Yep, a fresco would be perfect.

Mark's jacket must be this one.  I got the picture from his shop site.  It says Olive in linen/wool.  It looks more whitish in this one.

I like the tone but it could be darker.

Wanted to see if anyone has (or has access to) the Harrisons Mirage book. I realize I'll likely have to reach out to Harrisons directly, but figured I'd check here first. PM if you got an in.

I have it.Which no do you want a picture of?
post #10670 of 12243
Interested to see 28431 and 28429.

Have you made anything up in Mirage? I'm really intrigued by the composition and curious to know how well it tailors and wears.

Thanks for the help!

That's where I first saw the fabric (tip of the hat to Concordia). However all the images on that page seem to be quite saturated on my phone/monitor. Almost as if there's a filter of some sort. I just wanted to get a second opinion on coloring/texture/weave, etc from someone that has firsthand knowledge. I'll obviously get a sample before ordering but don't want to go through the hassle if the IRL fabric looks completely different.

I just took delivery on my blue herringbone, and it doesn't look too different from what was on the website. It's not totally CBD, but there isn't that much of a sheen, and it appears to be comfortably soft/flexible. More or less as you'd expect from the description.

Bourbonbasted, I have a swatch of the 28429. From what I can tell, the colour is slightly darker than in the Merino brother pictures. The cloth has a slight sheen when viewed from a certain angle, but I am not sure how it will look when made up. The cloth feels pretty solid to me, has a bit of a nice thickness to it.

I have the lighter blue windowpane (in the background of the photo of 28429 I believe) made up by Ercole's. It is definitely darker than the picture, and I generally agree with other comments that the cloth is soft and a bit thicker than I might have expected. It has a very slightly fuzzy texture and just a bit of a sheen. The herringbone in the photos is pretty true.

Interesting. Thanks for the feedback, gents. If the consensus is that they are a shade or so darker than the Merino Bros pics I'll certainly want to get my hands on some swatches. Considering 28431 already looks really inky-blue in the Merino picture, much darker and I may reconsider it.

Per it being a thicker cloth, do you find it wears heavy? Fully intend on a buggy lining so it shouldn't be an issue, but am interested to know if the weight/composition is (somewhat) deceiving.
post #10678 of 12243

do not find my 28420 wearing heavy at all.  Thicker than expected? Yes.  Heavy?  No.  

 

hottest i've worn it outside is 26-28'C.  coldest is minus 5.  mine's half lined; not unlined.

Mine is 1/4 lined; it doesn't really wear heavy but it seems tightly woven in the sense of not letting the breeze through.

I have a sportcoat made up in Mirage. I'm on a mobile device right now and can't find the post to link to, but search in this thread and the Ercoles thread and you should find it. I put up a pic or two. I really like it, and Frank at Ercoles is a big fan. Seems to tailed really well and so far it wears great. Gotten a lot of compliments on it.
