The above is a good look if you're fat and wanna look fatter. Vertical lines in plaid don't stay vertical when they follow the curves of a big belly. The vest buttons at the point the jacket probably should. The lapels could be shutters on your cabin and the colors resemble the Thanksgiving mashed recently found in the back of the fridge. The shot is too tight to give true meaning to its complete uglyness. We should have a thread for laughable tweeds.

Because I like bold plaids, but not of bed spread dimensions, below is something that includes taste as well as fit.

This is one lovely jacket. Where can I find one, Peaks? And who made it, pray?

You posted that same pic last Friday. It hasn't changed, pretty standard stuff though guy looks better there than he did in that plaid mess a couple pics up. But he still loves the elephantine lapels.

Fresh pic, my kinda outfit...

Normally I don't favor three piece ensembles that cut you in half. I think the trousers and vest should match, not the coat and vest. That being said, this is one fine assembly. I'd wear it.

Tweed flat cap
I would like to have a cap like this. I suppose it would be called a flat cap even though it's not very flat which is what I like about it since most appear too small, like the ones a poster here regularly wears that look like a slice of pizza on his head. This one though, she has the loft. The fluff. The slouch. And you can carry stuff up in there...

Below, a couple that are okay, just okay, left one too small. Right one passable.

I need this one, on the right...but not for $150.


Head Helmet Font Personal protective equipment Cap


I bought a slouchy one on line last May. Still not enough room up attic. I tried to balloon it up by freeing it from the bill, but the indelible crease line shows. I will figure something out someday.

True, your crease line does detract. I'm not too into "poofy" caps but I know what you mean about some flat caps looking too small on the head. I do have and enjoy the couple of flat caps I have, but 1 has to choose wisely as to what looks apt on one's noggin.

Don't particularly like the following, because of its butchering of a favorite style, but offer it for your consideration...

Dress shirt Neck Sleeve Gesture Grey


The peak lapel is unusual and negates the opportunity to button this sort of jacket high against inclemency. While a flap on a breast pocket can be hacked forward, looks off on a patch pocket. But props to the red headed guy for choosing a tie to match...
