I cant commit to the cloth, at least until I see it. Likely too close to a Lesser AFB I already have.
That said, I have both 8/9oz high twist fresco (0505) and 9/10oz 2-ply (0511). The 8/9oz high twist is very lightweight, truly a summer cloth. The 9/10oz really feels to me like a year round weight, with a scratchy texture, weave is far less open. I was surprised that there was such a big difference between the two but there was, at least for me.
The difference is pretty big. I have been wearing my 10-11oz up until a few days ago when it got very cold. I would much rather have a fresco in a much lighter more open weight to be more practical in the summer as personally I am only going to start getting very heavy stuff for autumn/winter.
If you start w/ the 0510
and replace the black w/ Airforce blue, you're going to end up with a very light cloth.
NTTAWWT but a bit harder to wear than if you sub-ed AFB in for the white and navy in for the black.
Light/Mid Grey will be subbed for white, and AFB for the black, overcheck removed, the shade will resemble roger thornhill's suit in NBNW, perhaps a bit lighter like so:
I agree that fresco 501 is much lighter IRL, and will probably go with that shade for the nailhead
I'm leaning toward the 10/11 for the first run, 8/9 for the second, are there any major objections to this? Edited by Slickman - 1/3/13 at 11:00am
