^ It's F/W, although I think it can push through "shoulder season" a bit. It's 11/12 oz wool/cashmere. I don't know about the green/blue block stripe. Have to think on that. I chose the block stripe above because I thought the beige stripe was just light enough to contrast with the brown/grey of the jacket, but not too much, so it would blend while the burgundy provided the real contrast. I think a deeper burgundy would work well with the jacket. Still not sure of the...
 Find someone who does embroidery and have them stitch it up decoratively, including adding your initials or something interesting?  ETA: I liked La Spalla when I tried it on (nice lapels and shoulder, decent looking construction), though I think I would have wanted to change the trousers significantly. Also, I found that L rather than R was an appropriate length. I'm generally an R.
At @TweedyProf's request, I'm X-posting this from the NMWA thread where the discussion started.

I continue to think that large-scale medallions work. But I don't have...
@justinkapur  @Caustic Man @Patrick R  Thanks, gents! Very kind of you.   Patrick, post more photos of Chris's work! I have no doubt that you looked as good as I do, probably better.

 I've only seen photos of some of the swatches. It looks like a really interesting book.
^ What emptym just said. I'd be in.
