The suit is quite versatile; equally suitable for a walk in the forest and by the river as today, a visit to the local public house for a pint of beer; and pursuits in an about a country house. On a Friday I would also sometimes wear this suit to the office.
The suit is neatly made; hand sewn button holes; the right attention to making the lapels, trouser cuffs cut for high wrist etc. The Cheviot tweed is in a herringbone weave; colour is a varm olive with windowpane checks in burnt orange.
Today I am wearing a double cuffed light blue shirt from Stenström's; a green medallion printed wool tie from Hackett London; a wool/silk pocket square from Drake's London; dark brown unlined leather gloves from Dents; dark brown brogue boots from Tricker's and my beloved flat cap with the suit.
I also brought my Barbour Border jacket as the weather was quite chilly.

|The middle button fastening matches my natural waistline|
|Long single vent. I especially like the waistline and the shoulders|
|The suit looks great with the chunky boots, but also with my leaner brogue shoes. |
Brogue shoes and brown/fawn spats I imagine would look absolutely superiour...

|Details from the trousers; the small waistline pocket; the button side adjusters; the double inward pleats|
|The name of the Gentleman who commisioned the suit is faded away... the suit is presumably from the mid-80s|
|Hand sewn buttonholes|
The persistent reader would notice that this is the suit that I altered in August last year. You are welcome to have a look at the post I made on that occasion: Altering-bespoke-tweed-suit
