According to Gentleman's Gazette, VBC markets its flannel as "Agnelli flannel." Here's the exact stuff he used to buy:

Agnelli was a great fan of flannel, especially grey flannel. He had all of his suits tailored at A. Caraceni in Milan, but the flannels he used were woven by Vitale Barberis Canonico in Italy. Although he owned various shades of grey, his favorite was definitely the one in the picture. It became so popular that Vitale Barberis Canonico produces it to this day. Although it is a solid fabric, it has many shades of grey with a mottled look that provides the fabric with a sophisticated depth. Overall, every man should own at least one grey flannel suit because it is perfectly suitable for business and casual occasions. On top of that, grey flannel trousers pair with most sport coats and work especially well with blazers.

Just think. When Noodles gets Murl's suit, he can start wearing some more navy ties. Just...better navy ties this time...

Just put this in tweed appreciation

Some jackets from my tweed collection. Corneliani for Polo, Partenopea and Zegna

Green barley is probably my fave. Can't find a 100% wool fabric like that ANYWHERE in any color.

The only fit pic I saw from JRD was when he asked about the fit of his trousers.

He promised to participate in the green jacket challenge and he never did. frown.gif

I think what put the final nail in the coffin was when I was trying to sneak out the suit, the one that I sold this week. She told me not to sell it for sentimental reasons but I was going to do it anyways. So it was like I lied and broke the 'covenant' that I made with her. She also said that I get too materialistic when I become too active in SF. Like buy this tie and this suit and them shoes. She thinks I have plenty of ties, shoes, shirts, and suits. I think it stems from the fact that her dad was very frugal. At any rate, I should have had a conversation about selling the final mistake from the past instead of just sneaking it out. I even got caught red handed as I was trying to sneak it out. LOL facepalm.gif

I am catching up with some posts but want to interject quickly and say that I broke up with my g/f in college in large part b/c I was on SF too often and shopping a lot (0). And the fact that I wasn't paying attention, browsing SF very often...

So, I'd be very careful Mr. Noodles and not take things too lightheartedly. Sounds like she needs some TLC ASAP...

Your story sounds like my past situation, and I will tell you first hand that it is a real problem. More so because it seems like you're really getting the hang of things and it is very easy at this point for you to get caught up with your new found sartorial lifestyle.

Noodles, don't sell the Galaxy. You won't get much for it anyways. (That should be the main criterion, right?)

Keep it for sentimentality. It's no Formosa, but it's not awful.

Also, there's no reason to be browsing SF if you're on a date with your wife. Bad manners in general to be on your phone.

Nice stuff, @jrd617! Wonderfully fuzzy. Are you going to make suits or just jackets with the 17 oz. cloths? I just got some 14 oz. trousers and can't imagine going heavier than that.

Not sure on the weights. Either 14 or 17 oz woolen

I'm thinking about a mid-grey suit. Also a navy jacket.
