Neah, it would be perfect for Slew's business.

He's often in chilly rooms.

I assume Tim Horton lives in Canada. If so, it never gets above 69 °F there, tops.

You think? I don't think this is that loud or in your face for a PoW, and I'm usually very sedate in my patterns. At the same time, the overall lighter color and the fact that it's a flannel means it is wandering outside the territory of CBD, in my mind anyway. So I think it will work better as a DB than as a more conservative, CBD-friendly single breasted.

Do you have any pics of how you've made it up or is it presently an unfunded liability for you too? biggrin.gif

I live in NYC, but will wear this while watching hockey.

Gieves and Hawkes had that PoW as a DB last winter. I tried it on, and the fit didn't work for me, but the fabric as DB was spectacular.

They had this DB a couple of years ago, but the fabric is different.

My uncle has something similar, in the H.Lesser Golden Bale. He turned it into a DB, it looked spectacular. I say go for it man.

Some of the London Lounge Fox flannels are 17 oz, so if you're interested in that weight, that book might be worth looking into. I'm having the navy chalkstripe made up now.

I know it will involve quite a bit of time and work, but I would love to have johnstons of elgin weave this gun club if we could get enough people interested. Anyone with experience in these matters care to comment?

If you looked, you would very likely find that pattern out there already, and that looks like a worsted finished up to look like a tweed to me (something like Glorious Twelfth or Worsted Alsport). If you have nothing against Italian cloth, you would very, very likely find what you're after, but I'm guessing you want a tweed.
post #3329 of 10620
Yes I am looking for a tweed. The issue with italian fabrics for me is their lack of weight and british fabrics don't always have the color palette i am looking for, although both worlds do have tons of beautiful fabric. I am looking for something specific in this picture, and I realize that it may not be made up, but I just thought to see if anyone would be interested.
