Stumbled across a great looking red stripe heavyweight flannel in the sale section. They had me "heavyweight flannel" but the swatch looks fantastic!
@Epaulet Can you share the weight on this fabric? Thanks
Beautiful. You should jump on that.
I happily paid full (EFF) price for that flannel. Just buy it dude. It's definitely heavier than other flannels I have but not into shirt-jacket territory IMO.
Lol,+1. I put denim in the dryer all the time, sometimes not on purpose, they stretch back out... They look the exact same as the ones I don't dry.
Dry clean denim and canvas chinos? Crazy talk.
Yup, the long-awaited Lightweight section is up...
Couple of notes from my side:
1. The REDA Cross-Hatch is absolutely stunning. It can be a good sportcoat, but I'd encourage you to buy it as a suit. If anything, you can wear the pieces separately, as it makes a great coat and a phenomenal trouser. The color is grey with a touch of a blue cast, so it will work with navy trousers or very light grey. Great match to denim. The hand is nutzo, and it's a great way to do a solid suit with a standout texture. @Todd V - REDA is a fabric house in Italy, especially famous for their textured fine wools (hopsack, fresco, fine twills). We can do 8 suits in this cloth. I'm not sure how long this will last, but our REDA fabrics are typically the first ones to sell out in Trouser EFF rounds.
2. The Navy Fresco is extremely lightweight - great for a hot climate or a strictly late Spring & Summer suit in places like the Northeast. If you've ever handled the "Balloon" fabric from Ring Jacket, it's very similar.
3. If you've never had a Corduroy suit in your life, you might consider grabbing one. The dark olive color is perfect, and you'll be surprised how much you can wear it. It's cool as separates, but impossibly rad as a 2-piece, especially with something like Innsbruck Indy boots or Jodphur boots.
4. E.Thomas is another small Italian fabric maker. Their Charcoal hopsack is a nice staple, but it has a finer hand and nicer yarn than most. And the Seersucker speaks for itself. Doing the whole Seersucker suit today is a real "look," but it's very sensible to buy both pieces with the intention of wearing them separately. I love a Seersucker jacket with chinos or distressed denim
