I like sharkskin and nailhead worsted. Partial to fresco.

Sorry, the syntax in my question was wrong. What are your favorite patterned non flannel fabrics?

post #1939 of 2114
Oops. Seemed to miss the word patterned smile.gif

Tough to say, though. I feel most patterns look better in flannel, but I remember seeing a worsted POW and giving it a pass. Dotted pinstripes look ok in worsted.

Would you consider other non-flannel fabrics?

I'm not precluding any fabrics, just trying to shake out different categories. I don't care much for patterned suits -- trying to see if there is anything new under the sun.

That is a very formal coat. Is that the finished sleeve length?

 

Nice to see Luca not wearing a Technicolor rainbow in this picture. Or is that his cousin?

Hmmm, it looks like you have an endless supply of tweed. What's in store for the summer?

Also, any thoughts of trying a different configuration. That fabric screams for 3 roll 2.5 if your going to do a ticket pocket, or patch pockets if you plan on keeping it a 2 button, thoughts?

@Andy57 was nice enough to share his slot with me yesterday. A couple shots of my W. Bill Phoenix jacket

Possibly the next commission

Looks great!

Murl do you have any more details about weight / composition of the bottom fabric in this pic

post #1945 of 2114
I don't...but it's really nice.

No worries. Really caught my eye on their IG. Their cut looks good on you - can't wait to see the final product.

Thanks, it's quite a bit different from the first...chest is a lot leaner and quarters a bit more open. I thought I would send back my first with them, but after being able to wear it for over 6 months, I decided I like it the way it is.

If you're happy with it, that's what's important. Your pics seriously make me want to book an appointment when they're in Boston.

What's in store for summer is a new cream linen suit, a linen herringbone jacket, and a jacket made last Fall from @dieworkwear's linen/silk blend. At least, that's what's new. Oh, and a linen safari jacket made by @CraftsmanCo

 

I like tweed. It's hard to say no. But I have wanted to obtain this particular London Lounge cloth for a while now, so it went to the head of the queue when I wore the previous owner down. I don't care for 3 roll 2 or 2.5. I also did not want patch pockets. I'm happy with the blue-ish jacket that I had made with inverted-pleat patch pockets and I might do something like that again. But this Shetland is being made up essentially in identical fashion to my Glenroyal jacket. That's my comfort zone.

I saw another customer's jacket in that LL cloth last year and thought looked tremendously good. Really nice color.
