The combination of odd jackets and flannel trousers are classic, timeless and perfect for weekends and holidays. At least for the days where shooting suits or heavy tweed are not required.
Today I am wearing a HarrisTweed sports jacket I bought last year - off-the-peg. The fabric is woven in a vintage pattern and in lovely warm colours to celebrate the 100 years of Harris Tweed in 2010.
The fabric is a third lighter than normal for Harris Tweed thus making this an ideal odd jacket for indoor pursuits. I have combined the jacket and trousers with a light brown vintage country waist coat due to the cold weather.
