Supposedly, they has just 2.5 meters left. I don't want to make it up right away, so I decided to it and figure out sometime in the future what to do with it.

But, apparently, Fox found another 2 meters of it, as their website is still showing it for sale. I think think that Fox's description of it on their Instagram feed was, perhaps, a little deceptive. Does anyone know anything about Fox's marketing practices in this regard?

Not that it matters a whole lot. It's a great cloth and it'll make an awesome jacket some day.

I think those other two meters were purchased for a jacket for anchorman 3. And then they realized there wouldn't be an anchorman 3 and sent the fabric back.

That picture of Mark is what I was thinking.

 

I also think the jacket would look good with the dreaded charcoal odd trouser!

Haven't seen any Anchorman movie. Got a pic?

I'm sure Andy will pull it off in the end. My only thought is that a burgundy sport coat with a pair of charcoal trousers might look a bit bellboy-ish.

Yes...now that I think about it...you may be correct.

Who knows though. Mark looks good above, and he's wearing basically the same thing. You never really know until you try something out.

Plus, some people are above the law.

Gentlemen, I want to do classic grey PoW suit. Last one I had had a somewhat smaller scale check (like lower two samples below). Now I am advised by my tailor to get larger scale check (something like top sample in picture below). I have to admit it looks more distinctive, and I have no need of being subtle and sober anymore. What would you prefer and why?
Thanks

Thanks. We'll see. I wasn't really thinking charcoal trousers. :)

It's actually Rich Wine, not burgundy. Big difference! Rich wine is waaaaaaay easier to pull off. What am I, crazy?

Rich Wine should be foo.gif's custom title.

It's a question for the ages, sure. I believe Aristotle dealt with it extensively in his Optics and his advice on POW boiled down to (and I agree)  'Sports coat go loud, suit go subtle'.

I once owned a pair of Rich Wine PoW trousers. I'd have to agree with @Pliny and Aristotle.
