Your post got me to check and you are correct:I would like to see a reference establishing that the Donegal is a 'legal' definition. I never have. Either way, that is a beautiful coat.
So I went from wanting a blue tweed coat, to a traditional black/white herringbone, and now this giant PoW check coat.
I think so much of what we see here and in other pics - sweaters tied around waists, collars popped, extensive layering, unbuttoned OCBD collars, sweatpants with sport coats, etc. - is "fashion" trying to do something different because that's what "fashion" does.Good looking coat and jacket, both of them. However, what's with the sweater, tied around his butt? Not sure I'd want to wear that sweater in the normal way after it's been used as a fart filter.
Very exiting. Looking forward to seeing this develop.I got my tweed fabric finally. 4m is a lot more than I expected. I had to unravel it all and take a picture. I couldn't get the entire length in!
The hand feel is what you'd expect for tweed: very hairy and scratchy, spongey and stretchy, but also seriously THICK. I'd put this at 24oz for weight I'd say. I don't know how conversions work, but it was listed at 720g.
