I have an NSM in that. Soft and relatively good at keeping a crease.

Can anyone recommend a slubby linen (in black)? I also saw despots say that with black linen you have to use the reverse side to avoid sheen. Anyone know about this and any disadvantages in using the reverse side?

Right now, I'm thinking of:

Any one else have this made up recently?

Love the medium weight Fox Flannel stuff. I have this same one in the slightly darker shade. Wear it regularly.

Same. Speaking of flannel: Looking for a lighter weight slate blue flannel but they don't do it. Only found one from Ariston.

I saw some interesting blue flannels in a 9 oz. weight from VBC when looking on Luxier's website.

Hmm thanks I'll have a look. I guess if you want light flannel you're going to end up with Italian usually.

Edit saw the flannel. That looks good but I guess I want something more greyish and less vibrant.

I've not seen this in tailors' shops, but Fox does have a lighter-weight collection. One possible candidate:

You sure you want a lighter weight flannel? Durability concerns seem to be abound with the lighter weights

Thanks. I would've thought most lighter weight stuff is going to be worsted anyway which I don't mind overly. I just kinda like the cuddly kinda of relaxed as opposed to the more um suave? kind you get with linen for a transitional jacket. I'd even get cashmere if they weren't so warm.

Fox's 290 collection also has a couple of interesting shades.

That's what she.... never mind.

 

I think it's the first time I actually dislike such a voluminous lapel roll. It almost seems like too much here.
