tweed jacket which I wear quite often though).

    I know I mentioned it when we met in Berlin but I really like this suit. I like the fact that the cut of the jacket is so classic that it almost looks modern.

    That's a fantastic suit. What do you know about the material?

    Donegal tweed, very heavy weight but airy. Very itchy so the trousers are lined to the knee.

    Love it. I have yet to find a nice jacket made from nailhead fabric.
