 It drapes a bit beter than pure cashmere, imo, which, depending on weight & make, can hang like a litle shapelessly, like a blanket. 
 +1 good post. . I'm curious about the Foo quote.  4 or 5 years? No.  Speaking as an MC enthusiast rather than someone for whom tailored clothing is largely a utilitarian pursuit,a moratorium on purchasing would mean I'd miss out on the odd awsm cloth run or other one-off purchasing opportunities. I endorse the slow-it-down sentiment tho.  If I'd been less impulsive I would have fewer expensive mistakes.  Taste and understanding of what works/what I want has matured slowly...
  great suggestions.  I do like the idea of something between a grey and blue, so a air force blue, yes. Maybe no in a DB tho.  Perhaps a DB in a navy Tonik, would be boss.
Advice on a number 10 please guys?   POW 10 oz,                                    Tan HB solid 8 oz Brown solid Slewfoot Fresco,           Navy Fresco solid 10.5 oz Navy fox flannel solid 13 oz,                     Dk Grey Fresco solid 10.5 oz    POW 3B13 oz worsted                        lt Grey Fresco solid 10.5 oz Tan plain weave worsted solid 10 oz
oatmeal, 
  tan + white (in case it's not clear from the appalling photography)
 Sartodi is this a sharkskin?  +  light grey?  (Looking for a real nice lt grey shark suiting)
  That would work with dark grey flannels, sure. A light (color) grey odd in a plaid is fine with dk grey trews imo  I think I (and other more eminent  SF members) have said it elsewhere.
 imo even a HB jacket in jc's shade of grey isn't going to be all that useful.  It would work with none of his grey trews (which would be most of his trew wardrobe if he's anything like me).  And that leaves only those trews he has in those other shades, and then only ones which are either very light or very dark in those shades (to provide contrast) and which share the relative formality that would go with a 2 button 2 flap + besom pocket jacket.  Eliminate the darker...
 blue herringbone, even green imo.  Charcoal isn't all that useful    Seems to fit u nicely.  How often would u wear it tho? Hard to find trews that would work with it.  That fit ^^^ doesn't really work, for instance. Not enough contrast imo Many are the @menswear enthusiasts who have been lured by the Siren song of the grey odd jacket - the one that hangs forlorn and unworn at the back of the closet.
