Not sure if there's a herringbone in there, but the the Harrison's camel hair overcoat fabric is amazing. I have traditional polo coat in that cloth which is killer.

In Harrisons Overcoating bunches, there are 3 patterns made of Pure camelhair.

 

 

 

 

 

 

There is one tan on tan herringbone but it is all wool instead.

I'm asking because I saw foo in it and asked him about it. I went to Frank's and looked at the book and for the life of me couldn't tell the difference between the Golden Bale and the regular 13oz book.

its supposed to use only the longest wools, that are hand picked from the rest etc etc etc, you know the deal. Best possible quality, but also 2x the price.

It's 90% marketing, 10% real life difference, the regular stuff is good enough

Golden bale feels softer against my skin IMO compared to one of my Harrison Oyster suits in 13 oz which feels dry and scratchy. Do you buy SC as well, it seems like you only buy suits?

I have never worn a sport coat. I don't really intend to. If I am not in a suit, I am more or less dressed like a slob in jeans and a t shirt.

Though a charcoal barleycorn sport coat over a black turtleneck and black jeans does sound kind of awesome.

Hmm do you wear casual suits on Fridays? I've been focusing on getting the basics down for suits, but I usually wear a SC on Fridays.

I consider all of my lounge suits casual. smile.gif
