I'm picking up a suit that I am having made by Mobin, my tailor, here in the ISAF Compound in Kabul today.
It is a 100% wool POW check with a gold overcheck, cloth made in England, bought from British Fabrics on EBay. I had Mobin put a gold colored lining in the jacket. So I in my opinion the lining complements the pattern of the cloth.
It should look very nice.
