Fall crombie in Tweed pt. 1

You can never go wrong with a full suit, but why not mix it up with separates.  Or even with a crombie coat paired with odd trousers, for a smart look that has more personality than a full suit.  The Thick as Thieves crombie is meant to be worn over a shirt, rather than over a suit.  So it replaces your suit jacket as one's outerwear.  This coat is made with a lightweight suiting tweed (called Tweed 5 in the fabric section), it is not a heavy cloth, but heavier than most of our suiting options.  It is a midweight fabric, approx 12-13oz and is perfect for fall temps.  This cloth is a complex plaid pattern that is bold yet seen from a short distance begins to appear less patterned.  It is a cool grey palette with a subtle orange overcheck running throughout.  The fabric is pattern matched wherever possible as shown in closeup pics.  It is paired with a rust brown tweed trouser.  The coat is a 4 button closure with hidden front fly.  Angled pockets with ticket pocket, 2 buttons on sleeve, and a higher button stance with velvet half collar.

New grey windowcheck tweed jacket

Here are some closeups of one of the new tweeds still available.  The base color is a med grey with tan windowcheck.  This jacket has topstiched lapels and patch pockets which are also topstitched.  The fabric is not a super heavy tweed, but is easily wearable well into late spring.  The fabric has a soft finish to it and is definitely the best tweed we've had to offer to date.

Solid Color Tweed

New tweeds for Fall/Winter 2013 after some delay have finally arrived.

-Burgundy.  Very nice burgundy/black mix producing a nice rich wine color.  Fantastic color for a sport jacket for those who want something different with panache. 

-Blue Grey.  Birdseye pattern tweed in a color similar to petrol blue.  It's grey, but with a very distinct blue caste to it.  Great color that is not your typical grey (nor blue)

-Light Warm Grey.  Another good option for separates, this warm grey (as opposed to a cool grey which is bluer) in a lighter shade will make a great jacket or trouser.

-Dk Grey.  This color is very unique and hard to properly capture,  The overall effect is a dark grey, but it is made from a mix of grey, greens and even some kind of purplish burgundy, without any of those colors being clearly evident.  Very complex mix of colors to produce a dark grey, but with a slight green tint to it. 

As with most of our fabrics, these are not super heavy tweeds.  About a 14oz weight and very wearable 3 seasons of the year.

Houndstooth Tweed

From the same series as the houndstooth tweeds posted below in "Part 2", these 3 are all earthtone cloths in a houndstooth pattern with an overcheck type of pattern on top.  Not a true overcheck but the interplay of color between the tooth pattern gives it that effect.   Definitely recommended for separates rather than a full suit unless you have some moxie!
