Once again you are killing it. That suit looks comfy. Now that I have lost quite a bit of weight I am considering a double breasted chailk stripe suit. I think I owe myself a tweed suit, first, however.
Thank you. I would like to have a tweed suit done up as well. Who are you considering having make it? Andover shop has some very nice bolts of tweed cloth but I'm not sure who is doing their MTM now that Southwick is gone. I assume Hickey Freeman will do it but unsure how closely they are able to replicate Southwick's Douglas pattern.

Sadly I don’t have the pocket change to have one made up for me. It’ll have to be off the peg. Fortunately I have a good tailor. Brook Taverner has a tweed suit I really like.

I trekked the office today, a good day to break out the tweed given the temperatures. The trousers were a recent eBay find, and they are tapered fairly aggressively. I am not 100% sure if the fit flatters me or not. But they are nice (and warm).
