If from NMWA it's 14oz woolen flannel, lambswool. Wonderful stuff.
No love for the white shirt?
Late-night iPhone shot.
I think there might be one in Rincon Center. I'll check this week.
Wait, what? Triple patch pockets are great because they can be worn without a square - the makeup is inherently more casual, generally in more rustic fabrics, and perfect worn with jeans and chukkas. Once jeans enter into the picture, the hank goes. Agree with @sugarbutch re: bulk in patch pockets. Smaller, lighter is better. Kent Wang & Robert Talbot have some nice ones.
I have more three patch sport coats than those with two. I love barchettas, but prefer having all pockets the same. Either set-in hip pockets with welted breast pocket, or triple patch. It's a definitive but subtle way to skew a jacket casual, as opposed to throat latches, action-backs, belts, elbow patches, etc. Not that I'm opposed to such things.
I hear ya. Doesn't bother me personally. I see big checks and small stripes.
The stripes on the shirt are quite close together; the large checks on the jacket may have elements that echo the stripes in the shirt but is a completely different scale.
The hopsack I have is porous and soft. Comfy, and they hold a crease like flannel - decent but not great. I always have to put them in the press after a couple wears.
Weight could be an issue - my suit is a light 9/10oz. The heavier ones could be better. Maybe PatrickR can confirm.
