Linen shirts and socks might help a little.

This was inspired by Mark Cho's suit (pictured below) and hence will be called 'The Mark'. Mark is also getting a length hence those who are interested, just drop me a PM on the price. Prices are reasonable' no crazy prices though it took 3 attempts to get the colour and design right. Apologies for the quality of the pictures though; my camera skills are not that stellar smile.gif






Very attractive. Not sure I need something like this, but it is a very successful result.

Commissioning a new navy blazer. 2 patch, notch lapel, barchetta breast, brown horn buttons

Preference is for something 3 seasons (Fall,Winter,Spring). I'm trying somebody new who has access to mostly VBC fabrics and some ariston.

Any recomendations for a classic hopsack weave that fits the bill?

Doing the exact same thing. In need of a new beater. Interested to hear insight.

Smith's Bothany should have a mid weight serge/hopsack blur fabric

I think this photo just sealed the deal on my getting a grey houndstooth flannel suit at some point...only question is SB 3-piece or DB.

Vox's houndstooth flannel was particularly nice.

For sure. That first piqued my interest.

Are you thinking of making one with a red overcheck? I suspect the more prominent the overcheck, the better it is as a three piece SB.

I am going to say that the overcheck on that fabric is overkill and detracts from it.

Definitely. I didn't even notice it until you mentioned it. Prefer simple.

There was some discussion of this a while ago in a foo threak, post 209 on. Some debate over whether Lesser's or Minnis version is better.

I have long planned one too.



edited to add - whatever you do, stop reading that thread at post 240.
