Here you go

^^ we just did an oatmealish cloth not long ago...btw...i'd be interested to hear from those who went for full suits in that cloth...how are the trousers holding up?

 

 

I went for the denim blue and gray inglese polos...its my first ever foray into their polos...we'll see how i like them. i would have liked olive as well but it was gone.

I just need to put this out there once: If anyone got the Eidos Fresco suit in size 48 and is planning not to keep it please let me know.

I would preorder this suit in 48 if I had a chance.

Not all shirts are cut the same way and the pattern determines how the sleeve head fits the upper arm - so comparing shoulder measurements if you're comparing shirts patterned very differently can sometimes result is confusion (at best) or panic (at worst). Moreover, you'd be comparing shirting (that has zero give or stretch) with piqué (which has stretch and give). Maybe clementines and oranges then?

We'll have a 42 at the trunk show so you can gauge for yourself.

Ah, thanks. Now I understand!

Yup, that jacket is excellent. Slept on it at the time, which I certainly regret. But, I think of that jacket as the spring/summer version of what I was envisioning, which was a pale oatmeal jacket for fall.

One last check before mine goes back...

I think this question got lost in the fly debate. Is half a size down right for the unlined Irving?

Yes. Half size down pretty much across the board w Heschung.

I love that fabric, but have been eyeing the Cacciopoli summer glenplaid and feel that one works for the same occasions as the swatch you posted. Maybe even more versatile due to the blue over check.

That could be nice. If we get a few more people interested, I can look for suitable fabric options.
