Tweed Interior?

Anyone have any thoughts on tweed upholstery on seats? I have a 69 camaro i am building and didn't really want vynil seat coverings. hard on the legs when wearing shorts in the hot summer. i know tweed was popular years ago, but is it completely out of style now?

People are still doing tweed interior and it still looks good. But it really comes down to what you want you have to sit on it and look at it, So the big question is do you like tweed if so i say go for it, A friend of mine just did his Malibu in tweed and it look fine and he really likes it.

Yes, tweed is still available and is still used for car interiors. It's your seat, and you should do it however you want.
