I love that second-to-last photo. smile.gif

Also convinced that I'm definitely getting a DB now with my length.

Oh, crap.

Don't forget to mention on this thread when you have your next brilliant idea. I'll try to pay more attention.

And what is that fabric? Looks very interesting.

Wow that fabric is way more brown than I imagined. I thought it was more of a beige taupe.

Seems that @lordsuperb was correct when he intimated that DW is on a mission to collect jackets in every shade of brown.

Was 2016 the year of brown?

Definitely not taupe. But the closer you look, the more it becomes apparent that the fabric is actually a melange of shades from light beige to dark brown. Depending on the light, the overall effect is mid brown. It's clearly darker than the tobacco linen jacket I wore during the day, no question.

I'll share with you a picture of what I consider to be a good summer color in this variety that is not brown. I greatly like the fabric and it also "looks" breezy. Unfortunately the jacket is in an experimental shape that is now the least favorite of my jackets. I have to find the jacket first.

I like the stiffer (relative for flannel, I know) construction of Minnis. Not a fan of Uber-soft flannels that can't hold a crease.

Travelling now hence unable to verify, but I think this charcoal chalkstripe SuSu suit of mine is in EThomas flannel. It is indeed moderately soft, but seems to hold a crease quite well.

Ended up going with a length of the beige POW rather than the Drakes plaid:

Close enough to the T4 Breanish to whet my appetite.

Is Rick Flair your DB style inspiration?

post #19287 of 19906
Andy, that jacket looks really great. Steed or Hermajani? Either way, I really like the shoulders. Man I wish I got a length of that fabric.

I like your choice, Trini; the undyed plaid appeals to me too. When are thinking of getting that made up?

In my opinion there are some really exciting items in this bunch that (finally) is being offered more widely, but those ones are not among them -- they seem extremely vintagey and rustic. I feel as though there is a running trend of fascination with extremely rustic fabric, but unless you live in a cottage in the Outer Hebrides I think it looks extremely out of place.

I actually am starting to dislike smooth faux tweeds because they have rustic designs but in fact smoother than many worsteds. I have one, and have a length of Hardy Riviera that will be made up next year, but at least for me they are strictly for shoulder seasons. With a few notable exceptions, that kind of fabric seems neither here nor there. I like the rustic look of tweed, but sometimes it can be a little dry to the touch, which is why I gravitate toward Shetland and lambswool tweeds.
