It should come as no surprise that the herringbone pattern is by far the most common tweed. Easy for the weaver and easy for the wearer, herringbone provides a bit of pattern but not so much that a jacket is too memorable. That makes it ideal for the first odd jacket in a winter wardrobe, one that may be worn with some frequency.
There are herringbone worsteds of course, but the thing I like about it in tweed is the woolen loft that gives the good stuff some extra depth. And the good stuff is available in several weights, from the original Harris that is only useful outdoors in winter to a more practical 14 ounce/420 gram weight for heated rooms (any lighter and it is likely that the stuff you have is not a tweed).
In the photo, an unmemorable (is that a word?) gray herringbone jacket made from W. Bill's Shetland is worn with one of the first of my new unlined Neapolitan neckties.
