I never use the keeper, so my back blades move around a little. thought it might add something.

Yeah, I don't use my keeper either. I would think that you would just need to have a matching solid color as the base color in the stripe.

Yeah, but dye lots and such could be an issue or different midnight blue's from different mills. Probably too small a difference to make a difference but you never know.

I'm waiting for David Hober to tell me how truly stupid this idea is.

Mizuchaud,

Style is something personal and this sounds like an interesting personal style choice - so a good idea for you if you like the look.

The solid midnight blue may very well be a slightly different color but this could add to the elegance of your idea.

tdude was kind enough to send me a Hober linen swatch set recently and I'm ready now to pay it forward. Let the bidding begin!

Just kidding. It's free to the first person who provides an address and who promises to pass it along for free within a week or two of receiving it.

Received a nice box of goodies from David.

^ gotta love the handrolled edges. Among those swatches, do I see both a dark chocolate and bitter chocolate grenadine?

The hand rolled edges are beautifully done and is a credit to David and his team.

You have a sharp eye two of the swatches are indeed dark chocolate and bitter chocolate, I think the bitter chocolate will be one of the next commissions.

Macclesfield Madder swatch set has just been claimed, but the linen set is still available. PM me and it's yours!

Just received a couple Macclesfields... Beautiful as always.

I also got a mini-set of Burnt Orange swatches... The twill, the black-warp cashmere, and the diamond weave. Because all the cool kids are doing it, I'll send these to any interested parties, too.
