I Can't Give It To You Without Being Sure.... That You Spend It Wisely.... On Beauty And Culture

Lawrence: I can't give it to you without being sure... ...that you spend it wisely, on beauty and culture.
Freddy: I've got culture coming out of my ass.
Lawrence: Spending money is a responsibility.
Freddy: All right, how am I supposed to spend my money?
Lawrence: Now, all these wines are very old.
I bought them to make sure they were cared for properly.
Freddy: You got a lot of wine to drink.
Lawrence: They're too valuable to drink.
Freddy: So you sell them?
Lawrence: Never, they mean too much to me.

The passage above, between the characters Lawrence Jameson and Freddy Benson in 'Dirty Rotten Scoundrels' is how I feel about my jacket collection. This new jacket was inspired by my love for Count Von Trapp's outfits in 'The Sound Of Music'. The jacket is very 'high on a hill was a lonely goatherd'.... The wool is a Harris Tweed from Holland And Sherry - one of the few remaining things I was able to keep from a failed engagement that ended a number of months back. 

I went to work on this jacket keeping you readers in mind. The hope was to bring back the mandarin collar and make a contrast in suede which was indicative of autumn, falling leaves and muted colours. So here it is, I feel I ought to give it a name, but let it be what it is - a Harris Tweed jacket. PS: All credit to the Italians. Without them this would not have been possible (Thank you Nick / Frank / Vito!)
