This cloth is a little too extroverted for my preference, but get a look at the pattern matching!



Heavy weight Loden cloth overcoat -





Single breasted in herringbone cashmere -



Very nice tweed -

First jacket is a little "Herb Tarlek" for me - I think some people could pull it off (maybe someone smaller, so the pattern doesn't present so "bigly"?).

Loden overcoat is a no-brainer; very nice.

The last jacket I really like. I'm less partial to the tie in its specifics, but the color is lovely (and works with the jacket).

True art. Delightful, thanks for putting these up.
You're welcome! Glad you enjoyed them.

They have a fondness for some neckwear pairings that I find rather odd. A little off. Shiny silk satin ties and tweeds aren't something I'd enjoy.

It does help if you live where it gets cold enough to justify an overcoat. Not in the PNW, at least not this year.:(

Flanders, What's that on his neck?
Looks like a scarf, AKA, muffler. It's tied in a less common form. Known by various terms, it's depicted below and there described as a reverse drape tuck. Being personally knot challenged, and essentially lazy, I prefer to simply drape one about my neck under my coat and fold one end over the other to fall down the front. I also like the way it looks.

My favorite tie is the reverse drape and then I keep it in my coat to keep me warm from the cold.

The pattern matching is fantastic. I'm not sure that it will be my next piece but a bespoke overcoat is in the near future.

Some really nice coats.
Loden keeps the wind out. Some years ago a tree fell on the house. Never cared for wind after that.
The first coat could be a challenge to wear. It is a beauty.
The last one is so dark, but could easily be worn a lot of places.
