I have a pair of tan Finnmeresco pants. It has some nice heathering to it, but it's not as porous as Fresco (and the weight is still 9/10).

If you're going to take a look at Finnmeresco, you might as well also look at H&S's Crispaire. 332033 is a bit more yellow than Fresco 519; 332035 is a bit more grey. There's also a tan nailhead in 332015.

Does anyone know how tall Torsten stands?



Also, I think Guida's style of jacket works better as a casual piece for a summer suit or an odd SC. Thoughts?

Thanks Concordia and DWW.  I have suits (1 each) in the heavier fimeresco and standard crispaire.  Iirc, Ed recommended crispaire to me before.  I'll take a look at both.  

 

I'm looking for something pretty pale.  Not tan, more of an off-white, something like the LL jacketing called "oats":  https://www.flickr.com/photos/thelondonlounge/7900382746/

 

Edit:  I should say that I'd also be open to a wool/linen blend.  Or wool/hemp.

Oh yea, then the ones I suggested are definitely not it.

That looks like a nice color though.

What about that Delfino we talked about? Distributor price is really high, but you can probably just go through your tailor. Assuming the new color works for you.

Good pt. about the Delfino hemp blend.  I saw it made up as a jacket, but I think the fabric could be used for a suit, and thus for pants.  Hmm...

 

It wouldn't be quite as wrinkle-resistant as I've been hoping for, but it would be better than pure linen.

Would welcome suggestions for an Italian or Irish LINEN with donegal like flecking in the 10-13oz range

Looking for navy, blue, sky blue, rust, and dark browns

Why are you looking for Minnis particularly? Fox makes the canonical off-white flannel in both a heavier woolen flannel and a lighter (comparatively) worsted flannel.

He's looks as tall as the door frame. Usually thats about 80 inches or 6-8.

Thinking of getting a navy seersucker made up. Anyone know where I could find a fabric like this:

I'd say not an inch taller than 8'9" from the looks of that pic!

No compulsion for Minnis over any other...just curiosity.

There was some discussion a few pages back. Just do a search for seersucker.
