I have some disappointing news on the cashmere scarves. We had been expecting a big shipment all fall, but had to cancel the majority of the order as the quality was just not up to snuff--the weaving at the ends, where the scarf transitioned to fringe, was inconsistent. It wouldn't affect the use at all, but it just didn't measure up in my mind.
I did manage to have a few made, a couple colors in the same glen plaid we had last fall, and a couple in a great twill/melange. Honestly, there are so few that it isn't fair to send out a notice to the mailing list, since I expect them to sell out before most would even get to the email.
So consider this a little advance notice. I'll try to get them up on the site by Wednesday night/Thursday morning.
I apologize for the noob question, but what's the difference between the classic flannel, the VBC flannel, and the VBC super 120? Do they fit the same? Is the VBC lighter material?
No need to apologise. The classic flannel is our standard fabric. It's a nice sturdy one, not too heavy, not too thin, soft but not the softest. It's a very nice fabric and we stock (and sell) a lot of it. I consider both of the VBC fabrics premium fabrics. They are excellent quality, but are considerably more expensive. The super 100s is thick and spongy, soft and has great color. The super 120s is thinner, sleeker, less spongy, and very soft. It's a truly luxurious fabric.

They are all made to Italian sizes; they don't correspond perfectly to US sizes and that is why we list the Italian first.

Will there be more suits in middle and light colors?
You won't be disappointed. I like those an awful lot. There will be no other suits or jackets this fall. We'll have new items in February or March for spring/summer.
