May just be me, but I have a mental block on getting a bespoke suit made out of cotton. Seems like an expensive process for a (subjectively) cheap fabric. I think a high twist fresco or linen would be a better use of funds/time. And either add more character, IMO. I think it stems from an interview I once saw with Harry Winston (?) where he said he had a hard time justifying recommending bespoke cotton suits to any client (in this case I believe it was seersucker), since materials are so much cheaper.
Perhaps once I cover all my essential bases I'll be tempted to look at cotton and I obviously realize it becomes cheaper with CMT, but still, something keeps me from seeing it as a good idea. YMMV.
Olive cotton is awesome, I have one and I love it.
I also have a piece of olive linen and other olive gab that I wonder if I will ever get made.
I would do the olive gab before the linen. I have a lighter green Lesser tropical liability that I am waiting to fund. I have another light green tropical (with some reddish shots) that Solito made a DB coat out of and is holding (unless he sold it); on the other leg, Ambrosi sent me the pents.
After I finish my current order with NSM, I'm going to ask for an olive cotton suit. At the rate they visit San Francisco, this means I should receive it by the end of 2015, at which point I'll post pics in the summer of 2016 and you'll all be sorry for what you said in 2013.
Adding to olivey cloth pics: on the left is Harrisons Frontier in Olive and on the right is Mersolair in light green. The Frontier is quite flat/lifeless and I'm not sure I will bother getting made up. Mersolair is vibrant and has texture - will be an unlined jacket.
