Maybe it depends on where you are. They may not want to get in trouble selling direct to countries where they have distributors.

That makes sense.

Contact the number at the bottom of the page, they'll sell direct, although they are less organized than minnis and wbill in my personal experience

Does anyone have Minnis fresco 0500 (http://www.hfwltd.com/bobb.php?b=jjm&c=5&p=1)
I think it looks like it would make a nice summer suit, but I'm not sure how representative that picture is. They call it light gray, but it looks barely lighter than what I consider mid-gray (though maybe my idea of mid gray is wrong)

Colors on website are way off, request samples from them, they'll be happy to send

In addition, the new 0516 navy in the Fresco 2 book is a shade lighter (and more attractive especially as a blazer suit IMHO) than the old 0516 navy in the original Fresco book. The old 0516 navy is still being made but as 0579.

Thanks for the suggestions, but I was really looking for something in the gray family, not navy. Also, 0516 is 9-10 oz

I really wanted 0510, but they aren't making it anymore. Someone else recommended 0501. That is the way I am leaning right now

Overcoating? C'mon, man, that's perfect for a three-season suit.
