Anyway, needs must, and I ploughed on to complete two prize jackets back-to-back.
First was a Shetland Tweed, with all the trimmings!
I think I really have the pattern nailed for the jacket, and have mastered the fabric pattern aligning.
Some I had seen off the shelf at haberdashery stores have been very dull and in single colour. They didn’t have any character, but the ones I am using are hand cut and made to order, so are much more characterful.
I did think it was a completely different jacket, but I discovered that everything about it – with the exception of the collar and lapels – was cut exactly the same as the later Shetland Tweed.
I sourced perfect elbow patches from the same place as earlier, and I tracked down just the right leather football buttons (see below).
I wonder if they were used as a nod to Matt Smith, who’s original career path was with a league football team.
Each of the jackets sports the appropriate W Bill label, the Donegal with the additional label specific to their mill.
Do let me know what you think of the jackets.
Wow. The Donegal one looks great, as does the series 6 one. I'm amazed how you always get everything so accurate. The donegal one somehow looks better than the one he wore. Excellent work. Hope you are feeling better!!!!ReplyDelete
I suppose it's somewhat of an optical illusion. The lines on the first jacket give the impression that it's a very differently shaped jacket.
I think I'll always prefer the Shetland Tweed over the original jacket, but they both have their own characteristic charm.
Very brilliant executed!
How much do you charge on average?ReplyDelete
I want one. How much?ReplyDelete
They are both completely brilliant, though, I am partial to the first one. ^.^ I would love to have one of my own, though I know it would be expensive!ReplyDelete
I'm interested in purchasing one of these coats if you still have material left, could you contact me with pricing and details?ReplyDelete
I too would be interested if they are still available.ReplyDelete

Hey Pumpkiny. I was hoping you could help me with something, I'm looking for some Shetland tweed and I've checked W Bill's website but I'm not sure if I can order in the fabric at all. Is there a way I can order some to be delivered to me in Australia? Please, PLEASE reply!ReplyDelete

Thanks a ton! I'll send an email off to you the first moment I get an opportunity. I'll hopefully be talking to you soon! :-)Delete
Hey. How long (width wise and length wise) is the top left pocket on the jacket for the little hem, what about the length of the other two near the waist and the width and height of the flaps on his pockets? Ok, thanks.ReplyDelete
