Colour blocking tweed

I really want a fitted tweed jacket but I'm not into the English heritage look, all horsiness and functional. Tweed is such a lovely  tactile and natural fabric, I think it's a shame to consign it to being a stuffy historical material. I want something more vibrant and quirky from my tweed, which is hard to find out there. Proenza-Schouler had amazing neon tweeds for Spring/Summer but I'd like something to bring me into Autumn.

Paul Costelloe and Libertine are two of the few designer houses giving us beautiful bright tweeds for Autumn/Winter 2011. And Paul Costelloe's tweed was sourced in Tipperary!

Libertine A/W 2011. Such juicy colours!

ASOS have some beautifully colourful House of Holland tweed pieces. I want this dress! Colour blocking and tweed in one gorgeous frock.

House of Holland £295 on ASOS
I can't find anything affordable on my usual Ebay, ASOS or highstreet shops so off to do some vintage trawls for quirky 50s and 60s tweed...............
