Have you looked at solaro? Similar effect just with a red cast.

I figured the weave would have restricted the pattern...

Solaro has always been part of my original consideration but it's too heavy for a summer suit IMO.

Looks like 3.5 meters of the Tobacco Brown Fresco I had specially made up by Minnis is available from an original buyer. Price is $250 which covers shipping and PayPal fees. It is made up below from NY Ranger. You can see how it works in both sunlight and shade. If anyone is interested just shoot me a PM and I'll put you and the seller in touch.

This sold. Thanks guys!

Ugh, I've been wanting to get that tobacco Fresco.

By the way, what do you guys recommend for a pair of bog-standard light grey flannel trousers? I'm on a budget, so looking for something entry-level. What do you think in terms of weight, mills, price?

Thanks!

Try Harrison (Burley), very budget friendly, real flannel, very wrinkle resistant, It was a good buy. Explore in their 'vintage' made clothes, it is the best part of it.

No they aren't, obviously if you mean no air-con whole day on the street nothing will work, Solaro gives a nice breeze with mild wind, just like any other 'summer' fabric.

Ha. I actually like the look of the cotton solaros but I refuse to spend $$$$ on a cotton suit - hence the desire for a wool-blend.

Four London Lounge fabrics and on the bottom, a Loro Piana Winter Zelander.

Houndstooth looks very good too. I have the Agnelli made into a sport coat, very tempted to get some fabric for pants and make it a full suit.

 +1 - beautiful stuff.

How's that Shetland houndstooth, cp? I'm on the list for getting the herringbone if it ever gets made up.

Gazman poasted a pic of it made up as a suit.

It - quite typically for him - looked great. With a subdued shirt / blue tie - very wearable.

Can you still order it? I'd definitely pick up a length myself - though I think I'd like it more as a tweed suiting.

They're talking about making a re-run of it. I think they're close. I've only had my 3-piece of it for a month and love it already.
