    I was trying to go for William powell (WP) tweed, but they were out of what I wanted, and ended up with Bob Parratt tweed for my wedding. It's solid stuff, but cheap enough to a)order a pair of breeks to go with it and b)drop it into somewhere to be altered to fit nicely. With the right adjustments I think it looked pretty smart. WP is probably preferable but a little more expensive, although both are better value than you'll find elsewhere.

    If you aren't bored of wedding chat you can look at the photos here to see how it looks in real life. I'm the one with the big ears and no hair. Note I got away with 'action back' on the jacket!http://larkrisepictures.com/images/weddings-2/

    And Tom - congratulations, make the msot of the day, it goes very very quickly!

    Hi Will,

    Lovely pics mate, i will have a look at both.

    Tell me about it, i am normally very laid back, but i've been told in no uncertain terms
    "i have only the suits to sort, get it done!!"

    Thanks for the response.
