I wore it last week in the day just for fun and it really was. I have two pairs of trousers to go with it (for safety) and I have still had it unworn on the rack for 2 months, if I'm not going to wear it in this heat when am I going to wear it?

Started making collections now in sample sizes. These two Mohair suits (and their linings) have a very Mod/Britpop feel.

Slick looking green, very modern, its never been a color Ive ever considered personally but looks very nice here.  How is the Silk/Mohair combo, is it a super lightweight summer fabric?

Its the same cloth as your purple, I've done one in brown as well, its an interesting brown because its brown/grey. Ill put it up tomorrow I think.

I thought the texture looked familiar, but I don't recall the green most likely because the purple was that awesome. Very cool.

The purple is great i'm working on one right now for a wedding. The green doesn't stand out as much in the book, the swatches can give you an idea and inspire but I think invariably these kinds of cloth look much better than people imagine when made up.

Yeah the purple turned out better than I expected and I had a high expectations in my head. The fabric is awesome, texture and the way it hangs it's really well done.  Mohair creates such a crisp line, really makes a difference. Sometimes I feel like I can imagine these things in my minds eye but usually I find it more difficult and I'm often extremely impressed to see finished suits that I want and I would have totally skipped from the swatch alone.

 

One memorable example would be that green heavyweight tweed, I never would have given that one a second look but the suit is awesome. And I've wanted to order one since I first saw it, although green as I said isn't really my thing so I'd be interested to see the other options too.  But that green would work for me, I'm quite sure.

I was looking through this on Saturday and there is a similar brown with a light blue windowpane swatch that is beautiful. Some other nice pieces stood out, but that one was the highlight for me.
