+1. They ship via TNT and took 2 days to arrive in Malaysia from the UK.

Sounds good. Do they have a website or catalog?

One more fabric question: I had a suit made up in Drapers Five Stars because I really liked the look and feel of the fabric . However I'm unsure how to describe it and thus how to look for other similar fabrics. Is Drapers Five Stars always a particular type of fabric or is it simply a line of Drapers suitings that encompasses multiple fabric types? If is always a particular kind of cloth, what is that cloth called?

Finally...
MOP buttons are not that shiny IRL. Will take some photos in next few days.
Unfortunately they are not as cool as I thought.

I would take the MOP buttons off the vest posthaste and should only really be used on an odd jacket, on a suit it looks odd.

I will definitely think about it.

Anyone have anything made up in any of the LL Fox Flannels?

Have a few suits in smiths 11 oz worsteds and they are great - hold up real well. I really like the second in the pics, might have to have that one made up.

I'm having a new suit made up in this VBC mid-grey flannel.




Likely configuration is soft 3 roll 2, flap pockets, notch lapel, spalla camacia shoulders. Pants will be flat front with belt loops - debating cuffs.

I am seeking advice regarding buttons. I'm leaning towards dark brown horn and I wear brown shoes 90% of the time, but I'm second guessing it only because as a fall-winter suit, I could see myself in cooler colours and wearing black shoes more with this suit.

Would the dark brown horn buttons look off with black shoes?

I took delivery of some Fox Flannel samples yesterday, nice stuff.
Fox Flannel vs. JJ Minnis Flannel?

I really like the navy window pane one, I'm a little hesitant to go entire sut, opinions on a single breasted sports coat in this fabric? Or should one stick to suits for this fabric?

I think it would look awesome in a suit. Do it.

That is not a sportcoating. Get a simple SB suit.

Any particular reason you're not going with gray buttons? I wouldn't do contrasted buttons on that fabric, or really a suit at all.
