It's definitely bolder than a basic navy suit, but I think it's quite wearable. Makes for a brilliant odd sportcoat too. This will make up more or less like this:

Thanks for all those opinions guys! "Clown costume" was probably overkill but I had images of a Suit Supply ad in my mind. Sounds like Onyx is probably too dark for what I want. @Epaulet, are we done on fabrics? I'm hoping to find some sort of mid-to-slightly dark grey to use as a fairly traditional business suit, among other uses. The "pure cashmere charcoal flannel" seems like the right color, but not the right material.

I ordered the charcoal pique for precisely that use.

Also, what about the oxford grey flannela?

I've never owned a flannel suit and not seeing the fabric in person has me nervous. Plus I live in Virginia and just think flannel is too warm for me.

They are awesome. I live in California and have two flannel suits. You'll be just fine in VA.

VA gets a little chilly, you should be fine. If I recall correctly, flannella is a little thinner than flannel. There were Walts a season or three ago that were flannella and were presented as a Fall/Spring weight of flannel.

Ebony & Electric is pretty hot looking.  

 

@tricky do you wear a 38 or 40 in Southwick?  I'm guessing a 40

 

 

Wish I had tried on a Southwick before...

I wear a 38R in Southwick by Epaulet.

I have two EFF coats in 39 too. But I think 38 is best on me.

Sometimes I need a bit of length let out in the sleeves or to have the back/sides slightly brought in but 38R OTR is pretty spot on.

I find windowpane swatches can be scary sometimes b/c they play up the contrast, but I think it would be far more subtle if you weren't looking at a zoomed in view - very different than the susu craziness. @Epaulet is the windowpane a true white thread or a lighter blue shade? 

 

If you don't think it's for you though, obviously don't let anyone influence you otherwise

 

I think the oxford grey flannela would be a really good fit too - not in the summer, but I bet it would be a go-to for 6mo out of the yr. Maybe even the bluecast grey weathered pique?

Yesterday's eff reda walts and eff shirt
post #50233 of 57695


Loden field coat and ghost tennis trainers. On my way to see my fiancé in New Orleans. I only packed these sneakers for 5 days and one of 2 jackets. Love epaulet!
post #50234 of 57695

Has anyone washed their moleskin field jacket yet? Wondering how it reacted to water (any fading?). I stood next to an outdoor wood-burning stove the other night at a restaurant for a few hours and my coat smells like a campfire, so probably time for a wash. Cold/gentle cycle and hang dry, of course, but wondering how others' have reacted to the same treatment.

 

Also am jonesing for the lightweight fabrics over this a-way.
