I always get a kick out of GusW's posts because of the writing style. They almost always use the first-person and have a short, reportorial delivery and can-do, positive note. It's vaguely like the style of 1950s advice columns. I can't put my finger on it, but it's something that has amused me for some time. That first sentence cracks me up. Sounds like something Ann Landers would write.

 

I agree that one's good/bad colors may have some sort of biosignature unique to each person and it's best to figure these out immediately and avoid the bad ones like the plague.

Yes indeed I have bought few times directly from Brisbane Moss, but I am based in England and I always explained that I needed it for CMT. I have both Corduroy and cotton drills from them, and IMO have an unbeatable price/quality ratio. It was a while ago (I still have a lenght to be made up) but prices were around £10 per meter...
My only comment would be about colour fastness on the red one, but that may have been the "wet" Eco dry cleaning I used for a while.

The below is the last I had made by Gianni Volpe at the end of May.
