"The cloths look very much like many a Chanel jacket I've seen at weddings over the decades."

Funny you should say that, Henry, here's a Linton Tweeds jacket  that I made last summer for my nephew's outdoor wedding. I could zip it up and be warm *and* smart. I don't know if you can see in the picture but it's got some gold metallic thread in the weave. Just the right amount of glitz for a wedding. And did I say it kept me warm...

[ps: let me know if no picture displays, just working out how to do this]

Very nice. Like a leather jacket style, but tweed.

Hi kate,

I tweaked your post to put the image in the center. Really nice jacket.

Thank you very much, Hutch.

About the photo - I realised also that it shouldn't have been in-line - maybe if I'd put it in a separate paragraph of its own. I'll be making more biker jackets later in the year, in denim,  so I'll  try again at posting photos then!
