The Saddle Couro Cromo looks perfect. I wasn't part of the shell pre-order, so I'll be excited when these become available.Mike -- any comment on the timing of the new sport trainer (i.e., not the tennis trainer)? Thanks.
For a good winter shirt fabric (casual), I'd recommend this flannel -- http://luxire.com/products/dark-navy-woollen-oxford. Theresa had recommended it about a month back and I just received it. Nice thickness and softness. This is the second flannel I've received, and now that I have my fit down, I'm about to order a couple more flannels.
Me.I'm likely going to go in for the brown grain, but I'd do suede in a heartbeat. These seem 100% perfect, although I'd change the "light brown" to "medium brown" for the welt/edge specifications -- http://www.styleforum.net/t/381983/the-allen-edmonds-mto-thread/390#post_7034286.
Theresa -- can you recommend a few medium to heavyweight flannel shirt fabrics (from either/both your new and existing fabrics)? I want a fabric that's both fairly substantial and soft, but it seems a bit difficult to differentiate your various flannel shirt fabrics.
