When I visited, they did not have hopsack in my size. If they did, I would have bought. I want to try in person before springing for an online purchase.

Free returns though. I was surprised the functional sleeves were perfect length for me. Maybe needed shortening just slightly

What is considered an acceptable width of herringbone stripes?

Check out page 1276 of the official SF rule book.  I was confirming that shadow stripe suits are not in good taste and recall coming across the rules on herringbone stripes in the same general vicinity of the rule book.

Humorous, but the general heuristic I have in mind is that narrower spacing creates less visible bands, whereas much wider bands will create a kind of optical effect that is weird. Herringbone is generally liked for the fact that it has texture but resolves as a solid. If the bands are too wide, the contrast may be severe.

Yeah, that is fine (it's the default). I was looking at something with double the spacing and I thought it looked a bit wacky.

I think it's not just the width of the herringbone stripe. It's also the thickness of the pattern. I never cared for self-striped suits, but a subtle herringbone can be nice on a suit or maybe a navy odd jacket. Bolder herringbone patterns can be nice on tweed or other odd jackets.

That would be great for an overcoat. Don't know if I would like it on a SC.

This strikes me as a really strange thing to ask, since there are a million variables that could affect the final outcome. Unless you have the same shoe size and same shoes as him, it seems borderline irrelevant. Is that outrageous of me to say?

I actually have an SC like this. Very old Harris tweed. Never gets worn.

Does anyone happen to know which Suit Supply model has the most shoulder structure and heaviest canvassing?

 

Cheers,

Most shoulders? Washington, I believe.
Canvassing? I do not know.
