I remember the Lesser 9.5/10 having the weaves/patterns I mentioned. Am I wrong?
IME, the 12/13 oz finmeresco is slightly less open weave and wears just a bit warmer than 10 oz fresco.Harrison's has been incredibly helpful in mailing multiple swatches to me.I'll be really interested to see this book. I've been impressed by Frontier. It's a near perfect weight for eight or nine months of the year here in SoCal. But the panama weave means no sharkskins, birdseyes, or herringbones. Looks as though Regency plugs that gap. Also makes me curious if...
I've been having suits made by Chan since 2006. I've been more pleased with the attention to detail and consistency in recent years than when I started using them--with one exception: two years ago, I received a pair of pants with one set of forward pleats and one reversed. That should never have gone out the door. Otherwise, my last few suits, both those ordered on tour and those for which I've been in Hong Kong to have fittings, have been impeccable. As far as attention...
I don't own any black St. Crispin's shoes but my experience is that the leather they use is as good as or better than any. I've owned EG, don't now, and own both G&G and Anthony Cleverly in addition to St. Crispin's and Santoni FAM limited editions. I'd put EG leather quality ahead of G&G but slightly behind St. Crispins and Cleverly.
I find the black brown incredibly versatile. Wearing mine today.
I recall a lengthy debate on this at LL.I wish they would remake the 9.5/10 but it doesn't look like that's happening.
Harrison's remade the 13 oz. and the 8-9 oz. Lessers books a year or so ago, so I don't think there's a shortage of those. Harrison's has said that it's considering remaking the 16 oz book.I have suits in both the P&B Fine Classics and Minnis Classic, and I think they're both very good. They both drape well, don't wrinkle much, hold a crease, and seem hard wearing. They both have nice sharkskins which are more defined and less smooth than the Lessers 13 oz. I like...
For my next order, I continue to vacillate between a 105 with no medalion, a 522b, and a 596. Also can't decide between Cru 607 and 608, though I figure that will be easier when I can see the swatches.
I've never seen that book. I'll have to ask for it. What are the weights like?
Not sure if this is whipcord or cavalry twill. From the H&S Dakota book. I think this is 14 1/2 oz. Was thinking about getting a pair of pants made in this.
