After making a prototype a while back, I have now made a couple of proper Shetland Tweed jackets, and I thought you might like to see how they have come out.
Notice also how the horizontal orange stripes align from the chest to the sleeve.
This took a bit of work to design the pattern, and some understanding on how to make it work. The finished result is superbly screen-accurate.
I also found a great supplier for the correct coloured leather elbow patches, all of which have to be meticulously hand-sewn in place.
W Bill Shetland Tweed, I am authorised to use their label inside the jacket, which I have proudly put on show, with my own label subtly inside the pocket.

Season Six Tweed jacket –

Well, unfortunately last week I decided that booze took precedence over fashion, but now that I've determined whether I like Martinis or Manhattans better (it's Manhattans) I'll have to start saving up for this.ReplyDelete
I bought one of these off Steve. It is of a very high quality and the look and feel of it is spectacular. Don't bother waiting for the Abbyshot one, get Steves, well worth the extra cost. From having the jacket I can't see any difference from the screen one , plus it's made from the same tweed.ReplyDelete
Steve will go the extra mile when creating these masterpieces.
The jacket is wonderful. Steve, this is fantastic work.ReplyDelete
