I don't know if your florentine MBT will travel with ties to the trunk show, but he had a tie made up with that exact fabric when I visited the shop a few weeks ago.

Exquisite Trimmings has it on sale for £55. I wish I had could jump in on that SC MTO...such an awesome fabric.

I'm definitely interested in 3.5 meters.

You and I, Murls.
Alas, economical restrictions come into play eventually. And we are still getting some consolation price anyway. wink.gif

I'd take one of those. Not sure how often I would wear as a suit, but I would wear the jacket a lot and the trousers casually. Something like Braddock posted in Pitti, but darker.

I hope he will, his tie selection is great! Did you order anything with him?

Here are a couple images of green suits from P Johnson tailors although is in cotton. I think it will look nice in Fresco in the right shade of green.

that last one is nice. Personally, wouldn't be able to wear it to work, but if I could, Id be all over it.

There's a H&S Crispaire in forrest green (3).  I have no experience with the cloth and have read on here that it is more refined than fresco - possibly not suitable as an odd jacket. But it may be an alternative rather than trying to put together a run of fresco.

edit: picture from H&S website

About dark green fresco. If it is not too solid and monotonous, I think u like it.
520ish tone is nice too but it will not become dark green.

I've been looking for something of that color, and I'm going to order the racing green new fine worsted from dugdale and see. Planning to make a blazer suit out of it, hope it'll be good for it.

That crispaire looks great but I agree, unless it has some variegation or is more loose of a weave than a normal crispaire, it might be too suit-y
