Really?  I checked yesterday and found none.  Perhaps I'll try e-mailing them (I find the organization of their website less than ideal ...).

 

Many thanks.

I have the winter white tennis slacks from here. Essentially cream flannel.

Photo shows them between donegal and camel flannels. Really a gabardine twill, but have a brushed finish like flannel.

Definitely email them. Maybe it got removed from the website, but if you are willing to put up with some delay they can get some fabrics that aren't on the site. If they can get Minnis, the H&W stuff should be doable.

Happen to have a pic of them? That website looks like a caricature. I just couldn't ...

Thanks, SeaJen.  I think those are cotton.

 

Edit:  Oops.  I misread that.  Thanks again.  (Described as 'white', however.)

 

Cheers,

@TM79 and @Academic2
I've edited my original post (was in the process of it anyway).

Definitely wool and cream to my eye.

1. Did Kakeman get some measurements over the weekend? @Jake Beds

 

​2. ​@Claghorn

What do I have to tell them exactly so that the collars are properly situated on my neck?

 

Zegna Shirt (Click to show)

 

 

Washington Shirt (Click to show)

 

If my performance rererereview goes well, I might have some $ for a B&Tailor suit. But I won't know that until the late this week. (I had a very candy conversation with my man the day after the baffling review.). I might have to just get 3 fittings while I am there and have them ship it to me. 

 

3. Are my pants too high??? If so I need some serious alternation on my pants to shorten it.

@archibaldleach where is the full jacket pic? 
post #20905 of 37497
Noodles - Don't have a good one at the moment. I seldom wear the jacket because it's just not that versatile. Was a case of buying something because a fabric swatch looked awesome without really thinking it through. Mostly posted that photo to give a sense of what the cream flannel in question looks like (posting alongside something grey or black / white) brings out the greyish color hues.

i would like to know if this tie is considered appropriate for a baptism ( I'm just a guest). I would be wearing a navy suit, a blue suit and this. Maybe too much blue.

Baptism etiquette? This is something new.

Definitely to many suits.

If you're going to wear a navy suit and a light blue shirt, which I assume you meant, then I'd choose another tie.

Nah - it's just classic SF over-thinking at work again.

As for the tie, I do not like it. It looks too bright and it's also just too much blue regardless. I'd rather a deep green or a brown tie. Something like that.

Could also try a black necktie
