I concur, its either a meat freezer or a sauna
The lesser 16 is a very "dry" old world cloth, its something many people venturing into bespoke gloss over, but eventually come to after they've made a few errors in choosing cloth, you would be lucky to start with it, the navy hopsack will make up a great sport jacket
If you want a navy hopsack go with the one in the lesser 16oz book if it is still in stock, or something from the smiths steadfast book.
I believe the scale is just a bit bigger than the LL GCs, not 100% sure. I originally thought it was a loud pattern once I saw it made up as a jacket, but the dullness of the colors makes for a more muted jacket, I should wear it more to break it in a little, still stiff
Sure, here's a pic of the swatch, I actually get a lot of compliments on it, just prefer gun clubs with a smaller scale. Will take a pic of the jacket for you. [[SPOILER]]
I've got a 24oz thats just too damn heavy, good for a NYC winter, but the pattern scale is a bit too large, mistake on my part
Suits, not jackets, definitely not trousers
Generally I tend to stick with worsteds and flannel for suits, tweed for odd jackets, and flannel for odd trousers. I would say that there are many exceptions such as the navy hopsack as a sport coat, even though it is suiting, or tropical weight worsteds for warmer weather odd trousers. I think color also divides fabrics use, such as greys being used for full suits or odd trousers but not as jackets, and blues being used as jackets or full suits, but not as odd...
Got some hobers I'm willing to part with if anyone is interested, price is negotiable, see sig
GB uses very fine soft threads, beautiful cloth, patterns are so precise and distinct. I prefer the regular stuff, GB is very expensive
