Here's the Fox Flannel Classic Grey Glen Check. On top is the Minnis 0300 and 0301 for comparison. The picture is a touch brighter than in person.


I notice that 301 is not currently on the Minnis website. Due for replacement, I hope?

Looking ahead to next spring (thoughts sprung from a ridiculously warm autumn...), has anyone had occasion to use Harrisons Regency? Seems a tad less practical than Frontier but filling much the same gap with a better variety of patterns.

Has anyone ever gotten a linen suit fully lined, am I asking for trouble if I do? My tailor talked me out of getting the jacket quarter lined.

He wanted you to fully line it?  What was his reasoning?  I'd be willing to bet there isn't a person here that has done it.

With it being cream linen he said it would be see through and would get sweat stains if i quarter lined the jacket.

Ok, I think he has a point there.

yes, fully lined jacket, not uncommon, typically english. no trouble, perhaps marginally less cool.

+1 Steed won't do anything less than fully lined on anything, regardless of cloth. The same argument for sweating/staining was presented to me.

In particular, Mina encourages lining cream linen pants because of its translucency. I imagine only the very densest Irish linen (or a darker color) may not have this problem.

Cream linen suits are awesome in theory but I always worried about keeping them clean. For me tan linen was a workable compromise. I got it quarter lined but get the argument for fuller lining.

Less lining = more work.

Not even buggy lined on a Fresco? That really is stubborn.
