Anyone have thoughts on solid brown sportcoats?
Because of my stubborn obsession with using dugdale (don't want to deviate from what works for me I guess), I've now narrowed down on the following:
So the 6906 seems tempting to me, 100% cashmere you know and all, but firstly I'm not sure if I want an overly warm and potentially less durable jacket.
The 1320 is 10oz (and also cheaper) and I'm actually tempted to think the less luxurious option (and one not designed for jacketting specifically) might be better, but I think it's less textured so whereas the flannel/cashmere end-on-end/birdseye looking thing would be fine for a jacket maybe this one less so? I feel like in this color it'd still be fine, and I think it'd be a bit more hardwearing and versatile in 10oz wool than in flannel. That said I don't actually know the weight for the other fabrics, I'm looking to hear back from them.
This is one of the pictures I've seen that somewhat indicates what I want, though I am less keen on specifically flannel. I'm also considering minnis brown flannel fwiw, will be hoping to see some in person. I'm probably looking to get something made very similar design wise, but 2 patch instead of 3.
Check out the w bill donegal book or porter Harding for a brown sport coat material. The selections above suck, and that's bottom line because Lord Superb said so!
