Or a paper bag.

Several colors in addition to mid grey.

If I'm thinking of the same one, that's good stuff. Very soft but wears well.

I have a pair in slightly-lighter-than-navy and one in mid grey.

The grey might be a little too rustic looking for some blazer outfits though.

Anyone have any pictures of a brown houndstooth suit made up? I saw a picture of this cloth (it's a Harrison's worsted flannel) and it looks potentially promising for a casual day suit for things like church or brunches. Bonus points if it happens to be a Harrison's cloth. Edited to provide a second picture that may capture the color better (cloth number appears to be 39227).

Looks charcoal and off-white on my screen, à la Minnis 0656

^ Added what is hopefully a better picture after tracking the thing down on the Harrison's website.

I have something similar made up as a DB suit with patch pockets. It's nice enough but I'm not sure when to wear it smile.gif

I actually got a length of H&S flannel in this colour.

I will say it is an excellent wintery causal suiting but can't be used as separates...

Thanks. I kind of suspected it would just be a casual suit and not that versatile, just a fun piece to have now that I have my core staples covered. I have enough other odd jackets that I wouldn't worry too much about needing to be able to use the thing for separates.

This might be a stupid question, but how do you order that Fresco?

Anyone know of any good alterations tailors in Brooklyn? Preferably Park Slope? A friend is asking.

Thanks!
