^ For what season? I would go with a traditional worsted at 13oz before you get a fresco, which is a very specific type of suit. If you're dead set on a fresco, go for 511 or 512, at least the mid-weight can be worn in fall, spring, and even summer when its not too humid. For a good 13oz worsted, check out lessers 13oz book and smiths botany.
Minnis has great flannel collection, and you can get it cheaper, should also look at harrisons, but not as good as the fox/minnis. If you're going bespoke, skimping out on cloth over a couple of dollars isn't worth the savings, if I were you I'd shell out the extra couple hundred bucks for the better cloth.
I have the swatch for 9437 on my desk, very nice shade. I'm thinking about 9438, but if I can find something with a better finish, i would go with it.
Thanks, I've been looking for a 14-15oz mid-grey twill, hard to find actually. I've been trying to get some samples of smiths steadfast, we'll see what happens.
Has anyone made up dugdale's town classics recently and can comment on how it turned out?
Aravenel, i have 516 as a blazer, it would look great as a suit as well. 579 is the old 516 navy in the original fresco book, also a great color, ever so slightly different than the current 516. I would also check out the navy finmeresco, also a great shade for a suit. The 520 is definitely a suit color, but it is more blue than navy, and personally think the older shade was nicer, as it is slightly different in the Fresco II book. I would also check out smiths...

^ are those bordeaux calf?
i have a 24oz gamekeeper tweed from johnstons, it is insanely warm and meant for a nyc winter. 18oz should be fine, but remember that you're wearing it under a heavy 18-20oz overcoat, even a 13-14oz sport jacket will feel really warm.
Diework, I'm looking forward to the brown fresco in the coming months, should be a good one
