This would probably be the order I'd wear them in:

Light blue
Medium blue
Pink
Red
Green
Burgundy

The last 3 are all pretty close though.

Light and Medium blue, primarily for me. I think I'd be open to a light brown or pale green stripe.

On the side, I have this Brooks Brothers buttondown tattersall shirt, it's a simple solid navy grid on a white base, the squares are maybe 1x1cm and the fabric is a pinpoint oxford I think. It's getting along in years and I'd love to see such a fabric offered in MTM or OTR. I don't see it in the current custom offerings and I can't remember if it was offered in the past (probably was as it's a basic pattern).  I enjoy a pinpoint OCBD for business wear because it doesn't get frumpy by day's end and this pattern seems  incredibly versatile to me, I even find myself wearing it with a block/thick striped tie when I'm feeling a bit more trad. 

 

For reference, imagine this but with navy instead of red/blue:

We're going to finally run a proper hopsack in Navy. Question is styling?. No Shoulder Padding? Patch Pockets? Full lining or Half Lining?

 

Suggestions? I have a basic idea of what we're going to do, but thought I'd put it out to the community first.

Probably in this order 

 

Light blue (own one, love it)

Lavender (have a poplin in a stripe like this and would love it in an oxford)

Medium blue

Pink

Grey

Burgundy

Green

I'll cast my vote for very minimal padding, a triple patch with no flaps, and half lined.

Is this a suit or a jacket? If jacket I agree with the above. For a suit, id prefer flap pockets on the bottom and welted on the chest like your typical suits.

Just a sportcoat.

No shoulder padding, patch pockets, lined only in shoulders and sleeves, and a very light canvassing in chest.  You should also offer matching pants with it.

Cold be a possibility. But would most probably end up selling them as separates.

That's what I was getting at.  Offer the option of buying the pants too, if you were so inclined.  I would potentially be interested in a hopsack triple patch pocket blazer suit from you guys.

post #2594 of 6230

I won't be buying because I have a true hopsack sportcoat from SS I like quite a bit, but I'd say patch hip pockets, barchetta chest (like your current offerings) and I do like the idea of offering pants as separates. Minimal shoulder padding and light canvassing. Half-lined.

Late to the party. Here is my input.

I like medium blue and pink. I wouldn't mind trying burgundy as well.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

Pretty much align with other gents here. Patch hip pockets, barchetta chest and minimal to no shoulder padding. I would buy the pants too.

 

Do you have medium gray hopsack? I would buy a medium gray hopsack suit from your full canvas program.
