    I had some good experiences with suits from Empire Outlet. Got two tweed suits from them. With some minor tailoring I was very happy.

    But what about some sort of affordable version…? ;-)

His overcoat is a herringbone tweed. In the movie poster he's wearing a tweed jacket (posted above by Evanparker) but there is a full length view available and it is not a suit - it's a sportcoat with tweed trousers of a different color. The sport coat is a green but the trousers are a brown so it's not a suit.

    The only tweed (or tweed like - they have some cotton in the fabric mix whereas tweed is generally 100% wool - but they look like tweed) suits I know of from a wheelhouse Dappered source are J Crew's Moon Mills herringbone tweed. They used to make just the sport coat but this year (or maybe last) added matching trousers so you can make them into a suit. They're available in a mid-grey herringbone and a navy herringbone but sizes are very scattered. Must have been popular this year. S&M may have something similar - I have not explored their line of suits as I am pretty well set up at present.

    If you want to go the sport coat trouser route, Brooks Brothers usually has a Harris Tweed jacket in their lineup every fall/winter. Or there's always Ebay and other vintage clothing purveyors...Harris Tweed wears like iron so there are a lot of vintage jackets at very reasonable prices, though it's tough to be sure you're getting the tailoring right (e.g. you may want something more fitted but wind up with something full cut) since you can't try it before you buy.
    Luxire has a whole slew of tweeds available MTM right now. Pricing is about on par with J Crew, and lower than most decent Brooks Brothers offerings. Tons of available colorways/patterns as well.

    I'm holding out to splurge a tad with MAB but that's not really in the Dappered realm. You definitely get exactly what you want that route though.

    That. Tweed. Suit. I want it. Any ideas?

    Chris Evans's sweater has gotten a lot of play, rightfully so, but Craig's suit should have gotten some too.

    or do you mean this overcoat

    It's funny. Under the lighting and palette of the film, the suit seemed more blue-gray than the green seen in that still. Either way…

    Oh, that overcoat was lovely as well.

    It's....proooooobably a tiny bit outside the Dappered wheelhouse of "affordable style".
