Do call me copy cat or whatever - i am useless to see clothes on hangers, and hate shopping for this reason.
I need a jacket ( for a year now I am on a look out) and saw on on a woman in town. It looks the job, and brand new.
I spent 3 hours now googling "fitted tweed jacket olive/pink lines, neither too horsey, no too formal" gives me no result. I have chacked all online shops I know who would do something like it - Rowlands, country casuals etc
Should i just comfort myself she bought it ages ago and just started to wear now?

Run out of space. I checked Joules' too - no, I do not plan to take up horse riding. Ag-gh-gh-gh!

Someone will come on and tell you where, this topic is amazing for that.

Have you tried John Lewis ?

You need to type olive green tweed jacket into the search box and see wha tiu find. If it's not there try green tweed jacket.

Thank you FairyCake, sounds inspiring! It is the best forum to
ask, is not it? ;-)

This type of thing without the purple?

CeeceeBloomingdale Fri 04-Apr-14 16:51:39

I normally look through google images to try and spot something

NotAgainAndAgain Fri 04-Apr-14 16:52:06

Tried that tak1ngchances, sitiing and doing it millionth time - went though all images google offers, alas
And yes LauryFairy, John Lewis was in my first hour grin

Thanks CeeceeBloomingdal, got the idea. But that is proper horsey-country. The one I saw was this sort of fabrick, but the jacket was for "no I do not have a horse" more sort of casual normal ('scuse me horsey people, I love your sport, but afraid to be that high)

NotAgainAndAgain Fri 04-Apr-14 17:07:31

That what I have been doing CeeceeBloomingdale for the soon fourth hour, but it's not there (heavy edited vocab)
Should I think of some conspiracy?
I would love to have someone like Devil Wears Prada women on my dial list - who know what's in the shops. Now forward thinking - that's why there is no web tool, who would need those magazines then?

I reckon I've found it

[]] Isabel marant

Gabe tweed blazer

If it is that it's bloody lovely. Slightly unstructured and more casual than a horsey one

I am becoming a specialist in tweeds
Horsey sort (Edinburgh Woollen Mill-Joules) would have patches on the sleeves.
Mine was sort of "no horse tweed" if I can say so. Sort of Rowlands-Country Casual but more casual that smart.
But they have not got it. And I can't think any more.
I accept defeat. (gone under duvet with a pack of tissues)

NotAgainAndAgain Fri 04-Apr-14 17:24:59

Oh, FairyCake thanks for listening to my woe. You've got the idea pretty close. But.
Not that one. It's not olive. Not wool. May be i should just go for this one? "cause it is the closest to non-horsey tweed-y

Have you tried jack wills? They do lovely tweed style jackets!

Was it a shooting jacket shape like this:

Campbell Cooper

Or more of hacking jacket:

LightastheBreeze Fri 04-Apr-14 19:36:47

This looks Olive and pinks lines, or was that not quite what you meant

NotAgainAndAgain Tue 08-Apr-14 19:52:42

Oh thank you kind ladies, flu got the better of me and my jacket hunt.
It is lovely Lj8893 indeed, and closest in shape, even breast pocket is there. And there is no pink thin over-check - will you call me stupid for wanting one?
However may be I should start next google shot - with a key word "blazer" (cause I did it only for "jacket", abyss of fashion illiteracy).

NotAgainAndAgain Tue 08-Apr-14 20:06:51

Twinlesteine (great name) not House of Bruar (lovely as it is). The style is very it. Thanks for the website - I found a very close over-check in fabric

Ness ?

NotAgainAndAgain Tue 08-Apr-14 20:25:17

I know LightastheBreeze, "olive and pink" in words may sound funny. And that Boden example - of a funny "olive and pink"
But mine was not that funny. From the fabric point of view the closest pattern was from the houseofbruar colour called LOVATLUPIN (middle) from the page Twinlestein kindly offered, although it is not quite olive and not quite pink.

NotAgainAndAgain Tue 08-Apr-14 20:30:43

And thank you all - with your help I now know some decent shops outside my village grin
