Or camels' hair. Top notch whatever which way. Look at that shoulder. And elephant lapels. Light buttons give a suit coat, if that's what this is, versatility, helping it when it goes off on its own.

Edit add: meant to post the below as a "Sunday Bonus" along with this guy ⇧, but left it out, so here it is. There's just a lot of Tweed in those old Basil Rathbone "Sherlock Holmes" movies. Heck, even Holmes' hat looks like it might be Tweed.

Continuing with our periodic look at Tweed in the comic strips of the '30s and '40s, here's one from "Sparky Watts." Looks to me like a rough hewn Tweed half-belted back sport coat.

I couldn't find a close match, but this has an echo of Sparky's sport coat: View attachment 48941
I love love love this one. Is that a herringbone? I tried zooming in but can't quite make it out. An awesome jacket in any event. I have a grey/taupe herringbone with center vent that comes off as this shade. I wish it had an action back like this. I even like the elbow patches. I think they add a lot of character to tweed.

I think it's just a twill pattern, but let's use the AAAC @Matt S Bat Signal to get the definitive answer:

Oh, I and I think the patches work really well on it too.

And in comic strip land, our man Sparky Watts seems to have switched out his rough-hewn and flecked Tweed sport coat for a solid sport coat and some Donegal trousers (maybe).
