Holland & Sherry Bunch HS579 16oz.
Not a lot of patterns in that book but some great colors; especially high shades. I have not compared it to the other mills mentioned, but I have been very happy with this suit.

I am not sure why I care enough to correct anyone; but the second flower is definitely a white orchid.
I do not, however, think it necessarily works with this outfit. Maybe it would if you used a smaller bloom or paired it with a more formal look. Orchids are nice to use because the floors are hardy...
It is a nit that has been picked several times before. Both voxsartoria and mafoofan have suffered the indignity. I am surprised you do not remember. Mr. sartoria's picking seems to be squirreled but Mr. fan's remains: http://www.styleforum.net/showpost.p...&postcount=121

No problem at all. That is quite fair. I appreciate what you are doing with the contests and wish I was able to participate more fully.

It seemed serendipitous as the one picture already included the daffodils.

With the snow falling and a fit battle in progress, I figure it is about time to finally post the pictures I intended to use for the Pitti Challenge. My Blue Challenge look is actually fairly subdued for me. The following look reflects more what I wear on a daily basis and is an outfit I would have worn if I had attended the Pitto Uomo show like originally planned.
So without further ado, I'll steal some fabric from Neofinitia and stand in front of a Danish flag (actually...

I prefer the shirt, tie and PS combo of Claymore.
