I concur with that.

Has anyone checked it out vs. the new Minnis fawn flannels?
post #16612 of 19906
I'd say it definitely appears creamier

Thanks. It is comfortable, yes. Actually, I'd say it's about as close a cut as I'd like and yet still retain that feeling of putting on something that just fits. I kinda wish I could press a button and just duplicate it in a variety of cloths. But I have enough experience now to realize that's not the way it works.

Any recommendations for a durable 10z grey sharkskin? Bonus points if it's breathable too.

No, it's a rerun of the TW10 that was made years ago in grey, but this time will be made in navy and brown.

Smith's Blue Riband has some but twills are not known to be breathable like plain weaves.

I love the Blue Riband bunch myself. My suits from that bunch are not the most breathable but I find them wearable in the tropical heat. I have not used Schofield & Smith before but I understand that their Best English Tradition bunch has grey sharkskins: http://www.schofieldandsmith.co.uk/cloth-en.php?n30=T-1600X-22

Yes, each cloth has its own characteristics as do the canvases, and nothing is exactly sewn the same. During the fittings, though, the fittings can be adjusted towards what you want to feel, and take advantage of the new characteristics. The second fitting, putting on the sleeves and collar may change the body fit somewhat. Hopefully, not drastically, which would have to be sorted out again. This reminds me of my grandfather. So much is about the customer and very little about the tailor. After all! It will be the customer wearing the garment. The end result should be a work of art with all the details you want. So the "very little about the tailor" is the arrangement of all the details, lines, shaping, etc. into a work of art. Some customers are good, sometimes better, at this to.

And some tailors, however skilled, have trouble hearing certain customers, or are so intent on pushing them in a particular direction that they misinterpret instructions.
